Jerry Foltz (born August 14, 1962) is an American former professional golfer and current commentator for the LIV Golf Invitational Series. He was formerly a long time commentator for the Golf Channel.[1]

Amateur career[edit]

Foltz was born in Las Vegas, Nevada. He played his college golf for the University of Arizona and was an All-Pac-10 selection in 1984. In 1989, he won the Arizona Amateur.

Professional career[edit]

Foltz turned professional in 1990, and claimed one victory on the Nike Tour (now the Web.com Tour) in 1995. He has seven career holes-in-one. In 1990, three days after turning professional, Foltz sustained a serious back injury in an auto accident involving a drunk driver. Foltz was determined to overcome the injury and went on to success on the Nike Tour.
