Luke List (born January 14, 1985) is an American professional golfer who currently plays on the PGA Tour.

Amateur career[edit]

List was born in Seattle, Washington. He was the runner-up at the 2004 U.S. Amateur to Ryan Moore, finishing 2 down. With his runner-up finish he was extended an invitation to play in the 2005 Masters, in which he finished T33 and recorded an ace during the Par 3 Contest held on Wednesday. He won the Jones Cup Invitational in 2005. He went to high school at Baylor School in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He graduated from Vanderbilt University in 2007 and turned professional.

Professional career[edit]

List joined the Nationwide Tour in 2010. He recorded four top-10 finishes during his first two years on Tour. He finished 38th on the money list in 2011 and led the tour in eagles. List won his first professional event on April 29, 2012 at the South Georgia Classic on the Nationwide Tour. The following week, List had a chance to win the Stadion Classic at UGA when he held a one shot lead over Hudson Swafford heading to the final hole of the tournament. But he bogeyed the hole while Swafford birdied it, and List finished in a tie for second.

List is one of the most popular players on the Nationwide Tour due to his length off the tee, aggressive play, and his friendly personality, and many golf analysts have described his swing as "textbook" and "PGA Tour ready."
