|Achievements and awards|
Born in Santa Barbara, California, Randolph learned the game of golf from his father, Sam Randolph Sr., who was the head professional at La Cumbre Country Club for 38 years. As a teen, Randolph and fellow future PGA Tour player, Billy Andrade, won the Junior World Cup in 1981.
He played college golf for the University of Southern California and was a three-time first-team All-American with 13 collegiate wins. After finishing as runner-up in 1984, Randolph won the U.S. Amateur the following year. He also won the California State Amateur, the Haskins Award, and was low amateur at The Masters in 1985. In 1986, Randolph was the low amateur at both The Masters and the U.S. Open; he turned pro and joined the PGA Tour later that year.
Randolph played on the PGA Tour from 1987–1992, and won one event, the Bank of Boston Classic in 1987. His best finish in a major championship occurred as an amateur; T-18 at The Masters in 1985. From 1993 to 2002, Randolph split his playing time between the PGA Tour and the Nationwide Tour, mostly on the Nationwide Tour. He had three T-2 finishes in Nationwide Tour events in the 1990s, but no victories. After his playing career waned, Randolph moved into the teaching ranks.
