Isenhour was born in Salisbury, North Carolina. He played college golf at Georgia Tech and turned professional in 1990.

Hawk incident[edit]

On December 12, 2007, while being filmed for an educational video, Isenhour killed a red-shouldered hawk by hitting it with a golf ball. According to court documents, Isenhour was irritated by the noises the hawk was making. He hit golf balls at the bird until one struck it in the head. On August 29, 2008, he accepted a plea agreement "to serve one year of probation, donate $1,500 to the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary in Jupiter, Fla., and pay a $500 fine. The former PGA Tour player was also required to undergo 40 hours of community service and attend a four-hour anger-management class."[1]
