Born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Notah Begay III is the only full-blooded Native American to have ever played on the PGA Tour. He began his collegiate career in 1990 at Stanford University, receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in economics while becoming a 3-time All-American and leading Stanford to a national championship in 1994.

In 1998, Notah shot the first “59” in the history of the Korn Ferry tour and later enjoyed a 12-year career on the PGA Tour, including 4 wins and a spot on the U.S. Presidents Cup Team in 2000. Off the course, Notah joined the NBC Sports broadcast team in 2012, providing commentary at golfs’ biggest events. Today, he continues his work as a sports analyst, while also playing on the Champions Tour.

Throughout his career, Notah has used his platform to help Native American youth achieve their full potential. He established the NB3 Foundation in 2005 with a vision of empowering all children to live healthy, active lives. Through NB3FIT programs, community outreach grantmaking, and special initiatives, the foundation has improved the lives of young Native Americans across the country. AMERIND is a proud sponsor of the foundation’s work.
