2018 BYU Hall of Fame
After winning not one, but two Utah State Amateur Championships while still in high school, Daniel Summerhays set expectations high before he even joined the BYU men’s golf team. Yet through his time as a Cougar and as a professional, Summerhays has continued to rise to the challenge and represent BYU well.
In his first year on campus starting in 2002, Summerhays won Mountain West Conference Freshman of Year honors in addition earning All-MWC and Academic All-MWC recognition. Upon returning home from his mission to Chile and despite not touching a golf club his two years there, Summerhays continued his ascent in 2005-06, with multiple top finishes on his way to being named Golf Coaches Association of America All-Region and All-America honorable mention.
During his junior year in 2006-07, Summerhays joined an extremely elite group by shooting a 60 at the PING/Golfweek Preview, becoming just the fourth collegiate golfer to shoot a round that low. Summerhays would go on to lead BYU to a first-place finish at the MWC Championships, again earning All-MWC and Academic All-MWC. He was also named a CoSIDA Academic All-American. At the NCAA Championships, Summerhays took fourth overall, earning a first-team All-America citation to become the 10th first-teamer in BYU history and the first in 21 years. In all, Summerhays recorded a 69.9 stroke average on the season, the lowest NCAA average in the country.
Competing as an amateur, Summerhays won the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Invitational, a Nationwide Tour event, in July 2007. A short time later he opted to join the Nationwide Tour as a pro where he played until 2010. After earning his card, Summerhays began his PGA Tour career in 2011. He’s since recorded 19 top-10 finishes, including third place at the 2016 PGA Championship and an eighth-place finish at the 2016 U.S. Open.
Summerhays graduated magna cum laude with a degree in finance from the BYU Marriott School of Management in 2008. He and his wife, Emily, have four children: Jack, Patton, William and Lydia.
