Add the word ‘professional’ to twins Parker and Pierceson Coody’s substantive resumes. The Texas-Ex’s and former globally-ranked amateurs have started their professional golf careers and aren’t short on success.
When twins Pierceson and Parker Coody graduated last spring from the University of Texas, they were fresh off a National Championship. Now the two, grandsons of 1971 Masters champ Charles Coody, are making their way through the professional ranks with hopes of making the PGA Tour and joining the ever-growing list of former Longhorns in professional golf.
Pierceson and Parker are current competitors on the Korn Ferry Tour and PGA Tour – Canada, respectively, and have each seen success on their professional paths.
Pierceson’s eyes are on the horizon, though, as he hopes to one day compete against his brother on the PGA Tour — golf’s biggest stage.
Pierceson and Parker saw countless collegiate and tournament wins, and that trend hasn’t stopped in their young professional careers. Through 11 events played, Pierceson has three top-10 finishes including a first-place finish at the Live and Work in Maine Open.
Parker, a participant in nine eight events so far in the PGA Tour – Canada, already has a first-place finish in the Centre Point Canada Rail Park Manitoba Open.
Of course, having former Masters’ champion Charles Coody as your grandfather has its perks in adjusting to life in professional golf, but Parker’s path to the pro ranks was a noticeable change of pace.
“It’s crazy the amount of golf (you play),” Parker said. “I didn’t realize how much it would truly be.”
Parker’s brother agreed that the change of pace was jarring and a definite change from the rate of play in college.
Pierceson is coming off a wrist injury known as an ulnar entrapment he suffered during the Korn Ferry Tour Championship. However, the 22-year-old expects to be back on the course as early as this week.
The first-year pro did not make the top-25 cut for Korn Ferry to gain a PGA Tour card, but Pierceson looks forward to gaining special invites to compete at up to seven PGA Tour events next year.
In addition to the twins’ professional success, Parker is excited about the opportunity to add to the Longhorns’ rich history of professional golfers like Masters champions Jordan Spieth and world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler.
“It’s really special, and (UT) is one of the most prominent golf schools in the country,” Parker said. “So if you add to that, you’re doing something right.”
Like many Longhorns before them, the twins’ professional paths were proceeded by successful collegiate careers. And one tour, in particular, wanted to cash in on that success.
Coming out of college, Pierceson had the opportunity to join the newly-started LIV Golf, but declined out of hope of pursuing his childhood dreams.
“I don’t play golf solely for money,” Pierceson said. “I know if I get to the PGA Tour and succeed, I won’t really be focused on making money.”
With the skillset and mental approach that twins Pierceson and Parker have, it may not be long until we see them on the PGA Tour competing for a green jacket like the Longhorns who preceded them.
