My name is Connor Nolan. I was born in Placentia, California on July 25, 1998. My dad was a golf instructor, so I started playing the game from the moment I could walk... and golf has been a part of my life ever since. As a young kid I played baseball, basketball, and football, but Golf is really where my passion was. By High School I decided to focus solely on developing my game full-time. In junior golf, I played in the Toyota Tour Cup Series, as well as AJGA tournaments. I also qualified for the 2016 U.S. Junior Championship at The Honors Course in Tennessee, as well as the 2017 U.S. Amateur Championship at The Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles, California. I received a Division 1 golf scholarship to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga where I played for 5 years. Due to a COVID-Year, I was granted an additional year of playing eligibility before graduating and turning professional in September 2022. Since turning professional, I have played in Asher Tour events as well as Bo Tour events. I played in the 2023 U.S. Open Sectional Qualifier where I shot -6 over 36 holes; narrowly missing the opportunity to play in my first major professional start.
I have been with J. BUTLER GOLF since the summer of 2023. In my short time being with JBG I have been thrilled with the support, and I am super excited to grow alonside the company.
