CT native Brett Stegmaier achieves lifelong dream to play on PGA Tour

There was a time when Connecticut native Brett Stegmaier (above) gave up playing golf competitively.

That was in 2010. Stegmaier, a former Hamden resident and member at New Haven Country Club, was an assistant pro at Silver Springs CC in Ridgefield. The time spent on playing the mini-tours was over for Stegmaier — or so he thought.

“(Teaching) wasn’t for me. I was too good a player give up that fast,” Stegmaier said.

Five years later, Stegmaier has accomplished the ultimate dream of any male golfer: playing on the PGA Tour. Stegmaier finished ninth in the Web.Com Tour Finals. The top 25 money leaders from those four events earned spots on the PGA Tour for the 2015-16 season.
