He hardly looks the modern profile of a professional golfer, but Dylan Meyer has serious game. The recent University of Illinois graduate, coached by USGTF Master Teaching Professional Michael Wolf, has a promising future. Although he is one of the shortest hitters in professional golf, Meyer finds ways to score besides hitting 300-yard drives. He recently scored his first top-10 finish on the PGA Tour at the Sanderson Farms Championship.

Meyer is not the biggest guy out there, and his glasses remind some of Tom Kite. But he knows how to work his way around a golf course and to put up low scores. Meyer also battles ulcerative colitis, a disease that has also afflicted fellow touring professional Heath Slocum. At first, Meyer was down about the diagnosis, but he then likened it to golf and bouncing back after bogeying a hole. Those closest to him are confident his mindset will allow him to overcome any future health issues that may arise.

To date, Meyer’s biggest victory came in the 2016 Western Amateur, perhaps the post prestigious amateur title in all of golf next to the U.S. Amateur. If he keeps on track, he’s sure to capture bigger victories in the coming years.
