Player Notes

Started playing the game at age 10, going to the course with his father. . .He obtained his Tour card in 1978 and in the 1982 TPC, he was tied for the lead after three rounds with Bruce Lietzke. . .When he birdied the 14th the last day, he still was tied with Lietzke and Jerry Pate. However, he three-putted the 15th and though he birdied the 16th, Pate birdied the 17th and 18th to win it. . .Bryant tied with Scott Simpson for 2nd. . .Later in the year he was runner-up in the Quad Cities Open. The following year, he again was runner-up in the Byron Nelson Classic. . .In 1984 he not only tore up his left shoulder, but his father and wife Sue, were stricken with serious illnesses. . .
