Born Bradley Fred Adamonis on January 16, 1973, in Providence, Rhode Island, this American golfer graduated from Miami University in Ohio and currently plays on the PGA Tour. He turned pro immediately after graduating from university with a degree in sports management in 1996. While in school, Adamonis was a First Team Mid-American Conference in his senior year and won the New England Invitational in 1994 before he turned pro.

Adamonis was on the Nationwide Tour from 2002 to 2004 and 2006 and 2007. He was also on the NGA Hooters Tour in 2003 and 2005. His first tournament win came in 2007 at the WNB Golf Classic. Placing in the top 25th in qualifying school made him eligible for the PGA Tour in 2008. He managed to place just high enough on the money list to retain his spot for 2009 and recorded three top ten finishes for the year, among them as a runner up at the John Deere Classic which was won by Kenny Perry after a three way play-off with Jay Williamson.

Family troubles came his way when his father was diagnosed with multiple cancers in 2005. However, Adamonis expressed that his dad’s fighting spirit is helping him get better at his game. He himself suffers from intermittent vertigo, which plagues him even while he plays on the green. When this occurs, all he can do is wait for the symptoms to subside and he continues to play. He has played on the St. Jude’s Classic, which is a tour that contributes funds to several societies for battling cancer.
