Early yearsEdit

Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Dunlap grew up in Sarasota, Florida.[1] The valedictorian of the class of 1981 at Sarasota High School, he accepted an athletic scholarship to attend the University of Florida in Gainesville, where he played for the Florida Gators men's golf team in NCAA competition from 1982 to 1985.[2] During his 1985 senior season, the Gators won the Southeastern Conference (SEC) team championship, and Dunlap was recognized as a first-team All-SEC selection, an All-American, and the Golf Week Male Amateur of the Year.[2][3]

While at Florida, he became a member of Delta Tau Delta fraternity.[4] Dunlap graduated from Florida with a bachelor's degree in finance in 1986, the same year his younger sister, Page Dunlap, won the individual NCAA Women's Golf Championship while playing for the Florida Gators women's golf team.

Dunlap played on the Web.com Tour in 1990, 1998, and from 2003 to 2013, and has two victories. He played on the PGA Tour in 1996–97, 1999–2002, and 2012. His best finishes on PGA Tour were a trio of tied for third places: 1996 Bell Canadian Open, 1999 Doral-Ryder Open, and 2000 The Players Championship and his best finish on the year-end money list was 44th in 2000. He had top ten finishes in major championships at the Open Championship in 1999 at Carnoustie and the PGA Championship in 2000 at Valhalla.

Champions TourEdit

Dunlap turned 50 in August 2013 and began playing the Champions Tour full-time in 2014; he won his first title at the Boeing Classic near Seattle that August, defeating Mark Brooks on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff. At the par-5 18th, Dunlap's second shot stopped four feet (1.3 m) from the pin. Brooks' birdie attempt missed from 30 feet (9 m) and Dunlap two-putted for the win.[5][6] The winner's share was $300,000 and along with the trophy, he received a leather flight jacket.[7]
