Get to Know Your Ghyd
Jay was born and raised in the South. His father, Jay Haas, is a professional golfer currently playing on the PGA Champions tour. His brother, Bill Haas, is also a professional golfer currently playing on the PGA tour. Jay himself played professional golf on multiple smaller tours for 9 years.
As a player trying to make his way on the PGA tour, Jay spent many weeks on the road in the U.S., as well as Europe, Africa, and Japan. In 2011, with his first child on the way, he started caddying for his brother Bill. After winning the Tour Championship and the Fedex Cup title with his brother, Jay decided it was a good idea to continue caddying. This has taken him to many exotic locations, including some not-so-exotic locations around the world.
Now 6 years later, with 4 wins and a Fedex Cup title as a caddy, Jay has decided to utilize his vast knowledge of the game with his unique experiences. This year, Jay has started a new chapter in his life, Haas Golf. Years of working hand-in-hand with professional golfers and instructors at he highest level has driven Jay to a new passion, teaching. Haas Golf is a school of golf instruction based on all Jay has learned from the top instructors, players, and caddies around the world.
Haas Golf has teamed up with Ghyd Adventures to create a golf experience unlike any other.
My freshman year of college I travelled with my team to Japan for a tournament. After somehow managing to lose both my passport and my ticket home, I spent a whole day sightseeing in Tokyo because my translator got everything handled in an hour.
