James Driscoll was born October 9th, 1977 in Boston, Massachusetts. He won his very first golf game when he was only 15 which was the Club Championship at his own club of Charles River. Only a short year later he won the Massachusetts Junior Championship being the youngest winner ever of the Massachusetts Amateur. Driscoll went on to becoming the second-ranked junior in the country in 1996 when he was 19. He attended the University of Virginia and now lives in Jupiter, Florida. James Driscoll is 6 foot and weights 190 pounds. Driscoll made his debut in 1998 then turned Pro in 2001. He has been off and on the PGA Tour for a couple years now and is a member of the 2001 Walker Cup team.
After winning his first professional event, the Nationwide Tour event at the Virginia Beach Open in 2004, he continued to succeed in his career. In 2005, Driscoll received runner-up in New Orleans at the PGA Tour’s Zurich Classic. Then, in 2009 he won second runner-up in the Valero Texas Open. He earned his 2008 PGA Tour membership by his top 25 finish on the 2007 Nationwide Tour money list. Driscoll’s best finish was a T9th at AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
In April of 2013, he launched his Birdies for Boston Campaign to raise money for the Boston Marathon bombings which happened two blocks away from his apartment there. For two weeks, every birdie that he made he would donate $1,000 and ended up contributing a total of $9,000 to The One Fund Boston. This will help aide families that were affected by this tragic event.
