Although Marty Fleckman spent 13 years on the PGA Tour in the 1960s and 1970s, he is best remembered for a brilliant amateur career.
He played on three NCAA championship teams at the University of Houston and won the individual title in 1965 with a record-setting two day total 135. He was named All-American in 1965, won medalist honors at the 1966 Western Amateur, and played on the Walker Cup team in 1967.
Fleckman won the 1967 Cajun Classic Open Invitational in his first start as a member of the PGA Tour. He is only one of four other players in Tour history to win his first tour event, and the first to do it.
Currently he is the Director of Golf Instruction at Blackhorse Teaching Center in Cypress, Texas. He is also a consultant in the design of golf clubs for Players Group.
