Jeff Sluman came to Florida State in 1979 with the potential to be a great golfer. In 1978 the Rochester, NY native showed just how good he could play when he won the New York State Amateur Tournament. During his career at Florida State, Sluman was one of the best golfers on a talented team. The Florida State golf team won three tournaments and the Metro Conference Title in 1979, his junior year, and the 1980 team advanced to the NCAA tournament. After graduation, Sluman joined the ranks of former Florida State golfers on the PGA Tour, and one of only two Americans to win a major U.S. tournament when he won the prestigious PGA Championship. Despite his small frame, Sluman is considered a giant by other tour players who respect not only his ability to play the game, but also his outstanding wit and personality.
