Who We Are
Best friends and college teammates while at Florida A&M University, Shepherd and Wesley have ultimate goals of walking the fairways on the PGA TOUR. Young and strong, they learned the game through The First Tee (Wesley – First Tee of Atlanta; Shepherd – First Tee of Augusta). A member of the First Tee of Augusta Wall of Fame, Shepherd also competed in the 2004 and 2007 First Tee Open at Pebble Beach, and was a First Tee Scholar in 2007. Wesley was a member of his high school region championship golf team in 2005, and was team MVP in 2006 and 2007.
Shepherd and Wesley first met on the golf course as teammates at Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, Fla., where they played all four years. The two recorded multiple top-10 finishes in college, highlighted by Wesley’s T8 finish at the PGA Minority Collegiate Golf Championship his senior year. Off the course, both helped each other through difficult times in college, and they’ve grown to become best friends. Currently, they are competing on the various mini tours as they push each other to realize their goal of competing on the PGA TOUR.
