About Greg Kraft

By Cameron McCarter

Greg Kraft is an American-born PGA professional from Detroit, Michigan, who turned pro in 1986 and joined the PGA Tour in 1992.


Kraft has played in both the Nationwide Tour and the PGA Tour. He had victories at the Northeast Pennsylvania Classic in 2005 and the Puerto Rico Open in 2009.


In 2002, Kraft filed a lawsuit against the PGA Tour because of the Tour's inability to warn players of the possibility of contracting coccidiomycosis. He was diagnosed with the disease after the 2002 Tucson Open.


Kraft graduated from the University of Tampa in 1986 with a degree in business and turned professional shortly after.

Loosing his Tour Card

In 2005, Greg lost his PGA Tour card and played in the Nationwide Tour for the season. He returned to the PGA Tour in 2006.

PGA Averages

Kraft is below all of the PGA average statistics for driving distance, accuracy, greens and regulations, and scrambling.
