“One of my best friends growing up, his mom was my third-grade
teacher. She was going through some old files and cleaning out some of
her storage, and she came across a letter that I wrote in 2008,” said
Ogletree in explaining the note’s origins. “She gave it to my mom. My
mom’s also a schoolteacher at our local school, so she was like, ‘Hey, I
think you might want to have this.’

“This was a couple of years
ago … my mom framed it, put it in my room knowing that one day I would
be a professional golfer, and she’s like, ‘This is going to be super
cool.’ Super fortunate that she kept that letter, but it was definitely a
cool way to announce turning professional.”

Ogletree graduated
from Georgia Tech this past May with a degree in business
administration, and now lives in Atlanta with TOUR member Vincent
Whaley, a fellow Georgia Tech alum.

The 22-year-old gleans insight
on TOUR life from Whaley and fellow Yellow Jacket alums like Stewart
Cink, Chesson Hadley and Matt Kuchar, among many others.

“I feel comfortable asking any of them for tidbits or advice that I might want to know about,” Ogletree said.

Beginning this week, he strives to channel that advice as a touring pro. And his third-grade self is smiling.
