Stiggy Hodgeson

It’s true, good things come in small packages. Ranked No. 12 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking, this energetic Englishman has produced serious results, including a second-place finish at the South of England Amateur, T4 in the English Amateur and T3 in the Tillman Trophy. He also was an important member of the 2009 GB&I Walker Cup team. In two words, “Mighty Mouse,” (a nickname, by the way, which he says he doesn’t mind).
