75 years after Bobby Jones won the Grand Slam, Alex 'Eagle' Ogle landed in the nest of two non-golfers (both public school educators). On his second birthday, he received a plastic set of golf clubs (from his neighbors), took them everywhere, and wore them out by blasting the plastic golf balls every where he could! As a result, he received a "real" set of lefty golf clubs at two and a half years of age which he took to hit balls at ranges. 


Soon after, the family stumbled across the Golf Channel on their TV and Alex became obsessed with watching - absorbing a variety of shots by mimicking what he saw. After seeing a commercial with Bobby Jones in it, Alex felt he was Bobby Jones and insisted on being called "Bobby" by everyone for a while! When golfers would see Alex's golf swing they would often comment on it being a "natural" or "perfect" swing and advised that he take golf lessons to learn more about the sport - so he began First Tee lessons at Chi Chi Rodriguez GC at two and a half (and practiced at least an hour or longer after everyone else left!). He even met Chi Chi at a charity event and their photo appeared on the "thank you" cards to attendees!

At three and a half, Alex began taking private golf lessons with a PGA Pro.  At four, he began playing in junior golf tournaments because he wanted to compete and "earn trophies like the tour pros!" Since then, Alex 'Eagle' Ogle has played in 454 golf competitions earning 241 wins (including 21 in a row), 72 runner-ups, 57 Top 5s, 18 Top 10s, and 35 Top 25s individually or on a team!  He has won four State Championships in Florida on two different junior tours, "Player of the Year Award" three times on the Premier Junior Tour and a combined 15 times playing on the U.S. Kids Golf Tampa and the U.S. Kids Golf Orlando Tours! Additionally, he has won U.S. Kids Golf Tour Championships 14 times!​ Additionally, Alex has been victorious in the Canadian Junior Golf Association's World Challenge at Innisbrook and has earned two U.S. Kids Golf Regional Championship wins (Jekyll Island Cup and Copperhead Classic).

In the fall of 2016, Alex earned a starting spot on the Berkeley Preparatory Varsity Boys Golf Team (as a 6th grader).  He scored a 77 on 18 holes at the Mustang HS Golf Invitational (with the 6th lowest score that included 18 other golf teams).  In October, he got his FIRST Hole-in-One during his team's Boys HS Regional competition! In October of 2017, while the Berkeley Bucs competed at Districts, 7th grader Alex individually scored low enough to qualify to compete in the Boys HS Regional.  He then individually qualified with the second lowest score in the field at Regionals to play in his first-ever Florida High School State Golf Championship - at the age of 12!  In his second season, Alex received the prestigious MVP Award for having the lowest scoring average on the Varsity Boys Golf Team at Berkeley Preparatory School in Tampa, Florida.  


During his 8th grade season, Alex was victorious individually in the First Tee of Tampa Bay High School Golf Invitational at The Eagles by shooting a 68 (4 under par) and soon after, earned his second consecutive MVP Award as a member of Berkeley's Boys Varsity Golf Team! During his 9th grade season, 14 year old Alex was selected as Berkeley's Boys Varsity Golf Team Captain, earned his third MVP Award in a row, and experienced 5 consecutive rounds of under-par matches! As a Sophomore, the Berkeley Bucs won Districts and went on to Regionals.


In 2021, Alex earned victories in the Boys 16-18 Division in the Florida Junior Tour event at Belleair CC, the Top 50 Junior Tour event at Bardmoor GC (shooting under par in both competitions), and the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour's Tampa Bay Winter Open. In the fall, he tied his school's lowest 9-hole match score record with a 31 and earned 1st place (individually & with his team) at Districts earning his 4th MVP award. In 2022, Alex lead his team to a 30 stroke victory in Districts and earned his way to State individually at the Regional competition by shooting a one-under-par 71. He had a Top 20 finish overall at the Florida High School State Championship in November. Additionally, Alex had his second hole-in-one during a varsity match at Countyside CC in early September and earned his 5th MVP award after playing 7 years on his varsity team!

On February 1, 2023, Alex signed his letter of commitment on National Signing Day to play college golf at Palm Beach University in West Palm Beach, Florida, under Coach Watson. He is excited to begin his new chapter as a collegiate student-athlete this school year. Fear the Fish!

P.S. Why is Alex called 'Eagle' by his golf friends, coaches, and teammates? When he was seven years old, he had back-to-back eagles in a junior golf tournament. After the second eagle, his competitor's father shouted, "Eagle Ogle!" and the nickname has stuck ever since!
