Biography

Scott Michael McCarron (born July 10, 1965) is an American professional golfer.
McCarron was born in Sacramento, California and graduated from Vintage High School in Napa, California. He was a member of the golf team at UCLA, graduating in 1988 with a major in History. Unlike most golfers, McCarron did not transition right away from the college to the professional ranks — he gave up golf for four years (1988–1992) to work with his father in the family clothing business. He turned professional in 1992, and joined the PGA Tour in 1994.
McCarron has had PGA Tour victories in 1996, 1997 and 2001.
McCarron has featured in the top 20 of the Official World Golf Ranking.
McCarron was injured in the summer of 2006 and missed the entire 2007 season. He served as an analyst for The Golf Channel for its 2007 Masters coverage. He returned to the PGA Tour in 2008 and finished 108th on the money list to retain his card for 2009.
In 2010, McCarron became embroiled in controversy when he accused fellow PGA Tour player Phil Mickelson of "cheating" for using a Ping-Eye 2 wedge made before April 1, 1990 that is allowed under a legal technicality. McCarron publicly apologized to Mickelson a few days later. Thirty days later, McCarron was vindicated when the PGA Tour and USGA banned the use of the Ping-Eye 2 wedges.
Since 2012, a series of injuries to his left wrist have limited McCarron's PGA Tour career.
