Doc Redman made his pro debut in 2018 after a distinguished amateur and collegiate career at Clemson University in South Carolina.
In his first full season as a pro, Redman has been making a name for himself on Mackenzie Tour-PGA Tour Canada, notching a runner-up finish in four starts so far this season. However, Redman is in position to change the trajectory of his career.
After Monday qualifying for the 2019 Rocket Mortgage Classic, the North Carolina native has found his way near the top of the leaderboard and in position to potentially earn PGA Tour special temporary membership. If he can finish in second place this week in Detroit, he'll earn enough non-member FedEx Cup points to earn unlimited sponsor exemptions for the remainder of the PGA Tour season.
Needless to say, more people are getting to know Doc Redman, and they're wondering: What is Doc Redman's real name?
Doc Redman's real name is...Doc. It's actually Doc. Doc Redman's full name is Doc Hudspeth Redman. There's no special nickname, and it doesn't seem to have anything to do with the medical profession. It doesn't seem Redman's parents were trying to name him to fulfill a destiny as a doctor, nor does it seem like his parents particularly loved Bugs Bunny cartoons.
Honestly, Doc is a pretty killer name, and the fact that it's actually his real first name makes it even better. For what it's worth, Doc's sister is named Karma, so his parents just seem to have a love of unique names.
If Redman continues to make the most of his opportunities and earn spots in PGA Tour events -- or PGA Tour membership altogether -- a lot of fans will find it easy to root for this 21-year-old who should be one of the young names to watch for in the coming years in professional golf.
