He is the son of David and Kathy Peck of Wellington.People in Wellington can only appreciate the rise of Peck, who only started playing golf in high school his senior year and did not come from a golfing family. He never picked up a club until his junior year in high school.He played tennis and baseball in the summers until that time. During his junior year, he and Evan Keller were state runner ups in 4A doubles tennis. He started playing both tennis and golf his senior year, but weather caused back up of events like this and he could not put the time in to do both sports the way he wanted to, his father said.“He decided he liked golf better and went that route from that time on,” David Peck said.Brian Peck was on fire at the KCAC Championship series – finishing at or below par in five of the six rounds that make up the KCAC Championship series. He opened the series by firing rounds of 72 (+1), 71 (even), and 71 (even) at the KCAC regular season tournament, which took place March 20-21 at Terradyne Country Club in Andover.A month later, he opened the KCAC Men’s Golf Championship tournament by tying for the lowest round in the NAIA this season with a 64 (-8) at Buffalo Dunes in Garden City, then followed that with a 70 (-2) and an even-par 72 to claim top individual honors by 14 strokes over his closest competitor. As the top finisher on a non-qualifying team, Peck will represent Southwestern at next month’s NAIA championship.Peck’s round of 64 has only been achieved by four other NAIA golfers this season. Colton Murphy (Rocky Mountain), Lawren Rowe (Victoria), Michael Padilla (Marymount) and Mike Griffin (Victoria) have also recorded rounds of 64.Peck will be Southwestern’s first national championship participant since 2015, when Seth Bryan represented the Moundbuilders as an individual in the event, which took place at the LPGA National Golf Club in Daytona Beach, Fla.The 2017 NAIA Men’s Golf National Championship is scheduled to begin May 16 at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Ill. The public course, which was established in 2000, is operated by the PGA Tour as a member of their Tournament Players Club golf course network.It is the site of the annual John Deere Classic, which is part of the PGA’s regular season schedule, and is typically held in July, the week preceding the British Open.Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
