Q & A with the AJGA's Jordan Fryes!
 

Q & A with Jordan Frye and Jordan Frye!

Jordan Frye may not be the most common name in the world, but in the AJGA, there are two: the junior golfer from Colleyville, Texas, and the staff member in human resources. So, in this edition of Q&A, we spoke to each of them to learn how they met and find out who is the better golfer and who can name more golfers in 20 seconds. It also seems possible that if they didn’t meet on the golf course, they might have met at a concert. Read on.

How old are you?
JF (Junior): 17
