APGA Tour Player and Stout Ambassador
Stout is proud to sponsor Marcus Byrd, who joined the Stout family in 2023.
A native of Washington, D.C., former standout at Middle Tennessee State, and 2019 Conference USA Golfer of the Year, Marcus Byrd has played on the APGA Tour full time since turning pro in 2020. Shortly after Marcus began his professional career, his father – who was also his best friend and mentor – passed away. His father introduced him to the game of golf at age three, and with resilience and an infectious positive attitude, Marcus continues to strive for success and make his father proud on his professional journey, living out their shared dream.
Marcus is a force on the rise. In 2022, he won the APGA Tour Valley Forge, followed by a runner-up finish at the APGA Charlie Sifford Centennial. After achieving fifth in the 2022 Lexus Cup Standings, Byrd went on to win the Fall Series Standings. Over the year, Byrd played in 14 APGA Tour events, and he had 11 top-10 finishes, including eight top-3’s and five runners-up.
In 2023, Marcus set an APGA tour record with four victories and also earned exemptions into four PGA TOUR events. As a result of his outstanding play during the season, Marcus finished first in the Lexus Cup standings. By winning the Lexus Cup, Marcus took home the 2023 APGA Mastercard Player Achievement Award, which includes status on 2024 PGA TOUR Americas.
