Description:
Justin Charles Garrett Leonard (born June 15, 1972) is an American professional golfer.

Leonard was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. He attended Lake Highlands High School and graduated in 1990. He attended the University of Texas at Austin and was the individual NCAA champion in 1994.

He also came close to winning two more major championships; he lost playoffs at the 1999 British Open and the 2004 PGA Championship, in both instances falling into the playoff with a bogey on the 72nd hole.

Leonard qualified for the United States Ryder Cup team in 1997, 1999, and 2008. In the 1999 event, Leonard made a 45-foot putt for birdie on the 17th hole to complete a remarkable comeback by the U.S. team on the final day. The victory was somewhat marred by the celebration following Leonard's putt, when other U.S. players, their wives, and a few fans ran onto the green even though Leonard's opponent, José María Olazábal, still had an opportunity to match Leonard on the hole.
