Charles Howell III

Howell played in his first PGA Tour event at 17 and finished
T-2 in a Nationwide Tour event while he was still at Oklahoma State, where he captured the 2000 NCAA championship. In his second season on the PGA Tour, he won the Michelob Championship and finished ninth on the money list. He hasn't been as good since, winning only one other event, the 2007 Nissan Open. Judging by this photo from one of his first pro events in 2001, he also hasn't gained much weight through the years.
