Bobby Wolfe is a senior from Eldridge, Iowa. He’s been playing in golf tournaments since he was nine years old. He grew up in a competitive household with two brothers who also play golf.

While playing golf for St. Ambrose, he has been named to the NAIA PING All-North Region Team in 2014, All-Midwest Collegiate Conference honorable mention 2014, and Team Captain the past two seasons. He has three collegiate wins and has been named to several all-tournament teams. He also finished Runner-up in the NAIA Long Drive Competition in 2016 with a drive of 345 yards.

He says that the biggest help in his collegiate golf career is staying focused and patient. A golf round can go many different directions so staying focus is a crucial part of shooting a good score. He’s been one of Ambrose’s top golfers for four straight years while juggling between the most difficult major any undergraduate program can offer: Nursing.

He puts a ton of effort into his life, both on and off the golf course. He has clinicals at the hospital two times a week for eight-and-a-half hours and in class work for 12 hours a week, not including studying for the numerous exams. He is proud to be part of the Nursing Program here at St. Ambrose while still excelling on the golf course with the Fighting Bees.

When he’s not studying or golfing he likes to hunt. Hunting relaxes him because he gets to be out in nature and enjoy the scenery. Getting away from the stressful lifestyle of being a nursing student and a collegiate athlete through hunting helps him re-energize and allows him to be mentally prepared for the upcoming week.

After college, he will work as a nurse in the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) for a couple of years and then go back to school to become a CRNA (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist). He wants that career because he would enjoy the autonomy and he has an interest in surgery.
