Dan’s father, Jay, is the former director of men’s tennis for the USTA, and has served as an assistant coach for the U.S. Davis Cup and Olympic tennis teams and was head coach of the 2012 U.S. Olympic tennis team. If Daniel were not a professional golfer, he would be a professional tennis player. Had his first hole-in-one at age 13. During off weeks, he enjoys spending time on his boat. Favorite quote is “Winning means you’re willing to go longer, work harder and give more than anyone else.” Source: PGA Daniel Berger PGA
