Billy Andrade

Billy Andrade joined Golf Channel in 2010 as an on-course reporter after 22 competitive years on the PGA Tour which included four victories: the 1991 Kemper Open and Buick Classic, the 1998 Canadian Open, and the 2000 Invensys Classic. Andrade also helped lead the Wake Forest Golf Team to the 1986 NCAA Championship.  Subsequently, he made the 1987 Walker Cup Team and turned professional later that year, finishing T-8 at Q-School and receiving his PGA Tour card.

In 1991, Andrade and Brad Faxon joined forces to create the Billy Andrade/Brad Faxon Charities for Children.  They have raised more than $7 million for children in Rhode Island and southern Massachusetts. The two also host the annual CVS Caremark Charity Classic at Rhode Island Country Club.
