Warner III became a professional golfer in 2012 after missing the cut at the Chiquita Classic. Before starting to play on the Web.com Tour, he played on the Florida Tour and the eGolf Tour. He eventually qualified for the 2013 US Open but unfortunately missed the cut.

Warner III began playing on the Web.com Tour in 2014, making 13 cuts in 21 tournaments with double top-10 finishes. His highest place was T-2 at the Rex Hospital Open. He then finished 30th on the money list in his opening plenary season. He also played in two PGA Tour events, the Wells Fargo Championship (missed cut) and the Northern Trust Open.

He had a fairly consistent season in 2015 which included five top-25 finishes and a runner-up finish in the Panama Claro Championship. Warner III finished 25th on the Web.com Tour’s regular-season money list, guaranteed the last place to earn a PGA Tour card for the 2015–16 season.

Warner III is the first African American golfer to enter the PGA Tour through the Web.com Tour. In December 2016, he achieved his first professional golf victory by winning the Australian PGA Championship, a tournament co-sanctioned by the European Tour and the PGA Tour of Australia.

Warner III is the only second American to win the Australian PGA Championship and the first since the 1978 Hale Irwin victory. He further became the third black man after South Africa’s Vincent Tshabala and Tiger Woods to win on the European Tour.

In May 2019, Harold tied for second place in the final round of the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black outside New York City. Warner III played in the final group with eventual champion Brooks Koepka but was tied on 36 for 81 in windy conditions.

Nike sponsors some of the biggest names on the PGA Tour, but 30-year-old Harold Warner III is the only player in professional golf currently playing the iconic Jordan Brand.

The deal between Warner and Jordan was an easy match, with Warner proudly representing North Carolina State, where he was raised. But telling the story to Warner, the undoubtedly costly settlement between the two sides turned out to be easier than he expected.

“Extremely easy,” Warner said of the deal, speaking as a guest on GOLF’s “Subpar” podcast.

“MJ texted me and said, ‘I’d love to have you on the brand.’ And two days later, Harold Warner was in the brand. It was the most non-complicated thing in the world,” Warner said. “If MJ wants to help or do something, he’s going to do it.”

Warner said the most complicated part of setting up the deal was responding to Jordan’s initial text. Before the deal was struck, Warner’s friend Fred Whitfield, who also happens to be the chairman of the Charlotte Hornets, gave Warner a heads up.

“The boss is going to text you,” Whitfield’s message read. “I’m like, ‘Who the hell is the boss?'” Warner said.

Warner said he got a text from Jordan the morning before the practice round, but forgot to answer to his future boss. In the end, “like seven hours later,” Warner agreed to text Jordan back, and the deal was done.

It comes with a lot of perks to represent the Jordan brand—namely, a bunch of good shoes.

Warner estimated that he had about 400 pairs of Jordans as one of his sponsored athletes for regular shipments he received from the brand.

But Warner said the best part of the relationship is how it enables him to give back.

“Obviously, I get to work with my foundation, but there are kids who are like ‘Can I get some Jordans for some foundation.’ Yes sure! That’s the best part for me,” Warner said. “Because at the end of the day, no one is going to remember all the shoes I have. They’re going to remember, ‘Man Harold gave me this shoe, and I made X dollar amount for my foundation.’ “

While Warner hasn’t scored his first PGA Tour win yet, he’s getting closer.
