Bio

Won a Nissan Altima Coupe with a hole-in-one at the 2007 Nissan Open on the par-3 14th hole during the third round. Immediately after the ace with a 7-iron from 176 yards, dove onto the car on display next to the tee box and eventually found his way onto a Nissan television commercial with the antic. Beem had watched Peter Jacobsen dive into a car after his ace in the Nissan Open 13 years ago. "I wish I could take full credit for making a fool of myself, but I stole that (from Peter Jacobsen). Jake had a convertible and hopped into it. I will never forget that. Today, I just saw the car and thought, might as well. I'll tell you the top of that hood was pretty warm, and the back is a little scratched up from my shoes."

Quit the game temporarily in 1995 and sold cellular phones and car stereo systems in Seattle. Watched fellow El Paso, Texas, resident J.P. Hayes win 1998 Buick Classic and gained renewed interest.

Worked in pro shop at El Paso CC prior to joining TOUR.

Father, Larry, retired as golf coach at New Mexico State in 2004.

Worked as an analyst at the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits for pga.com's 3D and 2D broadcasts in 2010.
