Raised in southern California, Gary attended Ramona High School in Riverside, then enrolled at the University of California, Riverside, and playing golf was a two-time Division II All-American for the UC Riverside Highlanders. In 1970, he won the NCAA Division II individual championship, and then started his professional career a year later.
