His career earnings of more than $1,000,000 earnings along with success in individual tournaments and season long point standings are testament to his passion and skill for competition.

While he thrives on the competition, Menendez has also proven himself to be an extremely capable promoter and communicator.  He works tirelessly to remain available for public appearances, both large and small, for outdoor writers, photographers, as well as radio and television hosts.
