MEMPHIS, Tenn. (June 14, 2015) — To say Bryson DeChambeau has been on a roll lately would be the understatement of the century.
The Clovis, Calif. native and Southern Methodist University golfer recently won the NCAA individual title in Florida, and then breezed through U.S. Open sectionals on Monday to get a spot at Chambers Bay.
Then, this week, he received a sponsor's exemption into the PGA Tour's FedEx St. Jude Classic at TPC Southwind in Memphis. He made the cut by two shots with first and second rounds of 69 and 71, and followed it up with 68 and 72 over the weekend. DeChambeau beat notable PGA Tour staples such as Nick Watney, Harrison Frazar, and David Toms.
Tired? Probably. But DeChambeau isn't likely to take a rest just yet.
From Memphis, he'll head for Washington to get some practice in for the U.S. Open, which begins Thursday. There, he will be able to get some much needed rest Thursday morning since he has a 1:22 tee time in the first round, paired with Blayne Barber and Billy Hurley III.
At AmateurGolf.com, we're enjoying watching DeChambeau take it to the next level. He once stayed with founder Pete Wlodkowski and family in Carlsbad during the Callaway Junior World at Torrey Pines.
