In Global Golf Post's December 7 issue, Bryson DeChambeau and Emma Talley were named male and female Amateur-of-the-Year. Both players triumphed this year at The Concession Golf Club, winning the NCAA Individual Championship while representing their schools.

DeChambeau was a junior for Southern Methodist University while Talley, also a junior, played for the University of Alabama. DeChambeau left SMU before his senior year, while Talley is currently playing her final year for the Crimson Tide.

“Emma Talley and Bryson DeChambeau’s on-course accomplishments are towering,” wrote Steve Eubanks in The Post’s Dec. 7 edition. “Talley is one of only five players in history to win the U.S. Women’s Amateur and the NCAA individual championship, while DeChambeau joined Jack Nicklaus, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods and Ryan Moore in winning both the national amateur and the NCAA in the same year. But the examples Talley and DeChambeau have set away from competition, their humility and genuineness, are even more extraordinary.”
