Bryson DeChambeau is having a great week.
After back-to-back victories in the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup, the current NCGA member and 2011 Junior Tour of Northern California Player of the Year was added to the U.S. Team as a Captain’s selection for the Ryder Cup.
Although this will be DeChambeau’s Ryder Cup debut, he is no stranger to match-play. In 2015, while a member of the SMU golf program, he won the U.S. Amateur and went 2-0-1 for the U.S. Walker Cup team. Prior to his emergence on the national scene, DeChambeau honed his match-play skills as a runner-up in the 2013 California Amateur Championship. He also compiled a 1-2 record as a member of the NCGA amateur team in the 2011 Hanna-Wehrman Cup Matches.
The 24-year-old DeChambeau (he’ll be 25 when Ryder Cup play begins) has now won four times on the PGA Tour. He’s currently No. 7 in the Official World Golf Ranking.
The 42nd Ryder Cup will be contested September 28-30 at Le Golf National in Paris, France.
