Area golf fans should remember Bryson DeChambeau, who won the John Deere Classic Sunday by one stroke.
In 2015, playing for SMU, the 23-year-old Californian, won the NCAA Individual Championship at The Concession Golf Club in East Manatee County. He finished 8-under-par.
Just in case someone, somewhere, still believes golf is an “old-man sport,” here are the ages of the last six PGA Tour winners: 23, 23, 29, 23, 27, 24. The latest to join that list is 23-year-old DeChambeau, yet another talented youngster who is proving himself on the game’s biggest stage. With his win at the John Deere, he’ll also claim a spot in this week’s Open Championship — a worthy addition. DeChambeau has been featured in national TV commercials even before winning; as others can attest, it’s not easy to live up to that pressure. He’s done it now, which should make the victory even sweeter.
