Bryson DeChambeau caught the attention of golfers and enthusiasts alike when he won both the NCAA and U.S. Amateur titles within a year, a feat previously accomplished by a handful of players including Jack Nicklaus, Phil Mickelson, and Tiger Woods. With his name mentioned among such legendary golfers, DeChambeau has the world under his feet as he begins to make his mark on the sport even more.
Bryson Dechambeau Biography (Age)
DeChambeau was born Bryson James Aldrich DeChambeau on September 16, 1993, in Modesto, California, where he lived until the age of seven when his family moved to Fresno, California. During this time, he began playing golf and attended Clovis East High School where he was part of the school’s golf team. At the age of 16, in his sophomore year, DeChambeau got his first taste of victory when he won the California State Junior Championship.
After graduating high school in 2012, Bryson DeChambeau accepted a sports scholarship to Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. While majoring in physics, he joined the school’s golf team and became the first student in the school to win the NCAA Individual Championship in June 2015. A few months later, he added the U.S. Amateur title to his collection and joined an elite list of players who both won titles in the same year.
Following this success, DeChambeau decided to join the PGA Tour as an amateur and made his debut at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. That year he also played in the U.S. Open, but missed the cut by four shots, and in the Australian Masters, where he was seeded second. In 2016, the golfer found out that he could not defend his NCAA title because his school had been banned from competition by the college sports federation. This prompted him to give up his last college season and become a professional in mid-April 2016.
After signing a long-term contract with the Cobra-Puma Golf brand, Bryson DeChambeau made his golf debut as a professional at RBC Heritage, where he finished fourth and took home over $250,000. He then played at the U.S. Open, where he drew to 15th place and climbed to 148 in the world rankings, where he again took home more than $150,000. DeChambeau then claimed his first tournament victory at the DAP Championship, earning him a PGA Tour Card.
In his first year on the PGA Tour, the young golfer beat the competition from Patrick Rodgers to win the John Deere Classic in July 2017. His next victory came about a year later at the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio, in June 2018, after he beat Kyle Stanley and An Byeong-hun in a sudden-death play-off. Two months later, he won two more tournaments within a week; first the Northern Trust in late August 2018 and then the Dell Technologies Championship in early September 2018.
Does He Have A Wife Or Girlfriend?
Bryson DeChambeau is in a loving relationship with the Instagram model Sophia Phalen Bertolami. There are conflicting reports as to exactly when the two began to meet, but it was in June 2018 that Bertolami officially confirmed to the public that she was with DeChambeau by posting a picture of her and her admirer on Instagram.
Bertolami, who holds a degree in Kinesiology and Nutrition from Chapman University in Orange, California, is currently scheduled to complete a nursing degree at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. In addition to her studies, Bertolami also owns a bikini line for busty women, which she developed in collaboration with LA ISLA.
The budding nurse, who enjoys showing off her swimwear on her Instagram page, has been associated with several other high-profile athletes in the past. She is said to have had relationships with baseball players Danny Muno and Michael Anthony Napoli.
Height And Weight
Height allegedly plays no significant role in improving a golfer’s skills, because even if a larger player has a larger swing arc, he may suffer from having control and timing. But with a height of 1.85m (5’8″), Bryson DeChambeau is above average height by today’s standards, which should give him the balance he needs to be successful. He also retains a weight of 185 pounds or 84 kg.
