Clovis East alumnus Bryson DeChambeau, now a junior at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, has received a prestigious golfing title: winner of the 2015 NCAA Championship Tournament. 

DeChambeau took Individualist Medalist Honors at the NCAA Division I Men’s Golf National Championships after finishing the tournament 8-under par. He is now SMU’s first individual national champion and Arnold Palmer Individual Champion. 

He set a four-day overall score of 280, a program record.

DeChambeau has collected several other honors over the course of his career, including PING First Team All-American, PING All-Central Region Team and GolfWeek Magazine’s First Team All-American. He recently tied for third at the U.S. Open Sectional Qualifying Event in Columbus, Ohio, which qualified him to compete in the prestigious tournament. He has also earned exemptions to compete in a couple more PGA events, including the FedEx St. Jude Classic in Memphis.
