Clovis native Bryson DeChambeau on what winning a major in NorCal would mean: " It would be really cool because there's been a lot of people in NCGA that have helped me..., and it would be cool to... bring the trophy down to Monterey and hang out with the guys that helped me."

Our picks @TigerWoods & @Abraham_Ancer finished rd 1 -2 & -1 respectively..solid start! Marathon not a sprint..course going to get harder! Who else is excited for rd 2? @norcalpga @PGAChampionship @TPCHardingPark #PGAChampionship

Had dinner with Steve in Hilton Head when he qualified for the 2019 PGA Professional Championship at Belfair in South Carolina. Great guy! And a player!

This makes perfect sense though... If you can score well at The Bridges, you will lite it up anywhere! Great job pro!

Congrats Steve!! We met back in the day at either level 2 or 3 Pga school! Great guy!

Congratulations Steve!!! Hope you are doing well🏆

Congrats Steve!
