History. Twenty-year-old Alabama sophomore Nick Dunlap got up and down for par on the 72nd hole Sunday at the American Express in California to become the first amateur to win a tour event since Phil Mickelson won the Northern Telecom Open in 1991. Dunlap shot 64-65-60-70 for a 29-under-par 259 total. He finished one shot ahead of Christiaan Bezuidenhout, who made a 12 footer for birdie on the last hole to finish solo second place, which gave him $1.512 million. That's actually first-place money, as Dunlap is not allowed to collect because of his status.

"Honestly, I felt the script today was already written," Dunlap said afterward. "I was going to go give it everything I had. Whether that's I shoot 75 or 65 or 70, I just was going to give it everything I had."

PGA West: Stadium Course
Public
PGA West: Stadium Course
La Quinta, CA
Originally private, the Stadium Course (the original 18 at PGA West) was among the rota of courses for the old Bob Hope Desert Classic until some pros, objecting to its difficulty, petitioned to remove it. (It’s now back.) It's Pete Dye at his rambunctious best, with a finish mimicking his later design at TPC Sawgrass: a gambling par-5 16th (called San Andreas Fault), a short par-3 17th to an island green and an intimidating par-4 18th with water all the way to the green. Though hideous in its difficulty and aesthetics by 1980s standards (it was can't miss television when it hosted the 1987 Skins Game), it's matured into a noble piece of architecture that represents the tail end of Dye's extreme middle phase.

Gene Littler, 1954 San Diego Open

Dunlap now has plenty of decisions to make. If he turns pro and accepts PGA Tour membership he will earn spots in the remaining signature events this year, the Masters, the PGA Championship, and will have a card through the 2026 season, among other benefits. He will remain in the U.S. Open whether he turns professional or not.
