2019-20 Season Highlights


PGA TOUR
Safeway Open - Earned his second PGA TOUR title in his 35th career start at age 24 years, 106 days, winning the Safeway Open by one stroke over Canada’s Adam Hadwin at 17-under 271. Won in his second start of the season for the second consecutive season, also doing so at the 2018 Sanderson Farms Championship. Improved to 2-for-2 in his career with the 54-hole lead/co-lead. Became the 21st player to win twice in his first 33 professional starts on TOUR and the first to win twice before turning 25 since Bryson DeChambeau in 2018. Led the field in Driving Distance (337.1 yards), becoming the first player to do that in a tournament he won since Rory McIlroy at the 2019 RBC Canadian Open. Also led the field in Scrambling (84.2%) and Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green (2.879 per round). Grandfather, Mack, was in hospice care in Sacramento with Stage IV stomach cancer during tournament week.

Personal


  • Was introduced to golf by his grandfather, Mack, a Vietnam veteran, at the age of 2. He grew up playing a par-3 course near his house called the Foothill Golf Center where the monthly pass was $50. His grandfather always reminded him "it's not where you come from, it's where you're going."
  • Has one brother, Brent, and two sisters, Melissa and Madison.
  • Is a First Tee alum.
  • Has a tattoo of his grandparents' favorite Bible verse, Proverbs 3:6.
  • Started his own foundation, The Cameron Champ Foundation, which is focused on accessible STEM education and golf development programming that fosters an environment for academic achievement and healthy living for children/youth from under-served communities.
  • Calls working on cars and trucks "his escape."
