Bryson DeChambeau 2016 schedule: When will he play next?


SHARE THIS STORY

Bryson DeChambeau is now a professional golfer and is looking to make his way onto the PGA Tour through the 2015-16 schedule. DeChambeau's schedule is limited by the fact that a non-member is afforded seven sponsor's exemptions in a season, one of which he used to make his pro debut at the RBC Heritage.

At Harbour Town, DeChambeau finished tied for fourth, earning $259,600. That top-10 finish also automatically got DeChambeau into the Valero Texas Open, played at TPC San Antonio.



Moving forward, DeChambeau will take advantage of those top-10 opportunities. He also plans to play the following schedule:

  • Wells Fargo Championship - May 5-8
  • AT&T Byron Nelson - May 19-22
  • Dean & DeLuca Invitational - May 26-29
  • the Memorial Tournament - June 2-5
  • Quicken Loans National - June 23-26

Since DeChambeau turned pro, he gave up his exemptions into the U.S. Open and Open Championship as the 2015 U.S. Amateur champion. So he would have to go through qualifying to get into those events.

How Bryson DeChambeau can earn his PGA Tour card

The goal for DeChambeau is to earn PGA Tour Special Temporary Membership as quickly as possible, which affords a non-member the opportunity to take an unlimited number of sponsor's exemptions for the remainder of the season. A non-member can do that when they earn the equivalent FedEx Cup points of the player who finished 150th on either list in the prior season. DeChambeau earned 122.5 non-member FedEx Cup points at Harbour Town, and that leaves him 238.5 points away from earning that distinction.

Then the next goal would be to finish the year inside the top 125 in either non-member FedEx Cup points or money. The player who finished 125th last season in FedEx Cup points earned 458 points. On the money list, No. 125 earned $747,899, leaving DeChambeau $488,299 off last year's watermark.
