Bobby Clampett Blog/Post
Bobby Clampett was a junior phenom growing up in Northern California. He won the California State Amateur twice and was the low Amateur at the 1978 US Open and the 1979 Masters. He was a three-time All-American and two-time Collegiate Golfer of the Year at Brigham Young University, and his titles included the Porter Cup, the Sunnehanna Amateur, the Western Amateur, and medalist honors at the 1978 World Amateur.
In 1980 Bobby started his PGA Tour career fast with three dozen top-10 finishes. He won his first tournament – the Spalding Invitational – at age 19. Over a 15-year career on the PGA Tour he earned more than $1.5 million dollars. He began playing on the Champions Tour in 2010 and had career earnings of more than $2 million dollars over five years.
Bobby clearly dominated amateur and college golf and played well on the PGA Tour and Champions Tour. He became a popular TV Analyst with CBS and Turner Sports, authored a best selling book, and with his wife Marianna, developed the Impact Zone Golf Academy with instruction and golf schools in Florida which are clearly making an “impact” on the golf coaching culture.
