Camille Boyd and Davis Bryant are the 2022 Southwestern Amateur champions

After 105 years as a men’s tournament, the Southwestern Amateur added a women’s championship in 2021. On Saturday, Camille Boyd became the 2nd Southwestern Women’s Amateur champion.

The soon-to-be junior at the University of Washington, who hails from Yorba Linda, Calif., carded a 69 on Saturday — her fourth consecutive score in the 60s — to seal a four-shot victory at 12 under par. She was the only player to break par in all four rounds.

“It’s a pretty prestigious event, and it feels nice to put my name on the trophy as just the second woman,” Boyd said.

In the Men’s Division, Davis Bryant came from three shots back with a final-round 68 to match Boyd’s winning total of 12 under and capture the biggest win of his amateur career. The soon-to-be fifth-year senior at Colorado State University edged out Gabe Salvanera of Arizona State by two shots.

“It was incredible. I’m so happy to have come out on top and be the champion today,” Bryant said.

107th Southwestern Amateur
June 15-18, 2022

The 2022 Southwestern Amateur Men’s and Women’s Division Championships was played June 15-18 at the Desert Mountain Club in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The tournament returned to the Geronimo course in 2022, which hosted the 2015 championship. It is one of the most beautiful and challenging courses at Desert Mountain.

This was the 107th year for the Men’s Division and the 2nd for the Women’s Division. The SWGA Selection Committee selected 72 Men and 72 Women to compete based upon playing resume and rankings. Invitations were sent in late December to the top 200 WAGR ranked men, and the top 300 WAGR ranked women.

Entries to request an invitation opened on January 1. 2022 and closed May 15, 2022. If the field is not filled by invited and exempt players by the closing date, our Selection Committee decides which entries will receive an invitation.

The Power Rankings from WAGR placed our 2021 Women’s division at 7th out of the 180 U.S. women’s tournaments that are open to All Ages. The Men’s division was 56 out of the 380 men’s tournaments open to All Ages.

Once again it was a 72-hole stroke play competition, with 36 holes in alternating morning and afternoon waves, followed by a cut. For the final two days there was one morning wave.
