Wyndham Clark came to the fore on the PGA Tour in 2023, with two victories, including a first major title.

Clark spent his collegiate career between Oklahoma State University and the University of Oregon. During his amateur years, he finished T9 in the stroke play portion of the US Amateur Championship and then won the Pac-12 Conference Championship in 2016.

He turned professional in 2017, finishing inside the top 25 at the Web.com Tour Qualifying earning his card for the 2018 season. He would then make the jump to the PGA Tour for the 2019 season, and a year later, finished runner-up at the Bermuda Championship in a play-off.

His breakout year came in 2023, when he claimed his first PGA Tour title. He was the victor at the Wells Fargo Championship, and then a month later, Clark secured a maiden major win with victory at the US Open at Los Angeles Country Club. Those performances pushed him into the six automatic qualifiers for the Ryder Cup in Rome, and he made his debut for the American team at Marco Simone.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
