2015 Alum Wins First PGA Championship

Congratulations to DBHS alum SAHITH THEEGALA (CLASS OF 2015)!!

The FedEx Cup Fall found its first champion as Sahith Theegala claimed the 2023 Fortinet Championship at 21 under for a two-stroke victory over S.H. Kim. Nabbing his first career victory on the PGA Tour, Theegala leaned on pristine wedge play and the overwhelming support from his camp to make his long-awaited entry into the winner's circle Sunday, September 17, 2023.

One of six players in the field — along with Eric Cole, Cam Davis, Brendon Todd, Andrew Putnam and two-time defending champion Max Homa — to lock up their signature event status in 2024 with a strong season, Theegala still came into the week with a bit of a chip on his shoulder as a bogey on they 72nd hole of last week's BMW Championship saw the California native drop outside the top 30 who qualified for the Tour Championship. 

His victory in Napa has righted those wrongs as Theegala is now qualified for all four major championships in 2024 marking the second straight year he will tee it up in the four biggest events.

"It doesn't feel real," Theegala said. "It's probably not going to set in for awhile, but that was a lot of good golf and some of the most fun I have ever had in my life. I had so many family and friends cheering me on, and the support I have is mind blowing. I go to bed at night these past few days and I can't believe how many people are cheering for me and rooting for me. This feeling is incredible, and I couldn't have done it without my whole team and everyone out here. This is such a team effort and for me to put it together like this, it means the world."
