Dunlap won the US Amateur in August 2023, becoming only the second golfer in history to win both the US Junior Amateur and the US Amateur Championships.
He competed for the United States team in the 2023 Walker Cup and the 2023 Eisenhower Trophy, winning both and finishing second in individual stroke play at the latter. Dunlap was granted a sponsor exemption to compete in the American Express PGA Tour event in January 2024. In the third round, he recorded a 12-under 60, matching Patrick Cantlay’s record for the lowest round by an amateur on the PGA Tour.
Dunlap won the Alabama State Junior Championship in 2018. He was runner-up in the 14-18 division of the 2020 Notah Begay III Junior Golf National Championship, the 2021 Junior Players Championship, and the 2021 Boy’s Junior PGA Championship.
He won the 2021 Dustin Johnson World Junior Championship, the 2021 American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) Polo Golf Junior Classic, and the 2021 U.S. Junior Amateur, defeating Cohen Trolio, 3 and 2, in the final. This win made Dunlap the first native of Alabama to claim the U.S. Junior Amateur title and granted him an exemption to the 2022 U.S. Open. He was subsequently named the 2021 AJGA Boys Golfer of the Year.
Ranked as the No. 1 junior golfer in the class of 2022 according to Golfweek, Dunlap committed to the University of Alabama to study finance and play for the Alabama Crimson Tide golf team. He is a lifelong Alabama fan and has known Alabama’s golf coach Jay Seawell since the age of 10. Dunlap battled with tendonitis in his left wrist during his freshman season.
He claimed his first individual collegiate win at the Linger Longer Invitational in March 2023. He then won the Northeast Amateur in June and the North and South Amateur in July.
Dunlap won the U.S. Amateur in August 2023. He was five over par through his first seven holes of the stroke play portion but rallied to cut. He defeated Gordon Sargent in the first round of the match play en route to reaching the final, where he beat Neal Shipley, 4 and 3, to win the title. This made Dunlap the second golfer in history to win both the U.S. Junior Amateur and U.S. Amateur championships, after Tiger Woods.
Following his U.S. Amateur victory, Dunlap represented the United States team at the 2023 Walker Cup and the 2023 Eisenhower Trophy. The United States won both titles, and Dunlap was the runner-up in the individual stroke play at the 2023 Eisenhower Trophy.
In January 2024, Dunlap received a sponsor exemption to play in The American Express on the PGA Tour. In the third round, he shot a 12-under 60, tying Patrick Cantlay’s record for the lowest round by an amateur on the PGA Tour. This gave Dunlap a three-shot lead heading into the final round.
Dunlap shot 2-under in the final round to win the tournament by one stroke. He became the first amateur to win a PGA Tour event since Phil Mickelson won the Tucson Open in 1991. At 20 years and 29 days old, Dunlap also became the second-youngest winner on the PGA Tour in the past 90 years, behind Jordan Spieth who won at 19 years and 352 days old, and he is the first amateur player to have won the U.S. Junior Amateur, U.S. Amateur, and a PGA Tour event.
Due to his amateur status, Dunlap was ineligible for the winner’s prize money of $1,512,000, which instead went to runner-up Christiaan Bezuidenhout. The win moved Dunlap from third to first in the World Amateur Golf Ranking, which takes into account the performance of amateurs in both amateur and professional tournaments.
In 2024, he made history by becoming the first amateur to win a PGA Tour event in 33 years when he triumphed at The American Express, showcasing his unparalleled skill on the golf course.
