Who is Wyndham Clark's girlfriend? Meet Julia Kemmling

New US Open champion Wyndham Clark is in a relationship with former college golfer and golf coach Julia Kemmling.

Clark, 29, is a very private person when it comes to his personal life so his latest relationship status remains somewhat unknown. 

Julia and Wyndham's last photo shared on Instagram together was back in 2017.

Clark's partner Julia is said to hold the record at Quinnipiac University for best performance in a round on the NCAA with a 3-over par 75. 

Julia was not so long ago announced as the team's assistant coach, working alongside Quinnipiac women's head coach John O'Connor.

According to the gobobcats website, here's a look at Kemmling's college golf record:

  • The Connecticut native helped propel the Bobcats to back-to-back MAAC Championships in 2016 and 2017.
  • Kemmling finished fourth and higher in stroke average all three years (2015-17) for Quinnipiac.
  • She received All-MAAC Honors in 2016 and 2017.
  • Shot a season-best 75 (+3) at the NCAA Athens Regional second round on May 15, 2017, which stands as the best round in Quinnipiac NCAA Tournament competition.
  • Her 42 birdies in 2015-16 are the second-most for a freshman in program history and the second-most in a single season by any Quinnipiac athlete.
  • In 2015-16, Her 229 at the MAAC Championship was also the second-best 54-hole score in program history and her 149 over the first two rounds of the 2016 MAAC Championship broke the program's postseason 36-hole record.

When Julia took up her position as assistant golf coach at Quinnipiac, O'Connor said: 

"After considering numerous highly qualified candidates, I am very pleased that Julia will be re-joining our golf family now as a coach. Julia knows what it is to be an elite student-athlete and how to manage her time and will help our young team perform at their highest level. Julia had four great years competing for Quinnipiac and being captain for three of those four years. She was a tremendous competitor and an integral part of our back-to-back conference championship winning team earning All-MAAC honors every year that she competed. I couldn't be happier than to continue working with such a special young woman."

Julia said:

"It is an honor and privilege to return to Quinnipiac as assistant coach of the women's golf team. I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the program that holds such a special place in my heart. I look forward to learning from Coach O'Connor and assisting in the continued development and success of the team."

Clark won his first major title at the 2023 US Open at Los Angeles Country Club. 

He was tied for the lead after 54 holes alongside Rickie Fowler on 10-under par, and one stroke clear of Rory McIlroy

Clark has now won twice in his last four starts on the PGA Tour. 

The American clinched his first PGA Tour title earlier this season with a four-stroke victory at the 2023 Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow.

Clark found himself outside the top 300 in the world 12 months ago.

But his recent results on the PGA Tour have seen him surge into the world's top 20 for the first time in his career. 

Clark's mother Lise died of breast cancer aged 55 when he was 19 years old. 

"I wish you could be here," Clark said about his late mother during his impressive play at the US Open. 

Clark admits he has channeled his Mum's instruction to start playing his best golf: 

"When she was sick and I was in college, she told me, ‘Hey, play big,’
"‘Play for something bigger than yourself. You have a platform to either witness or help or be a role model for so many people.’
"I’ve taken that to heart. When I’m out there playing, I want to do that for her. I want to show everyone the person I am and how much joy I have out there playing and hope I can inspire people to want to be like me and be better than me."
