    The son of a Baptist pastor, Bryant played on the golf team at New Mexico State University where he was a two-time All-American. Bryant had a slow start to his PGA Tour career; he didn’t win on The Tour until the Valero Texas Open in 2004. This was his 188th Tour start. The following season was his most successful since the start of his career as he won both the Memorial Tournament and the Tour Championship to finish ninth on the money list. At this point in his career he also entered the Top 50 of the world rankings.

    Bryant has been followed by injury during his career, including a wrist injury which he suffered in 2009, and which kept him out of the game for almost three years. In 2013 Bryant was victorious on the Champions Tour for the first time at the Dick's Sporting Goods Open. He isn’t the only member of his family to take to the golf course; his older brother Brad has also experienced wins on the PGA Tour and on the Champions Tour.

    Away from the golf course Bryant is a fan of sport in general, watching football and basketball. He also enjoys listening to music, most especially seventies rock music, and more modern Christian music. One of Bryant’s passions in life is his Harley Davidson motorbike which he wants to one day ride on a return trip from Orlando to Alaska.

    As of the end of 2014 Bryant had achieved three wins on the PGA Tour, amassing total prize money of $9,713,851.
