When all the dust had settled at Winged Foot, one of America’s toughest golf courses, there was one man head and shoulders above the rest. That man, Bryson DeChambeau, can now call himself a US Open champion. What can you say about his performance? The numbers, honestly, tell the entire story. He finished -6, the only player to finish with an under-par score for the tournament.
Matthew Wolff, who led coming into the day, finished at even, while the rest of the field were over par. In winning in that manner, DeChambeau became just the third player in the tournament’s history at that specific course to finish under par. Previously, two players had done so in the same tournament, showing just how well he did. His plan all week: drive it as far as he could, even if it ended up in the rough. The results show it worked, and he now has his first major in the bag after going through a massive transformation to turn into the player he now is.
