You just kind of knew it all week: Bryson DeChambeau wasn’t going to be held down for very long. He was always in the mix in Detroit at the Rocket Mortgage Classic throughout the first three rounds, and he made that pay off on Sunday as he applied the telling pressure to fellow contenders Matthew Wolff and Tommy Armour.
DeChambeau, playing in the penultimate group of the day, went out and shot a 65 to overpower the course and finish at -23, three strokes ahead of Wolff and five ahead of Kevin Kisner. DeChambeau declared his intentions early, erasing a three-stroke deficit in just three holes and he basically rolled to his sixth PGA Tour win and his first in 20 months. Though he had a mistake or two, particularly hitting it in the rocks at the 13th, he would birdie the final three holes to lock up the tournament before Wolff even had an unlikely eagle opportunity to tie it.
