DeChambeau imposes his peculiar style to conquer the US Open

Winged Foot was already asleep in the hours before the start of the final day and a powerful spotlight illuminated the practice field. There Bryson DeChambeau rushed swings on the eve of the final battle where he had to recover two blows from the even younger and puncher Matthew Wolff . Thus the first 'major' title of his sports career was created.

Bryson is probably not the player most loved by the public and teammates. His eternal pre-hit routines drive him crazy and his eccentricities trying to reinvent golf cause more than one blush. The penultimate was to appear after the confinement with almost 20 kilos more. “My goal is to get as strong as possible was to give him strength and swing speed,” he revealed then, as he confessed his diet with four eggs at every breakfast and protein shakes everywhere.

The American started popping the ball off the tee , a kind of modern Happy Gilmore . In appearance, a spectacle incompatible with the harshness of the most maddening tournament in the world, the US Open, even less so at Winged Foot, the most complicated field in the rotation with one of the thickest 'roughs'.

23 streets reached

But DeChambeau, after 67 epic blows on the last day, has been in charge of demolishing the myth. He is the winner of the US Open and also the champion with the fewest lanes reached in history, only 23 over the four days of the tournament. Bryson was also the only one capable of winning the field on the last day and throughout the tournament, his -6 is the lowest result in the history of the US Open at Winged Foot, a record that gave him six strokes of advantage over Wolff, second classified final.

Finally Jon Rahm and Rafa Cabrera-Bello finished tied in position 23, with a result of +10. More positive was Rahm's day, despite his double bogey in the 18th, while the +8 on the day of the Canarian Cabrera-Bello separated him from any option to fight for a position among the top 10.
