DeChambeau Overpowers Winged Foot, Wins 120th U.S Open PDF Print E-mail

 

Bryson Dechambeau celebrates his victory after winning at Winged Foot



Mamaroneck, N.Y - Clovis, California's own Bryson DeChambeau joined

Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods as the only players in golf history to win

the U.S Amateur, NCAA individual title and a U.S Open. DeChambeau

did it his way (after bulking up in the off-season and during the Covid

-19 quarantine), deciding to forego the typical conservative U.S Open

strategy, he employed his "bomb and gouge" style on just about every

hole of A.W Tillinghast's challenging Westchester classic.

 

DeChambeau's final round 67 bested 54 hole leader Matthew Wolff

by eight shots on Sunday, cruising in for a six-stroke triumph. "It's

an honor," said DeChambeau. "I don't know what else to say. It's

been a lot of hard work. Mr.Nicklaus has been always awesome to

me. Tiger has always been great to me. I can't say thank you enough

to them for helping push me along to be a better person and a better

golfer, as well. To be in the likes of that company is special. I'll forever

appreciate that."

 

The very challenging West course at Winged Foot prevailed on 60 of

the 61 players who competed over the weekend - producing a 75.03

stroke average, but Dechambeau's combination of scientific analysis

and aggressive execution was too much for the even the toughest of

U.S Open layouts. DeChambeau's game plan was game changing, and

may have the governing bodies taking notice on the distance issue as

it pertains to professional side of things.

 

Matthew Wolff (75) and Louie Oosthuizen (73) finished 2nd and 3rd

respectively.

 

The victory was DeChambeau's his first major championship win, and

the Masters is now on the clock . . .

Cink Breaks 11 Year Drought, Wins Safeway Open PDF Print E-mail
Stewart Cink celebrates after winning the Safeway Open




NAPA, California - Stewart Cink, long known as one of the most

liked and respected players by his peers on the PGA Tour, has

ended an 11 year drought in the season opener at Johnny Miller's

Silverado Resort. It was the first victory for the 47 year old since

the 2009 Open Championship at Turnberry (when he defeated a

59 year-old Tom Watson). Back to back 65's on the weekend was

good enough for a two stroke victory over the recently red-hot

Harry Higgs. Cink became the oldest PGA Tour winner since Phil

Mickelson claimed the title at Pebble Beach as a 48 year-old in

February of last year.


The win was a family affair with son Reagan on the bag and wife

Lisa offering encouragment. "She had some great words. She said,

"You know what? You're loved no matter what you do. No one

expects anything out of you. I know you can do it and you know

you can do it  - you're with your son, so just go out there and

have a great time."


Cink rode a hot flatstick on Sunday, one-putting 10 times to finish

at 21 under par (267 total). Higgs fired a final round 68 to finish at

-19, but it was Doc Redman who shot the round of the day with six

straight birdies coming in for 62. Redman finished tied for third with

Brian Stuard (70), Chez Reavie (66) and Kevin Streelman (67) at

18 under par.



 

 

 

 

 
DJ Wins the Tour Championship, Fedex Cup PDF Print E-mail

 

Dustin Johnson celebrates after capturing the Fedex Cup Championship



Atlanta, Ga - Dustin Johnson capped off a PGA Tour season like no

other in history - due to the Covid-19 pandemic. DJ had an impressive

run after shooting a pair of 80's at the Memorial and then a WD the

following week (citing back issues). He followed those disappointments

by winning the Travelers, 2nd at the PGA at Harding Park, an epic win

at TPC Boston to start the Fedex Cup Playoffs (with a 30 under par total),

lost to Rahm in a playoff at Olympia Fields (on a U.S Open set up), and

went on to take care of business at East Lake to capture his first Fedex

Cup Crown and the $15 million first prize.

 

 

When the PGA Tour halted play after round 1 of the Players in March,

it was unknown if the season would resume at all. But Commissioner

Jay Monahan rallied sponsors, players and tournament organizers to

restart at Colonial in June, and things have gone relatively smooth

since.

 

DJ's five stroke lead to start the final round had dwindled to two a

couple of times while Xander Schauffele and Justin Thomas tried to

reel him in. Johnson's 2 under par 68 was enough to win by 3 over

both Schauffele and Thomas, who both shot 66. The world no.1 began

the Tour Championship at 10 under par (two strokes ahead of Jon

Rahm and three in front of Justin Thomas) under the tour's staggered

scoring format (based on Fedex Cup points), finishing at 21 under

par after making birdie on the 72nd hole.


"I'm pleased to be the Fedex Cup Champion," said Johnson. "It's a

very tough trophy to win and I've been close a few times, so it was

nice to get it done today."

Rahm Rallies, Beats DJ in Dramatic Playoff at BMW PDF Print E-mail

 

Jon Rahm celebrates after his dramatic win at Olympia Fields


 


Chicago - Jon Rahm incurred a penalty on Saturday for forgetting to

mark his ball on the 5th green, it was his only bogey over the weekend

at Olympia Fields, and thanks to a 65 foot bomb on the first hole of

the sudden death playoff with Dustin Johnson - that one stroke penalty

didn't come back to haunt him.


The putt came moments after Johnson drained a 45 footer of his own

on the 72nd hole to shoot 67 and tie Rahm at 4 under par to force the playoff.

It was a dramatic ending to an event that resembled a U.S Open more

than the BMW Championship - a Fedex Cup Playoff event.

 

Rahm's final round 64 was the latest stellar Sunday to eclipse the World

no.1. (Johnson also finished solo second a few weeks back at the PGA

Championship at Harding Park after Collin Morikowa also fired a blistering

final round 64), but in typical DJ fashion he brushed off another tough defeat,

"I played an unbelievable putt, got in the playoff and then Jon made an even

more ridiculous putt on top of me."

 

Johnson's final round 67 did ensure that he'd remain atop the OWGR and the

Fedex Cup standings heading into East Lake for the Tour Championship.


Only five players finished under par at the BMW Championship - Joaquin

Niemann and Hideki Matsuyama tied for third at -2, while Tony Finau

closed with a 65 to finish three shots back at 1 under par.
