DeChambeau Claims Second Straight Tournament, Remains Atop FedEx Cup
With victories at The Northern Trust and, most recently, the Dell Technologies Championship, Bryson DeChambeau became the first player to win back-to-back tournaments on the PGA Tour this year. He is also only the second player to win the first two tournaments of the FedEx Cup, the first being Vijay Singh in 2008.
Bryson’s scientific approach to the game allowed him to be accurate and consistent with his shots all weekend at The Northern Trust. DeChambeau shot 68, 66, 63 and 69 throughout the tournament, finishing four shots ahead of Tony Finau. Throughout the event, not a single player got within two strokes of DeChambeau.
DeChambeau’s latest victory at the Dell Technologies Championship propelled him to no.7 in the WGR. He will also move to the top of the FedEx Cup rankings. This is especially noteworthy for a player who wasn’t even on the PGA Tour two years ago.
DeChambeau shot an impressive 67 in his final-round to claim a two shot victory over Englishman Justin Rose.
"Consistency has been a big thing for me," he told Joel Beall of Golf Digest. "I've been trying to get that week in and week out, and I was able to kind of figure something out last week on the putting green and that's kind of progressed me to move forward in the right way."
DeChambeau began the weekend seven shots behind the leaders, but shot an eight-under 63 on Sunday to secure a pairing with Abraham Ancer. Bryson’s precise ball-striking and short game ensured he would be in contention for the victory.
After struggling in his first year on tour, DeChambeau has been slowly improving his game and gaining the momentum he needs to establish himself as a world-class golfer.
Cobra Puma Golf signed DeChambeau to a multi-year equipment and apparel deal in 2016, and it’s safe to say that deal worked out for both parties. DeChambeau has used Cobra Puma Clubs in all of his PGA Tour Victories and it has helped elevate his game even more.
With 3 PGA Tour victories in 2018, DeChambeau has cemented his spot on the U.S team for this year’s Ryder Cup. The last two events, DeChambeau travelled with family and friends to see the Ryder Cup as a fan and now he will finally have a chance to play in the tournament.
“I’ve always been a guy that’s been weird and unique relative to everybody else,” DeChambeau told PGATour.com. “I’ve always gone about my business trying to do the absolute best I can. Let today’s garbage be better than yesterday’s.”
