Bryson James Aldrich DeChambeau is a professional golfer from the United States. He won the PGA Tour seven times including an important championship, the US Open 2020.
With short fair trails, lightning-fast greens or ankle-deep roughness, Bryson DeChambeau has shown little interest, which has historically been the case all over the US Open.
- The Winged Foot Golf Course should be a lesson in putting big hitters on a pitch for everyone too.
- Matthew Wolff was his matchmaker on Sunday, entering the lead that day.
- His success started last October when he closed his 2019 season in Las Vegas.
- DeChambeau is only the first to finish a tournament under par in 6 US Open at Winged Foot.
With his extra 40 pounds of muscle and mass, he tried to submit it to his driver, even though he buried his shots in the deep grass. That’s how he plays. And for sceptics who say this would not work in Winged Foot’s US Open, look at that silver-shined, glossy trophy, and on his six-shot victory on Sunday, the record score he posted.
The Winged Foot Golf Course should be a lesson in putting big hitters on a pitch for everyone too. This is to frustrate the players and challenge them in ways that they have not been challenging all year. It got to everyone except the longest hitter and beef player in the game.
The forerunner of a new approach
This success was enough to verify the attitude he gave to those who said it could not be sustained. “One hundred percent, no doubt,” Bryson DeChambeau said.

“For me, it’s more about the journey of being able to repeat every shot than everyone else. This week I was able to do it. That’s why I won by six.”
DeChambeau rolled on a 7-foot par putt and threw those powerful weapons into the air, when he closed the 3-under 67 in one course, not allowing another round to par. Two shots from behind Matthew Wolff in early September, caught him in four holes, crossed at five and dragged behind nine. From the fair path. From approx. This is not a bar.
“I don’t know what to say because it’s the complete opposite of what the US Open champion thinks,” Rory McIlroy said. “Look, he found a way to do that. I don’t know if this is good or bad for the game, but I have never seen him play this golf course or play this tournament. ”
You can call DeChambeau whatever you want. You may not like his attitude, but he’s changing the game, and it’s never been clearer than he did last weekend. Easy to forget, he was one of the best competitors on the tour. It has nothing to do with his size, but he has to do everything with preparation.
Any name you want to call Bryson from here on out is fine, and he’ll laugh at it because it has a US Open Champion in it. It was the first major success of Bryson’s young career.

Great effort by Matthew Wolff
Matthew Wolff was his matchmaker on Sunday, entering the lead that day, but finishing behind 6 strokes. Since Francis Ouimet in 1913, he was trying to be the first player to win the US Open at debut.
He made a 10-foot eagle puddle in the ninth in the Bar-5 to be within a shot. It was his only hole. Wolff was equal to 280, a mark which would have won in the Winged Foot four of the last five US Opens.
It doesn’t stand a chance against Bryson DeChambeau this week. It was a breathtaking performance, four rounds equal or better, the first player to manage it at Winged Foot.

Bryson DeChambeau Journey to win the US Open
His success started last October when he closed his 2019 season in Las Vegas and said with a mischievous laugh, “I’m going to come back next year and look like someone else”. He added 40 pounds with intense training and a 6,000 calorie diet per day.
The COVID-19 epidemic closed Golf for three months, causing the US Open postponed from June to September. This gave DeChambeau more time to implement his plan of stretching the boundaries and playing faster and harder.
He came back beefy and stunned everyone on tour by his distance. In the first 5 events, he took the top 5 spots in each and won one.
Breaking records and making history
Half of them were finished at Winged Foot’s 6 US Open: Bryson DeChambeau, Fuzzy Zoeller and Greg Norman (1984). DeChambeau is only the first to finish a tournament under par in 6 US Open at Winged Foot among 894 competitors.
His 6-under 274 very low score, no one saw it coming. Especially since he has struggled so much since he last won in early July.
With a three-shot lead, DeChambeau exploded as he chased, he did not play the lead, as he said. He was left rough on the 14th and saved a right pitch from the deep grass behind the green.
He reduced another protein shake as he walked on the 15th on his way to a key topic that would confirm his position in the game as a pioneer.
