Bryson DeChambeau etched his name in LIV Golf history during the thrilling final round at the White Course at Greenbrier in West Virginia on Sunday. On a dampened course, DeChambeau achieved a remarkable feat by shooting an astounding 58, becoming only the fourth player on a top-level tour to accomplish this feat. This extraordinary performance led him to claim his first-ever title in LIV Golf, marking the lowest single-round score in the league’s history.
“It’s probably the greatest moment in my golf career,” Bryson DeChambeau humbly acknowledged.
The 2020 U.S. Open champion displayed exceptional skill, recording a 58 with just a single bogey on his card. He concluded the tournament with an impressive score of 23-under 187, leaving him a notable six shots ahead of his closest competitor, Mito Pereira.
“It’s beyond words,” DeChambeau continued. “I’ve been working so hard for a long time, and I knew something special was going to come at some point, I just didn’t know when. … Then today, I just kind of felt everything clicking.”
DeChambeau’s performance stands alongside other golf legends who achieved the elusive 58 mark. Jim Furyk accomplished the feat at the Travelers Championship on the PGA Tour in 2016. Ryo Ishikawa achieved the milestone at The Crowns in 2010, and S.J. Kim joined the elite group at the 2021 Golf Partner Pro-Am on the Japan Golf Tour.
The path to victory for Bryson DeChambeau included a remarkable 61 on Saturday, which brought him within one shot of the leader, Matthew Wolff. However, on Sunday, DeChambeau soared to new heights with his 58, leaving his competitors in awe. Wolff shot a respectable 66, securing a tie for third place with Richard Bland and David Puig.
This triumph marked DeChambeau’s first win on any tour since the 2021 Arnold Palmer Invitational, making the victory even more significant for him. As a reward for his extraordinary performance, he will take home a well-deserved prize of $4 million.
In the LIV Golf leaderboard, Talor Gooch maintains his position at the top with an impressive 145 points. Meanwhile, DeChambeau’s exceptional performance catapulted him to the fifth spot. As the season progresses, fans can look forward to four more exciting events that promise to keep the adrenaline flowing.
Bryson DeChambeau’s historic achievement will undoubtedly be remembered as a defining moment in LIV Golf’s history, showcasing the extraordinary talent and dedication of this exceptional golfer. With each stroke, he has etched his name among the legends of the sport, leaving fans eager to witness more of his brilliance in the forthcoming events.
