Bryson DeChambeau wins brutal US Open

Sep 21, 2020

Bryson DeChambeau was the only player to finish under par at this year’s US Open at Winged Foot. The West course is regarded as one of the toughest tests in golf and its reputation was proved correct. DeChambeau set a number of records on his way to his six shot victory – joining Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods as one of only three players to win the NCAA individual title, US Amateur and US Open.

Matthew Wolff was the leader going into the final round and this great talent aimed to become the first rookie to win the US Open, however he faded into second place as DeChambeau was the only player able to tame the course during the fourth round.

South African Louis Oosthuizen finished in third spot, one of only two internationals in the Top 10 with North Ireland’s Rory McIlroy (T8).

Despite finishing on 12 over par, Lucas Herbert was the best placed Aussie in T31. Cameron Smith, Jason Day and Adam Scott all tied in 38th spot on 14 over, while Matt Jones, Marc Leishman, Curtis Luck, Scott Hend and Amateur Lukas Michal all missed the Cut.

Other big names to miss the weekend included 2020 US PGA Champion Collin Morikawa, Tiger Woods, Justin Rose, Phil Mickelson and Jordan Spieth. No doubt their attention now turns to the final major of the year an unfamiliar timeslot in November – The Masters at Augusta.
