10 Things To Know After Bryson DeChambeau Wins the Shriners

Ten things to know after the final round of the 2018 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open at TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas (NV) where Bryson DeChambeau won his fifth career PGA Tour title.

  1. Key Hole: After a birdie by Patrick Cantlay on the par-5 16th hole, Bryson DeChambeau found himself down one with three holes to go. But DeChambeau eagled No. 16, as Cantlay made bogey on the 17th to move into the lead by two with two to play.
  2. Key Stat: DeChambeau finished in the top 5 in both fairways (78.9%) and greens (83.3%) hit.
  3. Another Win: DeChambeau won for the third time in his last five starts. The others were the two playoff titles in September (The Northern Trust and Dell Technologies Championship).
  4. Closing Reputation: DeChambeau improves to 3-for-3 with the 54-hole lead/co-lead.
  5. Strong Defense: Cantlay carded a final-day 65 to finish alone in second in his title defense.
  6. Low Ryder: Aided by a career low round of 63, Sam Ryder posted a second top-four finish in his last three starts.
  7. Rickie Record: With an 8-under 63, Rickie Fowler posted the lowest final-round score of his career.
  8. Top Ancer: A Sunday round of 66 gave Abraham Ancer (T4) his second top-5 finish in three starts this season (T5-CIMB Classic).
  9. Slump Continues: A new season didn’t do much for Jordan Spieth’s game (or confidence) as the three-time major winner was a non factor in his 2018-19 debut, posting 71 (E) and 72 (+1) over the weekend to fall from the top 10 after round one to a final landing spot at T55.
  10. Ugly Finish: Peter Uihlein led after the first, second, and third rounds, but a final-day 75 sent him tumbling to a T23 finish.
