With a final-round 67 – the only score under par on Sunday, Bryson DeChambeau claimed his maiden major title at the U.S. Open Championship.
DeChambeau finished his final day at the iconic Winged Foot Golf Club with a single bogey offset by two birdies and a game-changing eagle to reach 6-under par, six shots clear of Matthew Wolff (75).
The major win was DeChambeau’s seventh career PGA Tour title.
Along with the Jack Nicklaus medal and the classic silver jug, the 27-year old California native earned $2,250,000, 600 FedExCup points, and 100 OWGR points. He is expected to move to No. 5 in the Official World Golf Rankings when released later this evening.
Despite collapsing on Sunday, runner-up Wolff took home more money ($1,300,000) and world ranking points (60) than what the winner of next week’s Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship will receive ($720,000/24). In fact, the take-home haul of third place finisher, Louis Oosthuizen ($861,457/40), is also greater than what will be awarded to next week’s winner.
