- First major championship for 27-year-old Californian
- Overnight-leader Wolff finishes second, six shots back
The whingeing, whining and gnashing of teeth as regards this US Open outcome promises to be more entertaining than the closing stages of its 120th edition. Bryson DeChambeau is a major winner. He holds as many US Open titles as Tom Watson and Gary Player, which is one more than Seve Ballesteros and Nick Faldo. The professor isn’t so nutty after all. He may, in fact, have changed the shape of golf inside four competitive rounds.
History will show that on a typically brutal US Open Sunday, DeChambeau lapped the field at Winged Foot. His 67 and six under total ensured a six-stroke victory over Matthew Wolff. The 27-year-old DeChambeau was the only player in the 61-man field to break par on day four.
