Bryson Goes Back-to-Back
Norton, MA – Back to back wins for Bryson in Boston! The second leg in the FedEx Cup Playoffs finished on Labor Day Monday in New England at TPC Boston with the professor himself, Bryson Dechambeau, emerging victorious. DeChambeau shot a final round 67 to not only secure his 4th PGA Tour victory but also likely one of the final spots on the US Ryder Cup team.
The 24-year-old scientist-turned-golfer was in the final pairing with a lesser known touring pro named Abraham Ancer who actually held the lead to begin the day. Before these two even teed-off, however, there were several big names putting up low rounds on the day, and pressuring the leaders. Dustin Johnson and Phil Mickelson both caught fire on their rounds shooting a 64 and 63, respectively. PGA Championship winner Brooks Koepka along with Justin Rose, Hideki Matsuyama, and Bubba Watson were also making final-round charges up the leaderboard.
Bryson DeChambeau quickly jumped ahead of his playing partner and much of the field after birdieing the par-5 2nd while Ancer bogeyed. Bryson continued his tear of TPC Boston with 5 birdies on the front, keeping his name atop the leaderboard and leaving Ancer without an answer. The leaderboard saw multiple players (many at one time) grab a share of the lead throughout the day, but after DeChambeau stuffed his approach close on 15 and draining the birdie, he all but cemented his name on the trophy. Although Bryson lipped out his birdie putt at 18, his 2-shot advantage capped off his second consecutive win and a stellar start to the FedEx Cup playoffs.
Bryson now has a commanding lead in the FedEx Cup standings heading into the BMW Championship at Aronimink Golf Club in Pennsylvania next week. With his win and good play, Bryson will also likely be the next captains pick for the Ryder Cup team later this month.
