Who will want to face Bryson DeChambeau at the Ryder Cup? Keel Timmins wraps up the action from Boston, where the hottest player on the planet won his fourth PGA Tour title

What happened at the Dell Technologies Championship?

Bryson DeChambeau completed a perfect fortnight as he landed his second win in as many weeks at the Dell Technologies Championship at TPC Boston.

The American’s latest triumph – a two-shot win over Justin Rose – almost certainly locks up his spot for the Ryder Cup later this month as well as giving the American an excellent opportunity to cash the $10m FedEx Cup bonus prize at the upcoming Tour Championship.

Fresh off his comfortable win at last week’s The Northern Trust, DeChambeau opened with two fairly average rounds, but it was his third round 63 when paired with Tiger Woods on Sunday that catapulted the 24-year-old into contention.

And when DeChambeau made the turn with three straight birdies in the final round, it looked as though it could be yet another closing round.

Hideki Matsuyama made an early charge, but the Japanese’s effort was stopped in its tracks with two straight bogeys on 11 and 12. Rafa Cabrera Bello then joined the lead as he aimed to catch the attention of European captain Thomas Bjorn, but the Spaniard made three late bogeys in the final six holes.

Australia’s Cameron Smith managed to get within one of the leader, but his race was brought to an abrupt end when dumping his approach on the 18th into the hazard short of the green.

Instead, it was Justin Rose who managed to get closest to DeChambeau owing to four birdies in the final six holes – but it wouldn’t make any difference, with the American yet again in imperious form as he closed the tournament out with relative ease.

When his lead was cut to just one shot, DeChambeau promptly rolled in an eight-footer on 15 for birdie to regain his advantage.

All it needed was three pars to finish to secure his third PGA Tour success in the space of three months – a victory that will see the Golfing Scientist rise to seventh in the world rankings.

Meanwhile, the significant Monday movers were Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson. Lefty’s eight-under round of 63 pipped Johnson by a shot to the score of the day.
