Bryson DeChambeau didn’t just win his maiden LIV Golf title, but he did so in some style…
You read that right! Bryson DeChambeau shot 58 at the Greenbrier to win his maiden LIV Golf title.
The American recorded 13 birdies to card just the seventh round of 58 in professional men’s golf.
He only needed to par the 18th hole to break 60. Instead he sank a long birdie putt to secure the title in the best way possible.
DeChambeau, who had not won since making the move to the LIV Golf tour last summer, shot 21-under-par over the course of the weekend.
DeChambeau started the final round at 11-under-par. He was a single shot behind the overnight leaders, David Puig and Matthew Wolff.
The American came flying out of the blocks with six birdies in his opening seven holes.
That run ended with a bogey on the par-3 8th hole, but three more birdies followed in the middle part of his round.
After pars on 13 and 14, DeChambeau then finished with four birdies to make history, leading to his wonderful celebrations on the 18th green.
Following the victory, he reflected on a first win since the death of his father late last year.
“He was with me out there today, no doubt,” DeChambeau said.
“It’s been almost a year, it’s been a really difficult couple of years but finishing out with a 58, it’s all glory to God and glory to him upstairs.
“I can’t thank my dad for all he taught me, my mom for all she taught me, my brother… it’s just amazing what I was able to do and it couldn’t have been done without all them.”
It was the first sub-60 round in LIV Golf’s short history, but the seventh overall in professional men’s golf.
The most well known of those belongs to Jim Furyk. He shot the only 58 on the PGA Tour to date, with a 12-under-par final round at TPC River Highlands in 2016.
However, Furyk’s effort was 15 years after the first – which came from Jason Bohn at the Bayer Championship, on the Canadian Tour, in 2001.
Ryo Ishikawa and Kim Seong-Hyeon have both had 58s on the Japan Tour, with Stephen Jaeger also scoring the same on the Web.com Tour just a week before Furyk did so at the Travelers Championship.
Prior to DeChambeau’s round at the Greenbrier, Alejandro del Rey was the most recent to do so. Del Rey’s effort came at the Swiss Challenge on the European Challenge Tour and was on a par-72 course. It remains the only 14-under-par round in men’s professional golf.
The win will get the attention of American Team Captain Zach Johnson, as we get ever closer to the Ryder Cup teams being picked.
