Bryson DeChambeau shoots historic 58 to win LIV Golf Greenbrier

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.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
