Memorial Tournament report

Bryson DeChambeau got the better of Byeong-Hun An in a playoff to win the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village.

At one point on Sunday, Patrick Cantlay had a two-shot lead, but three dropped shots on the back-nine meant he’d come up a shot short. Incidentally, his group was put on the clock halfway through the round.

DeChambeau and Kyle Stanley headed to the 18th tee tied for the lead, but DeChambeau’s approach found the green on the right hand side and three-putted, while Stanley’s tee shot ricocheted off a tree into the thick rough. They’d both tie Byeong-Hun An – who made two birdies in the final four holes to shoot a 69 – to head to a playoff.

Kyle Stanley was the first to be eliminated thanks to a wretched bit of luck. Again, his tee shot on the 18th would find an awkward spot, where he advanced it a couple of yards in the rough. He found the bunker with his approach, and his par attempt hit the flag but didn’t drop.

And so DeChambeau and An headed to the 18th tee again. This time, An pulled his approach well long but hit a beautiful flop shot to close range. But DeChambeau rolled in a 10-footer downhill for birdie to win his second PGA Tour title.

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.
