Northern Trust Report

Bryson DeChambeau backed up a moving day 63 with a solid Sunday performance to win the first FedEx Cup event and his second title of the season following his win at the Memorial Tournament.

DeChambeau clawed back from potentially damaging bogeys at the 3rd and 9th to card a clean homeward nine, to sign for a 2-under-par 69 and end the day how he started it – with a four-stroke victory.

Back-to-back birdies in his opening holes sent him six clear before one was wiped out immediately and another right before the turn – but the one they call The Scientist held his nerve to reach 18-under, enough for a comfortable win.

A winner after a play-off at The Memorial back in March proved the 24-year-old can deal with the pressure of a championship Sunday, but he will have had the Porsche European Open, where he was 5-over-par for his final four holes to miss out on the silverware, in his mind.

Aaron Wise, a winner on the PGA Tour as well this season, briefly threatened having made a string of birdies to get within two, but the South African-born player dropped shots at 16 and 17 to finish in a tie for 5th.

Tony Finau drained a 25 foot birdie at the 13th and followed that up with another on 14 to grab 2nd place for himself, giving the big-hitting Utah local his 3rd runner-up finish this season – a result which sees him from 12th to 4th in the FedEx Cup rankings.

But Finau, nor any player, could mount a worthy challenge for DeChambeau, who, after back-to-back birdies at 12 and 13 to regain his four shot lead, strolled home with five straight pars.

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.
