DeChambeau picks up maiden win

A Northern California native, DeChambeau won the 2010 California State Junior Championship at the age of 16. CEO Sam Allen presented DeChambeau with a check for $1,008,000, he rattled off the comparisons between he and Stewart. In 2015, the former SMU star became the fifth player to win the NCAA individual title and U.S. Amateur in the same year.

The uncharateristic slip up from the German saw him pipped for the title at Caves Valley Golf Club in Baltimore by American Scott McCarron.

"There has been a lot of talk", he said.

"I was able to take a pretty aggressive line, but I knew if I pulled a little bit it wouldn't go in the water because the wind", DeChambeau said of his approach. This week out here there was somebody that said that.

Earlier in the season, DeChambeau missed ten PGA Tour cuts in a row from the RBC Heritage through to the US Open and, as people began doubting him, he said he was overjoyed to prove those doubters wrong. "That's all it was".

He handled pressure with aplomb Sunday, making four birdie putts of 10 feet or longer on the back nine Sunday. After finding the fairway with his drive, he stuck a 7-iron from 194 yards to 14 feet.

Over the last decade, the JDC's winners have been name-players.

This was his breakthrough moment, much like Spieth and Harman.

DeChambeau seems likely to join them as big-stage guys. His final-round seven-under 64 earned him his second top 10 this season.

So what is this man's goal in golf? Win multiple majors? Ascend to the top of the World Golf Rankings?

"I definitely think they deserve it, you know, with this tournament being, you know, Tournament of the Year last year for the PGA Tour, I think it's great for them to get it", said Tavender Jones.

"Yeah, I don't really have a ton of regrets".

"So that is one of my bigger goals, to hopefully help out the game itself and bring more people in through these new ways of playing".

"I am an artist", DeChambeau said previous year. "I love creating things, and that's ultimately why I've become so scientific". He made a good run at No. 13 Sunday.

DeChambeau finished on 18-under 266 thanks to his six-under 65 with Rodgers having to settle for second place a shot behind after closing with a 70.

"My goal was to birdie every hole today and give myself a chance on every hole", Johnson said.

His win also includes an invitation to the British Open, which starts on Thursday. "I know my game is trending". If it's next week, fantastic. "I finally backed off of that 4 weeks ago and went back to what I was doing in college".

"All I had to do was come home in even par more or less".
