What’s In The Bag: Bryson DeChambeau, 2018 Dell Technologies Championship

0

Bryson DeChambeau is making a statement to the rest of the PGA. His style might be completely unique, but he’s here to win and he’s after one of Jim Furyk’s at-large Ryder Cup picks.

In arguably the strongest field he’s faced this season Bryson didn’t back down. Amidst an onslaught of low scores from some big names Bryson carded a 4-under 67 during Monday’s final round and a total of 268 (-16 under) outlasting Justin Rose by two strokes to win the 2018 Dell Technologies Championship.

This is Bryson’s 3rd win of the season, and second consecutive win to begin the FedEx Cup playoffs. While 7 other players have won multiple playoff events in one year, only Vijay Singh has won the first two playoff events, a feat he accomplished back in 2008.

DeChambeau joined some elite company with this victory, Golf Channel’s Dell Technologies Championship coverage noted yesterday that Bryson is the fifth player in the last 30 years to win 3 times on Tour in one season before the age of 25. The other four? Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth, and Justin Thomas.

Since we’ve talked about Bryson’s unique setup after wins at the Memorial Tournament and the Northern Trust, let’s take a look at the FedEx Cup standings and rundown who is in the top 70 and headed to the BMW Championship and who is out and headed to vacation.

Following his back to back wins, Bryson finds himself number 1 in the FexEx Cup Standings and has already secured his spot into the season finale at the Tour Championship. Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose, Tony Finau, and Justin Thomas round out the top 5 and are all within striking distance of the top spot.

Keith Mitchell, Peter Uihlein and Brice Garnett all made late charges on Monday in Boston, each sinking multiple birdies in the final stretch to secure their place at the BMW Championship.

Perhaps the most impressive of all was Abraham Ancer’s T-7 finish when he needed it the most. Since points are weighted so heavily in the FexEx Cup Playoffs, Ancer shot up the rankings from 92nd to 56th and is safely onto the next tournament.
