DeChambeau Comes up Aces in Vegas

Some players, it seems, have a knack for winning and Bryson DeChambeau is showing himself to be one of those players.

DeChambeau won for the third time in his past five PGA Tour starts, starting the young wraparound season in much the same way he finished the previous one when he won the first two events of the FedEx Cup playoffs.

In his last five starts, DeChambeau has finished 1-1-T19-19-1. That does not include a 0-3 weekend in the Ryder Cup, but nothing much went right for the Americans in Paris.

For the calendar year, DeChambeau now has won four times on the PGA Tour and he was projected to climb to fifth in the world ranking.

“I was just trying to kick the rust off and I was able to play some great golf,” DeChambeau said. “I didn’t putt my best but I was still able to pull it off.”

It didn’t come easily on Sunday for DeChambeau, who found himself trailing with holes running out after Cantlay surged into the lead seeking to win the tournament for the second year in a row. Consecutive birdies at the 15th and 16th holes pushed Cantlay to 20-under par, one ahead of DeChambeau, who was playing behind him.

Everything changed in a matter of moments when Cantlay chunked a bunker shot at the par-3 17th and almost immediately thereafter DeChambeau holed a 57-foot eagle putt from behind the 16th green. When Cantlay bogeyed the 17th hole, DeChambeau had turned a one-stroke deficit into a two-stroke lead to with two holes to play.

“It was a tricky shot,” Cantlay said of his bunker shot at No. 17. “When I dug my left foot in, I didn’t feel much sand. When I hit my shot, there was more sand than I expected.”

DeChambeau, 25, has five Tour victories in his short professional career and only Justin Thomas and Dustin Johnson have more victories since the start of the 2016-17 season.

“There has been a lot of good play this year, and I think it’s just an accumulation of a lot of hard work,” DeChambeau said.

Sam Ryder finished third, two strokes behind DeChambau, after shooting 62 on Sunday, while Rickie Fowler was in a share of fourth after a closing 63.
