DeChambeau Engineers Playoff Double

By Ron Green Jr. of Global Golf Post

Maybe there is an equation for timing a hot streak because Bryson DeChambeau, the essential golf scientist, has picked the perfect time to play the best golf of his young PGA Tour career.

Tacking a victory at TPC Boston on to his playoff-opening win at the Northern Trust a week earlier did multiple things for the 24-year-old Californian:

It further reinforced his place atop the FedEx playoff race, moving him closer to the $10 million bonus prize though he will need a big week later this month at the Tour Championship at East Lake, where he is guaranteed to be the top seed.

It virtually cemented his spot on the Ryder Cup team, which captain Jim Furyk s expected to make official at his announcement of three captain’s picks today in Philadelphia.

And, it put DeChambeau in a new orbit in terms of star status. The hot young clique that includes Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, and Rickie Fowler, among others, now has DeChambeau as a member. Consider this: DeChambeau has now won as many PGA Tour events as Fowler (four).

DeChambeau, who started the final round one stroke behind Abraham Ancer, closed his first nine with three birdies on Monday to put himself in position to win for the second week in a row.

“Consistency has been a big thing for me obviously,” DeChambeausaid. “I’ve been trying to get that week in and week out.” I was able to figure something out on the putting green last week.”

Runner-up Justin Rose shot 68 in the final round, while Cameron Smith bogeyed the finishing hole to finish third, three strokes behind.

In the tournament within a tournament, six golfers played their way into the top 70 in the FedEx Cup standings to earn a spot in this week’s BMW Championship at Aronimink.

Those who earned spots in this week’s field were Ancer, C.T. Pan, Peter Uihlein, Brice Garnett, Tyrell Hatton and Keith Mitchell. The six players whose seasons ended as a result of being bumped from the top 70 were Nick Watney, Jimmy Walker, Whee Kim, Kevin Streelman, Stewart Cink, and Ryan Moore.

The top five in FedEx Cup points are DeChambeau, Dustin Johnson, Rose, Tony Finau and Justin Thomas.
