2020 US Open Leaderboard, Winner: Bryson DeChambue captures First Major with Winged Foot

Published on


Bryson DeChambue defended his best round at the 2020 US Open, winning 3-under-67 at Winged Foot on Sunday, claiming his first major championship of his career. With just two strokes from the week’s best 18-hole score, Dechambue’s last round (65) effortlessly combines tough and sometimes tough conditions, tea length, and control around the greens.

Decombue, who overtook 21-year-old Matthew Wolf (54-hole leader), was the only golfer in the field to complete the final round score equally and make history in his seventh career. Win the PGA Tour. The last time a U.S. Open champion owned the final round was 1955 – 38 years before Dechambue was born (!) – when Jack Fleck withdrew after defeating Ben Hogan in the 18-hole playoffs. He polished in 72nd hole style, leaving a defense and letting out a scream.

It’s been a tumultuous year for Dechambue, who captured golf’s first major Sunday of the 2020-21 season. Over the past year, he has added significant amounts of muscle to his 6-foot-1 frame, making himself the longest-running golfer in the world. The new Edge comes with five top finishes this calendar year, a top-five finish at last month’s PGA Championship (the best of the past), and a gain from the tees that become clearer with each passing event.

Dechambue was fourth in strokes from tea this week and fourth in the driving distance on Sunday. He also made the eagle in the final round and became the first player since 1937 to win the US Open. For every Justin Ray. In the ninth hole, Decombue executed it and from there jumped to victory.

The runner-up finish was the aforementioned Wolf who had the pace to create his own history before conquering the 54-hole two-stroke lead. If he had closed it, Wolf would have become the youngest U.S. Open champion since 1923 (Bobby Jones) and the youngest major champion since the Tiger Woods (1997 Masters). Instead, he finished with 75 runs in 5 overs in the final over, trying to maintain Decombue’s impressive performance. This is Wolf’s second consecutive top-five finish in the wake of his T4 finish at last month’s PGA Championship.

Harris English (+2) and Louis Ost Stuisen (+2) are in the top five for the third two ways. Dustin Johnson, Will Salatoris and Sander Schuffel were relegated to fifth.
