12 under par in final 3Rs of 10th tournament
Gained 110 pounds and lost 16 pounds this year
Won 5.2 billion in prize money, beating Pereira by 6 strokes
Bryson DeChambeau (30-USA), the ‘slimmed down Hulk’, shot a ‘dream 58’ to win his first LIV Golf title.
DeChambeau carded 13 birdies and just one bogey in the final three rounds of the 10th event of the LIV Golf season on Sunday at the Old White Course (Par 70) in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, USA, to cut 12 strokes off his total. His final total of 23-under-par 187 earned him a six-stroke victory over Mito Pereira (Chile). He earned $4 million for his victory.
DeChambeau is an accomplished golfer with eight wins on the PGA Tour, including the 2020 U.S. Open. However, three years ago, he began bulking up to increase his muscle mass and physique in an effort to hit the long ball. He left the PGA Tour last year to join LIV Golf, sponsored by Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund, from its inception, but was unable to make an impact due to injuries.
Deschambeau, who has lost 16 kilograms this year, was in fine form on the day. Twice he had four consecutive birdies, on the fourth through seventh holes and the 15th through 18th. On the final 18th (par-3), she made a long birdie putt of more than 10 meters. His driver distance didn’t drop much either, hovering around 350 yards. A bogey on the eighth (par-3) would have been the first 57 in big-league golf history.
The only other 58 on the PGA Tour was by Jim Furyk (USA) in the fourth round of the 2016 Travelers Championship. On the Japan Golf Tour (JGTO), Ryo Ishikawa (JPN) shot 58 in 2010 and Sung Hyun Kim (JPN) in 2021. Deschambeau said: “This is the best moment of my golf career. 한국야동 I will cherish this day for the rest of my life.”
