DeChambeau targets Major glory after Rocket romp

06 July 2020 20:33:30 GMTPlus10

Bryson DeChambeau is on course to be a contender for all three Majors this year after a three-shot victory in the Rocket Mortgage Classic.

DeChambeau went into the final round with a three-shot deficit but the Californian closed with three consecutive birdies - his final-round 65 was the best score in the field - to triumph in comfortable fashion.

The 26-year-old, who can boast form figures of 5-2-4-3-8-6-1 from his last seven PGA Tour events, has taken his game to a new level through gaining muscle and adding driving distance. He now has six Tour titles under his belt and will go into the US PGA Championship next month looking to become a Major champion.

The US Open is in September and the Masters is in November - and he is expected to be a threat in both.

"Anytime you get close for a few times and you don't win, it obviously makes you think," said DeChambeau.

"I did not know if I was going to win today - I had no idea - and I would have been okay either way. I would have still been going on and grinding and working as hard as I possibly can, but it is definitely validating and exciting to be able to win having a whole different body.

"This is a little emotional for me because I did do something a little different - I changed my body, changed my mindset and I was able to accomplish a win while playing a completely different style of golf."

DeChambeau is 13.00 to win the US PGA and is also 13.00 for the US Open.
