Bryson DeChambeau wins overwhelming US Open

American Bryson DeChambeau was the lone under-par golfer in the United States Open, which he won with a six-stroke priority on Sunday at the Winged Foot Golf Club.

The winner secured his first major title and seventh in his career on the PGA Tour. He is the third man to savor victory at this event and its amateur counterpart and the NCAA Division I Championships; Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods also accomplished the feat.

As was the case at the beginning of July at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, the last tournament DeChambeau (67) had won before that, it was Matthew Wolff (75) who took second place. The 21-year-old, who was making his first appearance in the Open, concluded the competition with a par of 280.

South African Louis Oosthuizen (73) completed the top 3 with a cumulative of 282 (+2). Dustin Johnson (70) finished fifth with a total of 285 (+5), one stroke ahead of Justin Thomas (72) and Rory McIlroy (75), among others.

Canadian Taylor Pendrith (70) took 23rd place at 290 (+10), while compatriot Adam Hadwin (80) struggled to drop to 54th at 299 (+19).
