Rocket Mortgage Classic Recap: Bryson Brings It

Rocket Mortgage Classic Recap: Bryson Brings It

This article is part of our Weekly Recap series.

Bryson DeChambeau's plan to try and ace each and every hole appears to be working.

Thanks to a Sunday 65 – the best round of the day – DeChambeau claimed victory at the Rocket Mortgage Classic by three strokes. Still, neither the 360-yard drives nor the nearly 200-mph swing speeds – or even the number of protein shakes he took in on a daily basis – was his most impressive feat in Detroit. It was the composure he displayed Sunday, a day after bizarrely losing it on a cameraman.

DeChambeau no doubt saw that he was hammered all over social media on Saturday night and Sunday morning for getting in the face of the cameraman, who had the audacity to keep the camera focused on DeChambeau just a little too long for his liking. Yet DeChambeau didn't let that, or Matthew Wolff's three-shot overnight lead, faze him in the least.

The Tour's ever-growing strongman birdied Sunday's first hole at Detroit Golf Club while Wolff bogeyed it, and it was all gravy for DeChambeau after that. It extended a remarkable run for someone who has become the most-talked-about golfer on the planet. DeChambeau has now finished in the top eight in seven straight tournaments, and has moved up to No. 7 in the world rankings – right on the heels of his digital nemesis, Brooks Koepka.

DeChambeau has finished T3-T8-T6-1 since golf's restart. He is a combined 69-under par – 20 strokes better than the next best player
