FedEx Cup: Bryson DeChambeau gets the rare repeat in PGA playoffs

PGA Dell Technologies Championship- Third Round

PGA Dell Technologies Championship- Third Round

He had not played competitive golf in a year, the result of his fourth back surgery.

On a day when the temperature reached 91 degrees at TPC Boston with a heat index of 100, DeChambeau proved to be the hottest golfer on the planet.

The doubts about Bryson DeChambeau have all but disappeared thanks to the 24-year old's performances in the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup playoffs. That came six days after he captured the Northern Trust by four strokes. He also believes strongly in biomechanics. "I think you have to look at the big picture through the course of the year statistically". They are boisterous, I have a lot of respect for them and we are looking for players that we thought would handle that situation well and would thrive, love the challenge.

Well, kind of. So how much better can he get?

But he held his nerve with a superb chip and although his birdie try hooked out, his closing 67 was two shots too good for the field. Pieters endured a slow start to the year but hasn't missed a cut since May, picking up three top-tens in his last five starts alone. "It is cool to have people say that to you".

Even his friends who encouraged him still thought he was insane.

Love captained the U.S. team to victory in 2016, and Stricker was the winning U.S. Presidents Cup team captain previous year.

By the way, for the past year and half his father has switched to same-length irons as well. "We have some incredible players and a special opportunity to do something we haven't done in a long time".

"People can put that title on me, but I'm not going to".

DeChambeau's win in MA makes him the second player - after Vijay Singh in 2008 to win the first two legs of the FedEx Cup play-offs.

Woods, a 14-time major champion, and DeChambeau, coming off this third career PGA title at last week's Northern Trust event, are each expected to receive "wildcard" picks from U.S. captain Jim Furyk on Tuesday. Singh effectively had the $10 million prize wrapped up before the finale.

He has yet to win since making his comeback but was in contention at both the Open Championship and the PGA Championship while Phil Mickelson also won his first PGA Tour event since 2013 at the WGC-Mexico Championship in May.

Abraham Ancer leads at 13 under, but as we've seen in recent years, no lead is safe in the final round here.

Dustin Johnson retained the No. 1 world ranking with his tie for seventh at TPC Boston, extending his margin over Brooks Koepka, who finished one spot back in a tie for eighth.

The 48-year-old reminded Furyk of his quality with a dazzling eight-under-par 63 in the final round of the Dell Technologies Championship on Monday. Australian Cameron Smith closed the gap with a pair of late birdies, but DeChambeau answered with a birdie on No. 15 to keep his lead at two shots.
