DeChambeau up to 4th in the FedExCupFenix XCell
Bryson DeChambeau picks up his sixth PGA TOUR victory, by winning the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit, and moves to No. 4 in the FedExCup.
DeChambeau becomes the first PGA TOUR winner to lead the field in Strokes Gained: Off the Tee and Strokes Gained: Putting in the ShotLink era.
DeChambeau earns seventh consecutive top-10 finish and is the only player with top-10 finishes in each of the first four events since the PGA TOUR’s return to regular golf tournaments.
He picks up sixth PGA TOUR victory: 2017 John Deere Classic, 2018 the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide, 2018 THE NORTHERN TRUST, 2018 Dell Technologies Championship, 2018 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, and now the 2020 Rocket Mortgage Classic.
Astonishingly his Victory comes in his 104th TOUR start at the age of 26 years, 9 months, 19 days!!!
Seems the extra pounds DeChambeau has added during the lockdown has paid off big time.
After entering the final round with a three-stroke lead, Matthew Wolff (2nd/-20) carded a 1-under 71 to finish three behind DeChambeau. Matthew was seeking to become the youngest two-time PGA TOUR winner since Tiger Woods; marked just the second top-10 finish on TOUR for the 2019 3M Open champion.
Three-time PGA TOUR winner Kevin Kisner (3rd/-18) closed with a bogey-free 6-under 66 for his best finish since winning the 2019 World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play.
And Ryan Armour followed last week’s T6 at the Travelers Championship with a T4 this week to record consecutive top-10 finishes for the first time on tour.
Cameron Champ, who was added to the field on Wednesday after a change in the PGA TOUR’s health and safety plans, finished T12. Webb Simpson still maintains his lead in the FedExCup with a T8 finish, and Rocket Mortgage ambassador Rickie Fowler posted bookend 67s to finish T12 with Champ.
