Bryson DeChambeau’s win with the TOUR B X is the second straight for Bridgestone Golf. Brandt Snedeker, also played the TOUR B X ball to win last week at the Wyndham Championship.
We spoke with new Bridgestone Golf President and CEO Dan Murphy earlier this month. He said this, “We’re working hard to make premium golf balls and speak to better golfers. Low handicap golfers use the most golf balls and it’s a pyramid of influence. If the better players move to Bridgestone Golf, others will follow.”
Bryson DeChambeau is one of those low-handicap players Murphy was talking about. Yesterday’s win is his third PGA TOUR win the past 13 months. He joins an elite group of only 10 golfers in history to hold that many TOUR titles before turning 25. DeChambeau carded four rounds in the 60s, his lowest a 63 on Saturday, he led the field in greens-in-regulation and finished among the top five in driving distance, averaging nearly 300 yards.
“This was the first time I’ve had to hold onto a lead during the final round, but to be able to push forward and make a couple putts when I needed to was great,” said DeChambeau. “I have to thank Bridgestone Golf for being very instrumental in helping me get here and, if I can keep playing the way I am, I can do some great things.”
This landslide victory improves DeChambeau’s chances of being named a Captain’s Pick to the 2018 U.S. Ryder Cup team. He finished one spot behind the eight automatic qualifiers.
Bryson DeChambeau again proved he is among the PGA TOUR’s elite by claiming the No.1 spot in FedExCup Standings following a commanding four-shot victory at the season’s first FedExCup Playoff event, The Northern Trust, yesterday at Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, New Jersey.
