bryson dechambeau puts us open victory down to blood sweat and tears in first major title win

Bryson DeChambeau put his commanding US Open victory down to ‘blood, sweat and tears’ after he powered his way to a first major title.

DeChambeau carded a closing 67 to finish six under par at Winged Foot, a record winning score by two shots at a revered venue where only two players had finished in red figures in five previous US Opens.

The 27-year-old was the only player to break par on a demanding final day and the only one not to shoot over par in any round.

He finished six shots clear of compatriot Matthew Wolff, who began the day with a two-stroke advantage but faded to a closing 75.

Asked how it felt to be called the US Open champion, DeChambeau said: ‘It sounds amazing, but surreal. It’s been a lot of hard work.

‘It’s one of those things that doesn’t really hit you – it’s not going to hit me until tonight, but I will say that my parents have given so much up for me. I mean, there were times that I went to school without any lunch money, and we had to make baloney sandwiches and didn’t have anything to eat.

‘We had some very, very difficult times, but every single day they always wanted the best for me, and they always gave me the opportunity to go golf, go practice, and go get better.

‘This one’s for my parents, it’s for my whole team. All the work, all the blood, sweat, and tears we put into it, it just means the world to me.’

DeChambeau’s physical transformation has been the main talking point since golf’s return to action following the coronavirus shutdown, the American putting on 20lbs of muscle to become one of the game’s biggest hitters.

The experiment appeared to bear fruit, with three straight top 10s followed by a sixth PGA Tour title. But the jury was out over whether it would work on the harder courses used for major championships, where thick rough is meant to penalise wayward drives.

A share of fourth in the US PGA Championship at Harding Park appeared to prove that it could, and DeChambeau removed any lingering doubt with his power-packed performance at Winged Foot.

Asked if the win validated his approach, DeChambeau added: ‘A hundred per cent, no doubt.

‘For me, it’s about the journey of – can I execute every shot more repeatably than everybody else? I was able to do that this week. That’s why I won by six.

‘Any major were all ones that I wanted to win, but I knew that my game would fit best for a US Open. The reason for that is I always felt growing up, in college, I was always a super straight driver of the golf ball, super great iron player.

‘Putting was always iffy, but I knew I could get around it on fast, quick greens. I’ve become a great putter, and my ball striking has improved consistently, and now I’ve got an advantage with this length, and that’s all she wrote.’

leeds suffer major injury blow with england midfielder kalvin phillips ruled out for six weeks after shoulder injury

LEEDS have been handed a major injury blow with Kalvin Phillips facing six weeks out.

The England midfielder, 24, suffered a shoulder knock in the 1-0 defeat to Wolves.

Phillips does not need surgery and the club confirmed he has already begun rehab.

A statement read: “Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips suffered a shoulder injury in last night’s Premier League defeat to Wolves at Elland Road.

“Whilst we are pleased to confirm that surgery is not required, the Leeds born England International could still face up to six weeks on the sidelines.

“Kalvin began his rehab at Thorp Arch this morning and will be working hard with the medical team to return to action as soon as possible.”

Phillips is set to miss games against Aston Villa, Leicester, Crystal Palace, Arsenal and Everton.

And he is also unlikely to play any part in England’s Nations League matches against Belgium and Iceland.

Phillips was knocked over by Wolves ace Raul Jimenez around ten minutes from the end of the defeat at Elland Road last night.

The Leeds man landed awkwardly on his right shoulder but played out the rest of the match.

Boss Marcelo Bielsawho could soon be Yorkshire Tea’s new TV face – will have to find cover to fill the defensive midfield role Phillips has made his own.

And the Argentine gaffer will have other injury concerns too.

Liam Cooper pulled out of the Wolves defeat in the warm-up and Pascal Strujik looked to injure his ankle just before Jimenez’s deflected strike found the net 20 minutes from time.
