‘Hulk’ DeChambeau wins second LIV Golf title, 6.3 billion won in prize money
Bryson DeChambeau (USA), known as a long hitter during his time on the U.S. Professional Golf Association (PGA) Tour, has won his second LIV Golf title.
DeChambeau shot an 8-under 63 on the final day of the 12th edition of LIV Golf ($25 million purse) at Rich Harvest Farms (par-71) in Sugar Grove, near Chicago, Illinois, USA, to win with a three-round total of 13-under 200. LIV Golf plays a standard three-round, 54-hole event to determine the winner.
Behind DeChambeau, Mark Leishman (AUS) and Anirban Lahiri (IND) are tied for second place, one stroke back.
DeChambeau, who recorded his first LIV Golf victory in August at the 10th edition of the event, returned to the form he showed during his PGA Tour career with his second win in just over a month.
Since turning pro in 2018, DeChambeau has eight wins on the PGA Tour. He was at his peak in the 2017-2018 season with three wins and two more in 2020-2021 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and the U.S. Open. After an injury-plagued fall from grace, DeChambeau moved on when LIV Golf launched last June.
After struggling to compete in the early days of LIV Golf, DeChambeau has bounced back with two wins this year alone. He tied for fourth at the PGA Championship in May and tied for 20th at the U.S. Open in June.먹튀검증
He is the third player on LIV Golf to win multiple events this season, joining Taylor Gooch (USA) with three wins and Cameron Smith (AUS) with two.
DeChambeau earned $4 million for his victory, and added $750,000 for winning the team event with Lahiri, Charles Howell III (USA) and Paul Casey (England).
Brooks Koepka (USA), who is the only LIV Golf player competing in the Ryder Cup, a golf competition between the United States and Europe that begins on Sept. 29, finished tied for 24th at 5-under-par 208.
