Bryson DeChambeau cards crazy low 58 to win LIV Golf Greenbrier

Bryson DeChambeau blitzed the field with a closing 58 at the LIV Golf event in Greenbrier.

Requiring two putts on the final green to card a 59, DeChambeau rolled in a monster putt to notch up a 12-under 58 to win LIV Golf Greenbrier by six strokes.

LIV Golf of course reported on the monster final putt and celebration.

He left nothing to chance, holing the mammoth putt for birdie, then celebrating with a leap for the ages – and into the history books. The Crushers GC Captain set off a wild celebration on a rainy finish at The Old White course with an incredible round of 12-under 58, the lowest in LIV Golf’s young history and just the second in elite professional men’s golf.

And if you’re interested, DeChameabu has his driver going down the middle again after switching to an old trusty model. Geoff Shackelford quoted some of his comments in a post-tournament summary of the “audibly offensive golf tournament” at The Quadilateral.

“Hit it on the toe, the heel, everything comes back down the middle of the fairway.”

Since the governing bodies shelved the driver component of distance-curbing proposals after initial feedback, DeChambeau merely said the quiet part out loud: the modern driver takes less skill to hit and allows elite players to get away with misses.

While hardly a newsflash from White Sulphur Springs that the modern driver allows a skilled and thoughtful player to swing with abandon and put in less work, it’s still wild to see a player say the quiet part out loud.
