DeChambeau, recorded rounds of 69, 68, 70 and 67 to capture a six stroke victory at the 120th U.S. Open held at the legendary Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck, New York.
DeChambeau was the only player to finish the tournament under par. This was his eighth win and first major title since he joined the PGA TOUR in 2017.
He ranked 1st in Eagles, T-4th in Birdies, 1st in Strokes Gained Tee to Green (17.918), 1st in Strokes Gained Approach to the Green (7.608), 2nd in Strokes Gained Off the Tee (5.331), and 1st in Strokes Gained Total (22.273). He also ranked 3rd in Scrambling (65.38%), 3rd in Putting (+2.99) and T-5th for Greens in Regulation (63.89%).
This U.S. Open victory was a major validation of DeChambeau’s “outside-the-box” approach to the game.
“One hundred percent, no doubt,” DeChambeau said. “For me, it’s about the journey of can I execute every shot more repeatable than everybody else. I was able to do that this week. That’s why I won by six.”
This victory earned him a paycheck for $2.25 million dollars and 600 FedEx Cup Points. He is now ranked 1st on the FedEx Cup Points List and 9th in the Official World Golf Rankings.

The "muscle man" hit only 23 fairways, but he still distanced the entire competition by six or more strokes ...
From CaddyShack Michael to CaddieScience Tim.
The Pitch from Caddie CaddyShack " I am the man for your bag"
Where’s the flag?” DeChambeau asked his caddie Tim Tucker as they stood on the tee at the 444-yard, par-4 14th hole. At this point DeChambeau, who has always sought every piece of information available, was already three up on a faltering Wolff.
“Twelve on and four off the left,” Tucker said.
With that, DeChambeau swung from the heels and ripped a 296-yard drive – into the wind.
Did it hit the fairway? Oddly enough, DeChambeau made that question a moot point. He hit six of 14 fairways Sunday and 23 of 56 for the week, but thrived, anyway. That flew in the face of the conventional wisdom that there was absolutely no way to play Winged Foot from the rough...
We saw it all DeChambeau's scientifical approach did work at Winged Foot.
Michael ends up caddying only Monday/Tusday practice rounds to local PGA Danny Balin.
Speaking from the DucksInn/Aberlady/EastLothian/Scotland, by Stephane Barras
Should we say a "Tap" or a "Tap IN"? What is its distance and how should we execute it?
These are many questions that were unanswered before 2011. Since 2012 and the International research publication of "Better Understanding Putting Definition Perception and Goals" every thing is clearer today due to the so called the Barras SPD (Standard Putting Definition) .
During my 6 months quest/research around the world as far as Australia to better understand putting, I had the privilege to and or follow/coach/caddie/interview some of the best players in the World. At that time Dustin Johnston was the World no.9 and I attended one of his media interview.
Quote from Dustin Johnston after his 66 second round at the 2011 Austrailian Open : "Today I have missed a few short putts. Most birdies I made were "TAP-IN" or from 3 to 4 feet"
As a result and after gathering all the data and information needed. > We now should say "TAP" (from 0 to 2 feet - Zone1) > You can find all details described in my book "LaDifference" 5th (French) edition page on 164 http://www.editions-carte.ch/editions/difference-976.html or on www.puttzones.com (English).
