US Open 2024: Bryson DeChambeau anything but boring as he takes control

 


PINEHURST, N.C. As Bryson DeChambeau stepped onto the 13th green Saturday night at Pinehurst No. 2, he was greeted with enthusiastic applause and lit up by the setting sun.

Some call this time the golden hour.

To DeChambeau, it probably seemed like an hour.

DeChambeau had just taken the flag from a fairway bunker, sticking his approach from 149 yards to 6 feet, and was about to take total control of this 124th US Open. Meanwhile, DeChambeau's competitor, Ludvig Berg, was messing up the short par 4, pulling his drive into the left waste area, missing the green with his approach and sending each of his next two shots through the green.

As Berg assessed shot after shot, eventually carding a triple bogey, DeChambeau waited.

And I waited.

And I waited.

“It was one of the hardest putts I've had, so for me it's just about watching it, being focused, trying to stay focused for 10 minutes,” DeChambeau said . Look, most of the time I was just trying to walk and keep my body moving. I was just kind of in my own world.

DeChambeau's birdie roll just slipped past the cup.

What ensued after that was a wild hour-plus that featured some fist-pumping birdies, miraculous recoveries and a sloppy double bogey that ultimately kept the field within reach of the US champion Open 2020.

DeChambeau repeated the phrase all week: try to play boring golf. The middle of the greens never moves.

The fact that DeChambeau was just a little behind with his ball striking worked in his favor more often than not. He wasn't trying to signal the approaches at Nos. 13 and 14. His shot into the 13th green was knocked back before returning to the hole. On the next hole, DeChambeau made a big lie into the pine straw to the right of the fairway; his 134-yard corner shot didn't shoot the way DeChambeau wanted, and the wind blew it back at the pin, with the ball ending up 9 feet away.

That's kind of what you're doing here is you're trying to play conservative golf that gives you the opportunity to get closer in certain scenarios, said DeChambeau, who this time made the birdie putt to push himself at 8 cents.

When his ball disappeared into the cup, DeChambeau threw a punch amid more roars and even USA, USA, USA! songs.

It just gives me an adrenaline rush and allows me to focus more on performing for the fans, myself and my family,” DeChambeau said. It just inspires me.

DeChambeau accepts support for US Open 2024

Bryson DeChambeau recaps his third-round 67 at the 2024 US Open and his ability to round greens, as well as enjoy fan support with a favorable lead heading into the final round.

He needed it, as he missed each of his next two greens. He was up and down at No. 15, but his approach to the par-4 16th came 20 yards from the hole and settled to the front left of the green. Coming to a straight hole, DeChambeau missed his target by just a few feet and his ball rolled back in front of the green.

He would end up making a double bogey, his first of the championship, which is also significant, given that each of the three previous U.S. Open champions at Pinehurst never made worse than a bogey en route to victory.

If anyone can denigrate this trend, it's Bryson.

Still aiming for the big part of the green on the 180-yard, par-3 17th hole, DeChambeau pushed his tee shot slightly, sending it on an ultra-aggressive line right at the flag. He then brought home the 12-footer for his sixth birdie of the round.

When asked about that number after his 3-under 67, DeChambeau shook his head and exhaled at the surprising feat before saying, “Unbelievable.”

No one else in the six shots before Sunday had more than four birdies.

He played well all day, Berg, who backed with a 73, said of DeChambeau. He was running the ball up and down from the bunkers, hitting shots really well. I can not do anything about it. Obviously, what happened to me on the 13th is not ideal. It doesn't necessarily change the way you try to approach this golf course. I think there's only a certain way to play. If you don't play this way, you will be punished. That's what I did.

Pinehurst No. 2 has had both close victories (Payne Stewart by one shot in 1999; Michael Campbell by two in 2005) and a five-shot rout of Martin Kaymer in 2014. With Collin Morikawa shooting a 66 on Saturday, a round able to catch up with DeChambeau appears there. DeChambeau is at 7 under, three shots ahead of Matthieu Pavon, Rory McIlroy and Patrick Cantlay.

Cantlay, who spoke in the interview room just before DeChambeau, stressed that he would continue to work his way around the difficult Donald Ross gem as he came out Sunday in the penultimate group alongside from McIlroy, just ahead of DeChambeau and Pavon.

It takes patience and discipline, Cantlay said. I did a good job this week trying not to shoot too many flags, especially when I don't have a wedge in my hands and I'm going to implement that game plan tomorrow.

On the program for Sunday: even more boring golf which, if Saturday evening proved anything, could and probably will be anything but.
