Bryson DeChambeau claims sixth PGA Tour crown with Rocket Mortgage Classic triumph 1

Bryson DeChambeau eclipsed Matthew Wolff to win the Rocket Mortgage Classic by three strokes and claim his sixth PGA Tour title.

Wolff was the player to beat in Sunday’s final round, teeing off with a three-shot lead at Detroit Golf Club in Michigan, but he faltered and shot a 71. Fellow American DeChambeau rose to the top with a 7-under-par 65 to mark his fourth successive season with a victory.

DeChambeau was almost flawless on Day 4, holing eight birdies and just one bogey. He finished by birdieing the last three holes to end at 23 under for the tournament.

The 26-year-old DeChambeau  who had top-10 finishes in his past six starts heading into the tournament, signed for four successive rounds in the 60s.

Rickie Fowler climbed 28 places into a tie for 12th at 14 under thanks to his final-round 67.
