DECHAMBEAU JOINS ELITE CLUB AMERICAN Bryson DeChambeau dominated the 36-hole final of the US Amateur, defeating countryman Derek Bard 7 and 6, to join an elite club who have won the championship as well as the NCAA individual title in the same year. Only four other players – Jack Nicklaus (1961), Phil Mickelson (1990), Tiger Woods (1996) and Ryan Moore (2004) – have achieved the feat. The Californian, a senior at Dallas’ Southern Methodist University, was 2 up after 18 holes and lost the 19th hole after hooking his drive into trouble and making a bogey. It kick-started a run that clinched the title. "I thought, 'Keep pressing the pedal to the metal now, play Bryson golf,'" DeChambeau said later. DeChambeau won the next three holes with birdies and won seven in the next nine holes to put the result beyond doubt. "I can't believe what I just did," DeChambeau said. "I'm in golf history. I don't understand it yet. It's an honour to be in that field." Earlier in the week, Victoria’s Brett Coletta finished at seven under after 36 holes of the stroke play to win medalist honours for the US Amateur. The 19-year-old, who placed fifth in the recent Porter Cup and was playing in his first USGA championship, made just one bogey in 36 holes.

With Davis Love III in the lead and nearing the clubhouse at 17 under, Woods was just four shots from the lead and even par for the day. A birdie at the par-4 9th hole gave him some momentum, but that, and any chance of victory, came to a shuddering car crash-like halt with a triple bogey 7 at the 11th hole. And to listen to Woods describe what happened was like sitting in on a C-grader’s blow-by-blow account at the 19th hole.
