If there was anyone destined to find another victory on the PGA Tour it was Bryson DeChambeau. Since returning to action after the PGA Tour came to a halt due to the coronavirus pandemic, DeChambeau has been in sensational form, showing off his new size and power and now he has added the Rocket Mortgage Classic to his list of victories.
DeChambeau was bombing his Cobra SPEEDZONE driver and averaged 350.6 yards. His distance, combined with his excellent putting in Detroit, helped him close the gap between himself and overnight leader Matthew Wolff on Sunday, beating the youngster by three shots.
"Anytime you get so close for a few times and you don't win, it obviously makes you think," DeChambeau said. "So you've got to realize I'm human, I make mistakes, we all make mistakes.
"I think that's the beauty of every player out here is that we are all human, and even though we may think a certain way, even though we may believe a certain thing, it doesn't always pan out that way and I think that's what makes the game of golf so unique and so cool.
"I did not know if I was going to win today, I had no idea, and I would have been okay either way. I would have still been going on and grinding and working as hard as I possibly can. But it is definitely validating and it's exciting to be able to win having a whole different body.
"This is a little emotional for me because I did do something a little different. I changed my body, changed my mindset in the game and I was able to accomplish a win while playing a completely different style of golf.
"And it's pretty amazing to see that and I hope it's an inspiration to a lot of people that if they set their mind to it, you can accomplish it. It just takes a lot of hard work, a lot of figuring out things that you may not know and understand yet.
"If you keep going down the line and you keep working on it, figuring stuff out, eventually you'll get a little bit better each and every day and hopefully that leads to something great in the end."
