Bryson DeChambeau sealed his fifth career PGA Tour title and the fourth of 2018 with a narrow one-stroke victory at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

DeChambeau, 25, found himself one stroke behind defending champion Patrick Cantlay on the par-5 15th but raced to the front with a stunning 56-foot eagle putt from just off the back edge of the green...

 

 

Cantlay then bogeyed the 16th before making a birdie at the 18th to move back to within a stroke of DeChambeau, but pars at 17 and 18 were enough for the American to card a 66 and 21-under total, becoming the first player in 2018 to win four times on Tour.

"I was just coming out here to try to kick the rust off, and was able to play some great golf," said DeChambeau. 


 

DeChambeau was using a full bag of COBRA Golf equipment, including Bridgestone golf ball. 

It marked the first win for the new COBRA KING F9 SPEEDBACK driver, which we tested out last week. Watch our review here. It was also the first week DeChambeau put the driver in play. 

DeChambeau performed admirably from tee to green, ranking tied fourth in both driving accuracy (79%) and greens in regulation (83%). He also unsurprisingly ranked first in strokes-gained total (13.9).

Rickie Fowler also put a new KING F9 SPEEDBACK driver and fairway woods in the bag en route to the lowest final-round score of his career (63), finishing tied fourth.
