Bryson DeChambeau came from eight shots behind to win LIV Golf Chicago and capture his second victory on the breakaway tour. 

DeChambeau tore round Rich Harvest Farms on Sunday, carding a final round of 8-under 63. 


It meant the American finished on 13-under after 54 holes, one clear of his Crushers team mate Anirban Lahiri and Marc Leishman. 

India's Lahiri had the opportunity to take the tournament to a playoff if he just secured a par on his final hole. 

He found the green in two strokes at the relatively straightforward par-4 18th but left his birdie putt well short. 

Lahiri had his par putt read correctly but just pulled it a hair and it missed the cup low, prompting wild scenes for DeChambeau. 

DeChambeau said: "I wanted to be in a playoff with Ban. He's worked his butt off all year, and look, I couldn't be happier that I won, but I feel so bad for Ban. I wanted to go into a playoff and battle it out with my brother.

"I love him to death. He's a grinder. He had this one, but I just luckily snuck in there and took it down today."

This was DeChambeau's second LIV Golf victory in the 2023 campaign. 

His first came after he fired an historic 58 at the Greenbrier's Old White course in August. 

Off the back of that win, there were calls for DeChambeau to be included in Team USA's Ryder Cup team. 

But instead, captain Zach Johnson decided against it and remarkably didn't even give the 2020 U.S. Open champion a phone call.

DeChambeau added: 

"I would say the most consistently good golf of my life. I don't know if it's the top-notch but definitely when I shot 58 that was probably the best golf I've ever played, and winning the U.S. Open obviously is the ultimate thing. I played the best golf there, too. But I can definitely tell you this little stretch has been pretty sweet for me"

Brooks Koepka will be the only LIV player involved in next week's contest in Italy. 

Elsewhere, Sebastion Munoz finished fourth. There were top-10 finishes for Henrik Stenson, Richard Bland, Talor Gooch and Dustin Johnson

Unsurprisingly, DeChambeau's Crushers scooped the team win on 33-under. 

Sergio Garcia's Fireballs finished second on 30-under. Johnson's 4Aces finished third on 25-under.

Final leaderboard:

  • B. DeChambeau -13
  • M. Leishman, A. Lahiri -12
  • S. Munoz -11
  • P. Uihlein, H. Stenson, T. Gooch, A. Ancer -10
