Golfer Bryson DeChambeau Takes Home U.S. Open Trophy: ‘Thankful’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Bryson DeChambeau arrived to the U.S. Open with hopes that he would play consistent golf throughout the whole tournament.

DeChambeau left the U.S. Open with the trophy four years after winning his last major championship.

Per Sports Spectrum, “DeChambeau squeaked out a thrilling victory at this year’s U.S. Open in Pinehurst, North Carolina; his four-day score of 6-under-par was one stroke better than Rory McIlroy’s. DeChambeau began Sunday’s final round with a three-stroke lead, briefly lost it to McIlroy, then inched ahead when McIlroy bogeyed the 18th hole.”

After his historic win, DeChambeau described his thoughts of winning, “Thankful. Just thankful. Thankful that I was a part of it. Thankful that I accomplished something I’ve always wanted to accomplish as a kid. Gratitude and thanks.”

In 2022, DeChambeau took a hiatus from the game of golf to get himself healthy from a lingering wrist injury which later required surgery.

During that time, DeChambeau was able to focus on himself and his relationship with the Lord.

“I’ve learned so much about me as a person and my faith and whatnot through golf having been stripped away from me,” DeChambeau told USA Today. “It’s been a difficult time for me the past seven months not being able to play golf the way I really want to. It still is a little tough every once in a while in the hand to hit golf balls, but for the most part I can’t tell you how excited I am to be back out here.”

“There’s more to life than golf,” he continued. “It’s been definitely eye-opening for me to have a close relationship with the Lord and just more importantly being happy with myself, too, and more importantly getting closer to Him.

“For me, that’s something that’s changed in my life that I’m very, very happy with, and I’m going to continue to fight, continue to be my absolute best out here on the golf course and hopefully inspire some kids along the way and do my due diligence like He wants me to,” DeChambeau concluded.
