No doubt....what an unbelievable finish.....gotta give a lot of props to Collin Morikawa too....just great, great stuff out of both......and that eagle by Frenchie on 18 was pretty clutch too

Damn...........those guys make it look sooooooo easy....when it is not!!

Great finish. I guess when you’re gonna have a birdie fest ( which I loathe) that’s the way to make it exciting. I guess Wolff just made better calculations than Bryson..lol.

Kid has serious game. There’s a lot of “next big things” out there. He may be leading the pack even with that crazy swing.

Crazy backswing, but love watching it.  Hits the shit out of the ball too.  Major distance

@grubby98 We've seen that swing before--Furyk, Moore, just to name a couple.  He has speed to boot though.

This swing is crazier, faster and more powerful than Furyk’s. He destroys that ball.

Yep. 

(slightly off topic) Ballstriking is the key to this game; always has been.  Dude had total strokes gained for the week= 13.991.  13.315 of those came from tee to green.

3rd start as a pro. For comparison, Tiger won in his 5th start as a pro. And Tiger had a lot more starts on the PGA Tour and in majors than Wolff has. That is crazy. Anytime you're doing things that Tiger hasn't done, I mean...

His backswing is a bit weird but his pre-swing knee dip waggle is even more weird. You can't argue with success, though, so good for him!

Great way to win with an eagle on the 72nd hole.

YES! He deserves ALL the accolades. I can't help but think, though, that DeChambeau really lost the tournament in the third round. We'll never know. Best, -Marv

Is it me or is this happening more frequently this year?  Wolff wins his third start.  Last week, the winner got in as the last alternate.  Did someone win a Monday qualifier and win recently too?

There's some truth in this.  Everyone was making birdies on Saturday except him.

Superficially, maybe. But imho once you start deconstructing it his swing is very different.

 

Also, good article on him from college.

He’ll fall behind soon enough. 🙂
