Well, it's now un-officially a 1-man tournament.

Yup - Bryson going to need an collapse to not win this.

Not a DeChambeau fan but if he pars out it has to go down as one of the greatest final rounds ever in a major. No one under par all day and only two guys Even....and he’s -3. That’s incredible.

I think we only say that because he’s in first place. There are many examples of someone out of the mix going low on the final day and they get hardly any recognition.

Top 100 sure. Top ten? No.

I wonder why we don’t hear redan or tabletop greens. Well tabletop is a stretch. 

Wow, this why I don’t watch golf on tv much anymore.

Unreal golf by DeChambeau.  Even crazier to me than his single length irons is that he plays graphite shaft irons (not sure I know of another tour player that does) and the grips look like they’re the size of those jumbo putter grips... just, a crazy equipment setup

BAD is not the longest guy out there this week. I think maybe his distance is overstated in that he’s doing everything well? And not getting as much credit for that.

I saw a tweet maybe McIlroy should hit the weight room. Lol. He did and people gave him grief for doing so.

Terrific win by the scientist! What an exciting day for golf. Has to be one of the best final day major performances ever, definitely top 5.

This guy has everything,  the power, the touch and science all the way. Here's to our major champion Bryson Dechambeau!

I disagree. A 67 in these conditions when no one else could even break 70? It's like the equivalent to a 61 compared to Johnny Miller's 63 at Oakmont. Like I said, I'm not a fan of the guy, but I've got to give him props. That was an incredible round today. Top 10, in my opinion.

What conditions? Perfect weather? The course is naturally tough and the greens are nasty. The weather for this US Open was not that significant. I think you are over estimating the conditions. Was his play today impressive, kind-of. He hit only 61% of GIR. Particularly low for a round under par at a US Open. His strokes gained putting was about 3 strokes over the field. Basically, his putter got hot. When you consider that Johnny Millers 63 at Oakmont was a ball striking spectacle, I hardly think they are comparable.

I agree with you. I'm sure sometime very soon, we will find out where Bryson's round ranked in terms of all time great final round major performances (strokes gained vs. the field). But wherever it falls, in terms of raw numbers will be understated. 

This wasn't some guy posting a great round early to backdoor a great finish (think Tommy Fleetwood at Shinnecock in 2018). This was a guy who won the tournament, playing in the last group of the day, which is immeasurably more difficult. I think this round will deservedly be remembered as one of the all-time greats.

Even gaining 3 strokes on the field with putting still puts him at tied with the best players other than him, that being the 3 players at E on the day. Basically you are saying that putting shouldn't matter and ball striking is king. Statistically speaking we know it is more important, but what the big golfer did today was special, and I don't think it is fair to take that away from him because you don't like the way he accomplished it.

Sorry, should have prefaced it as final round performances "by a champion." That's what I was referring to. But conditions were tough as in course conditions, not so much weather, although breeze and cool weather added to those tough course conditions. But NOT ONE player broke par today (only two shot 70) except one who shot a 67--BDC. To me that's pretty damn good and one of the best final rounds by a champion. Even Paul Azinger said as much. To shoot a 67 on that course in the heat of the battle like that was one of the best final rounds by a champion I've ever seen.

Impressed with his consistency through the tourney and especially today.  Was it a great round - yes, one of the greatest ever don’t see it.  To be honest, I would have rather #18 to have come down to what we saw with the Rahm-Johnson battle a few weeks back.  One needed to make the putt to force the playoff.

Yeah, I agree.  I may be partial because I'm not a fan of his, and yes, I know everyone else played the same course in the same condition but I just didn't feel it wasn't one of the most phenomenal rounds ever.  It was very anti-climactic at the end which somewhat also turned me off to it.

Great round, without fans adding nerves to your game I cannot say best round. 
 

He played extremely well and deserves the accolades. Well done. Fans still change the dynamic.

    • Day 316 Worked on figuring out a feel/thought to take on course for what I’m working on lately. Came to “right hand, right heel” as the mantra. “Right hand” part to not move my right hand into a strong grip during takeaway. “Right heel” part to get my weight pressure into the inside of my right heel, which means I’ve done a good turn. Hit about 30 balls, using this thought. 
    • Bought a new set of G410’s today.  Hit them at the range.  Loved them.  Bought the G410 driver too.  That thing was awesome.  Had to order the sand wedge and lob wedge today.  2-3 month wait time.  Getting the g410 3 hybrid next.   
    • This is the first year we have missed both Garland and Treetop in the last 5 years.   I really didn't miss Treetops except the par 3 but I do miss Garland.    I'm glad you were able to enjoy them.
    • Would you happen to know when these Mac LITE irons were made?   
    • Had a group of college friends together for a little 2 on 2 friendly competition. We all made bogey on 1. On 2 there is a little pond short left of the green. My partner hit into the hazard. Ball on the edge of the water. He goes in after it, where the water has receded and left a muddy edge. Dude goes into the mud waist deep. Shoe came off. Fell on his face. Literally worried that he was not going to get out. It’s 50 degrees and dude is covered in mud, wet. Needless to say I had to drive him back up to his car and that was the end of his day.    so we played individual for the day. On 15 holes I was 4 over par. On the other 3 holes, thanks to a pair of doubles and a triple I was 7 over. 11 over for the round is one of the first times I failed to break 80 for a round in a while. Overall for the day I didn’t play bad but those 3 holes were just ugly. 6. I hit a weak drive right on a hill, awkward lie. Couldn’t get a good stance. Chunk my shot. My 3rd was from 75 and I left that short. Chip on for 4 and 2 putts for a double 6. 13. 8 iron deep left. Chip on and 3 putt for a double 14. my 6 iron off the tee layup I chunk into the water. Haven’t hit a ball off the tee out of play all season here. Drop from 230 out up hill. Hit 3 wood and lucky to not be OB left. Barely in play and not a good stance with tree in my backswing. Leave that short of the green. Chip that on and 2 putt for a 7.  Did drive one onto the fringe at 8 today and had a putt at eagle on the hole for 1st time all year so managed an easy birdie there. Eagle lipped out. Would have been a nice boost considering the double at 6 and then 3 putt bogey at 7. Hit 10 GIR which is about where I would normally be any given day. Few more putts than normal but didn’t putt awful. If I could just have those 3 holes back!
