MAMARONECK, N.Y. — It shouldn’t be a surprise that a championship that prizes a metronomic style of golf — fairway, green, rinse, repeat — should fall to golf’s most metronomic player, but the U.S. Open victory of Bryson DeChambeau illuminated the extent to which modern power golf, and the tools with which it is played, have neutered what was once the most formidable test in the game.

In adopting a scientific approach to every aspect of his game, DeChambeau expects his carefully (some might say laboriously) calculated input to deliver a predictable output, which is an awfully high happiness bar to set in a sport that is hostage to the vagaries of chance, bounce and weather. Such a mindset would seem to guarantee frustration, and frustration is the very stress fracture that the U.S. Open is designed to locate, from which it will then prise a man open until it exposes every other weakness he didn’t think he had.

How much money each golfer won at the U.S. Open at Winged Foot

  How much money each golfer won at the U.S. Open at Winged Foot Bulked-up mad scientist Bryson DeChambeau can now add "major champion" to his list of titles. DeChambeau was the lone player under par at the 120th U.S. Open, running away with his first major title at 6 under par thanks to a final-round 3-under 67 (the lone round under par on Sunday). Matthew Wolff finished second at even, followed by Louis Oosthuizen in third at 2 over, Harris English in fourth at 3 over and Xander Schauffele in fifth at 4 over. The win earned the 27-year-old the $2.25 million top prize, making him the 83rd player in PGA Tour history to break the $20 million mark for on-course earnings.

But that kind of U.S. Open is now a relic of a bygone era, one when courses were characters in the narrative and none evoked more fear than Winged Foot. Strategy is now dictated not by course architects but by player preference. The main peril DeChambeau faced at Winged Foot would come from a potential swing screw-up, not the USGA’s course set-up. Limit the former and the latter doesn’t matter. He did, and it didn’t.

Sunday’s final pairing was an intoxicating juxtaposition of style and temperament. Matthew Wolff carries himself with the cheery nonchalance of one blessed with youth, talent and good looks. His golf swing is all flailing limbs and shuffling feet, suggestive of a man trying to shake loose a wasp trapped in his pants. DeChambeau, on the other hand, has an almost endearing awkwardness to his personality, as though it too has been as carefully constructed as his swing. He squares up to the ball with all the fluidity of rigor mortis, as though waiting motionless for the wasp to exit his pants — to get crushed.

DeChambeau carves up US Open one divot-sized slice at a time

  DeChambeau carves up US Open one divot-sized slice at a time Golfers like to say they win when it’s their week, when a swing adjustment suddenly clicks or because they’re driving the ball and putting it just that little better than everyone else. Bryson DeChambeau has a different take: He thinks every week belongs to him. Over the course of four days, DeChambeau unnerved the folks who run the U.S. Open and carved up Winged Foot’s unyielding reputation one divot-sized slice at a time. By the end, he was the only player to beat par, which also happened to be enough to beat his closest pursuer, Matthew Wolff, by a whopping six shots.

Bryson DeChambeau won his first major in style, landing the US Open by six shots from Matthew Wolff after a final round of 67.

Before the round, Wolff warmed up with just his caddie on the practice range. DeChambeau marched in trailed by an army of hangers-on and sporting more technical firepower than the Marines had at Khe Sanh. He ripped a succession of tee shots with a force and trajectory that might have unnerved pilots approaching Westchester County Airport. He was on the range after dark Saturday night, and he brought the same intense rigor to every shot during Sunday’s final round. DeChambeau is all about power, not pace, and studies his little guidebook (emblazoned with B.A.D.) as carefully as a condemned man reads a last-minute communique from the governor.

But for all the mockery he is subjected to (some of it deserved), it bears noting that while there are plenty of golfers on the PGA Tour more talented than DeChambeau, there isn’t one who can be bothered to outwork him. That reality will one day be altered — by life, relationships, family, physical frailty — but for now, he is the most single-minded man in golf.

Paul Azinger: On-air 'steroids' remark about Bryson DeChambeau taken out of context

  Paul Azinger: On-air 'steroids' remark about Bryson DeChambeau taken out of context "Validation on steroids." NBC analyst Paul Azinger uttered those words on Sunday during the final round of the U.S. Open. It was surely meant as a compliment to Bryson DeChambeau, who was coming up the 18th fairway at the time, looking to put the finishing touches on a six-shot rout in the 120th rendition of the national championship. DeChambeau has been dogged by the steroid accusations. Putting on all that bulk and bragging about all those protein shakes will do it, it seems. But the insinuations are unfair nonetheless. Azinger explained to Golfweek by text message Sunday night that his words were taken out of context.

27-year-old Bryson DeChameau won the 2020 US Open following a brilliant final round. DeChameau reacts to his win , saying he was able to play his game .

He is also the most polarizing man in the game, which is an estimable achievement in the era of Patrick Reed. His occasional absence of self-awareness and hints of narcissism rankle fans. His contention that he is essentially reinventing the game doesn’t win popularity contests in the locker room, suggesting as it does that his peers aren’t smart enough to have done it themselves. But there’s truth there.

DeChambeau has reinvented the game, and his impact will only grow. He will prompt a reimagining of what constitutes a modern U.S. Open test. He will hasten a reckoning with untrammeled equipment advances. He will force a rethinking of PGA Tour marketing, which still cleaves to a vanilla presentation of players that doesn’t engage modern, fickle audiences. And he will revolutionize how future generations of aspiring Tour pros develop. He is, simply put, the most important player in golf. He was that even before he won at Winged Foot.

This was not the most thrilling of major championships, but then U.S. Opens are typically as repetitive as NASCAR races, as competitors try to dodge disasters and fans eagerly await a crash. Leaderboard charges seldom occur, at least not in an upward direction. This is a tournament in which standing still has long been celebrated as advancement, but what we witnessed from DeChambeau at Winged Foot represents real advancement, not all of which will or should sit easily with golf’s many constituencies.

He didn’t punish me, but explained that cheating makes people feel helpless. Someone wishes a calm and quiet life; others imagine their life as a never-ending adventure. The majority dream of something concrete: a villa in some warm place, an account in a Swiss bank, a splendid car…

Let it be the final indignity of the COVID era that the man who most animates golf fans claimed his seminal victory in front of a smattering of volunteers and officials, and had to celebrate via video call with his parents.

Just another way in which this U.S. Open — and this U.S. Open champion — is quite unlike the 119 that preceded it.
