Bryson DeChambeau kept par for only two holes, but at the end of the match still reached par in the first round of Northern Trust on August 19.

In the opening leg, DeChambeau hit 71 strokes – even par. He went from the top of the course, holding par on holes 4 and 10, scoring a total of nine birdies. But for the whole round, this number compensates for two double bogeys and five bogeys, including the first and last stages. At the end of the match, the number six golfer in the world did not receive interviews from the media.

After 18 holes of Northern Trust, he entered the T52 group, eight strokes behind Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm at the top of the table. In his journey to the top, Thomas also had nine birdies like DeChambeau but with a bogey while Rahm scored eight birdies and held a 10-hole par.

But with yesterday’s fluctuating form, DeChambeau became the fourth player to hold a par two holes or less but still return to par on the court, since 1983 – the year the PGA Tour began to record points for each “stage”.

The three members before DeChambeau in this statistical category include Jarrod Lyle, Kevin Johnson and Kaname Yokoo. Lyle scored two pars, 69 strokes on par71 in 2011. A year earlier, Johnson had two pars but 66 strokes on par72. Yokoo, with a single par, got a -4 round on par 72 two decades ago.

Northern Trust, taking place at Liberty National par71, opened on August 19, opening a series of three playoffs to find the owner of the FedEx Cup and $15 million on the PGA Tour 2020-2021. In this season-long race, DeChambeau finished seventh when entering Liberty National, mainly thanks to points from the major US Open championship in September 2020 and the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March this year. American golfer born in 1993 won eight PGA Tour titles, the farthest shot this season – 321.5 yards on average. He was admitted to the US team to attend Tokyo 2020 but was eliminated at the last minute due to Covid-19 infection.

More than 10 days after the health incident, DeChambeau rematched at WGC- FedEx St. Jude Invitational, T2 at -16 and two strokes off the top of the table after 54 holes. But in the last round, he broke the match from hole 6, so he finished T8 (point -12).
