AmericaBryson DeChambeau broke the match from the last 6 round hole on 8/8, so he missed the opportunity to win and receive a great reward at WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational of the PGA Tour.

The tournament took place at TPC Southwind, par70 in Memphis, Tennessee, closing the curtain on 8/8.

After 54 holes, DeChambeau finished T2 with a score of -16, two strokes from Harris English at the top of the table. On the closing day, he and English started the last game, from hole 1. Both led after five holes.

On the par4 6th hole, 445 yards long, DeChambeau hit the net fence line, so he hit a backup. The original ball was found but it was not clear in or out of bounds (OB), so the American golfer invited referee Ken Tackett to handle it. Due to the ambiguous position, Tackett and his colleagues had to stretch the rope to determine the ball in the field.

If it’s OB, DeChambeau must take a penalty stroke, then drop the ball next to the fence so it doesn’t get caught on the second shot but is no closer to the pennant than it was in the original position. But the ball is still in play, so the American golfer who is seventh in the world (OWGR table) enters a new situation – continues from the existing position.

If so, he must stand on the asphalt for golf carts (cart path). However, rule 16.1(b) of the golf rules classifies the cart path as “fixed obstructions and abnormal course conditions”. Therefore, DeChambeau actively asked to drop the ball elsewhere without penalty. Referee Tackett agreed, so he took a new position in the rough area opposite the fence.

However, DeChambeau went only 20 meters on the second shot because the ball caught in the tree in front of him. The former US Open major champion added a new shot to the green and closed the bogey after two putts.

It was the second bogey from the start. If you combine it with three birdies after six holes, DeChambeau is on round -1. This achievement remained stationary when he finished the 10th hole.

Then he “collapsed” – triple bogey on the 11th par3 hole, 162 yards long. Aiming at the oasis-shaped green, English shot into the lake due to lack of force. DeChambeau hit later, on the green but the ball still went into the water hazard after a long bounce.

Get a stick penalty, DeChambeau replay, this time from 92 yards but to bunker before the green. He finished on the second putt – the sixth from the hole, including the penalty, while English closed a double bogey.

From then to the end of the round, DeChambeau added two bogeys, and English added three more. At the end of the tournament, DeChambeau ranked T8 with a score of -12, winning $ 272,500. English alone finished fourth (point -15), receiving 515,000 USD.

The championship belonged to Abraham Ancer, after the playoffs with Hideki Matsuyama and Sam Burns. All three reached -16 after 72 standard holes. Ancer won by birdie on the second extra hole in a three-way match to determine the final title.

Before WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, Ancer represented Mexican golf and returned to T14 in Tokyo 2020 on August 1. That time there was no bonus, but yesterday, he received 1.82 million USD. Matsuyama did not win a medal when his hometown hosted the last Olympics. And after the latest competition with Ancer on the PGA Tour, Matsuyama received $917,500.
