Bryson Dechambeau: 2018 Memorial Tournament Winner

Memorial Recap: Bryson DeChambeau Wins The Memorial Tournament

You have to work hard to achieve your goals and you can never give up. Those are the lessons we can learn from our 2018 Memorial Tournament winner, Bryson DeChambeau. He had a chance to win the Memorial on the last hole of his final round but scored a bogey that forced a playoff with two other golfers.

Bryson didn’t give up even though he wasn’t playing his best. He worked hard and was able to win the Tournament on the second playoff hole. After missing the 18th green his first two tries on Sunday, Bryson got it right the third time, hitting his 8-iron to 12 feet and sinking the birdie putt for his second PGA TOUR victory.

When the putt dropped, Bryson excitedly pumped both arms in the arm in celebration.

“To be able to win on Jack's course is pretty special,” Bryson said after the playoff. “I know coming here a couple years ago I wanted to do it then – my game wasn't near good enough to win – so it's taken a couple years for me to get to that caliber and I was fortunate enough to be able to come out victorious here at Jack's course, which, again, I'll say it time and time again, this is probably the most important win I think of my entire career, because of the fact that it happened here at Jack's course and also because it's kind of validity to me being out here on TOUR as well, me being able to get the job done. I know I can do it consistently.”

Bryson beat one of the best fields on the PGA TOUR to claim the Memorial Tournament trophy and a special congratulations handshake from Jack Nicklaus. The leaderboard featured some of the top names in golf, including: Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler, Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson. Not to mention Tiger Woods, who was in the hunt all four rounds of the Tournament.
