The Crushers GC captain’s 63 on Sunday propelled him to a one-stroke victory at LIV Golf Chicago, which was his second win in the last three events. In his last win, DeChambeau shot a 58 in West Virginia to run away with the LIV Golf Greenbrier title.

DeChambeau ended up beating teammate Anirban Lahiri by one stroke when Lahiri missed a par putt on the 18th hole that would’ve forced a playoff.

“To be honest with you, I was actually sad,” said DeChambeau after the tournament ended. “I really wanted him to make that so we could go battle it off in a playoff and finish it off the right way. That was the first emotion that I had.

“Secondly, you’ve got people coming over and congratulating you, and it’s just like, ‘Oh, I really didn’t feel like I won. This isn’t the normal feeling I usually have when you win a tournament.’ It was definitely a huge mix of emotions.”

Despite not feeling like he won, it was a big day for DeChambeau. Not only did he pocket $4 million for the win, but he moved up to third in the season-long points standings, which contains a cash bonus if he can finish third or better after LIV Golf Jeddah, which is the final individual player tournament of the season.

Cameron Smith is still in the driver’s seat, leading the standings by eight points over Talor Gooch. But Smith, the defending champion of this event, had an uncharacteristic 40th-place finish, earning no points for the event. Gooch has 162 points to Smith’s 170 after Gooch placed seventh this week. DeChambeau has 146 points, 25 more than Patrick Reed, who finished 21st.

In more good news for DeChambeau—and a consolation prize for Lahiri—the Crushers GC team won the team competition, so each player earned a $750,000 bonus. The team—comprised of DeChambeau, Lahiri, Paul Casey, and Charles Howell III—are in second place in the team standings behind the 4 Aces, captained by Dustin Johnson. After the Jeddah event, the LIV Golf team championship will take place in Doral in Miami in late October.

“I think all four of us would agree that you’re trying to win the tournament outright first,” said Lahiri, who now has three runner-up finishes in 2023. “At least that’s how I look at it. Anyone else who says otherwise is lying. But the team win was something that we all knew we needed to pull off, and we knew we should pull off.”

Marc Leishman tied with Lahiri at -12, while Sebastian Munoz—who led by three strokes going into play Sunday—wound up fourth after shooting +2 on the day.

Peter Uihlein was fifth, Henrik Stenson finished sixth, Gooch placed seventh, and Abraham Ancer was eighth. Rounding out the top 10 were Richard Bland in ninth and Dustin Johnson in 10th.
