2023 LIV Golf Greenbrier: DeChambeau fires a historic 58 to win

Bryson DeChambeau Fires a Historic 58 to Win LIV Golf Greenbrier Event

Bryson DeChambeau came into Sunday’s final round of the 2023 LIV Golf Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, down one stroke. But by time he reached the 18th hole, it was only DeChambeau against history.

Already having a five-stroke lead on his nearest challenger, DeChambeau faced a 40-foot putt for birdie. If he sank it on the par-3 final hole, he would card just the seventh 58 in professional golf history.

“I hit a 40-footer to start off every single day in practice, and I know exactly what a 40-footer feels like,” DeChambeau explained. “So, I just made that feeling, and I stroked it, and it was perfectly on line. Three-fourths of the way there I’m like, oh, my gosh, this isn’t going to go in, is it?”

It did go in, and the 29-year-old not only pocketed $4 million to win the event, but his name joined just six other golfers in shooting a 58. It’s the first round under 60 in LIV Golf history, and the only 58 on the PGA Tour came from Jim Furyk at the 2016 Travelers Championship.

“Probably the greatest moment in my golf career,” DeChambeau said. After going 2-under par on Friday, he shot a 61 on Saturday before besting that by three strokes in the final round.

“I had something special going on today, and I just felt super comfortable over tee shots and was able to play the course the way it was designed,” DeChambeau said of the historic West Virginia resort course.

It was the 2020 U.S. Open winner’s first win of any sort since the 2021 Arnold Palmer Invitational, which was about 2.5 years ago. After struggling in LIV over his first year and a half with the new circuit, DeChambeau has finished no worse than 13th in his last five events and now sits fifth in the overall standings.

Mito Pereira shot a 63 on Sunday but had to settle for second place at -17, six shots behind DeChambeau. Richard Bland was third, recording his second straight top-10 finish, along with David Puig and Matthew Wolff, who were co-leaders going into Sunday.

Harold Varner III was sixth, and there was a five-way tie for seventh among points leader Talor Gooch, Brendan Steele, Branden Grace, Carlos Ortiz, and Dean Burmester.

Despite DeChambeau’s win, his Crushers GC team came in second behind Torque GC, consisting of Pereira, Puig, Joaquin Niemann, and Sebastian Munoz. It was Torque’s fourth team victory of 2023, and due to the 4 Aces’ last-place finish, they are just seven points behind last year’s champs in the team standings.

With four events left in the 2023 LIV Golf schedule, the tour heads to New Jersey next week for LIV Golf Bedminster. After London last month, this is the second course that the circuit makes a repeat visit to after competing there last September. Henrik Stenson, who was 27th at The Greenbrier, is the defending champion.
