Rory McIlroy's nightmare, Bryson DeChambeau's triumph. The Arab Super League celebrates the feat of the Californian at the US Open who, in Pinehurst, North Carolina, repeats the feat in the Major he already owned in 2020. The 30-year-old from Modesto, leader at the end of the third round, won with a score of 274 (67 69 67 71, -6) shots and took advantage of the Northern Irishman's final collapse.

McIlroy, 2nd with 275 (65 72 69 69, -5), threw the victory away. After making five birdies (with one bogey) in the first 14 holes, he stumbled to three bogeys in the last four. He continues the major fast of the world number 2, who hasn't won one since 2014.

DeChambeau, results

DeChambeau rejoices, now tenth in the world ranking, among the big names of LIV Golf. "I wanted this trophy to dedicate it to my father Jon, who died in 2022 from diabetes. In recent years I have realized that there is much more to life than golf", said the American, moved, at the end of the tournament .

No interviews, however, for McIlroy. Too bitter to speak, he quickly left Pinehurst in his car.
In his 31st appearance, DeChambeau became the 89th player to win more than one Major, and the 23rd to win the US Open multiple times.

The victory earned him 4,300,000 dollars for a total prize pool of 21,500,000, the highest in the history of the competition. In 3rd position with 276 (-4), two other Americans: Patrick Cantlay and Tony Finau. Fifth place with 277 (-3), however, for the Frenchman Matthieu Pavon.

Not only did he not win, but he didn't even come close. The news is that Scottie Scheffler, dominator of men's golf and scoring in five of the last nine tournaments played, this time did not go beyond 41st place with 288 (+8).

Behind him, Francesco Molinari. The Turin native, 64th with 293 (+13), did not qualify for the Olympics. In Paris, from 1 to 4 August, Matteo Manassero and Guido Migliozzi will defend the Italian colors in the men's individual competition.
