Bryson DeChambeau won the DAP Championship, on the Web.com Tour, in a four-way play-off, to secure his PGA Tour card for next season.
Bryson finished the DAP Championship tiied at the top of the leaderboard with Andres Gonzales, Julian Etulain and Nicholas Lindheim, all at -7 under par for the tournament.
Nicholas and Julien were eliminated at the first extra hole, while Bryson carded a par second time around against a bogey from Andres.
Bryson faced a tricky four-foot putt to win, but held his nerve and dropped it right in the middle of the cup;
“Oh my gosh, it’s amazing. It’s beyond my wildest dreams. I’m just so ecstatic about today.”
“All these guys out here could play on the PGA TOUR no problem.”
“It’s just about getting it done, staying patient, executing shots, and that’s luckily what I was able to do this week.”
“So what’s funny is right when I got behind it, I looked at it, and I knew the read, I knew how much it was going to break.”
“It was an inch outside the hole, and I sat it down and I was really calm. It was really weird, a calmness came over me, and it was just about executing.”
“The same thing happened to me on 16 when I made that 12-footer. A calmness came over me, I said just execute, and I was able to execute. It went right in the middle of the hole and I said let’s go.”
“I wasn’t going to use my driver after Tuesday and tried a new driver head and it started to perform well.”
“For me, it was nice knowing that my ball-striking was incredible and had been all week, and all I had to do was make a couple putts and I was going to be right there.”
Andres has to believe in what he is doing;
“It’s very unorthodox, but I think the name of the game out here is if you believe in what you’re doing, you’ve gotta keep believing in that.”
“You have to think that what you’re doing is the right way to do it, and it’s amazing how far that can take you, self-belief out here.”
“If you don’t have self-belief in this game, you might as well hang ‘em up.”
