Bryson had this to say about his victory, especially his great putting;
“I can’t even describe it right now. Just to be able to win his event, it’s such an honor.”
“He’s the greatest to play, and to be able to do that, I’m speechless.”
“It’s an honor, I can’t believe I did it today. I knew I was struggling with my ball-striking all week.”
“I was putting great, wedging it great around the greens and was fortunate enough to somehow get it back into play and get up and down pretty much almost every hole.”
Patrick Cantlay finished in fourth spot at -14 under, a last round -1 under 71 not good enough. Peter Uihlein, -6 under 66 was alone in fifth place at -13 under.
