Bryson DeChambeau etched his name into the history books at the LIV Golf Greenbrier with a record-breaking round of golf that left spectators in awe. The momentous occasion was marked by a 12-under 58, the lowest round ever recorded in the LIV Golf Championship and a rare feat in the elite professional men's golf circuit.
Standing over a daunting 40-foot putt at the 18th hole, DeChambeau understood the magnitude of the moment and the opportunity to achieve something extraordinary. Aware that two putts would secure a sub-60 score, he remained focused on one goal – avoiding a potential three-foot putt. With nerves of steel, DeChambeau drained the enormous putt for a birdie, igniting an exuberant celebration and etching his name in golf history.
The remarkable 58 not only propelled DeChambeau to his first individual victory at LIV Golf, but he also regarded it as the pinnacle of his career, which already boasts 11 professional wins, including one major championship.
Reflecting on his achievement, an elated DeChambeau expressed, "It's beyond words. I’ve been working so hard for a long time, and I knew something special was going to come at some point. I just didn’t know when.”
DeChambeau's record-breaking feat came on the heels of an exceptional performance the previous day when he shot a 61, matching the previous LIV Golf record low. Rather than succumb to the pressure of replicating such a remarkable round, DeChambeau used the momentum to his advantage, powering through the back-nine with six birdies in his first seven holes.
While DeChambeau stole the spotlight with his historic round, credit must also be given to Mito Pereira of Torque GC, who displayed tenacity throughout the tournament. Pereira finished six strokes behind DeChambeau but gave an impressive performance, securing his team's fourth victory of the season.
As the LIV Golf Greenbrier tournament concluded amid rain-soaked grounds at The Old White Course, spectators were treated to an unforgettable display from one of golf's stars. Bryson DeChambeau's record-breaking achievement will undoubtedly be remembered as a pivotal moment in LIV Golf’s history.
