DeChambeau shot a 7 under 65 at Detroit Golf Club, birdieing four of the first seven holes and finishing with three straight. He finished on a career-best 23 under 265.
Matthew Wolff (71) was second. He started the day with a three-shot lead and injured his chances with five bogeys during his first 10 holes. Kevin Kisner (66) finished another stroke back.
DeChambeau removed all doubts with a strong finish.
He made a 30-foot birdie putt at No. 1
DeChambeau entered the week with six straight top-eight finishes and was the only player to top 10 in the first three events after a coronavirus reboot. He won the first time since Shriners Children’s Hospital opens in November 2018.
DeChambeau has dramatically changed his body, added 40 kilos of mass and utilized the time he had to work with his physique during the COVID-19 pandemic.
His power was on full display in Motor City with units that routinely went about 350 feet.
DeChambeau’s drive on the 621-yard, par-5 fourth went to the left and landed in greenside roughly on an adjacent hole. He cleared trees and landed just outside the green, sent his way 276 feet and biked from 37 feet.
When his body and power become a fix for those who follow golf, more eyes are on him and it disturbed him in the third round.
On Saturday, DeChambeau had a tested exchange with a TV cameraman after a bogey on the sixth hole. After the round, he brushed it against a potential vulnerability and damaged someone’s image.
