Bryson DeChambeau Memorial Stats, WITB and Highlights

Jack Nicklaus very famously has an instruction book entitled "Golf My Way" and how fitting it was that a man who does it all his own way won The Memorial in dramatic fashion.

Bryson DeChambeau  may have only shot 71 in the final round at Muirfield Village but the playoff win over a charging Kyle Stanley and Ben An was dramatic, if a little protracted, stuff.
With only two weeks to go before the US Open all the major names were getting in tune. Tiger contended but his short putting wouldn't comply while  Rory, DJ, Phil, Rickie, Rose and JT all finished in the top 15.
But is  24-year-old DeChambeau who bagged his second PGA Tour win after the 2017 John Deere and brings his 2018 run to six top 10's and five top 5's, including a solo 2nd at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and this latest win.

How did he do it?

DeChambeau hit just five of 14 fairways in his final round and 35 total for the week with his Cobra King LTD Pro driver but averaged 306.3 yards, fourth longest in the field.  The Californian hit 52 fairways over the four rounds (T12 in the field) with his Cobra King One Length irons and averaged 27.8 putts per round (T11 in the putting stats) using a SIK tour prototype putter.  Indeed it was the flatstick that made the difference with a final round total of 1.833 putts per Green In Reg and 0.311 Strokes Gained: Putting amassing a total of 21 birdies against just four bogeys and one double on a very tricky course.

Thorbjorn Olesen Italian Open Stats, WITB and Highlights

On his day Thorbjorn Olesen  is one of the best players in the world and so it proved at the big money Italian Open where the Dane carded a super Sunday 64 to pip home hero Fran Molinari by a shot and claim his fifth European Tour victory.
With host venue Gardagolf in Brescia playing "gettable" by Tour standards the field was bunched throughout and starting just one shot back of third round leader Lee Slattery it took a seven birdie surge from the Dane to get the job done.
Now 28 years old, Thor's class on the course has been hampered by injury but he now finds himself sixth in the Race To Dubai and fifth in the Ryder Cup rankings after the biggest win of his career.

Stats: How Did He Do It?

Olesen hit just 26 fairways for the week (T71 in the field) and averaged 277.3 yards with his  TaylorMade 2016 M1 driver. However he hit 55 fairways with his TaylorMade PSi irons (T21 in the stat) and needed just 26.3 putts per round using a Scotty Cameron Newport 2 Timeless GSS putter to accumulate a total of 22 under, going -7, -5, -10 cumulatively on the par 3's, 4's, 5's.
