DeChambeau's last 2 holes on Sunday were lit


Bryson DeChambeau appeared to be done on the par-5 17th hole Sunday at the John Deere Classic after he flared his drive in the right rough.

The 23-year-old trailed Patrick Rodgers by one shot and had an awkward 268-yard approach to the green. However, that's when DeChambeau pulled off the shot of the tournament, taking his fairway wood and smashing the ball onto the putting surface where he would two-putt for birdie.

At the 72nd hole, the former U.S. Amateur champion split the fairway, then hit a frozen rope right at the flag, leaving a 14-foot birdie attempt. DeChambeau stepped over the putt, and then brushed it home for a round of 65 and a share of the lead with Rodgers at 18-under.

For the clubhouse lead ... Absolutely electric.

Rodgers would play the last two holes in 1-over, and DeChambeau had his first career PGA Tour victory.
