DeChambeau wins Dell Technologies Championship

Sep 04, 2018: Bryson DeChambeau has secured the No. 1 seed in the FedExCup through to the TOUR Championship after claiming the Dell Technologies Championship at TPC Boston.

After a convincing victory at THE NORTHERN TRUST to open the four-event Playoffs stretch DeChambeau backed it up with another dominant display, prevailing by two shots over Justin Rose.

The win assures the 25-year-old the top seed in the FedExCup not only at next week’s BMW Championship at Aronimink in Philadelphia, but through to the season finale TOUR Championship in Atlanta.

The top five players at East Lake control their own destiny knowing a win secures the FedExCup.

DeChambeau will also have the best chance to claim the season long championship without victory.

After the points reset he would have a reasonable chance to win the FedExCup with a top-6 finish in Atlanta and mathematically has a chance finishing as low as T29 in the 30-man field.

“I’ve still got to focus on doing the absolute best I can each and every week. I can’t get caught up in the fact that I’m No. 1,” DeChambeau said.

“If a guy wins the first three Playoff events, if that was ever to happen, you’re still not guaranteed that you’re going to win the FedExCup. So no matter what there’s always a job to do.

“I can’t get caught up in the fact that I won the past two weeks. Everybody starts at even par next week. We’re all fresh. And there’s going to be a winner on Sunday. So it could be anybody out of the 70 that are there. I’ve just got to play better than all of them.”

While his seeding won’t change next week, DeChambeau still has goals he’s chasing.

He joined Vijay Singh (2008) as the only player to win the opening two Playoff events in the history of the FedExCup and now has a chance to set more record marks.

No one has ever won more than two of the four Playoff events in one season, although there has now been a multiple winner in eight of the 12 seasons.

DeChambeau is also expected to join the U.S. Ryder Cup team as a captain’s pick this week.
