Bryson DeChambeau already had a PGA Tour title to his name prior to this week, but the American youngster insists his win at the Memorial Tournament proves he deserves to be on the PGA Tour.

Adding to his 2017 John Deere Classic title, DeChambeau overcame Byeong Hun An and Kyle Stanley over two holes of a play-off at Muirfield Village Golf Club and will now move to fourth in the FedExCup standings.

 

And with that the 24-year-old now believes he can start to walk-the-walk of a top tier golfer.

“It’s taken me a couple of years to get to this calibre and I was fortunate enough to come out victorious on Jack’s course,” he told a post-tournament press conference.

“This is most important win of my entire career because it happened here at Jack’s course and also it is also kind of validity of me being out here on Tour.

“And me being out here on the Tour and being able to get the job done, I know I can do it consistently,” he finished.

DeChambeau won the US Amateur title in 2015; he was low amateur at the 2016 Masters; he currently resides in the world-number-39 spot. But it has taken him until now to feel ratified as a PGA Tour member.

With that belief DeChambeau can now strive to fulfil the potential he’s held since his young amateur days and compete with the biggest names in the game, starting with the US Open in less than two weeks time.
