Bryson DeChambeau sets tournament record score, wins Omega Dubai Desert Classic

Bryson DeChambeau shot a tournament record 24-under 264 to win the Omega Dubai Desert Classic by seven strokes this weekend at Emirates Golf Club. DeChambeau, who shot an 8-under 64 during Sunday’s final round, has now won four times in his last nine starts.

Ranked No. 5 in the world, DeChambeau had shot a pair of 6-under 66’s and a 4-under 68 before Sunday’s final round. Despite sitting at 16-under 200 through 54 holes, DeChambeau’s best golf in Dubai had yet to come. His final round score of 8-under 64 consisted of seven birdies, one eagle, and one bogey.

DeChambeau opened up his final round with three consecutive birdies before settling for par on the next six holes. Then, the 25-year-old DeChambeau finished with an eagle and birdie at the 10th and 11th holes following the turn for the back nine. However, his strong play was brought to a brief halt when he bogeyed at the 12th hole. But he quickly bounced back with a pair of back-to-back birdies at 13 and 14 before scoring his seventh and final birdie of the day at 17.

“I think it’s fantastic obviously,” DeChambeau said after his final round. “It’s great that anybody can tell you that you’ve done something good. I think it’s a little bit vindicating that I’m able to come out and have success like this on multiple tours. I’m very proud and happy and thankful as well.”

The previous tournament record had been set at last year’s event by Haotong Li, who shot 23-under to win. But this was Bryson’s weekend to dominate, as he finished in the top five in Strokes Gained for driving, long game, approach play, and putting.

In his last nine starts, DeChambeau has not finished outside of the top-20. His most recent victory came this past November at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas. He now has seven professional wins after his first on the European Tour.

5 tips to help you keep your golf resolutions in 2019

Source: PGA.com
By T.J. Auclair

The new year has arrived and a lot of you golfers out there might be uttering the words, “new year, new me.”

Most of us make New Year’s resolutions and, unfortunately, most of us fail to see them through for all 365 days.

If your resolution involved improving your golf game in 2019, here’s a list of things you can do every day/week — even if you’re in the bitter cold like a lot of folks right now — to help you achieve those goals.

And, once it warms up in your area, you can take all five of these drills outside.

5. Exercise. Yeah, we know. That’s what we should be doing every day anyway, right? But when it comes to golf, you don’t want to be tight. There are a number of stretches you can do right from your desk while reading emails that will benefit your arms, shoulders, neck, back, hips and legs for golf season.

Even better, place one of those handy, elastic, tension bands in the top drawer of your desk.

4. Take 100 swings per day in your house or garage… without a golf ball. The best players in the world visualize the shot they want to hit before they hit it. With a drill like this one, you’re going to be forced to visualize, because there’s no ball there to hit. If you’re able, place a mirror in front of you and pay attention to the positions of your address, takeaway, the top of your swing and impact position as well as follow through. Do it in slow motion. Become an expert on your swing.

3. Work on your chipping. Can’t do it outside? No worries. You can purchase a chipping net, or even put down a hula-hoop as a target. Get a few foam golf balls and a tiny turf mat to hit the balls off of.

Will it produce the same feel as a real golf ball? Of course not. But what it will do is force you to focus on a target and repeat the same motion over and over. After a long layoff, “touch,” is the first thing that goes for all golfers.

This will help you to work on some semblance of touch all winter long.

2. Practice your putting. Anywhere. All you need is a putter, a golf ball, a flat surface and an object — any object — to putt at. If you’re so inclined, rollout turf can be purchased for around $20 with holes cut out.

Since the greens are where you’re going to take most of your strokes, doesn’t it make sense to dial that in whenever possible? It can be fun too. Does your significant other, roommate, or child play? Have regular putting contests.

The feel you gain during those sessions may not seem like much, but man will they come in handy when your season begins on the real grass.

1. Make a weekly appointment with your PGA Professional. Even in areas of the country that are suffering through the cruelest of winter conditions, you can always find a place to hit golf balls inside. Contact your local PGA Professional to find out where places like this in your area exist. You might be surprised at all the options you have.

With your PGA Professional in tow, you can work on your swing throughout the winter months and keep your game sharp. How nice would it be to be on top of your game as soon as the courses in your area open in the spring?

Steal Bryson DeChambeau’s secret to swing consistency

Report: Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson clash ‘The Match’ will return, in some form, in 2019-20

By Kevin Casey, Golfweek

Get ready for some more high-stakes silly season action.

Golf World reports that, as expected, the Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson “The Match” (which saw Mickelson win a 22-hole thriller in 2018) was not a one-time deal.

Apparently, the joint Woods and Mickelson business entity had signed a three-year deal with Turner on the enterprise. That means prepare for “The Match” — in some form — to return in 2019 and ’20.

Per Golf World, the iterations in the next two years likely won’t feature the same Woods-Mickelson one-on-one matchup we saw in 2018. Instead, expect a team showdown to emerge. That could mean either Woods and Mickelson pairing together against another team or the pair posting on opposite sides with a teammate apiece.

The $9 million showdown in 2018 drew nearly one million customers paying the $19.95 pay-per-view subscription, according to Golf World. That of course was soured when the purchasing mechanism broke down early during play, and Turner had to issue refunds.

But the interest in “The Match” was clear. And it looks like we’ll see more of the enterprise.
