      Matthew Wolff began the final round at the U.S. Open with a two-stroke lead over Bryson DeChambeau and despite a rough start he was still just a shot off the lead when the final group made the turn. That’s when things went awry.

“Was it the break on 10 when I was standing in the bunker or like the not-left bounce on 12, and then the second shot that got pin high on 12 and then spun back down the slope?” said Wolff, who closed with a 75 and finished in second place and six strokes behind DeChambeau. “I mean, it’s just bad breaks. Like I said, you can’t do anything about it, and it just wasn’t meant to be.”

Following an eagle at the ninth, Wolff bogeyed Nos. 10 and 14, and doubled the 16th, on his way to his worst round of the week. 

Despite the struggles, it was his second consecutive top-10 finish in a major championship.

“I played really tough all week. I battled hard. Things just didn’t go my way. But first U.S. Open, second place is something to be proud of and hold your head up high for,” he said. “I’m just excited to learn from this experience, and it’s definitely not the last time that I’m going to be in this spot.”

Winner Bryson DeChambeau ended with a six-stroke victory over Wolff at the U.S. Open, would play at Augusta National this November.

“Length is going to be a big advantage there. I know that for a fact,” DeChambeau said. “I’m going to try and prepare by testing a couple things with the driver.”

DeChambeau averaged 336.3 yards off the tee at Winged Foot. He’s been experimenting with a 48-inch driver shaft. “We’re going to be messing with some head designs and do some amazing with things with Cobra to make it feasible to hit these drives maybe 360, 370 [yards],” he said. “Maybe even farther. I don’t know.” Tough talk for someone hitting just 41 percent of his fairways at the U.S. Open..

DeChambeau will be the betting favorite heading into the Masters.

“I don’t shudder, but if he can do it around here, and I’m thinking of Augusta and thinking of the way you sort of play,” Rory McIlroy said. “The game’s moved on a lot in the last 14 years since the U.S. Open’s been played here, and you’re seeing what the game has become, what he’s doing out there.”
