DeChambeau wins Bay Hill, claims 8th PGA Tour title

       Bryson DeChambeau put on a power show at Bay Hill on Sunday to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational for his eighth PGA Tour title. He made 12 consecutive pars to close out his final-round 71. 

“I don’t even know what to say to win at Mr. Palmer’s event,” DeChambeau said afterward. “It’s gonna make me cry.”

DeChambeau relied heavily on his driving ability. He gained seven strokes off the tee over the course of four rounds to lead the field, highlighted by two mammoth 350-plus-yard drives on the par-5 sixth that excited the weekend crowds.

However, DeChambeau separated himself from the field in the final round with clutch par saves. He was one of only three players to shoot under par during a difficult Sunday in Orlando, where the final-round scoring average (75.49) was the highest it’s been since 1980.

DeChambeau will move to No. 6 in the world rankings after his first victory since the 2020 U.S. Open in September.

Here’s the top of the leaderboard:

1 Bryson DeChambeau 

2 Lee Westwood 

3 Corey Conners 

T4 Andrew Putnam 

T4 Richy Werenski 

T4 Jordan Spieth 

7 Christiaan Bezuidenhout 

T8 Chris Kirk 

T8 Jason Kokrak 

Jordan Spieth recorded his third top-five finish over the 27-year-old’s last four starts. He continues to climb up the world rankings as he moves to No. 51 after nearly falling out of the top 100.

The PGA Tour heads to TPC Sawgrass next week for The Players Championship.
