DeChambeau Claims the Memorial Because He Backed into It the Least

There's nothing like giving a dissertation on the next level of golf when Jack Nicklaus is sitting right next to you.

Anything to change the subject from how this tournament was won.

And as the PGA Tour's resident golf geek, Bryson DeChambeau is just the dude to do it. Starting with one-length clubs:


Before this week, DeChambeau and his cutting-edge amassed a total of one victory on the tour.

The highlights only hint at how The Memorial was won, but suffice to say the 24-year-old finally figured out the 18th hole:


Dude took a roundabout way of winning it:

Kyle Stanley made the playoff even though his final tee shot conked a tree and caromed into the rough.
