On hole #14 during the third round at the Wells Fargo Championship, Bryson DeChambeau had a putt to make par on a par 5. However, he missed the putt and plugged his ball in a greenside bunker. He then took his approach shot to the green and… missed his par putt too. After making a double bogey on 18, DeChambeau missed another putt on the final hole to finish the tournament at -7, which is a really bad score.
Bryson DeChambeau is a professional golfer from the United States who is currently ranked #53 in the world. He plays for the PGA Tour and is based at the par-72 course of Torrey Pines in San Diego, California. He is best known for his driving distance and accuracy, winning the 2015 U.S. Open and the 2017 PGA Championship, and he won the 2017 John Deere Classic.
Bryson Deschambault had an eventful weekend at the Wells Fargo Championship. After a second round of 74 on Friday, he was in 90th place in the standings. Because only the top 65 golfers could continue playing over the weekend, Deschambault was sure he wouldn’t make the cut, so he hopped on a private jet and flew home to Dallas, Texas. But at the end of the second round, Deschambault was 64th. His trip back to Quail Hollow in Charlotte, North Carolina was exciting and he actually ended the weekend $228,000 richer.

PGA Tour event to win After finishing the second round of the Wells Fargo Championship well above the cut line with a 2-over-par score, Deschambault decided to wait and return to Dallas early. He didn’t think he had a chance to finish in the top 65, but the conditions on the course got hotter in the afternoon and many players ended up at 3 over par or worse. Deschambault finished the day in 64th place. Is there a problem? Friday night he was on the other side of the country and couldn’t get back to North Carolina. So he ate on the flight, went to bed early, and returned to Quail Hollow on another private plane early Saturday morning. It was fun, Deschambault told reporters Sunday. Last night we spent a long time trying to get revenge. One scenario called for a turn in the opposite direction, but the crew couldn’t refuel and time was running out. So we had to recruit a new team, and that didn’t work. And we said: Well, let’s go tomorrow morning. So I got on the plane at 2:45pm, arrived at 6:20pm, drove 30 minutes to the golf course, changed in the locker room and headed to the golf course. I did practice last night. Of course you are.
Deschambault ended the tournament incredibly in ninth place

The 27-year-old shot a 68 in the third round and followed that up with another 68 on Sunday to finish the tournament in ninth place at 4-under par. Rory McIlroy won the event with a score of 10-under. But Deschambault earned unexpected FedEx Cup points for more than just a good result. He also got a big check for flying on time.

Not bad for where he was Friday night. But was it worth the trip back? It was worth it. It was probably worth it, he said. That’s exactly what I was going to do this weekend by getting on a plane at 2:45. Yeah, I wanted to make it worth your while. I didn’t want to come here and be on the 60. I’d rather finish last. Even if they do, it’s still FedEx Cup points, world ranking points. I went back and finished it. I hope to enter the top 10, stay there and move up in the world ranking.
