So, Bryson DeChambeau won again for his fifth career
00:03
PGA Tour title and his fourth victory of 2018.
00:06
To put that in perspective, DeChambeau now has
00:08
as many PGA Tour wins in the past five months,
00:11
as Rickie Fowler does in his entire career!
00:14
Sorry Ricky, but you've kind of become default guy,
00:17
when comparing win totals.
00:18
Anyway, after Bryson's latest win in Las Vegas,
00:21
this is some kind of heater he's on.
00:23
And as everyone knows, you never leave the table,
00:25
when you're on a heater.
00:27
Except the 25 year old star, is probably gonna take
00:29
the rest of the fall off, after walking away
00:31
with another jackpot that pushed his 2018 on course earnings
00:35
to more than 11 million!
00:37
Decent.
00:38
And, who knows how much he's made off the course.
00:41
With Bryson's pension for numbers, I bet he could clean up
00:44
at the casino blackjack tables.
00:46
Heck, just earlier in the week,
00:47
it came out that DeChambeau used something called
00:49
the coefficient of restitution to determine whether
00:53
to keep the pin in on putts next year.
00:56
Imagine playing poker with him,
00:57
while he quickly calculates pot odds, no thanks.
01:01
But the most amazing part of his Vegas win,
01:03
is that he played through a hockey injury,
01:05
he suffered the night before.
01:06
A hockey injury, he suffered while watching a hockey game,
01:10
that is.
01:11
You see, DeChambeau helped get
01:12
the Las Vegas Golden Knight's crowd into a frenzy
01:15
by cranking up a siren and somehow,
01:17
ripped part of my hand off.
01:20
Sounds painful and a bit embarrassing.
01:22
Which is probably why Bryson didn't breathe a word
01:24
about this until after he gingerly hoisted the trophy.
01:28
The sneaky best part of this story,
01:30
is that Bryson said the incident happened
01:32
before the third quarter of the game.
01:35
Bryson may have a beautiful mind,
01:36
but he's still a beautiful golf nerd at heart.
01:38
I'm not exactly Mr. Pucks, and even I know,
01:40
hockey games have periods and not quarters.
01:43
So, it turns out, DeChambeau doesn't know everything
01:46
there is to know about the universe.
01:48
But, he certainly knows how to win on the PGA tour.
01:51
And, you don't need the coefficient of restitution
01:52
to know he's just getting started.
