Rahm is perfect again, but loses the lead

The American Bryson DeChambeau had his best performance so far this season with a record of 60 strokes (-12) at the conclusion of the second round of the ATP Tour BMW Championship tournament, and become the new leader with a cumulative 128 hits (-16), one advantage over his compatriot Patrick Cantlay and the Spanish Jon Rahm (129, -15).

DeChambeau dominated the vulnerable course, and when his 8 iron to par 5 16 came off a bench at the back of the green to less than a meter for an eagle, it took two birdies on the final two holes to tie the PGA Tour record of 58 strokes.

He missed from four meters on the 17. He missed a putt of less than two meters on the 18th hole and missed his shot at the 13th round under-60 in PGA Tour history.

DeChambeau had to settle for 60, the best mark of his career, giving him a one-shot advantage over Patrick Cantlay when thunderstorms delayed the second round.

Rahm, the world’s number one player, was also a shot back and faced a fifteen foot birdie putt on the 16th hole when play was stopped for darkness.

“They made a lot of putts. A lot of things went well,” DeChambeau said. “I played my butt and never thought too much of anything until the last few holes, and I scratched a 9 iron at 17, I scratched a drive, I scratched a wedge at 18 and I just couldn’t catch those putts. “

It was the second week in a row during the PGA Tour postseason that a player had a putt to break 60 on the final hole. Australian Cameron Smith missed from less than four meters at Liberty National in the third round last week.
