Bryson DeChambeau created golf history as he posted a remarkable 58 to win the LIV Golf Greenbrier event in West Virginia.
DeChambeau made 13 birdies as he tore the Old White Course apart to post just the sixth 58 in professional golf history.
The inspired Californian drained a long birdie putt on the last to post the sensational 12-under round and leapt in joy in the rain as he sealed his first LIV title in the most incredible fashion.
It was a final round for the ages for DeChambeau, who had first threatened a sub-60 score when he shot 61 on Saturday to surge up the leaderboard.
He went 21 under-par over the weekend to end up to finish six shots clear of Chile’s Mito Pereira in a mesmerising 36 holes of golf.
5️⃣8️⃣ FOR THE TITLE!
A FIRST WIN FOR BRYSON, AND A FIRST ROUND UNDER 60 IN #LIVGOLF HISTORY! 😱

And DeChambeau’s flawless performance that totalled just 119 blows across his final two rounds will only increase the calls for US Ryder Cup captain Zach Johnson to pick him as one of his six wildcard picks.
DeChambeau revealed after his second round 61 that he had changed to a new Krank Golf Formula Fire Driver this week and the results have been devastating.
And he was emotional after his history-making feat as he reflected on his first victory since the passing of his father Jon late last year.
“He was with me out there today, no doubt,” DeChambeau said. “It’s been almost a year, it’s been a really difficult couple of years but finishing out with a 58, it’s all glory to god and glory to him upstairs.
“I can’t thank my dad for all he taught me, my mom for all she taught me, my brother… it’s just amazing what I was able to do and it couldn’t have been done without all them.”
DeChambeau’s 58 is comfortably the lowest round in LIV Golf’s fledgling history, as he beat the previously low score of 61 that was held by himself, fellow American Matthew Wolff and South African Branden Grace.
