Bryson DeChambeau just missed a short putt on 18 at the BMW championship that would’ve cemented a 59. Couldn’t have happened to a better guy. Brooks Koepka agrees with me.
First, he set up the putt with this monstrous approach:

It all led to a Sopranos level flop of a finale:

Seriously, we still somehow feel sorry for the multimillionaire that plays one of the most fun sports ever for a living because he was robbed of history. Not the first time any of us have witnessed someone pull the hell out of a putt from inside 10 feet. Most of us have a push (and a slice off the tee), so we feel you on this one, Bryson.
Might be one of the only times we sympathize with you. But still, DeChambeau turns in a 60 to take the lead heading into the weekend. Here’s his final scorecard. Bravo, sir.
Eight birdies. Two eagles.
