Watch Bryson DeChambeau come within an inch of U.S. Open hole-in-one

The ball landed short and released towards the pin.


There are certain shots that make it easy to tell when a player is in the zone. When he’s feeling good and locked-in. On Sunday at the 2021 U.S. Open, coming into the 8th hole as the co-leader in a fiercely contested championship, Bryson pulled a pitching wedge from 175 yards and laced a draw onto the front of the green.

The ball landed then took a hard hop, then settled on the ground and rode the ridge. The ball rolled right-to-left at the perfect speed and kept breaking right towards the hole…

Until it settled about an inch away.

An amazing shot in the heat of the U.S. Open pressure, which you can watch in full below.
