Bryson DeChambeau spent the night before his win at the U.S. Open practicing.
Already set to tee off in the final group on Sunday, DeChambeau wasn’t satisfied with his swing ahead of the final round and decided to work out the kinks under the lights at the practice range.

On his walk over to the range, DeChambeau spoke with Dylan Dethier of Golf.com, saying he was hoping to work on his drives to make sure he hit a few more fairways in the final round. He also opened up a bit about his nerves heading into Sunday with a shot at his first major title.
“It’s definitely a little bit of nerves, but it’s also other things,” DeChambeau said. “Sensitivity to air. How I’m perceiving reality. It’s very difficult to explain, but essentially I can feel like I do something, but it can come off totally different depending on what reality actually is, so I gotta get my perception and my reality.”

Whatever Bryson did on Saturday night, it worked.
On Sunday, DeChambeau shot an astounding three-under par to win the U.S. Open by six strokes. He was the only player in the field to not play a single round of the tournament over par.
DeChambeau has always been about his process, and on Sunday, it paid off in the form of his first major championship.
