Patrick Cantlay won the 2021 BMW Championship on Sunday, his third PGA Tour title this season and the fifth of his career. The Owings Mills course, near Baltimore, was very successful for him as evidenced by his card of 66 (-6) on the last lap, for a total score of -27 over the four days. The American being however pursued very closely by his compatriot Bryson DeChambeau. They both started the day tied, ending it six strokes under par and entering the playoffs.
Disillusionment for DeChambeau
Bryson DeChambeau however had several opportunities which he unfortunately did not know how to materialize. The putter for the best driver of the PGA Tour was not there. He missed a 2.5-meter putt at the finish and left the victory to Cantlay. At the third hole of the playoffs he could have won, but once again his putter did his.
The precise approaches of Patrick Cantlay overcame the overpowering drives of Bryson DeChambeau. The two players finish four strokes ahead of the third position occupied by the South Korean Im Sung-jae and his -23.
