Bryson DeChambeau unveils ultimate career goal ahead of U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2.

Bryson DeChambeau last won a major championship four years ago, when he conquered Winged Foot’s West Course in the midst of the pandemic.

He says he is a different person now, but his goal of competing and winning majors remains the same.

And yet, ahead of this week’s U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2, DeChambeau revealed his ultimate career goal.

“After 20 more years of hopefully playing golf, God-willing, I’m hopefully going to complete that Career Grand Slam. That’s my ultimate goal for myself,” DeChambeau said Tuesday.

“I tried to get that done at Valhalla for the second leg, but it didn’t happen. Knowing I could get the job done, especially shooting 64 on Sunday, I gave it all I had. I let it all out there. I feel really confident with my game in under-pressure situations, which is great.”

DeChambeau finished one stroke behind Xander Schauffele, who won his first major at the PGA Championship this past May. But DeChambeau still finished at 20-under par, the lowest score of any non-winner in major championship history.

“I played spectacularly that week. I scored impeccably,” DeChambeau said.

“I didn’t strike it as particularly well as I would have liked to, but I got fortunate in certain situations, and I capitalized on my putting being a huge asset to me that week.”

DeChambeau cannot add another leg to the Grand Slam this week, given that he has already won the U.S. Open, but that will not stop him from pursuing another major victory. Yet he recognizes the difficulty that Pinehurst No. 2 presents.

“Looking forward to a tough test of golf out here. Pinehurst is no joke,” DeChambeau added.

“This is a ball striker’s paradise. You have to hit it in the middle of the greens. And this is a Boo Weekley quote, but the center of the green never moves, so I’ll try to focus on that this week.”
