Bryson DeChambeau has posted the lowest score in the history of the two-year-old LIV Golf League.
During Sunday’s final round of the LIV Golf Greenbrier at the Old White Course in White Sulfur Springs, West Virginia, DeChambeau posted a 12-under 58.
DeChambeau’s scorecard was simply one circle after another as he collected 13 birdies. He started on the first hole in the Sunday shotgun start and had six birdies on his first seven holes before a bogey at the eighth. He closed with four straight birdies on Nos. 15 through 18 to get to 23 under to win the event by five shots over Mito Pereira.
The most dramatic stroke was his final one on his final hole, a long putt to break 60 by two shots.
5⃣8⃣ FOR THE TITLE!
A FIRST WIN FOR BRYSON, AND A FIRST ROUND UNDER 60 IN #LIVGOLF HISTORY!

The Old White course played as a par-70 and measured 7,255 yards Sunday.
After his round, he was asked on the CW telecast about whether he thought U.S. Ryder Cup captain Zach Johnson would soon be giving him a call.
“I’ve got some equipment that’s performing quite nicely, with the driver and that’s a deadly combination with my putting. Cleary I putted well, drove it well, wedged it well. You couldn’t have written it up any better than this,” he said. “But if I do get a call, that’d be awesome. If not, I’ll be rooting them on over in Rome.”
Phil Mickelson congratulated DeChambeau on social media but also took a chance to give him some friendly ribbing: “Incredible round by Bryson. 58. What a weekend and win for him. He stole my jump though. Not cool. Proud of his resolve after Cameron and I gave him a thumping Wednesday.”
DeChambeau won $4 million for the victory, his first LIV title. The Torque GC team of Pereira, David Puig, Joaquin Niemann and Sebastian Munoz won the team title.
