Newly-crowned US Open champion Bryson DeChambeau will make his first appearance since his brilliant victory at Winged Foot a few weeks ago when he tees off at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open on Tuesday.
With TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas hosting the event, DeChambeau will be part of an exciting featured group for the opening two rounds playing alongside Matthew Wolff and Cameron Champ.
The big-hitting DeChambeau will, however, have fond memories of the course and event after narrowly winning it back in 2018 after a tight battle with Patrick Cantlay.

But, the pairing of DeChambeau, Wolff and Champ is sure to provide a lot of fireworks – maybe literally from the tee – with their strong and physical way of playing.
Wolff, on the other hand, will also be eager for some revenge on DeChambeau after falling out of contention during the final round of the US Open when the two Americans were in the same group.
Jason Day, Hideki Matsuyama and last week’s winner at the Sanderson Farms Championship, Sergio Garcia, are all part of another featured group, while defending champion Kevin Na, Cantlay and Rickie Fowler will also be exciting to watch on Thursday and Friday.
Webb Simpson, Collin Morikawa and Joaquin Niemann complete the final featured group for the first and second rounds.
