On a golf course where nobody was expected to break par in Winged Foot, one man stood head and shoulders about the rest – American Bryson DeChambeau.

His six-shot win will validate his so-called bomb and gouge method of overpowering a golf course and his six-under par total and ease at which he collected a first Major title will no doubt make the world of golf stand up and take notice. Here’s what his victory means:
