Trump Celebrates as His Friend Bryson DeChambeau Wins Epic U.S. Open Duel: 'Some of the Greatest Shots Ever Made'


Forner President Donald Trump saluted U.S. Open winner Bryson DeChambeau Sunday after DeChambeau won on the final hole in Pinehurst, North Carolina.

“Congratulations to Bryson DeChambeau on his incredible WIN of the United States Open!” Trump posted on Truth Social. “He showed a toughness and inner strength, matched perfectly with his GREAT Golfing Talent, that can never be denied!”

“Under massive pressure, he pulled off some of the greatest shots ever made, especially his spectacular sand save on the 18th Hole that gave him the Victory.”

“‘Mr. 58’ has always been a WINNER, and will go on to many more Major Championships. He is a truly tough competitor, even a nasty one, but he also happens to be a great guy,” the former president said, using a nickname DeChambeau earned by shooting a final-round 58 to win LIV Golf’s Greenbrier event in 2023.

“The U.S.A. could not be better represented,” Trump continued. “Congratulations also to LIV Golf for their genius in signing Bryson and other of the best Golfers in the World. Hopefully Golf will soon come together as one, fully united, which is the way it should be.”

DeChambeau’s chance to win the Open on the 18th hole at Pinehurst No. 2 emerged when Rory McIlroy missed a par putt, but it was a near-run thing, according to ESPN.

Did you root for Bryson DeChambeau on Sunday?

From a bunker 55 yards from the hole, DeChambeau chipped to four feet from the hole and sunk the putt to win by one stroke.

“I was going to try and birdie the hole on 18, obviously, if I hit a good drive, but pulled it,” DeChambeau said.

“But I knew where Rory was. After my tee shot, I was up there going, ‘Man, if he makes par, I don’t know how I’m going to beat him.’ I just really didn’t know. Then I heard the moans. Like a shot of adrenaline got in me. I said, ‘OK, you can do this,'” said DeChambeau, who was playing in a group behind McIlroy.

DeChambeau called the chip shot to the green the “best shot of my life.”

He and Trump have long been friends.

“He’s actually a really good golfer. He stripes it down the middle of the fairway and has good iron game and putts it pretty well,” DeChambeau said of the former president in 2023 when he played a pro-am at Trump’s Bedminster golf course in New Jersey with Trump.

He said playing with Trump “was an honor. I mean, anytime you get to play with a president, whether passed or sitting, it’s just an honor, no matter who it is. Very lucky to have a relationship with him, and he’s always been generous to me.”

In a Q&A shared on the Trump Organization’s website, DeChambeau said he was happy to be connected to the former president and the organization.

“I am extremely honored to represent Trump Golf and have the relationship with the Trump Organization that I have. From Larry Glick, to Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr., the entire team is always behind me 100 percent and I am grateful for their support,” he said.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 


That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.


Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.


The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”


All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.


Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 


A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.


We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight?
