Bryson DeChambeau, who is unstoppable in tournament situations, has stated that his current play does not justify his ranking of 10th in the world golf rankings.

Bryson DeChambeau, who believes that he is unstoppable right now, has put Rory McIlroy on notice. At the US Open last weekend, 30-year-old DeChambeau denied McIlroy his first major since 2014.

As the final five holes of the competition approached on Sunday, McIlroy appeared poised to end a ten-year title drought. However, the Northern Irishman’s downfall would ultimately come from missed par putts on the 16th and 18th holes.

McIlroy finally gave in to the pressure, and following his disappointment, he left Pinehurst. DeChambeau, on the other hand, maintained his composure by making a four-foot putt on the 18th hole following a brilliant bunker recovery, earning him his second major championship overall and adding to his 2020 US Open victory from Winged Foot.

Despite moving up 28 spots to take 10th place in the World Golf Rankings, DeChambeau feels that his current standing doesn’t really reflect the way he is currently developing his craft. The American said earlier this week to Golfmonthly, “It’s funny because when I won back-to-back FedExCup Playoff events in 2018, I thought I was No. 1 even though the OWGR didn’t show that.

“I thought my game was good enough to win this week,” the player continued. “I could win again and I could win again.” These remarks reveal how assured DeChambeau is right now and may have dire consequences for players like Scottie Scheffler and Rory McIlroy before The Open at Troon next month.

“That was kind of the same thing that I sort of feel right now,” he went on. I don’t think the statistics accurately depict what they show.

“However, the fact that I believe I am ranked tenth is fantastic. for just participating in a small number of events, the majority of which were majors.”

Ever humble, DeChambeau has acknowledged that he cannot determine if he is the greatest player in the world, but he has cautioned opponents that he will keep trying to “play the best golf” that he can. “Am I the best player in the world?” he continued. I have no say in the matter. I will simply go out there and play the best golf I can in an attempt to beat everyone else to the damn ball in the hole.

“I refuse to assign myself a name or title. I don’t work like that. My goal is to play the best golf I can, motivate others, and provide excellent entertainment for everyone.

McIlroy, on the other hand, has made the decision to step away from the game following his crushing loss at the US Open. The 35-year-old acknowledged on X in the days following the competition that he would take some time to process the highs and lows of the experience before making a comeback at the Genesis Scottish Open the following month.

“When I think back on my week, I’ll regret a few things throughout the competition, mainly the two putts that I missed on the last day on holes 16 and 18.” he wrote. I will, however, focus on the positives of the week, which far outweigh the negatives, as I always try to do. I feel more than ever like I’m going to win my next major championship, as I stated at the beginning of the competition.

“Resilient is the one word I would use to sum up my career. Over the past 17 years, I have repeatedly demonstrated my resilience, and I will do so once more. In order to process everything and get myself back up for my defense at the Genesis Scottish Open and The Open at Royal Troon, I’m going to take a few weeks off from the game. I’ll see you in Scotland.
