As Bryson DeChambeau continues to bask in his U.S. Open glory, golf legend Phil Mickelson shares his honest thoughts about his “unique” LIV Golf rival

Phil Mickelson shares his thoughts on LIV Golf rival Bryson DeChambeau.

The 30-year-old DeChambeau is still basking in the glory of his dramatic U.S. Open win over Rory McIlroy. After leading Pinehurst by two strokes with five holes to go, McIlroy had a stunning final round, dropping three bogeys on the last four holes to pave the way for California-born DeChambeau to win a major championship in front of him.

One of the key moments came on the final hole, when he executed a sensational escape from a 50-yard bunker that he hailed as “the shot of my life.” He caps off the effort with a 4-foot putt.

DeChambeau passes McIlroy to win his second U.S. Open trophy. Mickelson, who won six majors during his long career, said he always learns something new by watching Mickelson.

Bryson DeChambeau suffers another setback as he misses Olympics

In an interview with the official LIV Golf YouTube channel, Mickelson reminisced about the US Open, saying: I think Bryson is the most charismatic and fun player to watch today, he approaches the game in a completely different way. “He’s great because he’s always been successful, but he’s also great in terms of interacting with the fans and has a great energy. I’ve always seen that in him and I love being around him and I learn a lot when I’m with him.” So it was really impressive to watch him play, go the distance, attack the golf course and dominate.”

DeChambeau was great, but Mickelson struggled at Pinehurst, the Express reported. The golf star won a bogey-filled round on Thursday and survived another frenetic round on Friday.

Mickelson was not able to score a birdie and finished with a scorecard featuring a quartet of bogeys and a double bogey on the 18th hole. Having missed the cut just seven times prior in his career, he was disappointed with his early exit.
