Bryson DeChambeau wins 2nd U.S. Open, edging Rory McIlroy



PINEHURST, N.C. -- LIV Golf League captain Bryson DeChambeau is a U.S. Open champion again.

And PGA Tour star Rory McIlroy's nearly 10-year drought without a major championship victory will go on, after he endured the most painful of all his near-misses in the final round of the 124th U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2 on Sunday.

After McIlroy missed a short par putt for the second time in the final three holes on No. 18, DeChambeau hit a difficult second shot out of the native grass -- and near a tree root -- and across the fairway into a bunker.
