"We played in practice rounds quite a bit this year and he's fantastic".

On a day when the temperature reached 91 degrees at TPC Boston with a heat index of 100, DeChambeau proved to be the hottest golfer on the planet.

DeChambeau has won the last two FedEx Cup playoff events, rising to No. 7 in the world. That came six days after he captured the Northern Trust by four strokes.

Ancer dropped three shots in a four-hole stretch on the back nine, hitting into a hazard and making bogey on the 18th and finishing with a 73.

Australian Cameron Smith bogeyed the final hole to settle for a 69 and third place at 13 under. He also believes strongly in biomechanics.

"Consistency has been a big thing for me", he said in a greenside interview after joining compatriots Justin Thomas, Bubba Watson and Dustin Johnson as three-times winners this season. "And I knew it was a matter of time before something cool showed up".

"If I keep doing the numbers right and keep executing the right shots I can't do much more than that", he said.

Furthermore, DeChambeau and Woods have struck up a rapport that suggests they would be good partners in Paris.

Even his friends who encouraged him still thought he was insane.

By the way, for the past year and half his father has switched to same-length irons as well. "I've been playing incredible golf and hopefully I can continue playing great".

"But I can say there is another level".

And he would appear to be a shoo-in to be one of USA captain Jim Furyk's three Ryder Cup picks to be announced Tuesday.

Woods, who has five top-10 finishes this year, including a runner-up at the PGA Championship three weeks ago, ended up 11th in the final Ryder Cup standings, with the top eight players after the PGA earning automatic picks. DeChambeau still has work to do; he leads Johnson by nearly 2,400 points, but the new system keeps the $10 million bonus in flux until the finale at East Lake Sept. 20-23. DeChambeau regained a two-shot lead by sinking an 8-footer for birdie on 15.

DeChambeau is the first man since 2008 to win the opening two FedEx Cup tournaments. "It was nice to kind of sign off here in Boston". "We're heading over to Europe, where it's going to be an interesting, boisterous crowd".

That might be the understatement of the PGA Tour season.

It is his fourth win on the PGA Tour in just over one year and he is projected to move to number seven in the world rankings.
