Bryson DeChambeau isn't a hockey player, but he apparently has no problem playing through an injury to win a title.
The PGA golfer fired a final-round 66 on Sunday to win the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open by one stroke. However, he did that after hurting his hand while being the Vegas Golden Knights' guest on Saturday night during their win over the Carolina Hurricanes.
Following his victory on Sunday, DeChambeau told reporters he injured his right hand while winding up the air horn at T-Mobile Arena during the second intermission.
"I ripped part of my hand off, which is nice,” he told reporters, via Golf Channel's Ryan Lavner. DeChambeau added that his blister was “a little bigger than dime size.”
DeChambeau said he was "freaking out" Sunday morning before the final round and tried applying a skincare product, but the wound dried up and cracked.
“I’m like, Wow, I’m really in some doo-doo; not in a good place,” he said.
He eventually tried using moisturizer and received further medical attention from the on-site trainers at the course, allowing him to swing mostly without discomfort.
“I gave that thing a whirl and got the crowd pumped up for the third (period) and (the Golden Knights) went on to win, so, more power to them, and more power to me, I guess.”
