Bryson DeChambeau was a $1,000 clue on Jeopardy!, has officially made it

January 07, 2021

As any avid Jeopardy! watcher knows, this is a sad week. Friday night's episode will be the final one for longtime host Alex Trebek, who sadly passed away at the age of 80 from pancreatic cancer this past November. 

That has made this week's episodes must-watch affairs, even for golf fans who were locked in on the opening round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions on Thursday evening. If you did happen to peak over at Jeopardy!, you were treated to a golf clue, also known as a unicorn on the famous game show. 

But this wasn't just any golf clue, this one featured the always controversial Bryson DeChambeau, who is already off to a strong start at Kapalua. He may have gone mainstream after the U.S. Open win, but you don't truly make it until you are a Jeopardy! clue (and a $1,000 one, no less): 

OK, so maybe Bryson isn't so mainstream yet, though it's not for lack of trying. Normally, we'd chalk this up to another Jeopardy! sports question gaffe, of which there are many, but our girl Natalie was on fire in the "Jocks" category before the Bryson clue. She had gotten Mike Trout's team (the L.A. Angels) correct, and then answered "Giannis" correctly on a clue about the Greek Freak. The judges were nice enough to not make the contestants say his last name - Antetokounmpo. Has Jeopardy! gone soft??

All kidding aside, tough break for Bryson, but he shouldn't fret. Even Phil Mickelson got the every-contestant-got-the-question-wrong treatment just a few months ago
