NORTON — Even before Bryson DeChambeau tapped in the final, victorious putt of the Dell Technologies Championship Monday, hundreds of TPC Boston volunteers and staff already were making the herculean effort required to clean up and break down a course on the PGA Tour.

Golf carts raced up and down pathways, recycling bags teeming with a holiday weekend’s worth of empties were collected, cables were wound, and a thousand other tasks on the disassembly checklist were attended to.

Set to the backdrop of a setting sun, it marked a fitting end to the PGA Tour’s final Labor Day event in New England.
