Dustin Johnson’s done it! After Johnson lost last year’s US Open with a 72nd-hole three-putt, he stormed back from a four-shot deficit on Sunday at Oakmont Country Club to win the 116th national championship.
Johnson birdied the par-4 18th hole to ice it, and after the round he was given a one-stroke penalty for his ball having moved as he addressed it on the fifth green. The penalty stroke, while controversial, was a moot point as Johnson’s 69 and his four-under total was still good for a three-shot win.
It marked Johnson’s first major victory at age 31, and atoned for a handful of late gaffes on some of golf’s biggest stages, most recently his three-putt par at the 72nd hole of the 2015 U.S. Open at Chambers Bay.
