D.J. Dustin Johnson finally does it as he wins his first Major, the U.S. Open.
Dustin shot a final round -1 under par 69, and posted a -4 under par total to win the U.S. Open, his maiden Major title;
“It feels good, feels really good, feels well deserved.”
“I’ve had a lot of opportunities that I didn’t quite get it done. So this one’s definitely really sweet.”
“I knew I was swinging well, and I just kept thinking, it’s just me and the course, I’m playing against the course. I can’t control what anyone else does.”
“So I just tried to hit golf shots, tried to hit it on the correct side of the hole, and two-putt.”
Shane Lowry started the final round with a four shot lead, but spectacularly slumped with a last round of +6 over par 76. He finished the tournament tied in second place with Jim Furyk, -4 under par 66 today, and Scott Piercy -1 under today, all at -1 under for the tournament.
Only four players finished under par, with Sergio Garcia, even par 70 today and Branden Grace, +1 over 71, sharing fifth spot at even par.
Lee Westwood played alongside Dustin in the penultimate group, the part time golfer proving that you cannot just turn-up and compete for four rounds at Major tournaments. Maybe after today’s dismal last round effort of +10 over par 80 he will consider paying the tour regularly.
