Dustin Johnson is officially a green jacket owner. The 36-year-old won The Masters this weekend with a final score of 20-under par for his second career major championship victory.
Johnson‘s win was one of the most dominant in Masters history. He plodded his way through Augusta National Golf Club all weekend without a care in the world, and he set an impressive Masters record in the process.
Dustin Johnson wins the 84th Masters
Dustin Johnson was already having a career year in 2020, but it just got even better. Johnson cruised to a victory this weekend at the 84th annual Masters Tournament. It’s his second career major win and his fourth PGA Tour victory since June.
Johnson has been the most dominant and most consistent player on Tour ever since the PGA returned from its COVID-19 hiatus. Since June, Johnson has four wins and only one finish outside of the top 12 in his last nine appearances.
Johnson finished T6 at the U.S. Open in September and T2 at the Vivint Houston Open last weekend leading up to The Masters. He entered the first major of the season as one of the prohibitive favorites, and he made his backers very happy with his performance.
Johnson made Masters history with his win
Johnson will just be happy with the win and the new outfit that comes along with it, but his performance in the 2020 Masters might be the greatest in the history of the tournament.
DJ finished the tournament at 20-under par over four rounds, which is the lowest score to par in Masters history. Jordan Spieth and Tiger Woods held the previous record at -18.
Johnson opened the tournament with a seven-under 65 on Thursday. He followed that up with a hard-fought 70 on Friday and a blistering 65 again on Saturday.
With all the pressure on his shoulders entering Sunday, Johnson fired a final-round 68 and never relinquished the lead all day. He finished the tournament with a par on 18 to finish at a record 20-under.
If you thought Johnson couldn’t be more impressive this season, think again. He’s the best player in the world by a large margin at this point, and he just solidified himself as one of the greatest golfers of all time with his historic win at Augusta.
Dustin Johnson is a future Hall of Famer
Johnson’s incredible golf career is far from over, but he’s already established himself as a Hall of Famer when it’s all said and done.
His win at The Masters gives him 24 career victories on Tour, which is tied with Hall of Famer Gary Player for 26th of all time. Johnson also now has two career major victories.
The way Johnson is playing, he’ll reach 30 career wins fairly easily, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see him achieve the career Grand Slam one day. Johnson finally closed a major in which he held the 54-hole lead, and he did it in historic fashion.
No one has ever played Augusta National as well as Johnson did this past weekend.
