Congrats to Golf’s U.S. Open Winner Dustin (Long Hitting) Johnson! After numerous attempts at winning a major (after leading) he has finally broken through and can now be called a Major Championship winner. Dustin who has been snake bitten a few times while trying to win golf’s major championships. Has finally gotten that monkey off his back. This hopefully will help him get more under his belt by relieving the pressure!
Being such a long hitter it was expected that he would have won multiple major championships by now, but he has also managed to get in his own way by penalized by doing things most would expect an amateur to make and not a professional golfer of his standards. And it almost happened again when he was almost penalized for an infraction on his way to victory this Father’s day the typical climax of Golf’s U.S. Open! With his prodigious drives and deft touch around the greens Dustin has proven his has the game to win Majors…just not necessarily the mental toughness to get through 4 days of tough course conditions.
But that may be a thing of the past since he has pulled off a victory in what is usually the toughest setup of the four majors. One would expect that he will one day win The Masters Tournament but only time will tell! Putting may still be the weakest part of his game and if he is to win that tournament he will has to get better on the putting surface to be able to put on The Green Jacket. But he has some time to work on that since it’s the first major of the year and doesn’t happen until April of 2017. So enjoy your win Dustin…The British Open is just around the corner!
