At the Masters in Augusta, Dustin Johnson has unequivocally achieved his current status as the number one of the golf world. The 36-year-old American kept his nerves well under control on the closing day in Georgia and did not give up his leadership position. With a round of 68 strokes and a historical final score of 268, he was a class apart.
Johnson wrote history on the fifteenth hole. With a birdie he got a score of -20 for the tournament, being the first player ever to the Masters. With three pars in a row, he also managed to end up on that unique score.
South Korean Im Sung-jae and Australian Cameron Smith ended in second place, five strokes of the glorious winner.
Johnson won his second major title at The National. Four years ago, he wrote the U.S. Open to his name.
Johnson earned about 1.75 million euros with his victory in Augusta and was also allowed to wear the coveted green jacket.
