Dustin Johnson Finds Another Way to Lose a Major


Dustin Johnson had the lead briefly at -7 under par during the second round of the 2013 Masters on Friday, but once again found a way to lose six strokes in the last five holes. Oh..by the way, he did make one par at the par 3 16th hole. Not so good on 15, and 18 though.

Dustin made a mess at the par five 15th, (the same hole Tiger Woods took a snowman), and figured a way to double bogey the par four 18th. He made normal bogeys at 14, and 17, and on a day where he had it all going, it all went away. Johnson also had a couple of bogeys early during the rain, at the first and third holes. His day ended with a four over par 76 for his second round, and a tie at 19th place at -1 under for a total.

I thought this was an interesting tweet coming from 83 year-old SI Sports Reporter Dan Jenkins. The old dude has everything in perspective, as maybe Dustin does.

Dustin Johnson blew a final round lead at the 2010 US Open that was eventually won by Graeme McDowell. He also made an error a couple of months later when he lost to Martin Kaymer at Whistling Straights at the 2010 PGA Championship. He grounded his club in what turned out to be one of hundreds of sand hazards on the golf course. He was assessed a penalty, and eventually ended tied at the end of regulation play. He lost in the playoff to Kaymer.
