Sports News:
Dustin Johnson paints a by-the-numbers Masters-piece

Breaking the scoring document was on his thoughts, as a result of, in fact it was. Dustin Johnson needed it, too. He simply hadn’t bothered to look the quantity up.

“It was 19 (under) before?” Johnson requested a Masters official to his proper within the interview room late Sunday afternoon. They had on similar inexperienced jackets.

Told it was 18 beneath (shared by Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth), Johnson flashed a shy grin. His expression hardly ever provides a lot away; his solutions appear designed to deflect consideration. A second later, Johnson admitted that he hadn’t checked out a scoreboard all day, both.

Not after shaky back-to-back bogeys at Nos. 3 and 4 peeled his four-shot lead again to at least one; nor after three straight birdies on the again 9 left Cameron Smith and Sungjae Im, Johnson’s final two pursuers, within the mud. He didn’t see the necessity to complicate issues.

“I didn’t want it to affect the way I played,” Johnson mentioned. “I just didn’t look at it. I took what the course gave me and hit the shots I felt I could hit.”

Coming down 18, although, he lastly gave in. Johnson turned to his brother Austin, who conveniently doubles as his caddie, and requested the place he stood.

“I told him he had a five-shot lead,” Austin recalled. “I could kick it in from there. He had no clue.”

Johnson’s distaste for drama is commonly mistaken for indifference. He got here out on tour in 2007 seeking to all of the world like he was born to play golf – lengthy arms, a gradual heartbeat and a syrupy swing that belies its uncooked energy – then received early and, apart from the majors, usually.

Johnson accomplished the climb to No. 1 on this planet the primary time in 2017 and stayed there for the higher a part of the three years since. He’d received twice already this 12 months and nonetheless held that lofty spot when he arrived at Augusta, having already spent practically two weeks in quarantine after testing constructive for the coronavirus in addition. If anybody had a storyline that ran straight via this unusual, pandemic-disrupted season, it was Johnson.

Yet no one was happier when the pre-tournament highlight targeted on Tiger Woods’ possibilities of reprising his unbelievable 2019 win, and bulked-up Bryson DeChambeau’s grand plan to carve up Augusta National the best way he sliced and diced Winged Foot on the U.S. Open. Predictably maybe, each had been previous information by the point Johnson stretched out to a four-shot lead heading into the ultimate spherical.

That transfer introduced Johnson’s haunting previous on the majors again to the fore. In his lone triumph, the 2016 U.S. Open, he got here from 4 photographs behind on the ultimate day to win. On 4 different events, Johnson had a minimum of a share of the lead after 54 holes and did not money in. Though you wouldn’t have recognized by watching him play – a minimum of after these early bogeys – the suspense was taking its toll on him, too.

“I proved to myself that I do have it, ” Johnson started, “because I’m sure a lot of y’all think …” after which paused. “Like, when am I going to have the lead and finish off the golf tournament or finish off a major?”

Johnson saved the actual shock, because it turned out, for afterward. In a post-match interview on CBS, Amanda Balionis tried a number of instances to get Johnson to elucidate what lastly slipping on the inexperienced jacket meant. Every time he tried to reply, Johnson choked up, preventing again tears.

“I’m sorry,” he mentioned apologizing greater than as soon as. “It’s hard to talk. I’ve never this much trouble gathering myself.”

Not on a golf course, maybe, as a result of contained in the ropes, Johnson knew the place he was headed. But at age 36, he once more confronted the query of whether or not all that expertise can be sufficient when it mattered most, and eventually answered it by proving how a lot it mattered to him.
