Off the Tee: A First Time Major Winner and a First Time PGA Tour Winner
What a difference a year makes for Dustin Johnson.
After a epic collapse at Chamber's Bay in the 2015 U.S. Open, Johnson bounced back to win the 2016 U.S. Open, in the process capturing his first major win.
In the edition of 'Off The Tee', I talk with Joel Harrington from 4 Deep Golf Blog about Johnson's triumph, which was not without its share of controversy..
In this discussion with Joel:
- A recap of Johnson's win at Oakmont. Including player reaction and Joel's take on the one-stroke penalty assessed to Johnson on the 5th green.
- Billy Hurley's emotional win at the Quicken Loans National.
- Historic flooding in West Virginia has forced the PGA to cancel next month's Greenbrier Classic.
- More big name players are skipping the Summer Olympics. The latest? Rory McIlroy, Jason Day, and Shane Lowry.
- Will Tiger Woods play in 2016?
