SunstarTV Bureau: Golf player Dustin Johnson finally fetched an elusive second major title with a five-stroke victory at the Masters on Sunday.
Overcoming, an unstable start he reached the finals with a tournament-record low score at Augusta National.
American Johnson led throughout, only by one stroke early, and did not drop a shot in the final 13 holes on his way to a four-under-par 68 and an unprecedented 20-under-par 268 total.
Australian Cameron Smith and South Korean Im Sung-jae kept Johnson both shot 69 to tie for second on 15-under, but in the end they were no match for the champion, who played the final 13 holes bogey-free.
“It was a very difficult day,” an overwhelming Johnson said after having the famous Green Jacket draped over his shoulders by last year’s champion Tiger Woods.

“I was nervous all day, but I felt like I controlled myself very well, controlled the golf ball very well in difficult conditions,” commented world no. 1 Johnson.

Johnson, a native of Columbia, South Carolina, could not enjoy the magnificent reception from the gallery at the 18th green.
Instead, he received polite applause from the several hundred people allowed on-site, with paying patrons absent this year due to ongoing Coronavirus restrictions.
