The Masters Final Round Recap: Dustin Johnson sets Masters scoring record | CBS Sports HQ

CBS Sports HQ published this video item, entitled “The Masters Final Round Recap: Dustin Johnson sets Masters scoring record | CBS Sports HQ” – below is their description.

Dustin Johnson polished off an historic outing at the 54th Masters on Sunday, turning in a final-round 68 to claim his first green jacket and second career win at a major championship. Johnson’s victory came on the heels of a record-setting 54-hole pace after he posted 65s in two of his first three rounds on the week. His final score of 268 (-20) is the lowest to par in the history of the Masters and ties the lowest score at any major championship. Johnson played all of Round 3 bogey-free on Saturday but stumbled early Sunday out of the gates, bogeying Nos. 4 and 5 as his lead slipped to within an uncomfortable margin. But as he did all week, Johnson showed his mettle by playing the final 13 holes bogey-free, making birdies on 6, 8, 13, 14 and 15 to pad his lead and comfortably cruise to the win. His five-stroke margin of victory is the largest since Tiger Woods’ 12-stroke victory lap at the 1997 Masters. Runner-up finishers Sungjae Im and Cameron Smith kept things interesting late into Sunday. Im posted the lowest score ever by a player in his Masters debut, and Smith became the first golfer in the history of the Masters to post four rounds in the 60s. Still, Johnson’s brilliance would not be denied. He closed the weekend at 11 under through his final 36 holes, and he tactically tore apart the challenge of Augusta National, tying a Masters record for most greens in regulation in at least the last 35 years, per Justin Ray. For Johnson, who previously had won just one major championship at the 2016 U.S. Open, it’s a redemptive performance. He has, on four separate occasions, finished second or tied for second at major championships, including last year when he finished T2 at the Masters.
