Dustin ends wait for a Major with victory at Oakmont

Dustin Johnson managed to overcome a farcical penalty shot decision to claim a fine victory at the US Open on Sunday.

The American shot a round of 68 to finish five under for the competition but was given a controversial one-shot penalty after his ball moved slightly when he was addressing a put at the fifth hole.

Johnson was initially absolved of any wrongdoing but was then given the penalty after he had completed his round.

Having capitalised on overnight leader Shane Lowry’s capitulation at Oakmont in the final round, Johnson eventually managed to finish three shots clear of the Irishman.

Speaking after his victory which saw him land his first major title, Johnson claimed he was not affected by the intervention from officials during his final round.

“At that point, I just thought I’d deal with it when I’m done,” he told reporters. “I tried to block it out and not let it bother me. Who cares, it doesn’t matter any more.”
