Dustin Johnson at the Masters

Dustin Johnson did not just win the 2020 Masters on Sunday, he did so in historic fashion. Finishing with a 4-under 68 in Round 4, Johnson set a 72-hole scoring record of 20 under, the lowest score to par in the history of the Masters at Augusta National.

At 20 under, Johnson came a missed birdie putt on No. 18 away from setting the all-time scoring record at any major.

D.J. won the Masters by five strokes over second-place finishers Cameron Smith and Sungjae Im. That margin is the largest at Augusta National since Tiger Woods won the 1997 Masters by 12 strokes.

Johnson’s composite 268 was fueled by pair of 65s shot on Thursday and Saturday, though it did not conclude without some difficulty on Sunday. D.J. hit just two bogeys over his first 57 holes before bogeying Nos. 5 and 6 consecutively in Round 4. His lead dropped to a single stroke.

However, Johnson immediately atoned for those miscues with a pair of birdies to close the first nine. He cruised the rest of the way, finishing the second nine in 3 under.
