I guess you could say that… *snickers*… Dustin Johnson was on a roll.
On the par four 10th hole at the Memorial on Sunday, Dustin Johnson hit one of the most memorable shots of his career. But it wasn’t exactly a good shot. Take a look for yourself:

I like the guy who was trying to direct the ball into the drain. What an asshole. Somebody had some $$$ on Johnson blowing up in his final round, which is one of the safest bets in golf. You can always make money by betting against Johnson on a Sunday. It’s the closest thing to a sure thing out there.
DJ is just taking a page out of the Steve Holt Golf Guide (available now on Amazon for $0.35) by using the cart path to his advantage. It’s almost as effective as using the grandstand seats as a backboard.
Was DJ’s shot planned? Probably not. But it ended up working pretty well for him. Johnson finished the hole with a bogey, which is solid considering the fact that he was hitting his second shot from a shrubbery.
William McGirt eventually won the tournament in a playoff with Jon Curran. Maybe next time, Deej..
