‘A Dream Come True’: Dustin Johnson Wins The Masters
Add a green jacket to Dustin Johnson‘s closet and a Masters tournament win to his already accomplished resume.
Johnson finished the final round at four-under, putting him at twenty-under on Sunday. That was good enough for a five-stroke lead and win from the field.
Currently first in the FedEx Cup Rankings, Johnson now has 24 career PGA tour victories.
Tiger Woods, 2019’s Masters winner, threw the green jacket on Thomas in what has become a Masters tradition.
“It’s a dream come true, as a kid always dreamed about being a Masters champion,” Thomas said as he was speechless and overwhelmed with emotion in an interview afterward. “It’s just incredible, obviously, as you can tell.”
Johnson was quick to give a shoutout to his team and sponsors, as well when celebrating his historic win.
“The success I’ve had wouldn’t be possible without an amazing team and sponsors,” Johnson posted in a tweet. “Thank you for believing in and supporting me over the years.”
Cameron Smith and Im Sung-jae tied for second place and Justin Thomas rounded out the top of the field finishing in fourth place.
