After three-putting last year to allow Jordan Speith to win the last US Open, Johnson’s wait was finally over, after having come so close to tasting victory, he made sure he left Oakmont Country Club a champion.

After taking a few practice strokes, Johnson prepared for the six-foot putt, as he set up, the ball had moved backwards, alerting nearby officials, although Johnson made it clear he was not responsible for the movement of the ball.

The officials, however, indicated that, according to replays, Johnson would need to provide a valid explanation as to why the ball moved, otherwise he would face a penalty stroke at the end of the round. The penalty stroke had later been confirmed, although it didn’t faze Johnson.
