The only surprise is why it took Dustin Johnson so long to win his second major. Johnson, one of golf’s top players for the past decade, finally won another when he took home the coveted green jacket at Augusta National this past November. Most analysts agree that when Johnson is on top of his game, only Rory McIlroy poses a threat to take him down. Despite the fact that Cameron Smith and Sungjae Im tied for runner-up honors, neither really threatened during the final nine as Johnson was on cruise control. For Johnson, this victory represents an important milestone in his stellar career. For a man of such accomplishment and at times domination, it didn’t seem right that his career major total was stuck at one. Johnson becomes only one of 23 golfers in history with at least 24 PGA Tour wins and two majors. Predictions of the floodgates opening are common for players who achieve monumental victories, but rarely come true, but in Johnson’s case, it seems logical that he’s not done winning major titles and should add a few more to that total in the coming years.
