Dustin Johnson basks in Masters victory

November 18, 2020 04:07 PM

To the victor goes the spoils, and Dustin Johnson is the new king of Augusta National. D.J. stole the show, setting a Masters scoring record in the process. His closest pursuers were two young stars from last December's International Presidents Cup squad who appear ready to change the narrative of the biennial event.

Bryson DeChambeau made headlines early in Masters week by saying the course would play as a par 67 for him. With a 7 on his scorecard in each of the first two days, the U.S. Open champion was humbled by Augusta as he limped into the weekend, making the cut on the number.

The Masters, like the World Series, Stanley Cup and NBA Finals, posted record-low ratings. Chalk it up to a runaway victory, a new spot on the calendar or the unfortunate task of competing with football for air time, but we can agree on one thing: April can't come soon enough.
