Dustin Johnson clinches maiden Major golf title at US Open 2016

Dustin Johnson clinches maiden Major golf title at US Open 2016
24 June 2016 Current Affairs: US Golfer Dustin Johnson claimed his maiden Major golf title registering a three-stroke victory in the 116th US Open  ,although not without a farcical drama early in the fourth and final round.

The World No.6 carded a final-round 69  one of seven sub-70 scores posted on Sunday -- for a 72-hole total of four-under 276 to end an 0-for-28 drought in Majors. The last edition's runner-up won by three strokes over Shane Lowry (76), Jim Furyk (66) and Scott Piercy (69).

Seven of the nine US Open champions at Oakmont Country Club have been first-time Major winners, the exceptions being Ben Hogan (1953) and Larry Nelson (1983).

Dustin also joined Bob Jones (1923, '26, '29), Jack Nicklaus (1972), Payne Stewart (1999) and Tiger Woods (2008) as US Open champions who were runners-up the previous year.

He could relate to what happened to Lowry, who had returned to Oakmont early Sunday to complete the suspended third round. A 65 gave the three-time PGA European Tour winner a four-stroke cushion over unheralded PGA Tour rookie Andrew Landry and Johnson.

Lowry, who only had one three-putt green through 54 holes, had three on Sunday in a round in which he couldn't sustain any momentum. The 29-year-old went out in three-over 38 and registered his only birdie on the par-five 12th, finishing with a six-over 76.

Landry, a local and sectional qualifier whose best finish in 11 PGA Tour events was last week's tie for 41st in the FedEx St. Jude Classic, was two strokes worse.

India's campaign at the year's second Major had ended on Friday with both Anirban Lahiri and Jeev Milkha Singh missing out on the halfway cut.
