Dustin Johnson Stages Monumental Comeback at Oakmont
Using power, athleticism and sheer determination, Dustin Johnson put on a tee-to-green clinic en route to earning his elusive first Major championship – adding his name to a prestigious list of U.S. Open champions. His 10th career victory also marks his ninth consecutive season with a win on Tour. With 5 wins for the M Driver family in the last 6 PGA TOUR events, M further solidifies its standing as the most dominant driver combination on Tour.
From four shots back, Johnson overpowers Oakmont using TaylorMade Metalwoods, Irons & Golf Ball and wearing adidas Golf Apparel & Footwear
