How the Hole19 Community predicted the 2016 U.S. Open Champion
On Sunday June 19th, Dustin Johnson won the first major tournament of his career. Playing some fantastic golf in a course that dragged down great golfers like Jason Day, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy. The 31 year old golfer was able to overcome the difficulties on the course and on the rulings that cost him one stroke. Despite all, he was still able to finish 4-under par and take home the trophy.
