OAKMONT, PA – Dustin Johnson’s final round at a major included another visit by a rules official, but unlike at 2010 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits, this time it didn’t cost DJ his first major.

Playing with a potential one-stroke penalty from the fifth hole looming over him, Johnson charged into the lead on the back nine to finish his round with what appeared to be a five-under score for the championship.

In the end, the penalty was assessed and history will show Johnson finished at four-under 276 – still three shots better than Jim Furyk, Scott Piercy and Shane Lowry.
