Dustin Johnson put on one of the best performances ever at the Masters.
Over the weekend, Dustin Johnson won his first ever Masters. And with the performance that he put on, don’t expect it to be his last.
Dustin Johnson recorded the best ever score at Augusta, beating the previous Masters record (held jointly by Tiger Woods, 1997, and Jordan Spieth, 2015) by two shots. Johnson beat the average winning score at The Masters by over 10 shots.
The American bogeyed just 5% of the holes he played, compared to a field average this year of 15%, while he managed to score under par on 28% of holes, compared to 15% amongst other players.
What makes Johnson's performance stand out even more compared to past winners is the convincing distance between him and second place. Historically, the Masters is a very close and competitive tournament.
In just over 70% of all Masters the winner has won by 2 shots or less. Johnson won in 2020 by 5 shots. This puts him in elite territory and amongst some of the other dominant Masters performances such as Woods in 1997 who won by 12 shots and Nicklaus in 1965 who won by 9. In the history of the Masters, there have only been 5 occasions where the winner won by more than 6 shots.
