Sights and Sounds from the 2016 Bridgestone Invitational

The 2016 Bridgestone Invitational fell on Independence Day weekend this year, and playing the right roles, Justin Johnson and Jason Day were shooting off fireworks coming down the stretch on Sunday. 

 

Johnson outlasted Day and came from behind to win his second tournament of the season, making him the only American to win in the last seven WGC events.

Sights and Sounds from Championship Sunday at the 2016 U.S. Open

Dustin Johnson overcame a five-stroke final day deficit, battled an unfair USGA rules violation fiasco mid-round, and vaporized years of major championship heartache by winning the 2016 U.S. Open Sunday evening at Oakmont Country Club. 

 

Here are some pictures and videos from Championship Sunday at the 2016 U.S. Open. 

Sights and Sounds from the 2016 U.S. Open Wednesday Practice Round

Oakmont Country Club is widely considered to be the "Gold Standard" of championship golf, and 2016 marks the ninth time the U.S. Open will be played here. 

 

Jack Nicklaus won his first major here, Johnny Miller's final round 63 is one of the greatest final rounds in championship history, and I spent the day Wednesday walking the course, observing the players, and coming to my own conclusion that Oakmont might be possibly be the most difficult course in the world.

2016 Bridgestone Invitational Giveaway: Autographed Golf Balls

The Bridgestone Invitational is one of my favorite events of the season.  It's a world class, extremely strong field, with no cut line.  Firestone is a traditional layout, playing at brutal 7,400 yards.  And of course there's the world famous, 667-yard, Par 5, No. 16, also known as "The Monster." 

 

And of course whenever I'm traveling on Tour, I like to pick something up for my readers.  So this week I'll be giving away golf balls signed by players in the field.

Dustin Johnson TaylorMade Tour Preferred EF Wedge Good Karma U.S. Open Giveaway

I probably like Dustin Johnson for the same reasons you do.  He's a freakish athlete with a one of a kind swagger.  It's ridiculously thrilling to watch him play.  And of course he's a bit of an eccentric character. 

I also like D.J. however because he's endured more heartbreak than anyone should have to endure in major championships.  And so Saturday, I took matters into my own hands.




Throwing some good karma out into the universe, I tweeted (and posted on Instagram) that I'd give away the same TaylorMade Tour Preferred EF wedge Johnson uses if he wins the U.S. Open.  And you know what happened yesterday.

USGA Statement Regarding Dustin Johnson Ruling

The USGA wishes to congratulate Dustin Johnson on his victory and thank him, and the other players in the field, for their professionalism and grace throughout the championship. Dustin is a wonderful champion, a talented golfer and a gentleman. 

 

Our team at the USGA has seen and heard a great deal of discussion and debate about the ruling on Dustin’s ball moving during the final round of the 2016 U.S. Open Championship at Oakmont Country Club. In addition to the explanations we offered upon the conclusion of the final round, we add these comments.
