Dustin Johnson Overcomes Controversy to Win U.S. Open
Dustin Johnson overcame a controversial ruling to win his first major by three shots, the 2016 U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club.

OAKMONT, Pa. -- The major championship monkey is off the back of Dustin Johnson. After heartbreak at last year's U.S. Open, Johnson shot a Sunday 69 to chase down 54-hole leader Shane Lowry and win at historic Oakmont. 

Johnson finished at four under for the tournament despite a bizarre situation where a penalty was assessed retroactively for the USGA deciding Johnson caused his ball to move on the fifth green. Originally, Johnson called a rules official over to explain the ball had moved but he hadn't touched it. The USGA later informed Johnson that they believed the ball had moved, and he was likely to be assessed a penalty. 

But that didn't happen until the 12th tee with the intent being that Johnson know he was likely to be assesed the penalty and that he should know that as he finished his round.. The USGA also notified the rest of players for the same reason. 

The play was reviewed and ultimately ruled -- after Johnson finished his round -- the penalty would be assessed. But a birdie on 18 and an utter collapse by Lowry made the penalty moot, as Johnson won by three strokes. World No. 1 Jason Day shot a 66 to get to one over for the tournament. 

Here's a look at the final leaderboard.
