The Masters 2020: Dustin Johnson leads the finals in Augusta – live! | sport

Dustin Johnson enters the 2020 Masters Finals with a four-stroke lead over Im Sung-jae, Abraham Ancer and Cameron Smith. He should have this in the bag, really. He should. But it’s never that easy, is it. Ken Venturi had a four-stroke lead in the 1956 Masters, but ended up losing by one stroke to Jack Burke. Rory McIlroy went clear Sunday in 2011 and tied for 15th. And then there was Greg Norman in 1996. Oh Greg.DJ of course sent a big 54-hole lead to a major. He made the final round of the 2010 US Open at Pebble Beach three before Graeme McDowell, but lost six shots in the first four holes in a storm of O / B duffed chips and hoicks. He was subject to a strange collapse.

So nothing is certain. Everything is possible.

However. The DJ of 2020 is a very different beast than the one of 2010. He now has a major on his resume: the US Open 2016. He is world number one. His last six starts have seen him finish T2-W-2-W-T6-T2. And here is the real zinger: he has already shot 65 twice this week, yesterday’s flawless performance, one of the greatest rounds in Masters history, triggered by a 2-iron that almost came to fruition. only the second competitive albatross ever on this particular hole. He’s not doing anything wrong. Which guy. He really should shut this thing up.

And yet, anything can happen in the final round of a major. Last year alone, DJ himself came close to stalking Brooks Koepka, seven clear rounds after 54 holes at the PGA. He hasn’t quite managed to finish the job, but it shows what can happen when nerves set in … and the Masters doesn’t start until the last player reaches the 10th tee on Sunday, when the nervousness really goes off. . Im, Ancer, Smith, Dylan Frittelli, Justin Thomas, Sebastian Munoz, Patrick Reed, Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Koepka, Tommy Fleetwood and Hideki Matsuyama all have the game to pounce if the big moment overwhelms the big man. Whatever happens, it promises to be an unforgettable November afternoon. Good luck everyone and may your god of golf accompany you. May the best man become the 2020 Masters champion! It’s on!
