Why does Dustin Johnson continue spitting on the golf course? He represents the Unites States, and he hardly presents the most positive image of our country. Although I admire his game--his length off the tee and his accurate approach shots--I find it hard to support someone who is constantly spitting in public. It gives a terrible image to our young golfers as well. Dustin, can you change your ways, please? I'd like to root for you, but I just can't bring myself to do so right now.
I mean, come ON…
Hear me out. Suppose that the Rules Official correctly (IMO) ruled that Dustin Johnson earned a penalty stroke on the 5th green for causing his ball to move. I think there is a good chance - not a certainty - that he collapses a bit and/or Lowry plays well enough at that point that the outcome changes. Maybe they tie, maybe DJ loses outright… something. Consider that DJ probably played the last 13 holes not thinking he'd be penalized because he doesn't understand the rule, and how his mind set and decisions might have changed if he had been penalized. At the time, he'd have only been -3 while Lowry would have been -6. I will say it this way again. There is a good chance that because a penalty was not assessed initially and DJ thought he would not incur a penalty, it affected the play of DJ, Lowry, and others over the remaining 13+ holes. In other words, DJ might have LOST the U.S. Open if he had been assessed a penalty at the 5th hole instead of after he'd won by 3/4.
