Dustin Johnson's historic Masters victory has been a long time coming for the SC native, who has reigned as the world number one golfer for over 100 separate weeks, and previously placed in the top ten of 15 majors.

The victory, however, will go a long way to cementing the 36-year-old Johnson's reputation as a pre-eminent player of his generation. It's also the first time that two majors have been won by five or more shots in the same year since Woods followed a 15-shot win at the USA open with an eight-shot win at The Open in 2000.

He previously won the 2016 U.S. Open, but before Sunday was 0-4 when leading into the final round at majors and had a reputation of frequently not rising to the occasion in the biggest moments.

This year's journey to the 84th Masters added a new hiccup - a coronavirus diagnosis that left Johnson quarantined for 11 days in October.

Johnson's victory makes him the first world No 1 to win the Masters since Tiger Woods won his fourth Green Jacket in 2002, with the Johnson the first world No 1 to claim any major since Rory McIlroy's PGA Championship success in 2014. The Masters to me is the biggest tournament, the one I wanted to win the most.

Augusta, Nov 16 (IANS) World number one Dustin Johnson won the Augusta Masters by five strokes as he finished with a record-breaking low score of 20 under par. "To finally have the dream come true, I think that's why you see all that emotion". The Chiefs signed a rookie in Tommy Townsend to handle punting duties and hold on field goals and extra points, and undrafted rookie Tershawn Wharton has been a surprise at defensive tackle."They work hard, they have continued to improve".
