USGA comment on Johnson-gate

USGA official Jeff Hall: “Well the ball moved and we believed it was due to Dustin’s actions.

"I was out on the golf course following some groups, so I had to make my way in to see it.

"There were certain actions we had to analyse. The first time we had the opportunity to speak to Dustin was the 12th hole.

"We did inform the balance of the field.

"We decided not to review it with Dustin at the media tent on the 13th hole and instead wait till the end.”

'Yes it did'

Dustin Johnson is US Open champion

"It's really sweet to get that major championship," says Dustin Johnson.

On the controversy which began on the fifth hole and became real on the 12th tee box: "At that point I just thought deal with it when I'm done. I just tried to block it out. It didn't bother me so it was definitely nice. I knew when they (officials) walked up on 12 they said they'd been watching it in the trailer but who cares, it doesn't matter any more right?

"I just had to stay focused, try to not hit any shots I wasn't focused on. Hit fairways and greens. I stuck to my game plan. I stuck with it all week and drove it beautifully.

"After everything that's happened to me and all thee majors there is always that little voice saying 'is it ever going to happen' and yes it did happen."

Final leaderboard

-4 Dustin Johnson (US)

-1 Shane Lowry (Ire)  Scott Piercy (US), Jim Furyk (US),

E Sergio Garcia (Spa), Branden Grace (SA)

A win for DJ, another top 10 for Sergio and Furyk, while Branden Grace continues to knock at the door.

A day to forget for Lee Westwood, a week to forget for Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth.

Shane Lowry speaks...

Lowry -1 (18)

Joint runner-up Shane Lowry speaks and the first subject under discussion is about how the controversy surrounding Dustin Johnson impacted upon him.

"It didn't affect me much at all," says Lowry. "I just feel like I let it go today. I'm very disappointed today. The more I think about it the more upset I'm getting. It's going to be a tough few days. I led by four. I was tied for the lead with five holes to play. I am definitely good enough to win one of these.

"This one is going to be hard to take.

"I wish I could forget about it but I have a corporate day in Dublin tomorrow so I have to play golf. That's going to be great fun, people asking me how I let the lead slip.

"If you'd have given me second at the start of the week I'd probably have taken it but I stand here now and I'm not happy.

"You win some, you lose some and I'll definitely be back."

 A look back through the Dustin Johnson card shows up five bogeys and a double all week. That may not sound too flash but on this course, it's fantastic.

Oakmont showed its teeth on times - Lee Westwood felt its force today - but Johnson smiled back at it.

His average drive came in at 317 yards. The field averaged around 276, so for every rip off the tee he's stealing serious yardage. That's what makes him Dustin Johnson. That's what makes him US Open champion.

Boos for the rulemakers

Dustin Johnson is US open champion

The US Open champion is asked about the moment he was told he may face a one-shot penalty for seeing his ball move on the fifth green. As he does the crowd at Oakmont boo to let the rulemakers know they are not too happy with how things were handled.

"They said we would look at it when we got done," says Johnson. "So I just tried to focus on what I was doing and not worry on the penalty stroke.

On his shot to within three feet on 18: "It was a very nice way to finish. It may have been once of the best shots I've ever hit under the circumstance.

"The best Father's Day ever."

Johnson reacts

Dustin Johnson stands with the Nicklaus medal on as a US Open winner and gives his first words as a major winner: "I had a lot of support out there. Pittsburgh fans are great. It was very nice to have the support, it helped me coming down the stretch.

"It hasn't quite sunk in yet. it feels great. I've been here a bunch of times and haven't quite got it done. It feels really good."

Johnson's time

And it's trophy time. Dustin Johnson gets the beautiful US Open trophy. It shimmers under the flash lights, his wife Paulina looks on and wipes away a few tears. This image has been some time in the making.

What makes a champion?

One shot penalty... whatever

Jay Townsend

Former American professional golfer on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

“The only thing I have to say to that decision from the USGA is what teenagers say to their parents: whatever!”

Players congratulate Dustin

Congrats @DJohnsonPGA .. You earned it buddy

Massive congrats @DJohnsonPGA! The wait is over! Feel for @ShaneLowryGolf but he'll come back stronger from this experience.

Congrats @DJohnsonPGA deserved @usopengolf champion - especially after all the mayhem

Gutted for @ShaneLowryGolf but has a couple of Majors in him. Congrats to @DJohnsonPGA. Simply the most talented athlete ever to play golf.

'Lowry will take positives'

Lowry -1 (18)

Jay Townsend

Former American professional golfer on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

"He will be upset with himself in the short term because he let a four stroke lead slip, but in a few days or weeks time, he'll be pleased at how well he has played and know that he can go on to better things."

Lowry -1 (18), Landry +5 (18)

As his last putt sinks, Shane Lowry puts his hand to his face and takes a deep breath. It's the sigh of a frustrated man. A six-over-par round today.

His playing partner Andrew Landry ended eight over on Sunday, five over in all.

Lowry finishes

Lowry -1 (18)

Shane Lowry putts up the hill on 18 and leaves a tap-in for par. His dreams of winning a major will have to wait a little longer but it certainly looks like he has the game to go all the way now. Lowry will rue some moments today but he's been a credit to Ireland and European golf on this brute of a course.

One shot penalty for Johnson

Iain Carter

BBC golf correspondent at Oakmont Country Club

"Dustin has been penalised one shot for making his ball move on the fifth. He has finished four under par. That's that." 

Johnson gets a penalty

One stroke added to his score

It will not make a difference now but how controversial could this have been?

We are hearing Dustin Johnson will get a one-stroke penalty as a result of the ball moving before he struck it on the fifth green.

Good job he won by more than one I guess.

The USGA will have questions to answer on their handling of this.

You can always trust the sporting gods to right where humans with rules make it go wrong. DJ a deserving champ. #USOpen #bbcgolf

Well done @DJohnsonPGA great win under atrocious circumstances. @USGA hang your head in shame. Embarrassing. #USOpen #bbcgolf

#bbcgolf go on @USGA give him the penalty he doesn't deserve. that Shot on the 18th confirms @DJohnsonPGA is the winner regardless.

Symmetry on the fairways

The last US Open here in 2007 was won at 5 over par and now this one here is won at five under par. 

Also Angel Cabrera won from four shots behind, and Dustin has won today from four shots behind.

Johnson -5 (18)

Dustin Johnson is in the scoring hut signing his card. The process seems fluid, certainly not one where controversy looks to be present.

Johnson will move third in the world rankings, above Rory McIlroy.

DJ unchained

Jay Townsend

Former American professional golfer on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

“There are a lot of people who feel Dustin would win a bunch of majors once he won one. Maybe this will take the pressure off Dustin and as he is arguably the most naturally talented American golfer playing now, there is no telling what he can achieve from here.”

Lowry -1 (17)

So let us be clear. The only way Dustin Johnson can be denied a major title is if he is docked two strokes by the USGA and Shane Lowry eagles the final hole of the week.

Lowry just curled in a cracking par save on 17.

It would be freakish and on this occasion, it's probably safe to say stranger things have never happened.

Dustin Johnson - A major champion

"Dustin will celebrate his 32nd birthday on Wednesday and now he is about to win the US Open. That approach shot was stunning. It was so straight. The most important shot of his life and he nailed it."

Lowry -1 (16)

Back down on 17 Shane Lowry is about to post a number which could see him slip out of the top five.

A wayward drive, two chips, he's still going and not in a good way.

Will Dustin finally win a major

Johnson -4 (17)

Iain Carter

BBC golf correspondent at Oakmont Country Club

"He had a putt to win the US Open 12 months ago. That's one of several opportunities he's had to win one. But he now stands on the 18th fairway with an opportunity to finally win a Major." 

Johnson -4 (17)

Dustin Johnson's partner Paulina Gretzky - daughter of ice hockey legend Wayne - is at the side of the 18th green waiting for her man with their first child in her arms.

The 18-time major winner Jack Nicklaus has a few words for the young child as things are getting exciting around the final green. There's an energy, the champion is present.

Johnson-gate - What you're saying

Lowry had been struggling, but the lack of ruling from @USGA clearly having an affect on him as well. This has been ruined. #USOpen #bbcgolf

Shane Lowry clearly affected too..This is not fun to watch anymore because you're really feeling for both players right now😕#USOpen #bbcGolf

#bbcgolf This frace @usopengolf does nothing for the image of golf - just turns people OFF

What a shot!

Johnson -4 (17)

Two practice swings for Dustin Johnson as the crowds line this 18th green and he stands in the middle of the fairway.

He sticks his shot to within two three feet. What a shot, what swagger, he's going to win the US Open.

Sympathy for Westwood

Westwood +8 (17)

Iain Carter

BBC golf correspondent at Oakmont Country Club

“Poor old Lee Westwood. This is the second time he has marked the card of a major winner. He had the card of Danny Willett at The Masters. You will want him on your card at Troon.”

Johnson -4 (17)

The galleries here are vocal to say the least and right now, it's all about Dustin Johnson as far as they are concerned.

So this is what it comes down to. Shane Lowry is in trouble on 17. Dustin Johnson, you've fallen short at the death on a number of occasions, it's all on you...
