Johnson Won’t Repeat Blunder On Whistling Straits Return

Johnson Won’t Repeat Blunder On Whistling Straits Return

Don’t expect to see what you saw from Dustin Johnson on Whistling Straits any time soon, the golfer has promised to do whatever it takes so as to ensure that the blunders he made five years ago will never happen again especially when he will be returning to the shores of Lake Michigan for these year’s U.S. PGA Championship which is set for August.

Johnson, 30, is fresh from picking up the top price at last Sunday’s elite WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral. This victory, which took the golfer to seventh in the world rankings, was his first since the 30 year old golfer decided to take a 6 month break from the game for what he termed as “personal challenges.”

The win on Sunday has given the golfer renewed confidence that he hopes will propel him during the U.S. PGA Championship so as for him to win his first major title, after he lost the title to Martin Kaymer at 2010’s U.S. PGA Championship.

While speaking to reporters during a media event in Miami, Johnson said that, "I played well five years ago at Whistling Straits but I won't be grounding my club anywhere I shouldn't be grounding it."
During the Championship back in 2010, Johnson had a number of misfortunes. For instance while he was leading by one shot he grounded his club in a waste area while he was at the 72nd hole a move that saw him handed a two stroke penalty.

"Standing there over my second shot at 18 on that Sunday I didn't think I was standing in a sand trap," he said.

"There was just so much spectator rubbish in that bunker like candy wrappers, a Gatorade bottle, beer cans and all kinds of stuff including plenty of foot prints," added Johnson.
