Both the official and his opponent, Hagen tried to tell him not to do it, but he knew it was the right thing to do. He ended up losing this tournament by 1 stroke in the end. Everyone had said that he should have won without the penalty, but he still believed that he lost by the rules of golf.

As I walked up to hit my next shot off the tee box I took a deep breath, I set up to my golf ball, and I hit it straight down the middle.

You will have good days and bad days, but you can’t let that destroy your confidence.

Its 2nd and 12 in the 3rd quarter and we are winning by 4. Down set hut, the person I 'm guarding runs deep and I drop back.

Some things that I have learned from Dustin Johnson’s career is that you should think about everything before you do it. You never want to do something bad and regret it
As a freshman who just came to US for less than a week, I decided to join the school Junior Varsity Golf team, a sport that I have only seen on TV before. I don’t know what gives me the courage to join team. However, I’m very thankful that I made the decision.
