You just know that if the stroke doesn't matter, the USGA will take it away anyway ... to defend the "integrity" of the sport

Not that I'm complaining but if you have to pull your dress down after every step it might be a bit too short.

So she didn't get her position as president of the USGA for her public speaking skills.

Had Fathers Day grilling responsibilities so I'm just checking back in. But that was awesome. I'm not a one golfer fan right now. I like DJ, Rory, Jordan, Day, etc. Really glad to see DJ win one, loved seeing him put the hammer down and win it rather than being the guy who loses it the least.

He was loose a few holes after that conversation with the USGA, but damn if he didn't hit his best shots of the day on the last few holes. Still amazed that his game rises to the top on Open venues but he's established that the past few years. He deserved this one.

Jack Nicklaus weighed in on the controversy.

"I told (Dustin Johnson) what you did with all that crap thrown at you was pretty good," he told ESPN.com's Ian O'Connor.

He also said that the USGA telling Johnson he may face a penalty during his round "terrible" and "very unfair."

Nope, pretty awesome week all things considered. Dream come true. Just hope it gives him some more confidence moving forward, and he can find a way to get a couple really good finishes and lock up his card for next season.

I'm assuming he went through qualifying. That is a huge accomplishment and a real hard process to go through. He had to be on at Sectional and Regional and obviously this week. Can't even have a bad nine and do what he did. Hope it moves him closer to getting a card.

Very glad to see DJ exorcise his demons, professionally today and seemingly personal to get back to this point. It's simply amazing to watch him hit a golf ball. I found one of the best things about the Fox coverage was the tech and stats they had with the trackman and his numbers, even compared to his peers, were mind boggling. That was an amazingly impressive close out today - Open demons from last year and others, penalty stroke hanging over his head and then the camera guy interrupts you as you stand over your final approach, but you nail it to five feet. Just a fantastic win.
