U.S. Open: Sunday's social round-up


Dustin Johnson survived a confusion-filled finish in Oakmont on Sunday to claim U.S. Open glory for the first time. 

After appearing to cause a ball to move on the fifth hole of his final round, Johnson had a potential penalty looming over his head until the end of the final round in Pennsylvania.

But the 31-year-old American held his nerve, eventually claiming a three-stroke win over Shane Lowry, Scott Piercy and Jim Furyk for his first major title.


Lowry, ranked 41st in the world, was the overnight leader heading into the final round and had a good omen to go with it. Angel Cabrera, who won in 2007, was also the world number 41. 

Tottenham star Harry Kane, who finished top-scorer in the Premier League in 2015-16, settled in for the final round ahead of England's Euro 2016 clash with Slovakia. His predictions were slightly off, however.

Security were out in force, including this accredited public safety officer.

Big-hitting Dustin was in the mood early and closed in on the leading pack.

Lowry, meanwhile, continued to struggle as the round went on, seeing his chances of victory slip away.

However, when news of a potential penalty to Johnson came to light, the world number two was not happy.

But Johnson held his nerve, and Republican candidate for United States president Donald Trump believes it is the first of more success to come.

Happy Father's Day, Dustin!
