Dustin Johnson claimed his third win of 2016 in style at the BMW Championship and his new putter was on fire.

DJ added the TaylorMade Spider Limited putter to the bag late on Wednesday night and immediately went on to shoot a new course record during the first round.

He gained a whopping 3.927 shots on the field on the greens alone after averaging just 0.257 for the season before the event.
