• Jason Day has a nightmare finish to hand DJ the title
• The American moves up to world No.2 with the result
DUSTIN JOHNSON | JASON DAY
A nightmare finish from Jason Day gifted Dustin Johnson his second win in as many starts at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
The Aussie played the final four holes in four-over-par to drop down the leaderboard from sole leader on seven-under-par, with Johnson there to seize the opportunity to win on six-under-par and one clear of Scott Piercy.
How DJ won it
With it looking like a shootout between Johnson and Day for the title, it was this moment – which resulted in a double-bogey – from the Aussie on the par-5 16th which helped hand Johnson the title.
What they said
Dustin Johnson: “I feel great. I feel like my game is where it has been all year. I feel like I've been playing really solid all year. I've been driving it great. I've been wedging it good. It's just I haven't been putting quite as well as I'd like to, and the last couple weeks I've just putted a little bit better, and the game shows it.”
Jason Day (T3): “To be honest, I played pretty good golf up until 16. I really had two bad holes. I mean, I had a couple bogeys, but really kind of one hole that derailed me, which was 16. It’s obviously disappointing to not get the win here, but I feel like it's coming around nicely.
Jordan Spieth (T3): “This was a very solid day and a nice progression from the beginning of the week. Each day got a little better, which was what I told y'all I wanted to do from the start.”
