I know most of you are done with Bunker-Gate and I promise this is the last post on the debacle (until something else intriguing pops up), but I emailed a few times with Jim McLean, teacher to Erik Compton, Cristie Kerr and Alexis Thompson, on the issue.

Photographer (and my friend) Allan Henry of Golf Chronicles / US Presswire was kneeling four to five feet behind Dustin Johnson when he grounded his club on the 18th hole. Allan was so close to DJ that he was almost hit by DJ’s club in one of his practice swings. When he first arrived at […]

Dustin Johnson has played in the final group at two major championships this season. He’s also made two heartbreaking blunders. Similar to his reaction after the US Open, he remained calm and didn’t throw any tantrums when he was alerted on the ruling (which would have been understandable) — DJ accepted his mistake with class, […]

Embed from Getty Images Dustin Johnson wasn’t just playing the hardest U.S. Open venue on the planet, Oakmont, but he also had forces gravitating against him. Again. At this point, he nearly expects to experience some type of outside forces working against him while he’s in contention at a major championship in the final round.

View image | gettyimages.com Rewind to five years ago when the PGA Championship was last held at Whistling Straits. What do you remember more clearly? Martin Kaymer hoisting the Wanamaker Trophy after beating Bubba Watson in a four-hole playoff? Or Dustin Johnson pushing his drive way right on the 72nd hole and his ball ending […]

BRACE YOURSELF. Sandy-area gate is about to break out… Well, I hate say this —  and hoped I wouldn’t have to — but told ya so. After walking the course on Wednesday,  I had this sinking feeling in my stomach (“Whistling Straits but flat”) that there would be some type of controversial or unfortunate rules […]

Okay, I’m already sick of the above-mentioned Dustin Johnson crack in connection to the PGA of America’s “Condition of Play” announcement for the 94th PGA Championship. Of course, the DJ-bunker joke is referencing his unfortunate mistake in 2010 at Whistling Straits, where it turned out he grounded his club in the whole “bunker-not-a-bunker” debacle, which […]

Dustin Johnson and Bobby Brown are among the many who feel badly for Kyle Stanley’s untimely implosion at the Farmers Insurance Open last Sunday. Stanley entered the last hole in regulation with a three-shot lead before imploding with a triple-bogey and then eventually losing in a playoff against Brandt Snedeker. During the difficult last few […]

Just short of a year ago, Dustin Johnson made a costly blunder on the 72nd hole at Whistling Straits in the infamous bunker-not-a-bunker incident at the ’10 PGA Championship. He incurred a two-shot penalty to miss joining Martin Kaymer and Bubba Watson in a playoff for the major title, but as we’ve learned, DJ isn’t […]

It’s never too early to start making Masters prognostications. Usually, I don’t begin thinking about this until Tuesday during the week of the tournament, but it’s a slow news day and I’m tired of beating my head against the wall, not to mention Reader Kevin is already obsessing over his Fantasy Golf picks for Augusta […]
