Dustin Johnson wins thrilling and highly attended LIV Golf Tulsa Invitational
In a thrilling and exciting final day, which saw record-tying scores from some of the worlds top golfers, LIV Golf Tulsa did not disappoint.
The afternoon was not without drama, but it was Dustin Johnson who claimed the win on Sunday at Cedar Ridge Country Club marking him as the third two-time winner in LIV Golf, a feat that only Brooks Koepka and Talor Gooch have accomplished so far.
Branden Grace and Cameron Smith gave Johnson a good run for his money, as they went head to head with Johnson in a three-man playoff in front of the best-attended LIV Golf event held in the United States.
Grace's Stinger GC also won for the second time, sealing a victory by one stroke over the 4Aces team in an exciting finish in the team event. The game came down to Grace's par putt on the final hole, which led to their victory.
After a slow start to his season, Johnson's win places him sixth in the individual points standings, adding to his impressive season-long run.
“Next time I’d like to win without going into a playoff,” Johnson said. “Would be a lot less stressful.”
For the all-South African Stingers, it was a long time between wins, nearly a year since they won the inaugural LIV Golf Invitational tournament in London last June. They wore blue ribbons all week in memory of legendary South African golfer John Bland, who passed away Tuesday at the age of 77. “It’s amazing how these things happen,” said captain Louis Oosthuizen. “Blandy was an inspiration to all of us growing up watching him play … It was just nice to sort of know in the back of our minds that he was there with us this week.”
