Dustin Johnson put together an incredible final round at the Shell Houston Open. It just wasn't quite enough.
Johnson used an eagle at the par-5 15th (watch above) en route to a 7-under 65 to post 14 under on Sunday. He was one shot behind co-leaders D.A. Points and Billy Horschel when he finished. However, Henrik Stenson posted 15 under shortly after.
Johnson, who missed cuts in his only two previous appearances at Redstone in 2008 and '09, carded seven birdies, an eagle and two bogeys on his round and is currently tied for third place.
Despite admitting that he left some shots on the golf course, Johnson said he was pleased with his performance -- his last before the Masters.
"I knew I was going to have to come out and do something special today if I wanted to even have a chance," Johnson said. "I played really well, 7-under on Sunday, I'll take that anywhere, anytime, and be happy with it. You know, obviously I left a few shots out there, but, you know, that's golf."
