OAKMONT, Pa. — Dustin Johnson shot a 1-under 69 and came from four shots back to win the U.S. Open for his first major championship on Sunday at Oakmont Country Club.
Johnson led the field in driving distance at Oakmont, averaging 316 yards off the tee with a TaylorMade M1 driver that's been in his bag since last year's BMW Championship.
Throughout the week, Johnson used driver to produce some of the longest, and most important, shots of the week, including a 378-yard drive on the opening hole of the final round. Johnson also used driver on the 18th, launching a towering 303-yard tee shot that found the center of the fairway, setting up one final birdie.
Johnson's big stick (D4 swingweight) has 10.5 degrees of loft but is set to 11 degrees on the loft sleeve. The two adjustable weights in the sole are both set in the neutral position.
TaylorMade's M1 driver has a lightweight carbon composite crown that weighs 10 grams, and two sliding weight tracks in the sole that run from heel to toe and from the front of the club to the back.
With a combined weight of 25 grams, the two tracks in the sole allow face angle and launch to be altered based on the position of the weights.
