When Dustin Johnson pulls on his Adidas golf clothing and heads out to the first tee at Congressional Country Club on Thursday he will be trying to banish the memories of his final round meltdown at Pebble Beach in 2010.
The 26-year-old led the field by three shots going into the final round and as a Pebble Beach specialist many people were handing him the trophy.
However, a triple bogey on the second, which triggered three cringe-worthy holes played at six-over par, left him back in the pack.
He failed to improve and ended up shooting an 82, handing the win to Irishman Graeme McDowell.
"They've all done it. It's a learning process that I think everybody is going to go through at least once in their career. So you can't look at it as a bad thing," Johnson said of his Pebble Beach experience.
"Last year I had a chance to win," he said, "and hopefully I'll have one again this year."
