Dustin Johnson did not just win the 2020 Masters on Sunday, he did so in historic fashion. Finishing with a 4-under 68 in Round 4, Johnson set a 72-hole scoring record of 20 under, the lowest score to par in the history of the Masters at Augusta National.
At 20 under, Johnson also tied the mark for lowest score to par in major championship history. He was a missed birdie putt on No. 18 away from breaking it.
D.J. won the Masters by five strokes over second-place finishers Cameron Smith and Sungjae Im. That margin is the largest at Augusta National since Tiger Woods won the 1997 Masters by 12 strokes.

Kansas City Chiefs right guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif is now in the Pro Football Hall of Fame — not for his work on the Chiefs offensive line, but for his work on the front lines fighting COVID-19.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame tweeted a photo of some of its newest artifacts Saturday — including Duvernay-Tardif’s medical scrubs and lab coat.
Duvernay-Tardif graduated from McGill University School of Medicine in 2018, and after winning the Super Bowl, went home to his native Canada to work as an orderly at a long-term care facility about an hour away from Montreal.
While he’s Dr. Duvernay-Tardif officially, he still must complete his residency requirements. Until that is complete, his medical responsibilities were somewhat limited, but still extremely valid as hospitals and facilities across the country face shortages of qualified medical staff.
He opted out of the season in July, becoming the first NFL player to do so. At the time he said, “This is one of the most difficult decisions I have had to make in my life but I must follow my convictions and do what I believe is right for me personally.”
