After a seven-month delay from its initial scheduled date in April, the 2020 Masters Tournament came to a close at Augusta National on Sunday.
Bryson DeChambeau was the clear favorite at 15-2 heading into this year's tournament after his impressive U.S. Open win with a six-under 274. With his notable distance and strength, there was chatter that he could "break Augusta National."
But in the end, it was another quiet, steady Vegas favorite, Dustin Johnson, who prevailed for his first-ever green jacket. Johnson had been right behind DeChambeau in the odds at 17-2, and the world No. 1 was nothing to sneeze at heading into Masters week.
In his previous four Masters, Johnson finished tied for sixth, fourth and second. He was certainly not looking to finish as runner-up once again this year after doing just that (for the second consecutive time) at the PGA Championship this year.
Whether or not you want to ascribe a narrative of blowing majors to Johnson, the fact remains that he's been left standing on the outside looking in multiple times over his PGA Tour career.
This year, however, he may have decisively put that narrative to bed. Showing off his closing prowess, he all but secured his victory Sunday with three straight birdies starting from No. 13.
Johnson didn't falter throughout the four days of the tournament, ending at 268, an astonishing 20 under par. That was two strokes better than the 72-hole Masters scoring record that Tiger Woods (1997) and Jordan Spieth (2015) had set.
He also had the fewest bogeys ever by any Masters champion, with four:
Johnson's scores in the four rounds of the tournament were 65, 70, 65 and 68.
It all culminated in a sizable payday for Johnson. The full prize-money payouts from this year's $11.5 million purse are below.
