Some of golf's biggest names have lavished praise on Dustin Johnson after the world No.1's emphatic Masters victory.
Johnson, 36, rewrote the history books with a dominant five-shot win at Augusta National - the second major triumph of his career.
Not only did his 20-under-par winning total set a new record for the lowest Masters score of all time, the four bogeys he carded across the four rounds were also the lowest ever by a winner.
On top of that, he tied the most greens hit in regulation over the last 35 years and clocked up the largest winning margin at Augusta since Tiger Woods in 1997, whilst his closing 68 was his 11th consecutive sub-par round at the Masters, breaking Tiger's record of ten.
Woods, who slipped the green jacket on Johnson's shoulders in the traditional prize-giving ceremony, was one of the first to hail the new champion.
Other Masters champions were also quick to congratulate Johnson.
Barbara and I send our heartfelt congrats to @DJohnsonPGA on a Masters Tournament well played!Dustin drove the ball fantastically. His irons were great. His putting was just rock solid. Put those together, and you win a major championship. @TheMasters— Jack Nicklaus (@jacknicklaus) November 15, 2020
Congratulations to @DJohnsonPGA on capturing his first green jacket. Dustin showcased why he’s the world’s #1 ranked golfer. As always, he looked cool, calm and collected and his lead never looked under threat. There’s no feeling like your first #TheMasters victory. Soak it in! pic.twitter.com/43qpHdR5zz— GARY PLAYER (@garyplayer) November 15, 2020
Other big names also chimed in.
We bow to you Dustin Johnson...World no 1 and playing like it!The coolest man since Seve to wear that Green jacket.— Thomas Bjørn (@thomasbjorngolf) November 15, 2020
Great Winner - best player tee to green & approach won again at Augusta. What really stood out for me though was the resilience and fortitude of an improved DJ that will win more, a lot more, Majors. He’s proved he’s at a different level mentally than ever before. @SkySportsGolf— Paul McGinley (@mcginleygolf) November 15, 2020
