Palm Beach Gardens resident and top-ranked golfer Dustin Johnson won the Masters on Sunday afternoon.
Johnson began the day with a four-stroke lead.
He then took the title, shooting a 68 to finish at -20 to set a new Masters course record.

Tiger Woods (1997) and Jordan Spieth previously shared that honor, coming in at the -18 mark.
Sungjae Im, who won the Honda Classic, finished second in the Masters, at -15, tying with Cameron Smith.
Jupiter Island’s Tiger Woods will not be defending last year’s Master’s win. In 2020 fashion, Tiger’s quest for a sixth green jacket ended when he teed off on the twelfth hole.

The 15-time major champion made a 10 – yes, you read that right, a 10 – on the par-3 12th hole after hitting three balls in Rae’s Creek in the heart of Augusta National’s Amen Corner.
But like a true champion, after the 10, Woods shot birdie, par, birdie, birdie.
Without the debacle at Amen corner, Woods would have been -7 under.
If there’s any silver lining for Woods, who immediately went from 3 under for the tournament to 4 over, it’s that his 10 isn’t the worst in No. 12’s history. Tom Weiskopf once posted a 13 at No. 12 in 1980.
