Heartbreak, celebrity for Johnson

Pop quiz: Who won the 1999 Open Championship? How about the 1968 Masters? If your answer is Jean Van de Velde and Roberto De Vicenzo you would be wrong, although justifiably so.(Callaway LEGACY Driver)

There’s little doubt Van de Velde and De Vicenzo are remembered for what they didn’t do more so than what Paul Lawrie and Bob Goalby accomplished in victory.(Callaway Diablo EDGE Irons) The jury is still out on how the surrealistic 2010 PGA Championship will be recalled, but Dustin Johnson’s gaffe has already left a familiar mark on the public psyche.(Callaway LEGACY Fairway Wood)

According to a member of Camp Johnson, by Monday morning the hard-swinging 26-year-old had already received more than 500 autograph requests from newfound fans.(Callaway LEGACY Driver)

The chances are good that when Johnson’s career is over he will have collected his own six-pack of majors, but in the short term there’s no denying the celebrity that accompanies a deftly handled heartbreak.(Callaway Diablo EDGE Irons)
