Twitter reacts to Dustin Johnson's classic driver incident

Dustin Johnson is currently competing in the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii, his first regular PGA Tour event since August. Johnson overcame a challenging first round where he often found himself in trouble, but managed to finish the day one-under par.

The big-hitting American currently has 22 PGA Tour victories and will be keen to add to that number this year, after a difficult seasaon in 2019, which featured some poor performances and problems with injury, although he still managed a win at the WGC-Mexico Championship back in February.

Johnson has recently rekindled his relationship with coach Claude Harmon III after the two previously split, which seemed to have a negative effect on DJ's game.

During the Pro-Am of the Sentry Tournament of Champions, Johnson was filmed accidently clattering his driver into an advertising board during a practice swing, something that most golfers have experienced before, either hitting something similar or even one of their playing partners.

The video quickly went viral on Twitter and people were quick to share their own experiences.

"I’ve played events where there was no room to swing. And I’ve had nightmares about being on a tee and nowhere to stand," said a golf fan.

Another said: "Anyone else have this as a recurring dream? I’m on the first tee and just can’t figure out how to tee the ball with something blocking the swing path. DJ is living my nightmare!"

"Who hasn’t crushed a stationary object on a tee box????," added another fan.

Many fans complaiend about how close the advertising board was to the tee box, one saying: "That’s nuts... I know ads are big for $$$ but damn back that thing up about 10 feet."
