Dustin Johnson may have birdied the par-4 18th in round three of the 150th Open Championship at St Andrews, but playing partner Scottie Scheffler cannot be certain that DJ did not cold top his fairway wood shot from the tee.
When pressed by the media after the round as to whether or not Johnson topped his golf ball, Scheffler laughed: "No comment."
Scheffler then added: "Yeah, he walked away and he's like 'wow, tried to hit it low but didn't mean to try to hit it that low.'
"I don't know if he topped it or not. We were walking off the tee and DJ looks at me, and he goes, 'man, I forgot to get the cover there'.
"It carried the burn by like 10 yards. Honestly, I felt like it got one kick up in the air. If it hadn't got that kick up in the air, it still would have gone pretty close to the green with how firm everything is, but still able to make birdie."
