WATCH: Dustin Johnson hits huge (!) hosel rocket at LIV Golf's $50m finale

Dustin Johnson hit likely one of the biggest shanks of his career en route to defeating Phil Mickelson in the semifinals of the $50m LIV Golf team championship

Johnson eventually saw off Mickelson 2&1 at Trump National Doral in Miami but he was pushed all the way by the six-time major champion. 

His shank arrived on No. 15 when he was 1UP. Mickelson rolled in a birdie putt at the short par-3 but Johnson responded, winning the next two holes at 16 and 17 to defeat Lefty. 

Watch the shank here:

Johnson's 4 Aces advanced to the finals thanks to Pat Perez and Peter Uihlein seeing off the HyFlyers' James Piot and Brendan Steele 4&3. 

Patrick Reed was defeated 4&3 by Cameron Tringale

In the other matches, Bryson DeChambeau's Crushers advanced with a 2-1 win over the Cleeks. 

DeChambeau defeated Martin Kaymer 4&3 and Paul Casey thrashed Richard Bland 6&5. It didn't matter that Charles Howell III and Anirban Lahiri lost 3&2 to Graeme McDowell and Bernd Wiesberger. 

In the third match, Joaquin Niemann's Torque swept Lous Oosthuizen's Stinger 3-0. 

Bubba Watson's RangeGoats advanced over Sergio Garcia's Fireballs with a 2-1 win. 

Garcia defeated Watson 4&3, the 2023 individual champion Talor Gooch beat Eugenio Chacarra 2UP and the paring of Thomas Pieters and Harold Varner III won 2&1 against Carlos Ortiz and Abraham Ancer.
