Check Out Dustin Johnson's Insane Comeback Putt at the Masters

Dustin Johnson leaves the golf course in disappointment.

The best golfer in the world is a lot like us--he misses an easy putt every now and then. However, when Dustin Johnson erases a mistake at the Masters with the whole world watching--that's where he proves why he's a cut above the rest.

On the par-3 16th hole for birdie, Johnson’s putt from 15 feet out sneaks past the hole on the right side--and would roll another to 44 feet for par. Instead of pulling a Happy Gilmore and tossing his putter, Johnson calmly sunk the ensuing putt to save par and remain at two-under--just four shots off the lead behind Patrick Reed who is currently atop the leaderboard as of Friday afternoon.

Johnson shot a 1-over 73 in the first round on Thursday but made eagle on the second hole Friday to start his ascent up the leaderboard.

Johnson is considered one of the favorites to win this year's tournament. The power-hitter has come close to winning before--but hasn't quite done what it takes in order to don the elusive green jacket.
