Dustin Johnson makes a bomb on 18 to send the BMW Championship to playoff [VIDEO]

With the tournament on the line, from 43 feet the #1 player on Tour in 2020 leaves the pin in and drills it.

Down one stroke on the 18th hole, Dustin Johnson left himself a 43-foot downhill double breaker on greens made of glass at Olympia Fields for a chance to send the FedEx Cup tournament to a playoff.


With that putt, DJ made that to set up a playoff between the #1 player (himself) and #2 player (Jon Rahm) in the world to set up a playoff at Olympia Fields. DJ is +850 to win the title, but Rahm backers at +1000 had to be counting the cash before Johnson stood over his ball.

Both players will start on the 18th hole again as they battle for the title, and then they’ll head to the 10th followed by the 11th. Who picks up the check for this week? We’ll find out now.
