How did it not go in?

You know when you hear those annoying (American) golf fans that bellow “get in the hole” on a huge par 4 or par 5 and you think to yourself ‘it hasn’t a prayer, what are you shouting for you bellends?’

Well, Dustin Johnson almost shut you up last night.

The 2016 US Open champion narrowly missed out on the shot of a lifetime at The Tournament of Champions in Hawaii after he belted a drive at the 433-yard 12th hole.

Johnson is known as one of the biggest hitters in the world of golf and, with the wind at his back in Kapalua, he clearly fancied a crack at extending his advantage at the top of the leaderboard when he stepped up to the tee in his final round.

He then ripped one with the driver and watched it fly down the 12th fairway. The ball then took a kindly hop towards the green and looked for all the world to be heading for the cup.

However, it wasn’t to be as the ball slowed up and stopped just shy of the hole, robbing the world of a moment of magic. It didn’t take DJ too long to get over the disappointment though, as he tapped in for an eagle and went on to claim his first tournament win of 2018 a few holes later.

It was so close and you can watch it for yourself below:
