Dustin Johnson entered the 2016 U.S. Open searching for his first major win, something that had eluded him many times before.

Johnson had 11 top-10s in the majors and five top-5s. He had been close to victory before, but blown leads and botched finishes always stood in the way of him capturing a major title. Until Oakmont.

Johnson redeemed himself after a crushing collapse at last year’s U.S. Open. On the 72nd green at Chambers Bay, two impressive shots left him a 15-footer for eagle to win the U.S. Open. Johnson not only missed that one, but also the three-footer that would have forced a playoff with Jordan Spieth.

That finish seemed like a distant memory as Johnson completed his final round with determination and poise to with the 116th U.S. Open.

Here’s how social media responded to Johnson’s win on Sunday:
