The "worst" major of the year turns into the best one, great finish although I was hoping Bubba pulled it off. Kaymer is no flash in the pan, guy has been up there in all the majors this year pretty much.

So, Kaymer wins on a day where he had two bogeys, one of which was the 3rd hole of the playoff when it was tied, and the final pairing had an 81, and a 7 on the 72nd hole because of a penalty with a chance to win. A few young guys rise above the future stars of the sport. Fascinating day though. Days like this, especially with how it ended, is the ultimate theater.

Watney, like McIlroy at the Open, still the only golfer who didn't have a round in the 70s

The bunker call was a disgrace.How can you call something like that a bunker?
In the future i'll be rooting for Johnson for sure tough year for him in the final round of the majors.

It is calls like that, that make me hate the "tradition" of golf. Honestly, who cares if he grounded his club in that? It's not like it gave him an advantage. Should be up the the discretion of the rules official. DJ is the man for admitting to it though, all he had to say is that he didn't ground it and he would have been in the playoff.

Feel so bad for Dustin. ****ing weak call by the PGA. How you call that a bunker is beyond me. He's hitting the ball and people are still standing in the "bunker" Absolute joke.

What a dumb call on Johnson, if it is a bunker, then why are there hundreds of fans walking all over it? I understand that it was stated in the rules, but it's still stupid. Who's the nerd who noticed him grounding the club anyways?

What a crazy tournament, if only Bubba made that last shot..would have been epic.

The PGA had to call it a bunker as they clearly identified it as one before the tournament started. I just didn't like how they handled the crowds, they should of gave DJ more space for him to play his shot and then the walking official would have clearly been able to see DJ was lying on sand and there would have been nobody else in the bunker which may have made it easier to identify.

Well, the player is supposed to ask, not be told.

If the crowd wasn't up that close, maybe he would have thought it was a bunker.

Poulter also said this:

RT @Ianjamespoulter: I didn't see any notice in the locker room but I wasn't looking for them. They may have been there.

Granted, the guy was on his deathbed when he wasn't hitting balls this week.
