I think Dustin Johnson in the next three years is going to win the career Grand Slam.

After watching Dustin Johnson's dominant victory at the 84th Masters, Rich Beem predicts DJ can complete a Grand Slam of major titles within the next three years... Unique would be a good way of putting it. It did lack the roars with this Masters just because of the simple fact Dustin Johnson hit some really quality shots and I think he would have appreciated them. He would have loved to hear the roars, he would have loved to hear the ovation walking up to each and every green. The patrons just telling him, "what you are doing is amazing".

I think he would have loved all that. Johnson finally won his second major after a wait of almost four-and-a-half years But saying that, I don't think Dustin thrives on that. I think he would have liked it but he is not going to sit there and say, "it wasn't quite the same", because I think that whatever he says afterwards the fact is that he has won the Green Jacket in record fashion. In terms of great major performances, this rates right up there, there is no doubt. This is one of those championships I am just never going to forget.

This tournament was a lot like what I saw Jordan Spieth do back in 2015. It was clinical, he never got really flustered. He might have got a little bit anxious at times but you never saw any panic in his game whatsoever and you never got a sense that he was going to blow the lead like he has in certain tournaments throughout his career. The winner of the 84th Masters Dustin Johnson is presented with his first Green Jacket. I think that's one of the reasons why he won the Tour Championship, because even though he was chased down and caught, he never got flustered, he never got overwhelmed and he kept doing what he was doing and it paid off in the end. It was the same at Augusta, he was just able to run away with it and outdistance himself come the second nine. Butch Harmon has no doubts that Dustin will win more majors, but I am going to go one more than Butch. I think Dustin Johnson in the next three years is going to win the career Grand Slam. I think he is going to cling on to this one and it's unfortunate that he might have to give it back in four-and-a-half months' time. That would be the disappointing thing to a point but, once again, you are never going to fully take it away from the man. Once he steps on the grass he is going to have it. Johnson can win the Grand Slam in the next three years But if he is able to repeat what he is doing right now, I'm hard pressed to say anybody in the game of golf is going to be able to chase him down. I know we talk about Bryson DeChambeau, how hard he hits it, and what he could possibly do. But DJ hits it absolutely far enough to contend at this golf course each and every year. Now he understands how to win here he is going to be awfully tough to beat in years to come. Dustin Johnson woke up on Monday morning hoping his Masters triumph had not been a dream following his record-breaking exploits at Augusta National. Johnson recovered from a somewhat shaky start to card a final round of 68 and win his second major title by five shots from Australia's Cameron Smith and South Korea's Sungjae Im. The world number one's winning total of 20 under par set a new tournament record, beating the previous best of 18 under set by Tiger Woods in 1997 and equalled by Jordan Spieth in 2015. And as the defending champion, Woods was on hand to present Johnson with his green jacket in the traditional ceremony in the Butler Cabin. "Always around the putting green growing up, it was putts to win the Masters," Johnson said. "It was always to win at Augusta, especially because I grew up so close to here, about an hour, hour and 10 minutes away. "As a kid you dream of playing in the Masters and dream about putting on a green jacket. Still kind of think it's a dream, but hopefully it's not. "Obviously having Tiger put it on was awesome and unbelievable and you wouldn't want it any other way. But any guy could put it on me and I'd be just fine!" “The Masters to me is the biggest tournament. It's the one I wanted to win the most” - Dustin Johnson Johnson took a four-shot lead into the final round but saw that reduced to a single stroke after playing the first five holes in one over par while Smith and Im picked up two early birdies. However, he responded well to birdie the sixth and eighth and a hat-trick of birdies from the 13th sealed a commanding victory to go with his 2016 US Open success. "It's always tough to get it done in a major," added Johnson, who had failed to convert any of his four previous 54-hole leads into major victories. "No matter how good you're playing it's hard. I was nervous all day, I could feel it.
