A look back at the wildest endings of the past 25 years at the golf season's final major
Dustin Johnson

2010, Whistling Straits

This one had a bit of everything. A spectacular setting, clutch playing, major gagging and yes, a rules controversy. Unfortunately for Martin Kaymer, his first major victory will be remembered just as much for Dustin Johnson throwing a way a chance to win by unknowingly grounding his club in one of Whistling Straits' countless bunkers on the 72nd hole. The penalty knocked him out of a playoff with Kaymer and Bubba Watson, which the German won.
