CARNOUSTIE, Scotland – Dustin Johnson’s chances of winning The Open are likely already over.
The world No. 1 hit his tee shot out of bounds on 18 on his way to a triple bogey, capping a miserable day that left him with a 5-over 76, 10 shots off the lead and in danger of missing the cut.
Johnson didn’t talk to reporters afterward, but there wasn’t much to discuss.
He didn’t make a birdie until the par-5 14th, bogeyed 16 and then made 7 on Carnoustie's home hole when his tee shot caromed out of bounds left.
Johnson has missed the cut only once in nine previous appearances at The Open – in his first try in 2009.
