Say this for Dustin Johnson: the man knows how to aim a golf shot. On the 219-yard par 3 sixth hole, Johnson lined up an approach, ever so slightly flew the green, and absolutely nailed a green-side microphone.

The result? A noise that was less like a golf shot and more like a bomb exploding!

He would go on to par the hole, fortunately enough, and finished the round at one under, three strokes behind then-leader Martin Kaymer.

It's not the first time Johnson has taken aim at technology. A couple years back, he nailed a TV camera high above the Blue Monster at Doral:

With this kind of aim, perhaps golf isn't Johnson's chosen profession. He's married to Paulina Gretzky. Maybe his father-in-law could give him a few tips on how to transition over to hockey.
