You won’t believe where Dustin Johnson keeps his trophies
Dustin Johnson is a man who marches to the beat of his own drum and a man who has amassed some of the biggest trophies in the game.
Therefore, it would be reasonable to assume that DJ props up his shiny accomplishments in a trophy room or at least on his mantlepiece? Not so fast.
Prior to this week’s Valspar Championship, the enigmatic Johnson explained to media that the majority of his 20+ PGA Tour trophies instead sit in boxes at his home.
“Yeah, they’re all in a box in my office. We’re kind of in between houses, so I didn’t unpack anything, even though I’ve been there for like three years, but just never unpacked any of them. They’re all sitting together in boxes. I’ve got a few of them out.”
If that’s not the most classic DJ thing I’ve ever heard, then I don’t know what is.
As for this week’s trophy, the World Number One had this to say:
“It’s a nice trophy. I’d like to have it. It would look good on the shelf. I don’t know what it is, but it looks nice.”
Euro Tour pro attempts world record for farthest shot hit into moving car
How far would you go to break a world record? For European Tour pro Marcus Armitage the answer is very.
Armitage took on the challenge of breaking the world record for the farthest golf shot into a moving car with his Callaway Epic Flash driver and went through a ton of emotions in his efforts.
The 33-year-old showed plenty of humor in his attempts, including an iconic early celebration for one of his efforts which was cruelly ruled out.
Armitage eventually does get the world record with a drive of over 300 yards, and it’s a video that is sure to improve your mood. Check it out below.

- “That’s fantastic, glued to my phone watching that willing it in.”
- “This is insane.”
15 members of counterfeit golf equipment ring found guilty; 120k pieces of golf gear confiscated
Fifteen people in China have been arrested for their part in a golf equipment counterfeit ring, according to an industry watchdog association named U.S. Golf Manufacturers Anti-Counterfeiting Working Group.
120k pieces of golf gear were confiscated in the raid, totalling more than $1.8 million, with involved pieces of equipment falsely carrying the branding of Titleist, TaylorMade, PXG, Ping, Callaway, XXIO and Cleveland/Srixon.
Thirteen people were convicted for counterfeiting registered trademarks, while the other two were convicted for selling the items. The 15 defendants were sentenced to a combined 42 years in prison with fines totalling $574,461.
Another person was tried in the case, with the result of that trial currently pending.
Speaking following the verdict, Kristin Strojan, Legal Counsel Trademark and Brand Protection at TaylorMade Golf said
“We are thrilled that Chinese police were willing to take serious action against online counterfeits even during the pandemic. Counterfeiters have been taking advantage of the current situation and counterfeit listings have become more rampant on the internet. We never stopped watching them even during these challenging times and continue to work with authorities worldwide to target online counterfeit sellers aggressively. This raid action sends a very strong message to the market that the Golf Group has zero tolerance for counterfeit products and will continue to monitor the marketplace, both online and offline, to maintain the integrity of the game.”
Some of the products involved in the ten raids in total included golf clubs, club heads, shafts, grips, bags, labels and more.
Per the initial report, the Chinese police have committed to further investigation of the upstream suppliers and downstream sellers that have been involved in the network and more arrests are expected.
