The 31-year-old American, who had not registered a single top 10 finish in 11 previous majors, triumphed after Tiger Woods took the lead only to throw it away with a series of errors.

Woods finished equal second with the South African pair Rory Sabbatini and Retief Goosen two shots adrift to Johnson.

Britain's Justin Rose, who was one shot off the lead with two to play, had a double bogey on the 17th and finished on 292 with Jerry Kelly of the USA in equal fifth position.
