Dustin Johnson is one of the longest hitters in golf and on this shot at the par-3 6th, he put a little too much on it and ended up crushing some ESPN or NBC broadcasting hardware. DJ sailed his tee shot over the green, and landed a direct hit on top of a greenside microphone (via Kyle Porter of CBS):
Microphone destruction isn't a new thing at the U.S. Open, but usually it's done intentionally by an angry and frustrated player, like, say, Sergio Garcia, who took a swipe at one on the tee at Olympic two years ago.
This led to about five separate terrible Chris Berman puns before Johnson was able to actually get up-and-down for par following the nasty bounce off the mic. This kind of save, according to Boomer, shall from now on be known as a "mic-y."
Johnson is 2-under through his first six holes and just a shot of the lead held by Brooks Koepka.
