Dustin Johnson's tee shot destroys TV microphone at U.S. Open

We've got destruction of property at Pinehurst.

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.
