ESPN – From an old bean field to Augusta National

“Dustin was introduced to golf when he was 6 or 7 years old. His father, Scott Johnson, a former all-state high school football player, had taken up the game and wasn’t very good. So Dustin’s grandmother called Jimmy Koosa, an instructor at Weed Hill Driving Range in nearby Irmo, South Carolina, and asked him to give her son lessons.”

“He would always come to Weed Hill,” Jimmy Koosa said. “He knew that was a place where he could practice, and a place where he could play. He loved playing the game and enjoyed trying to figure out how to get good at the game. I’d say he pretty much figured it out.”
