Ron Sirak is the Senior Writer for Golf Digest and a published author.

Ron joined Ed and Steve to talk about Dustin Johnson’s win in the 116th U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club.

Ron started off by talking about where he was on the course while the Dustin Johnson controversy was going on saying “I started out with the final group…when it became clear that Justin had it I bopped over to his group and followed him.” As for what he did once the issue of a possible penalty was raised Ron said “when the penalty issue came up I started texting friends of mine who are golf officials and tried to find out what happened.”

When asked about why the issue seemed to drag on and the rules surrounding it Ron said “under the rules of golf you assume the honesty of the player…golf has sort of moved away from using high def TV to determine rules violations.” Ron talked about who is to blame for the incident saying “you can blame the technical setup of the golf course for that ball moving.”
