Dustin Johnson has vowed to learn from past experiences as he aims to clinch his first major title at the Masters. Johnson fell agonisingly short at the US Open last year, conceding the title to Jordan Spieth with a three-putt, before two consecutive rounds of 75 ended his hopes at The Open in July.But the world No 9, who has recorded three top-10 finishes from his last four tournaments, is confident he can learn from his past experiences and break his major duck. Zach Johnson has brought along the Claret Jug he won at The Open in St Andrews last year I still feel like my times coming, said Johnson. Ive just got to keep putting myself in position to have a chance to win. One of these days I will get it done.I dont look at any of them as scar tissue. I try to take every situation, good or bad, and just try to learn from them and use the experience that I had. You know, even like last year at the U.S. Open, to me, that gives me a lot of confidence; if Im in that situation on Sunday, I know I can get it done.This year, I feel like Im coming in with a pretty solid game. I feel like every part of my game is improving. I felt like Ive got a lot of confidence in every part of my game right now, especially with my wedges. I think thats something thats going to help me around here.You know, I think short game and putting is the key around here. I feel like I hit the ball pretty well most of the time. I think if I chip and putt it well, bunkers well, then Im going to compete and have a chance to win on Sunday. Zach Johnson missed out on a first major at the US Open in 2015 Meanwhile, 2007 Masters champions Zach Johnson has been preparing for the Masters in an unusual way by setting up parts of his home course to mimic the conditions in Georgia. This is the one major where we play at the same site every year, so I feel like I dont need to play (the week before), he said. This one, I take the week off, because of what I do at home.The superintendent, what he does to the course.... its not Augusta, but we make it extreme, and that helps when I get here. (He has) very, very tight lies around the greens and fast greens. Zach Johnson won the Masters in 2007 by two shots at one-over-par, the highest winning total at the event He had our practice putting green rolling over 14 (on the stimpmetre) and he took a lot of the grain out. Its a different type of grass, but speeds speed. He actually did some other things around the greens to try to mimic here, but it was even more extreme.Johnson, who has had a mixed bag of results this season finishing fifth in the Arnold Palmer invitational but missing the cut at the Honda Classic, declared that he always feels inspired when he steps out onto Augustas fairways.As he prepares to compete in his 12th Masters, the American has brought along The Opens prized Claret Jug as an extra lift. I saw the Claret Jug last night for the first time in a long time, he added. Staring at that thing and touching, it gives you a lift.My team, if you will, of individuals, guys that I certainly trust - coaches, what-not - have had it (the Jug in their possession). I did get it back this past evening. Thats what its about. I want it to be shared.Youre talking about two of the biggest, iconic symbols in sports. To have that honour to don the (Masters) Green Jacket and drink out of the Claret Jug is pretty special. Im still in awe and pinching myself knowing Ive got one of each. Cheap Shoes Australia Onine .

The pair ended pointless droughts when they each scored two goals in a 6-4 victory over the Winnipeg Jets that halted a two-game losing skid for the Stars (15-11-5). MIAMI -- As soon as Chris Young connected on a deep fly ball to left field in the ninth inning, the New York Mets thought they had tied the game on a sacrifice fly. But they misjudged the strength of Marcell Ozunas arm. Ozuna threw out Kirk Nieuwenhuis at the plate to end the game to help the Miami Marlins beat the Mets 3-2 on Friday night. "Its pretty surprising. Hats off to Ozuna," Nieuwenhuis said. "He made a great throw. Theres no other way to put it." Even Ozuna thought the Mets had tied the game. "I didnt think I had a chance to get him out, but I was going to throw it no matter what," Ozuna said. Ozuna also threw out David Wright to end the eighth after the Mets cut the deficit to 3-2. "I cant remember seeing a game decided by two great throws from a left fielder and two great tags from the catcher to end the game," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "Thats pretty amazing." Henderson Alvarez (4-3) pitched 6 1-3 scoreless innings, allowing seven hits without a walk, and struck out five. In his past six starts, he is 2-0 with a 0.68 ERA, which leads the majors since May 22. "It was a good start for myself. All my pitches were working. Now its about keeping going forward," Alvarez said. Steve Cishek allowed a double to Nieuwenhuis to open the ninth, but earned his 17th save in 18 chances when Ozunas throw landed in catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchias glove for his fourth assist of the season. "He started at the Clevelander, so I didnt think he had a shot, but he started running in," Saltalamacchia said. "Once he got closer I knew he had a chance, but thats a tough throw, big moment like that. You tend to do too much. He made a perfect throw." Mets starter Daisuke Matsuzaka (3-1) allowed one run and six hits in 5 1-3 innings. He struck out four. "I felt good today, and just going off our last time off of Alvarez, I knew it was going to be a close game -- a one or two-run game -- so I knew I couldnt give up too many runs," Matsuzaka said. "One run ended up making a difference." Adeiny Hechavarria drove in two runs, and Saltalamacchia hit two doubles for the Marlins, who won their major league-best 17th one-run game of the season despite going 1 for 11 with runners in scoring position. "It was nice to win that one," Redmond said. "We needed to win that one." Six of the eight games between these clubss this season have been decided by one run New York had a two-game winning streak snapped.dddddddddddd. With the Mets trailing 3-0 in the eighth, Wright hit an RBI single off Kevin Gregg. Two batters later, with Mike Dunn pitching, pinch-hitter Eric Campbell singled to left field to make it 3-2. Wright was thrown out at the plate as he tried to score on the hit. "I got thrown out by about 10 feet, so it wasnt a real close play," Wright said, "but at the same time we kind of thought that he was blocking (the plate) and apparently they thought he wasnt." Mets manager Terry Collins challenged the play, taking up the argument that Wright was blocked from getting to the plate. "When you saw replays, his foot had pretty much that whole side blocked," Collins said. "The over-the-top view, I dont know. You dont ever get an explanation. All they say is the play stands. "You dont ever get an explanation or why they ruled it, and the umpires are as confused as anybody." Rafael Furcal led off of the game for the Marlins with a triple off the right-field fence and scored on a groundout by Hechavarria. It was Furcals first extra-base hit of the season in 30 at-bats and first leadoff triple since June 11, 2010, against the Angels when he played for the Dodgers. "I knew that was the only run I could give up the rest of my outing," Matsuzaka said. After Jake Marisnick stole second base in the seventh, he swiped third with Wright not in position to cover the bag. He then scored when catcher Anthony Reckers throw to third went into left field. "It surprised them a little bit that he took off there with a left-hand hitter," Redmond said. "He was being aggressive and took advantage of a bad throw. That was a huge run for us." The Marlins extended their lead to 3-0 later in the inning when Wright attempted to bare-hand a grounder hit by Hechavarria, but the ball bounced past him, allowing Justin Bour to score. Wright was originally charged with an error, but it was later changed to a hit. NOTES: Mets SS Ruben Tejada took a base hit away from Casey McGehee in the eighth inning when he made a diving stop to his left, spun on the ground, and threw to first from his knees. ... Wright has a 10-game hitting streak at Marlins Park. ... Miami will send RHP Tom Koehler (5-5, 3.84) to the mound on Saturday. New York will counter with RHP Jacob deGrom (0-4, 4.39). ' ' '
