When that first win comes, it will be that much sweeter for Dustin Johnson.

Johnson added to his list of close-but-not-quites by blowing a chance to win on the final hole of the U.S. Open, giving Jordan Spieth a second straight major title.

Here's a recap of the times he's just missed out on victory.

2010 U.S. Open

Led by 3 after 54 holes, shot 82 in final round

At the 2010 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, Johnson had a 3-shot 54-hole lead. But he had a double-bogey and triple-bogey in two of the first three holes, didn’t record a birdie in the entire round, and finished with an 82.

2010 PGA Championship

Led on 18th hole Sunday, assessed 2-shot penalty which kept him out of playoff

Johnson entered the final round 3 shots behind Nick Watney, but went to the 18th tee at Whistling Straits with a 1-shot lead over Martin Kaymer and Bubba Watson. He bogeyed the hole -- or so he thought -- but was ruled to have grounded his club in a bunker on his second shot. Johnson thought it was an area of ground trampled down by the fans, but it was not.

He was assessed a 2-shot penalty. His bogey became a 7, keeping him out of the playoff.

2011 Open Championship

Double-bogey on 14th hole on Sunday ruins chances

On Sunday, Johnson trailed Darren Clarke by 2 shots on the par-5 14th hole, and opted to take out a 2-iron instead of a 3-wood after a perfect tee shot. His second shot went well right. He went on to make a double-bogey on the hole, which essentially sealed the win for Clarke.

2015 U.S. Open

Three-putts 18th hole after having eagle putt to win

Johnson shared the 54-hole lead and headed to the 72nd hole 1 shot behind Spieth. Needing a birdie to force a playoff, Johnson hit his second shot to about 13 feet of the hole. Needing to make the eagle for the win, Johnson pushed his eagle putt past the hole and then missed his birdie putt, which would have sent the U.S. Open to a Monday playoff.
