Dustin Johnson hit his tee shot off a fan's head on the par-4 second hole in Saturday's third round of the 2016 U.S. Open, and he still managed to make par from the concession stand.

Johnson took iron off the tee and pulled it to the left, well outside the ropes. The ball wound up knocking a fan in the head -- who seemed to be OK, relatively speaking -- and rolled to the left, under a concession stand.

From there, Johnson was given a free drop and managed to hit his second shot just off the green, a little past hole high. Facing a dicey chip for an up-and-down, Johnson pulled off the shot, hitting it about 4 feet and letting it trickle down to gimme range for a par.

Johnson is still in control of the golf tournament, early in the third round.
