Playing out of the penultimate twosome, overnight co-leader and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson birdied his final hole to salvage an even-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the 118th U.S. Open to finish up on 3-over 283, dipping two spots to solo 3rd, two shy of tying competitor and champion Brooks Koepka, who shot 68.
The 33-year-old, who takes over the top spot in the FedExCup standings, was looking to become the first player ever to win a TOUR event and the U.S. Open the following week. He gave it a good run, leading or co-leading after each of the first three rounds. After opening in 69-67-77, the Coastal Carolina product co-led with three others, including Koepka. He hit 12 (of 14) fairways and pelted 16 greens in regulation, posting a dismal 2.000 putts per GIR with 35 total putts. Johnson circled four birdies at holes 5, 8, 15 and 18 (from 12'11"), cancelled by four squares at 7, 11 (3-putt from 33'8"), 14 (3-putt from 72'9") and 17 (3-putt from 61'7"). For the week, he totaled 13 birdies against 14 bogeys and one double. This was Johnson's 11th U.S. Open, sixth top 25 and fifth top 10, first since his win in 2016. Overall, it was his 36th major, 20th top 25, three straight, and 15th top 10, second straight after T10 at this year's Masters. Jun 17 - 7:22 PM

First-round co-leader and second-round leader Dustin Johnson coughed up a 7-over-par 41-36=77 in the third round of the 118th U.S. Open, now sharing the 54-hole lead with Daniel Berger (66), Tony Finau (66) and defending champ Brooks Koepka (72) on 3-over 213. UPDATE: This is Johnson's 17th 54-hole lead/co-lead in 233 events, previously 9-for-16 converting. It's also his fifth of the season in 12 starts (2-for-4).

After kicking off with 69-67, the 2016 champ began with a four-shot lead over two players. Playing out of the final pairing with 18-hole, co-leader Scott Piercy, who shot 79, he hit 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting a dismal 2.077 putts per GIR with 38 total putts. The World No. 1, who had just four bogeys thru 36 holes, ate six of them today, along with double bogey-5 at hole 2, three of those blemishes 3-jacks, the last of which came at the 18th from 16'9", dropping him out of the final pairing in R4. The 33-year-old, last week's winner at the St. Jude as 54-hole leader, mustered just one birdie-2 at 11 from 7'5". He'll play with Koepka out of the penultimate twosome on Sunday.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, overnight co-leader and past champ Dustin Johnson smoothed a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the second round of the 118th U.S. Open to reach 4-under 136, good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With R2 completed, Johnson leads by four over first-round, co-leader Scott Piercy and Charley Hoffman.

If this lead holds up, it'll be the 33-year-old's 16th midpoint lead/co-lead in 233 events, previously 8-for-15 converting, including at last week's St. Jude as the sole leader. It would be his third 36-hole lead/co-lead in 36 major appearances, joining the 2015 Open Championship (finished T49), and the 2016 U.S. Open (Oakmont), which he went on to win (67-69-71-69). The World No. 1 landed 12 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, outpacing a lone bogey-4 at hole 1 (failed sand save) with four birdies at 11, 16, 4 and 7, two from between 15 and 46 feet. He also had three par-savers at 14, 18 and 2 in the 6-to-8 foot range, taking 27 total putts.

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson picked apart Shinnecock Hills Golf Club en route to a 1-under-par 33-36=69 during round one of the U.S. Open Championship, joining the clubhouse lead alongside Scott Piercy, Russell Henley, and Ian Poulter.

One of the longest hitters on the planet, this big hitter actually got the job done with his short game today. After landing nine greens in regulation, he circled four birdies to offset a trio of bogeys. Starting his round with back-to-back par-savers from 10-to-12 feet, Johnson ended his day with five putts rolled in from outside 10 feet (two from the 21-to-24 foot range). On top of standout putting, he also splashed home from the greenside bunker at the par-4 eighth, good for a birdie on the scorecard. Sharing the lead with three others, this will be Johnson's 16th career first-round lead or co-lead on the PGA TOUR. It's also the second time he's co-led at the U.S. Open (2015 at Chambers Bay, finished T2).
Jun 14 - 7:19 PM

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson, a pre-tourney 8/1 fave outright, readies for the 118th U.S. Open in Southhampton, New York, and heads out at 1:47 PM ET in Round 1 with Justin Thomas and Tiger Woods.

The 33-year-old won last week's St. Jude by six as a 36-hole leader and 54-hole co-leader (and 6/1 fave outright). It was his fifth straight top 25 of the season in 11 starts and second win (Sentry TOC), becoming the season's sixth multiple winner. This is the Coastal Carolina product's 11th U.S. Open with five prior top 25s among eight cashes and four top 10s, including three straight top 5s: T4/2014; T2/2015 and Win/2016 at Oakmont CC (PA), also on a par-70 layout. Overall, this is the Florida resident's 36th major with 19 top 25s and 14 top 10s (one win) and major form -- dating to a missed cut at last year's U.S. Open -- of 10-13-54-MC. No player has ever won the week prior and then the U.S. Open the following week.

Playing out of the final twosome, overnight co-leader and World No. 2 Dustin Johnson holed out for eagle on the 72nd hole en route to a 4-under-par 35-31=66 in the final round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic and a four-day tally of 19-under 261, good for a six-shot win over runner-up and playing competitor Andrew Putnam and his 18th PGA TOUR title in 232 events. UPDATE: Johnson improves to 8-for-15 when 36-hole leader/co-leader and 9-for-16 when leading/co-leading after 54 holes.

The 33-year-old, a pre-tourney 6/1 fave outright, becomes the season's sixth multiple winner and returns to No. 1 in world rankings after relinquishing it four weeks ago. This was his sixth St. Jude, fifth top 25 and fourth top 10, joining his come-from-behind win on debut in 2012. The Coastal Carolina product improves to 10-for-11 on the season with 10 top 25s and seven top 10s, augmenting his eight-shot win at the Sentry TOC.

Overnight leader and World No. 2 Dustin Johnson fired a 5-under-par 34-31=65 in the third round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic for a 54-hole total of 15-under 195, good for a share of the lead with Andrew Putnam and five clear of 3rd-place placeholder Stewart Cink.

This is the 33-year-old's 16th 54-hole lead/co-lead in 232 events, fourth this season in 11 starts. Overall, he's 8-for-15 converting, 1-for-3 this season (Sentry TOC). The Coastal Carolina product is chasing an 18th TOUR title and a second St. Jude, coming from behind for a one-shot win in 2012. After kicking off with 67-63, he began with a one-shot lead over playing competitor Ryan Blaum (and Putnam). Johnson found nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 3.680 strokes approaching-the-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 9, outflanked by six birdies at 1, 5, 10, 13, 15 and 16, all from inside of 10 feet. The Florida resident posted 1.571 putts per GIR and 1.373 SG: Putting with 27 total putts.
Jun 9 - 6:06 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, past champ and World No. 2 Dustin Johnson twirled a 7-under-par 29-34=63 in the second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to post 10-under 130, up 12 places to the top of the board and good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With R2 completed, Johnson leads by one shot over two players. It's his 15th 36-hole lead/co-lead in 232 events, previously 7-for-14 converting, zero for his last two, the latter two both this season (T2, Pebble Beach; T2, WGC-HSBC).

This is the 33-year-old's sixth St. Jude with four prior top 25s and three top 10s, including a solo 5th on last visit, where he closed with 63, and winning on debut 2012. The Coastal Carolina product can regain the No. 1 ranking in the world with a win this week and checked in off a T8 at last week's Memorial Tournament. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 2.004 strokes off-the-tee, 2.815 on approach, and 5.612 tee-to-green. Johnson squared two bogey-5s at 12 and 13, smothered by seven birdies and a hole-out eagle-2 at 1 from 111 yards out. He posted 1.417 putts per GIR and 1.552 SG: Putting with just 24 total putts. Johnson began the week with a 67 (five birdies, one double bogey-6). His 63 matches a season low in 38 rounds (R2, WGC-HSBC, finished T2).
Jun 8 - 1:57 PM

World No. 2 Dustin Johnson carded a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the Memorial Tournament to conclude on 11-under 277, up 20 places to T8 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Johnson finished T8, four adrift of a 3-man playoff.

In his first action since losing World No. 1 after a T17 at THE PLAYERS three weeks ago, the 33-year-old ended an up-and-down week posting rounds of 72-66-72-67. He's now 9-for-11 at the Memorial with six top 25s and possibly a third top 10, first since 3rd in 2016 (MC/2017). The North Palm Beach resident improves to 10-for-10 on the season with nine top 25s, four straight, and potentially a sixth top 10, first since T10 at the Masters. For the week, he totaled 20 birdies versus nine bogeys and currently ranks 17th in SG: Approach (3.996) and 10th in SG: Putting (3.706), though 57th (of 73) in SG: Around-the-Green (-1.297).

World No. 2 Dustin Johnson stormed Muirfield Village Golf Club with a 6-under-par 33-33=66 during round two of the Memorial Tournament, climbing 40 spots on the live leaderboard to snag an early seat inside the top 10 on 6-under 138.

Making his first start since losing the title of World No. 1 golfer, Johnson looks ready to fight for his crown. Starting on the tougher of the two nines today, DJ picked off birdies at 13, 14, 15, and 18 to offset a blemish at the 12th. It was all stellar striking as none of those conversions came from outside nine feet. He walked off the course gaining 3.653 strokes on approach. After the turn, he flashed a bit of putting prowess, converting a 19'2" birdie at the par-4 first hole. Making his 11th appearance at this event, DJ is on early pace to pick up a third career top 10 here, adding to a solo 4th in 2011 and a solo third in 2016. This matches the low round recorded on the day so far (Rory Sabbatini, Vijay Singh, Phil Mickelson).
Jun 1 - 1:25 PM

First-round co-leader and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson navigated a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in the third round of THE PLAYERS to reach 10-under 206, up eight places to solo 3rd, nine adrift of 54-hole leader Webb Simpson. UPDATE: Johnson closed with even-par 72 for T17 and drops to No. 2 in OWGR. He needed a top-10 finish to maintain the top spot, which he had held for 64 consecutive weeks (since Feb. 20, 2017)

Eight of Johnson's 17 TOUR titles have been in come-from-behind fashion. The largest deficit he's overcome was five shots at the 2015 WGC-Cadillac (Doral). After kicking off with 66-71, the 33-year-old began T11, eight back of Simpson. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 0.289 strokes off-the-tee and 1.347 on approach, but gaining 0.957 around-the-green. The Coastal Carolina product squared two bogeys at holes 5 and 8, outpaced by five birdies at 2, 9, 13, 15 and 17, two from between 20 and 49 feet. He recorded 1.727 putts per GIR and 3.480 SG: Putting with 27 total putts. A key stretch for Johnson began with a 48'11" birdie bomb at 13, followed by a 20'4" par-saver at 14 and a pitch-in birdie at 15 from 18'7" away.
May 12 - 8:38 PM

Overnight co-leader and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson back-pedaled with a 1-under-par 37-34=71 in the second round of THE PLAYERS, dropping 10 places on the live leaderboard to T11 on 7-under 137, a distant eight in arrears of 36-hole leader Webb Simpson, who shot a course-record-tying 63.

The 33-year-old raced out of the gates with eagle-3 at hole 2 from 32'2" but outbalanced three birdies (at 11-13) with four bogeys the rest of the way. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 1.451 strokes off-the-tee and 0.734 around-the-green, but losing 0.922 on approach. The Coastal Carolina product, who's employed a new putter and new putting technique (Aimpoint Express) this week, posted 1.727 putts per GIR and -1.029 SG: Putting with 29 total putts.
May 11 - 7:05 PM

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson was blemish-free today, cruising to a 6-under-par, 35-51=66 during round one of THE PLAYERS Championship, good for a share of the early lead with Webb Simpson.

TPC Sawgrass has been an unsolved mystery for Johnson. In year's past he's never been inside the top 10 after any round here and his best finish is a T12 (2017). You would never have guessed that if you only watched today's round. DJ split nine (of 14) fairways en route to 17 greens in regulation. That was good for 3.894 strokes gained in the long-game department (Off-the-Tee plus Approach). From there, his putter also kicked in with a pair of birdie conversions from outside 20 feet, including a 34-footer at the par-4 18th. Given his poor track record here, we shouldn't hand him the trophy just yet. However, he's easily off to the best start of his PLAYERS career as he fights this week to maintain his title as World No. 1 golfer. In 31 rounds here, this goes in the books as a new personal best for DJ, just the fourth time he's signed a sub-70 scorecard at TPC Sawgrass.
May 10 - 1:20 PM

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson will need a big finish this week at THE PLAYERS Championship if he wants to maintain his spot at the top of the world rankings.

DJ arrives with seven straight top 20s to open the season (stroke-play events). He'll need that and more if he wants to hold onto the World No. 1 tag by week's end. A lot of the calculations will be determined by what Justin Thomas does this week but Johnson could control his own destiny with a win. That won't be easy for the big hitter who just finally got his first top 25 at TPC Sawgrass last year (T12). Johnson has never actually been inside the top 10 after any round of this event (30 rounds). Given his motivation, gamers should be surprised to see DJ near the top but he does make for a boom-or-bust type of option for a golfer of his cachet.
May 9 - 4:11 PM

Dustin Johnson strolls into the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links looking to make noise in his home state of South Carolina.

The World No. 1 Johnson wouldn't think of missing this event in the low country. He is a Palmetto State native, born in Columbia, and he played his college golf for the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers. D.J. will likely bring it with the same intensity he did in his top-10 showing at the Masters last week despite much, much less at stake. It's important to him to perform well in his home state. This is first appearance at Harbour Town since 2009 when he missed the cut. Of course, he is a much different player than nine years ago.
