Dustin Johnson spun a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in today's final round of the 79th Masters to post 9-under 279, two strokes adrift of the 72-hole clubhouse lead.
Johnson finished in a three-way share of sixth place to secure his first top 10 in six tries at Augusta National. It was clear early that it was going to be his day. After drilling a long-range try for birdie at the par-3 sixth, he circled a strange birdie at the par-4 seventh. After his approach seemingly came to rest on the green, it would take the slope and roll about halfway to the hole. He added four birdies, including a walk-off 3 at the 18th hole. For the week, Johnson scored bogey-free 14-under on the par 5s with three eagles, all in the second round. Apr 12 - 6:23 PM

Dustin Johnson signed for a 1-over-par 35-38=73 after his third round of the Masters and posted 6-under 210.

So much for the value of DJ's three eagles on Friday. He hit three more greens in regulation today (12), but "settled" for three birdies on the par 5s. (He's bogey-free 12-under on the par 5s this week.) It was complemented by a mid-range conversion for a 2 on the par-3 sixth hole, but he also squared bogeys at 4, 17 and 18. However, Johnson's biggest disappointment occurred at the par-3 12th. After missing the green short, he nubbed a chip into a bunker. After blasting out, he two-putted for a double bogey. While he's locked in a five-way tie for fifth place, DJ is 10 strokes in arrears of Jordan Spieth's 54-hole lead. It seems inevitable that Johnson will extend his drought without a victory in a major to 24 starts.
Apr 11 - 7:29 PM

Dustin Johnson converted a trio of eagles en route to a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his second round of the 79th Masters.

Never before has a competitor in this tournament holed more than two eagles in a single round, so DJ stands alone in that category. In fact, it's the first time during the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season that a golfer circled three on one card. It happened just twice in 2013-14, but not at all during the 2013 season. All of Johnson's eagles dropped in on par 5s -- Nos. 2, 8 and 15. He birdied 13, which is the remaining par 5 at Augusta National Golf Club. Oh, and consider that he hit only nine greens in regulation for the day. Talk about maximizing one's opportunities. He limited the damage to an opening double bogey-4 and bogey-5s and 10 and 18. At 7-under 137, the nine-time TOUR winner sits seven strokes back of the 36-hole lead.
Apr 10 - 6:14 PM

Dustin Johnson twirled a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in his opening round of the Masters.

He grinded out the red number after sitting 2-over through four holes. DJ then collected five birdies on his next nine to cover one bogey and finish three swings in arrears of the clubhouse co-leaders. He totaled 12 greens in regulation. This is his first major since taking six months off from competition. He's 4-for-5 at Augusta National but remains in pursuit of his first top 10. If he's not at the top of the list of the best golfers without a victory in a major, he may be the most dangerous. Expect him to keep the pedal down.
Apr 9 - 3:22 PM

Dustin Johnson fired a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the final round of the Valero Texas Open to secure a top-10 finish at 2-under 286.

Johnson circled six birdies, all inside of 10 feet, to go with three bogeys on his final lap around TPC San Antonio. He was on the bad half of the draw on Thursday and Friday, playing in morning on Thursday and afternoon on Friday. His first-round 78 in the worst of the wind certainly makes one wonder what could have been if he was on the favorable side of the draw. He played the weekend in 8-under.
Mar 29 - 3:56 PM

Dustin Johnson spun a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship to secure victory in just his fifth start since returning from a six-month sabbatical.

His 9-under 279 placed him ahead of J.B. Holmes by one stroke. Johnson circled four birdies and squared just one bogey on his lap around Trump National Doral's Blue Monster Course. He pulled away on the back nine thanks to a 10'5" birdie at the par-5 10th and a 13'7" birdie on the par-3 15th. DJ led the tournament in driving distance and was second in strokes gained: tee-to-green, as length and ball-striking were a key to all of those successful this week. This was his second win in a WGC, with the other representing his last win at the HSBC Champions in 2013. It's also his ninth PGA TOUR title and extends his streak of consecutive seasons with at least one to eight. With this victory, he is exempt into the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA Championship.
Mar 8 - 6:55 PM

Dustin Johnson conjured up a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship to take the clubhouse lead at 6-under 210.

Johnson caused quite the stir at Trump National Doral's Blue Monster Course when he aced the par-3 fourth hole with a 7-iron from 207 yards. He wasn't the only one to do so, as J.B. Holmes matched the feat two groups later. The rest of DJ's round featured three birdies and two bogeys. The shortest of those birdies occurred from 16'8" and the longest from 23'11", despite missing a few attempts from closer range. Barring a major gaffe by Holmes on the par-4 18th, DJ will not hold the 54-hole lead at day's end.
Mar 7 - 5:39 PM

Dustin Johnson settled for a 1-over-par 36-37=73 in his second round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

DJ went just 1-for-6 in scrambling en route to five bogeys at Trump National Doral today. And that set included a conversion from 12'5" at the par-4 18th hole. But he also converted four birdies, including rolls of 19-and-a-half feet and 15 feet at Nos. 11 and 6, respectively. So, at 3-under 141, he's inside the top 10 on the leaderboard and in position to strike on the weekend.
Mar 6 - 4:28 PM

Dustin Johnson opened the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship in 4-under-par 35-33=68, finishing six strokes off the overnight lead.

This week couldn't come soon enough. After last week's bloodbath at PGA National, DJ needed to rekindled positive thoughts. Consider the mission accomplished. He went 6-for-14 in scoring opportunities, grouping pairs of birdies three separate times. The set featured three from 17-23 feet. Johnson couldn't escape bogey-5s at Nos. 3 and 18, but the overall output is significantly better than last week's.
Mar 5 - 6:07 PM

Dustin Johnson completed 36 holes of The Honda Classic in 12-over-par 77-75=152 and will miss the cut.

Consider that when DJ signed his card today, he ranked T2 with nine birdies (remembering that the late draw is just beginning its second round) but sat 138th on the leaderboard. Overall, he split 12 (of 28) fairways and hit only 19 greens in regulation. Where he couldn't capitalize on his scoring opportunities, Johnson swallowed six bogeys, six doubles and a triple. It's a disappointing way to open the Florida Swing, especially after a T4 and P2 in his last two starts, but it's a surprise given his record at PGA National where his only payday in three tries is a T46 in 2013. Expect a rebound at Trump National Doral next week where he tied for fourth on the overhauled track last year.
Feb 27 - 4:36 PM

Dustin Johnson turned in a 2-under-par 34-35=69 for his work in the final round of the Northern Trust Open to share the clubhouse lead at 6-under 278.

If DJ doesn't ultimately win this tournament, he will rue his last three holes. After circling three birdies on his first 15 holes, including a 19'4" unlikely birdie at the par-4 15th, he missed a 10'9" birdie putt at he par-3 16th. He then made an unlikely bogey at the par-5 17th before missing a 9'3" birdie at the par-4 18th. Had any of those holes ended up a stroke lower, he would hold the lead by himself. He led the tournament in strokes gained: tee-to-green at the time of his posting despite splitting just half of his 14 fairways and landing just 10 greens in regulation in the finale. It's looking more and more like there will be a playoff for those finished at 6-under.
Feb 22 - 6:16 PM

Dustin Johnson crafted a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the Northern Trust Open to reach the 54-hole mark at 4-under 209.

Johnson bagged three birdies to just one bogey on each of his nines at Riviera Country Club, with all of thee birdies falling from seven feet and in with the exception of a 31'9" effort at the par-4 fifth hole. He was solid all day, narrowly missing several other birdie attempts along the way. It's worth noting that the bomber took advantage of each of the three par 5s. He actually lost strokes with the flat stick on the day, but gained well over four strokes tee-to-green. With a successful moving day in the books, he will try and take it deep on Sunday for a chance at a win.
Feb 21 - 3:47 PM

Dustin Johnson wrapped up his week on the Monterey Peninsula in style, signing for a 6-under-par 33-33=66 following his final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

DJ had already submitted three worthy rounds, but he really punctuated his return to competition in the broadest sense en route to today's top-five finish at 17-under 270. He landed only 10 greens in regulation, but converted on seven of those opportunities, all for birdie. Two ranged 11-15 feet. Meanwhile, he suffered just one bogey, that a 5 at the par 4 15th hole where his approach found a greenside bunker. Considering the rest and recharge the six-month break provided prior to a dusting off the rust at Torrey Pines and this week's success of putting four rounds together, he should be considered a contender at the Northern Trust Open where he placed second last year and has another three top 10s since 2009.
Feb 15 - 5:21 PM

The opening round of the Farmers Insurance Open was suspended for darkness at 5:16 p.m. PT.

The start of the tournament was delayed by a pair of 30-minute delays due to marine layer. After nine golfers completed one hole, play was halted until 11:40 a.m. With sunset at 5:26 p.m., there simply weren't enough daylight hours to squeeze in 156 golfers. So, 42 will return to the North and South Courses at Torrey Pines at 8:30 a.m. on Friday. We'll see about that as the weather forecast calls for dense fog in places before 11:00 a.m. Dustin Johnson will be among the set to complete his round on the South. He's 2-over-par through 17 holes. It includes five bogeys, but he recorded the shot of the day with an eagle hole-out from 159 yards at the par-4 fourth. This is his first action since the RBC Canadian Open in late July.
Feb 5 - 10:09 PM

Dustin Johnson's fiancée Paulina Gretzky gave birth to a boy on Monday.

A statement released by DJ's agent, David Winkle, read in its entirety: "Paulina and I are happy to announce the arrival of our baby boy, who was born in Los Angeles on Monday morning. Both Paulina and the baby are healthy, resting comfortably and in great spirits! We sincerely appreciate the outpouring of love and support we have received and plan to release further details in the coming days!" That's great news, but gamers are smiling because the birth did not preclude Johnson's planned return to competition at the Farmers Insurance Open on Feb. 5-8.
