Dustin Johnson carved out a 1-under-par 35-36=71 on day four of the 80th Masters for a four-day total of 1-under 287, up one spot on the leaderboard to a three-way T4, four back of champion Danny Willett.
Johnson finished first in strokes gained: putting at last week's Houston Open, but it didn't carry over, particularly in today's finale. Making his seventh Masters appearance, with a previous best of T6 last year, he began his final frame on even-par (T5) after opening in 73-71-72. The 31-year-old, twice a major runner-up in 27 prior appearances, missed birdie from 9'0" at the par-5 second and from 5'0" at the par-4 third. He took four to get on the par-4 fifth two-putting for his first double bogey-6 and later three-putted the 17th for his second. In-between, he circled birdies on Nos. 6 (hole-out from five yards), 8 after missing eagle from 13'0", 9, and two-putted the 13th and 15th for birdies after missing eagle tries from 20'0" and 13'0", respectively.

Dustin Johnson carved out an even-par 36-36=72 in today's third round of the 80th Masters to post even-par 216, up three on the live leaderboard to T5. UPDATE: With play completed, Johnson trails 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth by three.

Johnson began the third round of his seventh Masters at T8 on even-par after opening in 73-71. He found just seven (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation but recorded a stellar 1.61 putts per GIR. The 31-year-old, who entered off back-to-back top-five finishes the last two weeks, toured Augusta National without a three-putt after suffering three the first two days. He exchanged two birdies, both from inside of nine feet, with two bogeys and went 6-for-8 in scrambling, including a sand save on the par-4 18th.
Apr 9 - 6:31 PM

Dustin Johnson slapped on his wind gear and twirled a 1-under-par 36-35=71 during the second round of the 80th Masters, racking up a score of even-par 144 to sit four strokes off the leader, Jordan Spieth.

DJ striped 10 (of 14) fairways in route to 11 greens hit. His pure ball-striking makes him one of the finest wind players on TOUR and it showed today as he offset a trio of bogeys with a four-pack of birdies. The damage was all done tee-to-green as he didn't record a made putt outside 10 feet. Johnson tied for the low round of the day today, and was one of just four golfers to record an under-par round.
Apr 8 - 7:25 PM

Dustin Johnson signed for a 3-under-par 35-34=69 after the final round of the Shell Houston Open to wrap his fifth appearance on 13-under 275, two swings back of champion Jim Herman.

Johnson's solo third was a season best on eight starts and his fourth top five, and also eclipsed a previous best at the SHO (T4/2013). He began his final frame in a three-way T3 on 10-under after rounds of 65-71-70. The 31-year-old joined the overnight co-leaders with a 22'8" birdie on the par-4 first but bogeyed the par-4 fifth (failed scramble) and then missed birdie from 5'5" at the par-4 sixth. He rebounded with a 19'4" birdie-2 on seven from the fringe to turn 1-under and one back. Johnson circled another from the fringe at the 10th and two-putted for birdie after driving the par-4 12th, but in-between, swallowed a double bogey-6 after hitting his second into the water. He bounced back with back-to-back birdies on 14 and 15, but concluded with three straight pars.
Apr 3 - 7:27 PM

Dustin Johnson tossed up a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in today's third round of the Shell Houston Open for a 54-hole total of 10-under 206, one swing back of co-leaders Jim Herman and Jamie Lovemark.

This is Johnson's fifth Shell with his only cash a T4 in 2013. He began his third round on 8-under (T3) after opening in 65-71, two adrift of 36-hole leader Charley Hoffman. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he split a week-best eight (of 14) fairways but digressed to a week-low eight greens in regulation. The 31-year-old erased three birdies with three bogeys and added an eagle on the par-5 eighth from 17'11". It's his second eagle of the week, ranking first in the field in that category. All four of Johnson's par breakers were from greater than nine feet with two in the 17-foot range. Thru three rounds, he's 52nd in strokes gained: tee-to-green (-0.978 in R3), but perhaps shockingly, he's No. 1 in strokes gained: putting at 9.103, including a 3.373 in R3 to keep him in the mix.
Apr 2 - 8:06 PM

Dustin Johnson patched together a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the second round of the Shell Houston Open for a two-day total of 8-under 136, down one spot on the leaderboard to T3 with play suspended for the evening due to darkness.

The suspension stranded 27 but Johnson was able to get his round into the books, barely. A 90-minute lightning delay in the morning made it iffy, but his was the last threesome off No. 1 tee of the afternoon wave to get done. Five groups behind his as well as those remaining who went off the 10th tee will be returning on Saturday morning at 7:45 a.m. CT to complete their second rounds. Johnson began his second frame in a four-way T2, one back of 18-hole leader Charley Hoffman, and after three birdies against two bogeys, he's two shy of Hoffman who leads on 10-under 134. The 31-year-old's most memorable birdie was a 68'7" bomb on the par-3 ninth and added a 12-footer at the par-4 12th.
Apr 1 - 10:38 PM

Dustin Johnson torched Golf Club of Houston’s Tournament Course to the tune of a 7-under-par 31-34=65 during the opening round of the Shell Houston Open to stake claim of the early clubhouse lead.

Distance trumped accuracy today as DJ missed eight (of 14) fairways but walked off the course leading the field in driving distance. The weapon of choice all day was the flat stick as he rolled in five putts from outside 11 feet. That included a 29-footer for birdie on the par-4 12th and a walk-off birdie from 23'8" on the par-3 ninth hole. Johnson's last appearance at this venue was in 2014 where he posted an 8-over 80 before withdrawing with back stiffness. Today's round that included an eagle on the par-5 eighth hole, was 15 strokes better.
Mar 31 - 2:20 PM

Eighth-seeded Dustin Johnson knocked out the 9-seed Patrick Reed 3-and-2 in Round of 16 action at the WGC-Dell Match Play and will square off against 16-seed Louis Oosthuizen in the Round of 8.

Johnson was the Group 8 playoff winner with a 2-1-0 record while Reed emerged from Group 9 with a perfect 3-0-0 mark. Each player enjoyed a 1 up margin in the first nine holes with Reed striking first with birdie at the par-5 sixth before Johnson won the seventh with birdie and the ninth with par to turn 1 up. Reed got back to level with par at the 10th, but DJ took command starting at the 11th with a run of birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie to take a 3 up lead, and then closed out Reed with a birdie-4 at 16, his seventh circle of the match. This is Johnson's first time reaching the quarterfinals in his eighth Match Play appearance.
Mar 26 - 2:24 PM

8-seed Dustin Johnson eliminated 22-seed Jimmy Walker 2-and-1 on Friday at the WGC-Dell Match Play and then won Group 8 with a birdie on the first playoff hole (par-4 first) over 37-seed Kiradech Aphibarnrat.

Johnson and Aphibarnrat went to extra time with matching 2-1-0 records, but DJ made quick work of the Thai rolling in a 6'8" birdie for the winner. Earlier, the 31-year-old never trailed against the Texan Walker (1-2-0), taking a 2-up lead with back-to-back birdies on Nos. 4 and 5. He extended to 3 up with a circle on the par-4 eighth, and would turn 2 up after Walker won the ninth with his first birdie of the match. Johnson, making his eighth straight Match Play appearance, won the 10th with par and the 14th with birdie-3, enough to offset Walker's birdies to win holes 12 and 15. DJ will face 9-seed Patrick Reed in the Round of 16.
Mar 25 - 8:09 PM

Dustin Johnson bounced back from an opening loss with a 5-and-4 takedown of Kiradech Aphribarnrat in the second round of the World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play.

DJ lost his opening match to Robert Streb, but came out swinging in round two. He started out with a 382-yard drive onto the green at the par-4 first hole, grabbing a tap-in birdie to set the tone. The Thai may have felt the intimidation as he bogeyed the following hole to find himself in a quick two-hole deficit. Johnson went straight for the jugular two holes later, splashing in a 15'6" birdie. He was able to cruise home from there to reach 1-1-0 on the week. Group 8 is now in a deadlock with everyone entering round three at 1-1-0 and a chance to advance into the round of 16.
Mar 24 - 3:56 PM

Defending champ Dustin Johnson crashed and burned to a 7-over-par 37-42=79 in the final round of the WGC-Cadillac Championship for a four-day total of 2-under 286, down 12 spots on the leaderboard and into a three-way T14.

DJ's playing partner and 54-hole leader Rory McIlroy didn't fare much better with a one-birdie 74, but his final-round 79 is easily his worst in 32 career rounds on the Blue Monster (previously 76, two times). He opened his title defense in 72, tourney-low 64, and 71 to trail McIlroy by three. Two birdies, one bogey, and four doubles later, he finished a distant 10 adrift of champion Adam Scott, who shot 69. The 31-year-old found just four (of 14) fairways, nine greens in regulation, and staggered-in with a -5.046 in strokes gained: total. He made the turn in 1-over, but went double-double-bogey-double on holes 10-13. Johnson's 79 was bad, but not a season worst, that distinction goes to his final-round 80 in the weather-plagued two-day finale at the Farmers.
Mar 6 - 9:10 PM

Defending champ Dustin Johnson patched together a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in today's third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship for a three-day total of 9-under 207.

DJ trailed by five entering the finale last year and wound up winning by one after a final-round 69. This edition, he's paired with 54-hole leader Rory McIlroy in the final twosome come Sunday and trails the Ulsterman by three. Looking to add his 10th TOUR title and third WGC crown, the 31-year-old began day three trailing 36-hole leader Adam Scott by two after opening in 72-64. He reached the break at even, exchanging birdie-4 at the first from 5'2" with a failed scramble at the par-3 fourth -- missing his par putt from 48 inches. Johnson played the first eight holes of his inward half in bogey-free 2-under circling birdies at 12 and 16 from between six and 15 feet, but then missed his par putt from 42 inches on the 18th for a failed up-and-down, his second on six missed greens. He's averaging 27 putts per round thru 54 holes but has progressively worsened from 25/R1 and 27/R2, to 29 in R3.
Mar 5 - 6:44 PM

Dustin Johnson jolted up the leaderboard with a bogey-free, 8-under-par 33-31=64 during the second round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship, arriving to the halfway mark at 8-under 136.

The defending champion took a victory lap yesterday on his way to an even-par opener. He put his foot back on the gas today, tallying three birdies on the front nine to make the turn at 3-under 33. He added five more circles coming in, grabbing them at Nos. 10, 11, 13, 16, and 17. It was an absolute ball-striking clinic today, as he walked off the 18th green with 6.883 (of 7.703) strokes gained coming in the tee-to-green variety. On the day, he striped 10 (of 14) fairways, while averaging 321.1 yards off the tee, and converted that into 16 greens hit. Today's blemish-free round is the low round of the week so far and shows the true potential of Johnson when he's clicking on all cylinders. Despite his fantastic second round, DJ sits two strokes off the current lead, and has two more battles with Trump National Doral’s Blue Monster.
Mar 4 - 5:49 PM

Defending champ Dustin Johnson returns to the Blue Monster for this week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship, and goes off No. 10 tee on Thursday at 11:43 a.m. ET with England's Justin Rose and Australia's Adam Scott.

It's been one year since DJ raced past 54-hole leader J.B. Holmes with a final-round 69 to win by one. It was his second WGC trophy (2014 HSBC Champions) and ninth TOUR title overall. He's not won anywhere since, but enters off a solo fourth at Riviera CC in his last start (68-66-68-69), his third top 10 of the season on five starts. The 31-year-old posted top-10 finishes last season in three of the four majors and three (of four) FedExCup Playoff events, concluding with T5 at the TOUR Championship. Overall, this week marks his 24th start in WGC events.
Mar 1 - 8:30 PM

Dustin Johnson shot a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in today's final round of the Northern Trust Open to post 13-under 271, down two spots to solo fourth and two strokes in arrears to champion Bubba Watson.

After opening in 68-66-68, the two-time and back-to-back NTO runner-up was one adrift of 54-hole leader Watson. Playing in the penultimate threesome, he missed eagle at the par-5 first from 8'1", settling for a two-putt birdie and then three-putted the second from 48'10" for bogey-5. The 31-year-old, pursuing 10th TOUR title in his 184th career start, added his second circle from 13'8" at the par-4 seventh but once again, gave it right back on eight with a failed scramble. He sandwiched his third (and final) bogey at 12 (failed scramble) with birdies at 11 and 13 before playing his final five holes in four pars and his fifth circle at the par-5 17th. DJ settles for his sixth top 10 at Riviera CC in nine starts and his fifth top-five finish. He co-led the field in birdies with 22 but was T20 in bogeys with nine.
