Dustin Johnson endured an early Halloween in the final round of the WGC-HSBC Champions at Sheshan International GC; his horror show final round 5-over-par 38-39=77 totalling 12-under 276 for the week, T2, but ceding a pre-round six shot lead.
He insisted afterward that there was an element of confusion in his assessment of the shocking turn of events. "Felt like I actually drove it pretty well and even making the turn, I'm 2-over, which is fine," he said. "I know I've got to just play solid on the back nine, but I didn't make any putts. Rolled it good. Just nothing was going in the hole." Perhaps the pressure told because he then added: "Hit a couple really bad iron shots. I just chunked it on 14. Same thing on 15. And then bogeying 16, that's just bad." The latter refers to the short par-4. He was 60 yards from the green from the tee, flubbed into a bunker, escaped, but missed the 8'0" par putt. He had opened with back-to-back bogeys, but it was only late in the day he was passed. Blue numbers at 12, 15 and 16 his undoing as Justin Rose swept by and completed a two shot victory.

Dustin Johnson assumed control of the 2017 WGC-HSBC Champions with a powerful third round performance in blustery conditions; his 4-under-par 33-35=68 earned him a 17-under total of 199, fully six shots clear of his nearest pursuer Brooks Koepka at Sheshan International GC in Shanghai.

After 36 holes of frenzied scoring Saturday was a tougher proposition and Johnson's 68 was equal best for the day. More importantly he was the only player in contention for the title to total it - and yet he started both nines on the back foot. The front began with a bogey-5, but his third birdie of the week at No. 2 was the perfect bounce back and he ticked 4, 7 and 8 (from 25'0") before the turn. By this stage he had taken the lead thanks to Koepka making a ruinous eight at the 8th (a four shot swing), but the World No.1 then made double bogey-6 at 10. No matter, he circled 11, 14 and 16 to sprint clear of the field. He was so dialled in at 15 that his approach clattered into the pin on the fly, ricochetting 10 feet away; he didn't get the birdie he deserved. This is the largest 54-hole lead of his career. Four times he led by three at this stage, once by five. Only once did he cede those advantages, in the 2010 U.S. Open. He is chasing a third WGC title of 2017.

Winner of the 2013 WGC-HSBC Champions Dustin Johnson smashed a sensational second round of 9-under-par 34-29=63 to claim the halfway lead on 13-under 131 at Sheshan International GC in Shanghai, China.

The 33-year-old American caught and passed the pre-round leader Brooks Koepka, who now trails him by one shot heading into the weekend, with Justin Rose and Kiradech Aphibarnrat tied third, four back of Johnson who also carded 63 when he won the title four years ago. He followed that with two 66s which would be hard to beat this week, too. On the front nine Friday he made birdie at both of the par-5s before launching a back nine birdie blitz. There was one at 10, a pair at 12 and 13, and four-in-four from the 15th, ending with an up-and-down from short of the 18th green. He grabbed a new Spider putter before the round: "It was going where I was looking so I put it in the bag," he said afterwards. He's hunting his fifth win of the year and his sixth WGC title. Only Tiger Woods (18) has more.

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson hoisted the hardware at the 2014 World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions and returns this week for another crack at Sheshan International.

DJ will be making his first start of the new season, and first start since the Presidents Cup where he went 4-0-1 to lead the Americans in total points for the week. Now he'll open the new season on familiar grounds, returning to the site of his 2014 victory. In 12 rounds at Sheshan he's posted red numbers in 10 of them, signing for 66 or better in five of them. Johnson may have a bit of rust after some time off and potential jet lag. Other than that, DJ is an elite option in all fantasy formats this week.

In Sunday singles at the Presidents Cup, Dustin Johnson halved his match with Branden Grace and exits as the top point-getter with 4.5 points and a record of 4-0-1.

Johnson held leads after 13 of the holes played today but never built more than a 2 UP lead. In a quest to go unbeaten and untied for the week, he won hole 1 with birdie (11'6") and 3 with par, before Grace won the fifth with a concession. Johnson went back to 2 UP with birdie-3 at five but Grace won the eighth with his first birdie of the match, holing out from 31'1" away. Grace leveled the proceeding with a tap-in birdie at the ninth but Johnson went 1 UP at 10 with a concession. Hole 12 was halved with birdie-3s before Grace won 13 with birdie-3 to square the match. Johnson went back to 1 UP with birdie-3 at 15 (12'6") but lost the 17th on concession and that's how it would end. Grace gains his first win of the week and departs with a 1-2-2 record.

Defending champ and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson handed in a 7-under-par 32-32=64 after the final round of the BMW Championship for a four-day total of 8-under 276, up 24 spots to T31 with play still in progress.

The two-time BMW champ never factored, opening in 71-72-69 before an eight-birdie one-bogey showing. He entered the week at 3rd in the FedExCup standings and is projected to remain there heading to East Lake. The 33-year-old and reigning TOUR POY has four wins this season, including the kickoff Playoffs event at THE NORTHERN TRUST to regain the No. 1 spot in the FEC standings, but immediately lost that spot with T18 (Dell) and this week's uninspiring effort, the final round notwithstanding.

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson is trending nicely ahead of his appearance at this week's BMW Championship, playing the role of defending champion at the event held in Lake Forest, Illinois.

After a three-event mid-season slump, DJ arrives with five straight top 20s, including a win at THE NORTHERN TRUST. He appears to be over the injury that plagued him for a brief period, gaining an average of 8.3 strokes tee-to-green over his last five starts. While DJ will have the title of defending champion this week, the host course is moving from Crooked Stick to Conway Farms Golf Club. In two attempts at Conway Farms, DJ has two very different results. He posted a T62 (2013) but returned two years later to finish T7. He arrives in even better form this time around, making him a top-tier option in all fantasy formats.

First-round leader and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson authored a bogey-free 5-under-par 35-31=66 in the third round of the Dell Technologies Championship to post 9-under 204, up 11 spots on the live leaderboard to T4, three shy of playing competitor and 54-hole clubhouse leader Justin Thomas, who shot 63. UPDATE: With play completed, Johnson is T7, three back of co-leaders Thomas and Marc Leishman.

The FedExCup leader followed an opening 66 with 72 and rebounded with another 66 on Day 3, circling four of his final five holes. He landed 10 (of 14) fairways and pelted 15 greens in regulation, currently No. 1 in GIR at a cumulative 81.48% (44/54). The 33-year-old circled five (for a third day in a row) at holes 3, 14-16 and 18, two from between 10 and 45 feet, adding a pitch-in birdie-3 at 15 from 19'9" away. He recorded 1.733 putts per GIR and -0.021 SG: Putting, taking 28 total putts.

Overnight leader and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson back-pedaled to a 1-over-par 35-37=72 in the second round of the Dell Technologies Championship, falling 14 spots on the live leaderboard to T15 on 4-under 138, five in arrears of 36-hole leader Jon Rahm.

The FedExCup leader hit eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, currently No. 1 in GIR at 80.56 percent (29/36). He gained 0.133 strokes off-the-tee and 0.340 approaching-the-green, but lost 2.031 around-the-green. The 33-year-old carded five birdies at holes 1, 2, 6, 14 and 18, all from inside of 11 feet, outbalanced by two bogey-4s at 3 and 8, and two double bogey-6s at 10 and 15, none of his drops included any penalty strokes. He posted 1.692 putts per GIR and -0.355 SG: Putting, taking 29 total putts.
Sep 2 - 6:42 PM

Riding a wave of momentum from last week's win, Dustin Johnson twirled a 5-under-par 35-31=66 during round one of the Dell Technologies Championship, claiming the early lead in the clubhouse as the afternoon wave gets underway.

DJ opened his week with a 36'6" birdie bomb at the par-4 10th to set the tone for the day. His putter cooled off from there, but his ball-striking didn't. Johnson would give himself five scoring chances from inside seven feet, including the most notable which came at the par-5 18th. It was there that he stuck his 221-yard approach to 4'5" for a stress-free eagle. Johnson walked off the course gaining 5.547 strokes tee-to-green (No. 1 in the field at the time). After a mini mid-season-slump, Johnson is firing on all cylinders once again.
Sep 1 - 2:18 PM

Second-round co-leader and past champ Dustin Johnson painted a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the final round of THE NORTHERN TRUST, erasing a three-shot deficit to catch playing competitor and 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth on 13-under 267, and then defeated him with birdie-3 on the first hole of sudden death, the par-4 18th, improving his record in sudden death to 1-1.

The 33-year-old, a pre-tourney 14/1 outright, bags his 16th PGA TOUR title in his 218th career start. It's his fourth win of the season, first since the WGC-Match Play 10 starts ago, tying Justin Thomas for the season lead. The 2011 winner (Plainfield CC), claims his fourth FedExCup Playoffs victory in 30 events, second in his last three tries (2016, BMW Championship), and regains the No. 1 spot in the FEC standings. After opening in 65-69-67, he began in solo 2nd. Playing out of the final twosome, he hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting 2.001 SG: Off-the-Tee and 1.776 SG: Approach-the-Green. The World No. 1 circled four at Nos. 9, 10, 13 and 15 (from 17'7"), and forced extra time with a 17'5" par-saver at the last. In sudden death, he followed a 341-yard drive with a 94-yard laser to 43 inches, which he dropped for the win.
Aug 27 - 6:36 PM

Overnight quad-leader and past champ Dustin Johnson orchestrated a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of THE NORTHERN TRUST to reach 9-under 201, down one spot to solo 2nd, three shy of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth, who fired a day-tying-low 64.

After opening in 65-69, the 2011 champ co-led with three others, including Spieth. Playing out of the final twosome with Jhonattan Vegas (72), he found 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.152 strokes approaching-the-green and 1.157 around-the-green. The Coastal Carolina product, sporting a new putter this week, squared a lone bogey-5 at No. 8, offset by four birdies at 3, 5, 13 and 18, all from inside of seven feet. He recorded 1.692 putts per GIR and -0.423 SG: Putting, taking 28 total putts. Johnson is chasing his 16th career TOUR title, fourth this season, and first since the WGC-Match Play back in March.
Aug 26 - 6:21 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, past champ and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson carved out a 1-under-par 36-33=69 in the second round of THE NORTHERN TRUST to reach 6-under 134, up one spot to T1 and good for a share of the early 36-hole clubhouse lead with Jhonattan Vegas and playing competitor Rickie Fowler. UPDATE: With play completed, Johnson is tied for the lead with three others. It's his 12th career 36-hole lead/co-lead, previously 6-for-11 converting.

The 2011 champ (Plainfield CC) landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 0.908 strokes off-the-tee, 0.737 approaching-the-green and 0.726 around-the-green. He was blemish-free 3-under thru 12 holes, circling Nos. 11, 14 and 3, all from inside of 10 feet, but completed his scoring with back-to-back bogey-5s at 4 and 5, both on failed scrambles. The Coastal Carolina product posted a pedestrian 1.786 putts per GIR and 0.158 SG: Putting, taking 29 total putts. He missed two scoring tries from inside of seven feet but did drop a 12-foot 5-inch par-saver on 8, his second-to-last hole, to avoid further damage.
Aug 25 - 1:39 PM

Dustin Johnson blitzed Glen Oaks Club to the tune of a 5-under-par 34-31=65 during round one of THE NORTHERN TRUST, placing him one off the pace set by Russell Henley.

DJ entered the week ranked 4th in the FedExCup race. He'd love to stay inside the coveted top-5 slot ahead of East Lake, while he'd also love to pick up a few wins and make the Player of the Year race a little interesting. So far, so good, for Johnson who gained 2.304 strokes off-the-tee today in addition to 2.658 strokes gained on approach. That helped him setup eight scoring chances from inside 12 feet today, converting on five of them. His sixth birdie came from 17'3" at the par-3 sixth hole. After a mini-slump that took place in June and July, DJ has rattled off three straight top 20s and appears to be approaching top form again, just in time for the Playoffs.
Aug 24 - 6:19 PM

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson has shown signs of form ahead of his attempted title defense at this week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

DJ has finished T54 or worse in three of his last four starts, including a pair of missed cuts. That is very uncharacteristic for the big hitter, but there is a sign of form on the horizon. A third-round 6-under 64 rocketed him up to T7 at The Open before he faded on Sunday. Last week, he gained 6.6 strokes approaching-the-green at the RBC Canadian Open, but couldn't find the bottom of the cup with the putter. Johnson still managed a T8 despite losing 0.4 strokes putting on the week. This mini-slump may be a thing of the past as DJ preps for a title defense at Firestone CC. Last year he cruised to twin 66s over the weekend to climb from T22 to the winner's circle. Oddly enough, that was his first top 10 at this event in seven tries.
