Dustin Johnson whiffed during his 2011 Presidents Cup debut but heads to Incheon, Korea, for a chance at redemption this week.
DJ has a less-than-stellar track record in team competition, owning a career team record of 3-5-1 between The Presidents Cup and Ryder Cup. On the bright side, his singles record in those events is 2-1-0. He arrives off a season where he posted top 10s in 11-of-21 starts. No longer playing as the up-and-coming young pup, Johnson could use this week to establish himself as as someone the United States can count on in future team competitions. Oct 5 - 9:49 PM

Dustin Johnson lit up East Lake Golf Club in the finale to post a 6-under-par 34-30=64 and concluded his sixth TOUR Championship appearance at 4-under 276, currently solo fifth on the leaderboard.

After opening in 69-72-71, Johnson began the day at 2-over in solo 17th-place. On his round, he striped 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 13 greens in regulation converting on seven for a sparkling 1.538 putts per GIR. DJ played his first seven holes in birdie-less 1-over after squaring bogey at the third prior to back-to-back birdies at Nos. 8 and 9 to turn 1-under. Following the break, he added birdies at 10 and 11 for four consecutive, the former a bomb from 64'0" and the latter rolling in from 25'1". The 31-year-old added a 15-footer at the 13th, a seven-footer at the par-5 15th and an eight-footer at the 17th to complete his scoring. All told, he played his last 11 holes in 7-under to post his third top 10 of the Playoffs and 11th on the season in 21 starts. His 64 is the second-lowest loop of the week (Stenson: 63/R1) and a personal best in 24 career rounds at East Lake.

Dustin Johnson scored 1-under-par 34-35=69 in today's opening round of the TOUR Championship.

Back at East Lake after skipping the Playoffs entirely last year, DJ picked up where he left off a solo fifth in 2013, finishing that edition with a 69. In today's effort, he landed 14 greens in regulation and circled four birdies, the most notable from 36'5" at the par-4 third hole and 17'10" at the par-4 seventh. Johnson scrambled for par just once on the other four holes, settling for three bogeys, but he checked up just four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Dustin Johnson prepares for his sixth appearance in the TOUR Championship at East Lake Golf Club and checks in at No. 7 in the FedExCup standings.

Perhaps this will be the week Johnson finally overcomes his three-putt meltdown on the 72nd hole of the 115th U.S. Open. He did his best to put it behind him in his next two starts, beginning The Open Championship in 65-69 and the WGC-Bridgestone in 69-67, but closed the respective tournaments in 75-75 and 75-76. In his 27th major appearance at the PGA, DJ went T7 (66-73-68-69) and opened the postseason with four rounds at par-or-better (first time since the Memorial), when T9 at The Barclays. He chased with T44 at the Deutsche Bank and T7 last week at the BMW (71-62-68-70). At East Lake, the 31-year-old was solo second after 54 holes in 2013, eventually settling for solo fifth.
Sep 23 - 11:54 AM

Past champ Dustin Johnson recovered from a disastrous start to post an even-par 38-32=70 in the final round of the BMW Championship to wrap at 13-under 271, good for a three-way tie for seventh place.

Johnson hoisted the hardware in 2010 at the BMW (Cog Hill G&CC) and this year's effort gave him three top 10s in six appearances. After opening in 71, career-tying low 62, and 68, the 31-year-old appeared to be on his way to another forgettable final round this season after squaring bogey at the fourth and double bogey-6 at the sixth in a birdie-less front nine. He was still 3-over on the day after circling his first birdie at the 12th and dropping another shot at the 13th, but he responded with four birdies over his last five and a par save at the 16th from 18'11". DJ has now recorded three top 10s in his last four starts and 10th on the season (20 events). He heads to East Lake seventh in the FedExCup standings.
Sep 20 - 8:24 PM

Dustin Johnson closed out the third round of this week's BMW Championship with a 3-under-par 36-32=68 to reach 12-under 201.

DJ kept the birdie barrage going in round three, but couldn't avoid the big numbers unfortunately. He circled seven birdies on the day, but gave back a four-pack of strokes on the front nine, including a double bogey 6 on the seventh hole. Uncharacteristically, he walked off the course with just 0.311 strokes gained:tee-to-green but a whopping 2.334 strokes gained:putting. Johnson entered the week eighth on the FedExCup standings and will try to play his way into the coveted top five before next week.
Sep 19 - 5:56 PM

Dustin Johnson blitzed Conway Farms Golf Club for a bogey-free, 9-under-par 30-32=62 in the second round of the BMW Championship.

DJ opened with an even-par 71, so at 9-under 133, he's nine strokes off the pace of 36-hole clubhouse leader Jason Day. Johnson missed only one green in regulation today and poured in seven birdies before walking off with eagle from off the green seven yards away at the par-5 18th. Five of his birdies ranged 10-16 feet. When the score was official, it matched his career-low aggregate in 591 rounds on the PGA TOUR. It's the third time he's achieved it and the second this season (third round, AT&T Byron Nelson Championship).
Sep 18 - 4:40 PM

Past champ Dustin Johnson crafted a 5-under-par 30-35=65 in the final round of The Barclays to wrap his seventh appearance at 8-under 272, matching Jason Bohn's 72-hole clubhouse mark.

Johnson began the finale at 3-under (T26) and eight adrift. After making nine birdies thru his first 54 holes, DJ penciled seven on Sunday to move up 19 spots on the live leaderboard. Four of his seven par breakers came on his first nine to turn 4-under. After the break, he added circles at Nos. 11, 12 and 18 to outpace two bogeys at the par-4 10th and the par-3 14th, respectively. At the time he signed his card, Johnson ranked second in the tournament in driving distance at 328.4 yards, but it didn't translate into par-5 scoring, recording just one birdie (today) over four days of play (six pars, one bogey). Nonetheless, the 31-year-old sits T7 on the live leaderboard. If it holds, it'll be his fourth top-10 finish at The Barclays, highlighted by his win in the hurricane-shortened 2011 edition.
Aug 30 - 4:15 PM

Dustin Johnson signed for an even-par 37-33=70 following his opening round of The Barclays.

Although he found only five (of 14) fairways and nine greens in regulation, there's more good news than the alternative at Plainfield. First, he completed 18 holes. This was questionable after his withdrawal during Wednesday's pro-am due to issues related to an illness he hasn't been able to shake. Second, despite the limited scoring chances, DJ connected for an eagle-2 (from inside nine feet at the drivable, par-4 fourth hole) and two birdies. His longest conversion disappeared for par from 10'4" at the par-4 fifth. last check, he sat four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Dustin Johnson withdrew during today's pro-am at The Barclays due to an illness.

First JD, now DJ. This statement was issued by Johnson's management firm to explain why its client was also scratched. "Unfortunately, Dustin was forced to withdraw from The Barclays Pro-Am this morning due to illness. He has been battling severe chest congestion since the middle of last week, ‎which has led to sleepless nights and fatigue. After playing seven holes today, it became evident that he needed to leave the course and get as much rest as possible before tomorrow's opening round. He is now under a doctor's care, in hopes of a speedy recovery. Needless to say, he is doing everything possible to be ready for the important weeks ahead." Johnson won The Barclays when it was last contested at Plainfield Country Club in 2011. An illness is always better than an injury to gamers, but given how long he's been battling this and the fact that he's seventh in the FedExCup standings, consider him a risky option in all formats.
Aug 26 - 3:02 PM

Dustin Johnson rallied to a 3-under-par 38-31=69 in today's final round of the 97th PGA Championship to finish up at 12-under 276, good for a three-way tie for seventh place but eight swings back of champion Jason Day.

Johnson began the day at 9-under (T8) and six back. He suffered more torture at Whistling Straits right off the bat, opening with a quadruple bogey-8 at the first. He bounced back with birdie at the par-5 second (from 4'8") before squaring back-to-back bogeys at the third and fourth to play his first four holes in 5-over. DJ fought back with three straight birdies on Nos. 5-7 to turn 2-over. After the break, the rebound continued with circles at 10 and 12 sandwiching an eagle-3 at the 11th from 50'7". Johnson rolled in a par putt at 15 from 9'9" before dropping yet another eagle from the fringe (33'10" from the target) on the par-5 16th. He squared bogey at the 17th after missing the green in regulation, one of eight missed GIR on the day. Following the horrendous beginning, the 31-year-old played his final 14 holes in 8-under to secure his fourth top 10 at the PGA in six attempts.

Dustin Johnson responded with a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the third round of the 97th PGA Championship to post 9-under 207, currently solo ninth on the live leaderboard.

Johnson began the day at 5-under and in a five-way tie for 10th, six shots adrift. In an effort to exorcise past (2010 PGA) and recent demons (2015 U.S. Open), he hid a lone bogey at the par-3 third with five birdies at Nos. 2, 6, 11, 14 and 16. After playing the four par 5s in a birdie-less, 1-over in yesterday's loop, DJ capitalized today with birdie on three of four. In total, the 31-year-old split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, converting on five, four from inside six feet. He rolled in a 14-footer on the par-4 14th for his long of the day, adding a 10-footer for par on the 17th. Johnson was T2 after 54 holes at Whistling Straits in 2010 before settling for T5 following the much-publicized two-stroke penalty on the 72nd hole. In the season's first three majors, he's finished T6 (Masters), T2 (U.S. Open) and T49 at The Open Championship.
Aug 15 - 7:47 PM

First-round leader Dustin Johnson settled for a 1-over-par 35-38=73 in his second round of the PGA Championship, reaching the halfway point in 5-under 139.

Oh, DJ. He piped only six (of 14) fairways and hit nine greens in regulation in his two-day second round. The imprecision led to four bogeys against three birdies, the longest of which stretching 28-and-a-half feet at the par-4 10th hole. At the time he signed his card, it was the highest second-round score of anyone inside the top 35 on the leaderboard. We've come to expect this from the 31-year-old, but it's no less aggravating to swallow when it happens.
Aug 15 - 9:34 AM

Dustin Johnson fashioned a 6-under-par 32-34=66 in today's opening round of the 97th PGA Championship to assume outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

While DJ was composed during his presser earlier this week, you were of the sense that Thursday couldn't have rolled around soon enough so that he tackle Whistling Straits for the first time since that fateful Sunday afternoon in August of 2010. Now armed with the firm knowledge of where he can and can't ground his club, he played extremely well. Johnson hit 15 greens in regulation and converted an eagle from 27-and-a-half feet at the par-5 16th hole. He complemented with five birdie, including a round-long 16'2" at the par-4 10th where he opened his round.
Aug 13 - 2:19 PM

Dustin Johnson blew up for a 5-over-par 38-37=75 in today's third round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and posted 1-over 211, 10 strokes back of the 54-hole co-leaders.

This is exactly what gamers feared. DJ found only four (of 14) fairways and six greens in regulation at Firestone today. He erased his lone birdie (at the par-5 second hole) with four bogeys and a double. And this could have been much worse if not for respective par saves from 11'7", 23'8" and 12'5" at Nos. 4, 17 and 18. It's the second consecutive time that Johnson has signed for a 75 after his third round in this tournament. After his 75 in 2013, he rebounded with 67, but it's anyone's guess how he'll answer today's fade. It was only three weeks ago that he closed out The Open Championship with a pair of 75s.
