Prior to the start of the event, Dustin Johnson has backed out of this week's Shell Houston Open, instead turning his attention toward Augusta National Golf Club for the first major of the year. Scott Stallings earns a spot in the field in his place.
Johnson has used the Golf Club of Houston on five occasions to prep for the Masters. That includes a third-place finish last year, a mid-tournament WD in 2014, and a T4 in 2013. This year he's decided to alter his plans after originally committing at the deadline but deciding otherwise after hoisting the boots at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play. That was the third straight win for the World No. 1 (Genesis Open, WGC-Mexico Championship) so there was really nothing to gain by entering this week's event. With Johnson's form in top gear, he will head down Magnolia Lane next week as one of the clear favorites. Mar 27 - 12:48 PM

1-seed Dustin Johnson staved off 21-seed Jon Rahm 1 UP to claim the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play for his 15th TOUR title in 208 career starts, third this season and third straight, and became the first player to win all four WGC titles.

This was the 32-year-old's ninth Match Play with a previous best of T5 last year where he won his Group but lost in the quarters (3-2-0 record). He went a perfect 7-0-0 this year en route to his fifth overall WGC title in 29 tries. The South Carolina native began his 3-win streak at the Genesis Open, where he had to play 36 holes on Sunday, and had to play 36 again today, outlasting Hideto Tanihara 1 UP in the semis. The World No. 1, who never trailed a single hole all week, built a commanding 5 UP lead thru eight against the 22-year-old Spaniard, but Rahm trimmed that to three with par wins at 9 and 10. DJ won the 12th with birdie-4, now 4 UP with six to go, but Rahm won 13, 15 and 16 with birdies. The duo traded a couple of hair-raising pars for the final margin with DJ shooting the equivalent of 1-under 70 (three birdies) and Rahm 71 (three birdies).

Top-seeded Dustin Johnson outlasted 54-seed Hideto Tanihara 1 UP in semifinals play of the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play and moves on to the Championship Match against first-timer and 21-seed Jon Rahm.

Johnson goes to 6-0-0 while Tanihara drops to 4-1-1 and plays for 3rd place vs. Bill Haas. The World No. 1 won the first with birdie (from 24'4"), lost the second (3-putt from 48'9"), and won the third with a 16-foot par-saver from the fringe (16'6"), despite hitting his tee shot OB. He went 2 UP with a 35'7" sidewinder for eagle at the par-5 sixth, and 3 UP with a 9-footer for birdie-2 at seven. Tanihara won his second hole, first with birdie, circling the eighth (7'9") after DJ missed his from 8'7", now 2 DOWN. Tanihara won the 10th (2-putt par) after DJ lipped a par-saver from 6'1". Johnson won the 12th with birdie-4 (8'0") to go 2 UP with Tanihara 3-putting from 18 feet for par. Tanihara fought back to all square though, circling the 13th and the 14th. DJ got back to 1 UP with birdie at the par-5 17th (6'5") and closed out with an 8'4" par-saver while Tanihara missed a 12-footer for birdie to extend the match.

1-seed Dustin Johnson, who lost as an 8-seed in last year's quarterfinals, outlasted 8-seed Alex Noren 3-and-2 in this year's quarters of the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play and moves on to the semifinals where he'll face first-timer and 54-seed Hideto Tanihara, who beat 47-seed Ross Fisher 4-and-2.

This was a battle of the only two top-10 seeds that made it to the Round of 16, which was completed earlier today. Noren exits with a 4-1-0 record and a T5 in his third appearance, bettering a T17 on last visit in 2013. Overall, this was the Swede's 13th WGC event, and first top 10 (T12, 2017 HSBC). For Johnson, he improves to 5-0-0 after circling seven birdies against two bogeys. While he never trailed, building as much as a 3 UP lead two separate times (before the final margin), including when the duo reached the turn. However, beginning at No. 10, the World No. 1 lost three holes in a row, two of those with bogeys, falling all the way back to all square. He showed his moxie though, birdieing three of his next four holes, each from between four and 11 feet, ending the festivities with birdie at the par-5 16th.
Mar 25 - 5:48 PM

1-seed Dustin Johnson knocked out 44-seed Zach Johnson 5-and-4 in Round of 16 play at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play and will do battle with 8-seed Alex Noren in the quarterfinals.

DJ was the Group 1 champ with a 3-0-0 record while ZJ was the Group 16 winner with a 2-1-0 mark and suffered his second setback of the week. Through four matches complete, the World No. 1 has yet to trail in the 60 holes he's had to play thus far. He'll be facing the Swede Noren in a battle of undefeated's. DJ took a 1 UP lead with a 14-footer for birdie-3 at the first, won the third on concession, and gave one back to Zach's first (of only two) two birdies on the day at the fourth. He extended to 4 UP by the break, winning holes 6, 8 and 9 (bookending that run with birdies), lost the 12th with par, but then brushed aside the elder Johnson with back-to-back birdies at 13 and 14, both from inside of 15 feet.
Mar 25 - 1:23 PM

Dustin Johnson continued his relentless march at the World Golf Championship-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin Country Club in Texas, topping Group 1 with a perfect 3-0-0 record after beating Ryder Cup colleague Jimmy Walker 5-and-3 and advancing to the Round of 16.

Johnson looked set to win this one in record time after powering into a 6-up lead through seven holes. That was a combination of his own excellence (an 11-foot eagle at 6 along with birdies at 1 and 7) and poor play from Walker (bogeys at 2, 4 and 5). Walker avoided further punishment by chipping in to halve No. 8 and repeated the trick for a winning eagle at 12 after he'd birdied 11. The rally cut Johnson's advantage to 4-up with six to play but the No. 1 seed wasn't going to tolerate any further erosion of his lead and halved 14 by draining a 23'3" par putt. That knocked any remaining hope out of Walker, who bogeyed 15 to confirm Johnson's dominant win. Today's victory followed a 3-and-2 success over Martin Kaymer and 5-and-3 win over Webb Simpson so DJ has yet to play the 17th or 18th holes this week. His last-16 opponent will be 44th seed Zach Johnson.
Mar 24 - 5:16 PM

No.1 seed Dustin Johnson had too much for Ryder Cup rival Martin Kaymer in round two of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play in Texas, sealing a 3-and-2 victory and a second straight win.

In windy conditions at Austin CC, DJ didn't need his best and won four holes with par. The first of those came at No. 1 and, after the next was halved in bogey, the American doubled his lead with an 8'4" birdie conversion at No.3. Johnson won 5 with a par and nailed a 20-foot par breaker at 7 to skip into a 4-up lead. Kaymer three times got himself back to 3-down with wins at 8, 12 and 15 but World No. 1 Johnson always kept him at arm's length and closed out victory at 16 with a fourth birdie of the round. The U.S. Open champ needs just to avoid defeat against Jimmy Walker in tomorrow's final group match to reach the Round of 16.
Mar 23 - 6:09 PM

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson breezed through Austin Country Club en route to his 5-and-3 victory over Webb Simpson in round one of the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play.

DJ set the tone early by splashing home birdie putts from 25'6" and 22'3" on the opening two holes. Johnson didn't settle for the early lead, as he circled birdies at 7 and 8 as well as the 12th, without dropping a single shot. The only way Simpson was remaining in the match was via birdies at the par-3 11th and par-4 13th. In the end, the World No. 1 played exactly how you'd expect him to. The big hitter lost in the Quarterfinals here last year, and he looks to be a tough out again this year. Up next for the big hitter is a Friday matchup against Martin Kaymer.
Mar 22 - 5:16 PM

Beginning the final round one shot back of 54-hole leader Justin Thomas and playing his first event as World No. 1, Dustin Johnson fashioned a 3-under-par 31-37=68 to win the inaugural World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship with a 72-hole total of 14-under 270, one better than Tommy Fleetwood and two clear of Ross Fisher and Jon Rahm.

The 32-year-old claims his 14th PGA TOUR title in 207 career events (seventh come from behind) and second this season in six starts (5-shot win in his last start at the Genesis Open, where he was the 54-hole leader). It's his fourth WGC title in 28 tries, joining the 2016 Bridgestone, 2015 Cadillac Championship -- the precursor of this event -- and the 2014 HSBC Champions. After opening in 70-66-66, the South Carolinian began in solo 2nd, and played out of the final threesome with Thomas, who shot 72, and 36-hole leader Rory McIlroy (71). He went out in 4-under, birdieing Nos. 2, 6, 8 (from 29'1") and 9, surging to a 4-shot lead. Johnson would relinquish the lead after back-to-back bogeys at 12 and 13, but played his final five holes blemish free, circling an up-and-down birdie-4 at 15. For the week, he carded one eagle and 22 birdies against eight bogeys and one double.
Mar 5 - 6:07 PM

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson tossed up a 5-under-par 31-35=66 in today's third round of the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship for a 54-hole tally of 11-under 202, up three places to solo 2nd, one back of leader Justin Thomas, who shot 66.

After opening with 70-66, the 32-year-old began in a three-way T7 on 6-under, three shy of 36-hole leader Rory McIlroy, who shot 70. Playing out of the third-to-last threesome, he opened with eagle-2 from 19'7" at the drivable par-4 first, and dropped in a 17-footer for birdie at the par-4 second. The South Carolinian added birdie-4 at six, but not before saving par from 35'3" at the par-3 third. He circled the par-3 13th (from 15 feet), and the par-5 15th (6'2"), and ended his scoring with 1-putt bogey-5 at 16 (from 13'10"), after his second got stuck up in a tree short of the green (penalty). Johnson missed four scoring chances from inside of nine feet but still gained 2.267 strokes with the flat stick. He's chasing his second win of the season in six starts (Genesis Open) and fourth WGC title in 28 tries.
Mar 4 - 6:32 PM

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson fashioned a 5-under-par 33-33=66 during round two of the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship to climb back into contention heading into the weekend on 6-under 134.

The story for DJ in round one was putting as he missed putt after putt inside 10 feet to lose 1.569 strokes versus the field. Today, he improved slightly (+0.162 SGP) but still missed a pair of putts from inside five feet. The real damage was done before reaching the putting surface as he gained 4.7 strokes tee-to-green. Johnson sits at T5 on the leaderboard at the moment but he has to feel good being just three strokes off the lead, considering the lack of putts that have fallen for Johnson thus far. As if he needs any more fuel to motivate him, Rory McIlroy has a chance to regain the No. 1 spot in the World Rankings with a win, so Johnson would love to put a cork in his efforts over the weekend.
Mar 3 - 6:59 PM

World No. 3 Dustin Johnson played 36 holes on Sunday at the Genesis Open, concluding with an even-par 33-38=71 and a 72-hole tally of 17-under 267, good for a 5-shot win over Thomas Pieters and Scott Brown. It's his 13th PGA TOUR title in 206 career starts and ascends to No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking for the first time.

Since the Ranking began (at the 1986 Masters), the 32-year-old becomes just the 20th player all-time to achieve the No. 1-ranking. In order to attain the top spot, he had to win and now-former No. 1 Jason Day had to finish worse than a three-way tie for third (he finished T64). With the victory, the South Carolinian joins Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer as players to have won at least once in their first 10 seasons on TOUR. After opening in 66-66-64, he amassed a 5-shot lead thru 54 holes and maintained the margin exchanging three birdies with three bogeys on seven (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation. This was Johnson's fifth start of the season and third top 10, arriving off a previous-best 3rd at last week's AT&T Pro-Am. It's his first win since the 2016 BMW Championship, also as the 54-hole leader, and sixth top 5 (fourth straight) at Riviera in 10 tries.
Feb 19 - 8:25 PM

Second-round leader and World No. 3 Dustin Johnson painted a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-32=64 in the two-day third round of the Genesis Open to post 17-under 196, good for a 5-shot lead over TOUR rookie Wesley Bryan, who shot 63.

After opening in twin 66s, the 32-year-old led by one over Pat Perez, who shot 74, and Cameron Tringale, who shot 71. He'll play the final round with both again however, as there is no re-pairing taking place in an effort to get done on Sunday. The South Carolinian, blemish-free over his last 41 holes, didn't get any of his third frame completed on Saturday (darkness), so he toured all 18 on Sunday morning. Johnson mustered six (of 14) fairways but pelted 15 greens in regulation, circling seven birdies, highlighted by a trip-birdie finish, with all seven dropping from inside of 13 feet. He was a 54-hole leader/co-leader twice last season, converting at the BWM Championship and finishing T6 at the TOUR Championship.
Feb 19 - 3:12 PM

World No. 3 Dustin Johnson hung up a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-33=66 in the two-day second round of the Genesis Open to reach the midpoint on 10-under 132, tying the low round of the day thus far with Kyle Stanley and Pat Perez, and assuming the 36-hole clubhouse lead by one over Perez. UPDATE: With play completed, Johnson leads by one over Perez and Cameron Tringale, who shot 64.

After kicking off with 66, the 32-year-old took all of Friday off along with 58 others. He returned on Saturday morning to hit eight (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, recording 2.850 SG: Tee-to-Green and 2.766 SG: Putting. The South Carolina native circled birdies at Nos. 1, and 4, the latter from 38'4", followed by 10 straight pars before canning a 35-footer for birdie-3 at 15. He ended his scoring with a tap-in 4 at 17 and a walk-off 3 at 18 from 20'3". This is his first lead this season after any round in his fifth start. Last season, Johnson led/co-led four times after 36 holes. He won two of those (U.S. Open, BMW Championship); and finished T6 (TOUR Championship) and runner-up at the RBC Canadian Open in the other two.
Feb 18 - 5:46 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 3 Dustin Johnson styled a 5-under-par 34-32=66 in the first round of the Genesis Open, currently in 2nd place and the early clubhouse leader. UPDATE: R1 play is suspended (darkness) but Johnson is still T2, two shy of Sam Saunders, who shot bogey-free 64

The 32-year-old is looking up on the board at Sam Saunders, the leader on the course thru 15 holes (-6). This is his 10th appearance and is 7-for-9 with six top 10s, five of those top 5s, highlighted by runner-up finishes in 2014 and 2015 (playoff). The reigning PGA TOUR Player of the Year checks in with two top 10s on the season in four starts, including solo 3rd last week at Pebble Beach. Today, he was bogey-free 6-under thru 12 holes, circling birdies on Nos. 11, 14, 17, 18, 2 and 3, before concluding his scoring with bogey-4 at 4. Johnson recorded 1.538 putts per GIR (on 13 greens) and had 26 putts total, the most memorable coming back-to-back at holes 2 and 3, dropping from between 24 and 31 feet.
