World No. 1 and FedExCup leader Dustin Johnson bobbed and weaved to a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to finish up on 6-under 274, up six places to T13 with play still in progress.
There was no Sunday charge for the pre-tourney 4/1 fave but he did enough to carve out an eighth top-25 finish of the season in 10 starts. It's also a seventh consecutive top 25 at the Nelson. After kicking off in 67-67, the 32-year-old was T3 at halftime, but faded over the weekend with 71 and a five-birdie four-bogey 69. For the week, he totaled 18 birdies versus 12 bogeys and is currently 2nd in SG: Off-the-Tee (6.565) but 54th in SG: Approach-the-Green (-0.325) and 46th in SG: Around-the-Green. May 21 - 5:17 PM

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson grinded out a 3-under-par 33-34=67 during the second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson, reaching 6-under 134 at the midpoint to share the early clubhouse lead with Byeong Hun An. UPDATE He would later be passed by Jason Kokrak who torched the course to reach 12-under 128.

DJ played his first 17 holes blemish-free today, but it wasn't as easy as the scorecard made it look. He gave himself just six birdie looks from inside 20 feet today, and stuck seven of his approaches outside of 40 feet. In round one, DJ leaned heavily on the flat stick, but he converted just one putt from outside six feet today and also missed a pair of putts from inside seven feet. Despite not having his best stuff today, Johnson swallowed just one bogey and is now in prime position to make a weekend run at this event where he already boasts five top-12 finishes on his resume.

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson kicked off his week at the AT&T Byron Nelson with a 3-under-par 34-33=67, just three strokes off the pacesetters who benefited from favorable AM conditions.

DJ split seven fairways and found just 11 greens in regulation. This was largely due to the conditions the afternoon wave faced, with gusty conditions making it really tough to score. Johnson handled it nicely, leaning on his short game today. In particular, he splashed home four putts from outside eight feet, including a pair of closing par-savers from 8'6" and 13'3" at the 17th and 18th. The big hitter walked off the course gaining 3.176 strokes putting today. If conditions are similar tomorrow, Johnson should be able to take advantage of his morning tee time.

World No. 1 and FedExCup leader Dustin Johnson fired a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the final round of THE PLAYERS to wrap up on 2-under 286, up 27 places on the live leaderboard to T17 and good for the low round in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Johnson finished T12, eight back of champion Si Woo Kim, and his 68 was tied for the low round with Brendan Steele.

This was the 32-year-old's ninth appearance in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, and first top 25. His previous best came last year, opening in 70-70-77 and closing in 68 as well, climbing 27 spots on the final day for T28. This week, the Jupiter, Florida, resident arrived off five straight top-3 finishes (T2, 1st, 1st, 1st, 3rd), so despite the spotty record at TPC Sawgrass, slotted in as the pre-tourney fave outright (7/1). He was never a factor however, carding progressively worse rounds of 71-73-74 before saving some face in the finale. Johnson eagled the par-5 second from 49'11", circled 4s on the other three par 5s, adding a nine-incher for birdie-3 at the drivable par-4 12th (laid up). He squared bogey-5s at 4 (3-putt from 60'8") and 7, ending the week with two eagles and 11 birdies against 11 bogeys and one double.

Playing out of the ninth-to-last twosome, FedExCup leader and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson fashioned a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship to throw 9-under 279 on the board, up 13 spots to T1, tying the low round of the day and good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Johnson finished in a two-way T2, one back of champion Brian Harman, who birdied his final two holes for 68.

This was the 32-year-old's fourth WFC, first since a missed cut in 2011, and his second cash (T29/2010). He arrived off three consecutive wins, most recently at the WGC-Match Play, which chased trophies at the WGC-Mexico and the Genesis. After opening in 70-75, the Coastal Carolina product was one of 24 to make the cut on the number (T56), playing the weekend in matching 67s. He began R4 on 4-under (T14), four shy of 54-hole leader Patrick Reed, and squared a lone bogey-5 at eight, offset by six birdies at Nos. 2 (from 18'1"), 4, 6, 12, 13 and 18, walking off with an up-and-down 4 from 14'8". Seven of DJ's 15 TOUR titles have been in come-from-behind fashion, but settles for his ninth runner-up in 209 career TOUR starts, first since T2 at the 2016 RBC Canadian Open.
May 7 - 4:53 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 1 and FedExCup leader Dustin Johnson enjoyed a bogey-free 5-under-par 32-35=67 on Moving Day at the Wells Fargo Championship to post 4-under 212, up 42 places to T14, four shy of 54-hole leader Patrick Reed.

Seven of Johnson's 15 TOUR titles have been in come-from-behind fashion, most recently at the 2017 WGC-Mexico where he came from one back with 3-under 68 to win by one. The largest margin he's overcome in the final round was five at the 2015 WGC-Cadillac (Doral), winning by one after a 3-under 69. Today's 67 matched the low round of the day with Reed (and Seung-Yul Noh), was just the third bogey-free round of the week, and the only one in R3. Johnson was one of 24 players to make the cut on the number, beginning the day T56. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 5.000 strokes tee-to-green. The reigning TOUR Player of the Year's five birdies came at 10 (from 22'2"), 2, 4, 7 and 9, walking off with a 9-footer for birdie-3.
May 6 - 8:04 PM

Returning from a back injury that knocked him out of the 81st Masters, Dustin Johnson twirled a 2-under-par 37-33=70 in round one of the Wells Fargo Championship.

The World No. 1 kicked off his day on the back nine and looked smooth right out of the gates. He found himself in a share of the lead after birdies at Nos. 12, 15, and 16. From there, the putter went flat, but there is plenty of positives to takeaway from this round. DJ landed 16 greens in regulation and gave himself 11 birdie looks from inside 20 feet. If his flat stick can warm up, then he should continue to rise up the leaderboard as the week progresses.
May 4 - 1:00 PM

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson has withdrawn from this week's Masters Tournament, citing a back injury that took place on Wednesday afternoon when falling down some stairs at his rental home in Augusta, Georgia.

Johnson showed up at Augusta National Golf Club about an hour before his tee time today and gave it a go on the driving range. His backswings looked fine but his follow-throughs appeared muted as he was trying to make swings without aggravating his back. He eventually decided his back wasn't up for the task this week. DJ was arriving with stellar form, winning in each of his last starts starts. In the short term, this is very disappointing, but it's likely the best decision for his long-term output.
Apr 6 - 2:10 PM

Dustin Johnson suffered a back injury while falling down a staircase Wednesday afternoon, remaining hopeful but not definite to tee it up this week at the 81st Masters Tournament.

DJ's manager, David Winkle, issued a statement on the World No. 1's status, "At roughly 3:00 pm today, Dustin took a serious fall on a staircase in his Augusta rental home. He landed very hard on his lower back and is now resting." He would close by saying, "with the hope of being able to play tomorrow." At this time we should treat Johnson as probable to compete this week, but gamers should be well aware of the risk that is now attached with a Johnson investment this week.

FedExCup leader and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson embarks on his eighth Masters Tournament, first as the pre-tourney odds-fave outright (6/1), and has a 2:03PM (EDT) tee time in Round 1 with 2-time champ Bubba Watson and reigning PGA champ Jimmy Walker.

The reigning PGA TOUR Player of the Year has won his last three events (spread over seven weeks), including WGC titles in back-to-back starts. He was the bookmaker's fave in one of those wins, the WGC-Mexico, where he won in his first-ever start as the world's top-ranked player. The South Carolina native is 6-for-7 at Augusta National with a 72.08 stroke average, surrounding a missed cut in 2014 with three top 25s, two of those top 10s (T4/2016; T6/2015). Overall, this is his 32nd major appearance with 13 prior top-10 finishes, six in his last eight, highlighted by his win at the 2016 U.S. Open at Oakmont CC (PA). The 32-year-old leads the TOUR in driving distance, SG: Tee-to-Green and greens in regulation, and checks in off four straight top 3s dating back to solo 3rd at Pebble Beach.

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.

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.
Mar 26 - 2:04 PM

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.
