Overnight leader Dustin Johnson couldn't sink anything all day and settled for a 3-over-par 37-38=75 for his third round of The 144th Open Championship.
In his post-round interview on ESPN, Johnson blamed his putter for failing to score. It makes sense given he converted only one birdie and squared four bogeys, including on the last three holes (after the birdie at the par-4 15th). However, DJ found only 12 greens in regulation, so he limited his chances as compared to the rest of the field. So, at 7-under 209, he's sudden five shots in arrears of the threesome atop the leaderboard entering the final round. Johnson is T18 on the leaderboard. When asked how low he'd need to go on ESPN, without hesitation he stated that he's going to have to attack St. Andrews and shoot at least 8-under (64) to have a chance at his first victory in a major.

First-round leader Dustin Johnson backed up his opening 65 at The 144th Open Championship with a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the second round to post 10-under 134 at the midpoint, good for sole possession of the 36-hole lead.

DJ may think back about today and recollect on the value of his patience. After only 32 minutes of golf to start the day at 7:00 a.m. local time, wind suspended action until 6:00 p.m. Johnson was one of 39 golfers who returned to St. Andrews to complete the second round. He knocked it around well enough to hang near the lead, and then walked off with a pedestrian birdie-3 at the last to bump Danny Willett from the Englishman's temporary perch atop the leaderboard. Overall, Johnson hit 14 greens in the second round and offset two bogeys with five birdies. The third round will begin on Sunday, while the final round will be contested on Monday.

Dustin Johnson took down St. Andrews for a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-34=65 in today's opening round of The Open Championship, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Back in action since a three-putt par left him within one shot of a playoff at the U.S. Open, DJ took his aggression out on the home of golf today. He hit 16 greens in regulation and converted an eagle (at the par-5 fifth hole) and five birdies. This equals his lowest aggregate in 23 rounds at the season's third major (second round, Hoylake, 2014). It's also the same score he registered in the lid-lifter at Chambers Bay where he failed to break par the rest of the way. Scoring was for the taking today at St. Andrews, so it remains to be seen if the weather will continue to benefit the 31-year-old. He was already a favorite upon arrival.

Dustin Johnson hops across the pond in preparation of this week's Open Championship.

DJ is making his first start since the infamous three-putt to miss out on a playoff at Chambers Bay. Luckily he gets two more chances this year at a major played on links-style courses. Looking at his Open Championship history, it's easy to see his love for this style. In six starts, he's grabbed four top 15s, including a runner-up in 2011. Johnson should be consider one of, if not thee favorite this week at St. Andrews.

Overnight co-leader Dustin Johnson settled for an even-par 33-37=70 in the final round of the 115th U.S. Open to conclude at 4-under 276, joint runner-up with Louis Oosthuizen and one shot back of the winner Jordan Spieth.

Johnson circled his first birdie at No. 4 and missed a fairway at the par-4 sixth. Significant in that he had hit 18 consecutive fairways up to that point. The missed fairway did not prove costly as he delicately rolled in a 25-footer for par. He circled his second birdie at the par-5 eighth to turn in 2-under and 6-under overall. Things began to unravel, however, when he missed consecutive six-foot par putts on Nos. 10 and 11. After failing to take advantage of the drivable, par-4 12th, DJ squared yet another bogey at 13, three-putting from 38 feet. Johnson totaled 33 putts on the day, and his putting let him down again at 16, missing birdie from nine feet. He responded with a six-foot par breaker on 17, setting the stage for the par-5 last. Needing birdie to tie, he struck two blows to within 12'4" for eagle and promptly three-putted for par. The consolation is that this matches his career-best in a major (2011 Open Championship).

Dustin Johnson submitted an even-par 33-37=70 after today's third round of the 115th U.S. Open and his 4-under 206 is good for a four-way tie at the top with Jason Day, Branden Grace and Jordan Spieth.

Johnson began day three in a two-way tie for third at 4-under, one off the pace of the 36-hole leaders. On his round he landed a perfect 14 (of 14) fairways, that, coupled with his average driving distance of 318.0 yards, should have proved a lethal combination. The rest of the 30-year-old's game wasn't quite up to snuff however, landing 12 greens in regulation and penciling 32 putts. In total, DJ circled five birdies, but coughed up three bogeys and a double bogey-6 at the par-4 13th that featured a three-putt from 41 feet. Several scoring chances went by the wayside, including yet another three-putt, this one for par at 16 after driving the green. He did muster some highlights, but they were early, most notably a chip-in birdie at the sixth preceded by a 15-footer for a convention circle at the fifth. Johnson joins Day in the final pairing on championship Sunday.

Overnight co-leader Dustin Johnson answered his opening 65 at the U.S. Open with a 1-over-par 35-36=71 in today's second round.

At 4-under 136, he's just one shot off Jordan Spieth's 36-hole clubhouse lead. DJ buried four birdies, including a 33-foot bender at the par-4 11th hole. His first birdie came courtesy of a tap-in after a sublime wedge approach from 124 yards at the par-4 fourth. Alas, he'd also incur five bogeys, three of which on his last five holes to forfeit the lead. But he's where he needs to be to make a serious run at his first title in a major. This is his eighth appearance in a U.S. Open and 25th start in any major.

Dustin Johnson submitted a 5-under-par 33-32=65 for his opening round of the 115th U.S. Open, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

DJ was one hole from going bogey-free, but a poor up-and-down attempt at the par-3 ninth led to bogey. He opened on 10 and circled six birdies, all on par 4s. Overall, he hit 14 greens in regulation and took 28 putts. While gamers had a right to be frustrated with his withdrawal after only nine holes at TPC Southwind last week, he's made amends with a wonderful lid-lifter at Chambers Bay.

Dustin Johnson withdrew from the FedEx St. Jude Classic after nine holes in his opening round, citing an illness.

DJ opened bogey-bogey-bogey, and then rattled off six pars before calling it quits. It's his eighth mid-tournament WD in 171 PGA TOUR starts. He was a huge favorite in all formats, so this is a blow. Look for him to return at Chambers Bay for next week's U.S. Open.
Jun 11 - 11:07 AM

Dustin Johnson tamed Muirfield Village GC to the tune of a 7-under-par 29-36=65 in today's third round of the Memorial.

Johnson survived the cut on the number at 1-under and was a hefty 11 shots off the 36-hole lead. As such, he had an early tee time on Saturday of 8:37 a.m. ET, five-plus hours before the leaders were scheduled off. The 30-year-old had the course record of 61 in his sights after a first-nine 29 that included seven 3's on the card, highlighted by an eagle-3 hole-out from 67 yards on the par-5 sixth. Johnson squared double bogey on the 10th (his third double of the week), rebounding with his second eagle-3 of the day, hitting his approach from 192 yards to 24 inches on the 11th. He would play his last seven holes in even par. DJ's 8-under 208 aggregate has him up 52 spots on the live leaderboard.

Dustin Johnson settled for an even-par 36-33=69 in today's final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship with his 11-under 266 aggregate good for a two-way tie for eighth place.

Johnson began the day in prime position, a five-way tie for second, and playing with overnight leader Steven Bowditch, who he trailed by two. He looked destined to add his 10th career PGA TOUR title (and second of the season) after holing-out chip-in birdies on two of his first three holes to tie Bowditch for the lead at 13-under. Johnson was living on the edge however, missing his first four greens in regulation. It caught up to him in a huge way on the par-4 eighth. He put his first tee shot out of bounds right, then hooked his second in trouble left, just as television coverage was ceasing for 30 minutes. TV or not, it resulted in a quadruple bogey-8, squashing his chances for a win at the TPC Four Seasons. To the 30-year-old's credit, he did play his last 12 in 2-under and added his seventh top 10 on the season in just 12 starts.

Dustin Johnson smoothed a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-31=62 in the third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship to post 11-under 197, assuming the early clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Johnson is in a five-way tie for second, two shots back of the leader Steven Bowditch.

Johnson began his third round at 4-under (T26) and five shots back of the 36-hole leaders. At No. 10 in the Official World Golf Ranking, DJ is the second-highest ranked player in the field after No. 2 Jordan Spieth (and after No. 8 Jason Day withdrew). Johnson is not disappointing, circling birdies at Nos. 2, 3, 5 and 6 on his outward half and on 11, 16 and 18 on his way to the house. In perhaps the most important moment of his round, he brushed in a lengthy par putt on the par-3 17th to keep his forward momentum intact. The 30-year-old is looking for his second win in 2015 after taking the title at the WGC-Cadillac Championship in March.
May 30 - 7:21 PM

Dustin Johnson coasted to a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in today's opening round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

Perfect in five trips with three top 10s, DJ is an automatic investment at TPC Four Seasons. He illustrated why again today, going 4-for-14 with four birdies, including a 16-footer at the par-4 10th to begin the round. He also went 4-for-4 in scrambling but squared a bogey at the par-3 17th where he three-jacked from 49'6". He's five strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Dustin Johnson readies for soggy conditions at this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

The weather in Irving, Texas, has been less than ideal to put it lightly. The 7,166 yard track will be playing much longer this week, and that should play right into the hands of bombers like DJ. He settled for a T63 in his 2008 Byron Nelson debut, but has secured top 20s in all four trips since. Johnson should be considered an elite option in all formats this week.

Dustin Johnson registered a 2-and-1 victory over Victor Dubuisson in today's third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

It never has to be this interesting, but you never know with DJ. He was in control early, reaching 3-up by the seventh hole. Sitting 2-up through 10, he proceeded to string together three bogeys to give the Frenchman a 1-up lead after 13. Naturally, DJ rallied for three consecutive birdies to regain the 2-up advantage through 16. Throughout this activity, Dubuisson parred every hole on the back nine of TPC Harding Park, including at the par-3 17th where the match ended. The American raised his record to 2-1, so he needs Matt Jones (1-1) to defeat Charl Schwartzel (2-0) and force a three-way playoff. Dubuisson, who was last year's runner-up, settles for an 0-3 slate.
