Dustin Johnson erased a four-shot deficit and endured a pending rules controversy to fire a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in today's final round of the 116th U.S. Open to post 4-under 276, good for a three-shot win over Jim Furyk, Scott Piercy, and 54-hole leader Shane Lowry.
The 31-year-old, three days shy of his birthday (June 22nd), is finally a major champion in his 29th major appearance. He won in his ninth U.S. Open attempt, having previously posted three top-10 finishes, including T2 last year. The South Carolinian began the finale in a two-way T2 on 3-under, four adrift of Lowry. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he landed eight (of 14) fairways, pelted 14 GIR, and totaled 30 putts. After the round, DJ was assessed a one-stroke penalty for having been deemed to have caused the ball to move on the fifth green. He was notified of the possible infraction on the 12th tee by the USGA. Johnson brushed that aside to claim his 10th PGA TOUR win in his 193rd career start and extends his TOUR-leading streak to nine consecutive seasons with at least one victory. Jun 19 - 8:24 PM

Overnight leader Dustin Johnson backed up with a 1-over-par 36-35=71 in the two-day third round of the U.S. Open for a 54-hole total of 3-under 207, down two places into a two-way T2, four back of leader Shane Lowry.

The 31-year-old, three days shy of his birthday (June 22nd), began the third round with a one-shot lead over playing competitor Andrew Landry, and was two clear of Lowry, who shot 65. He was 2-over on his lap thru 13 holes, overshadowing birdies on Nos. 1 and 4 with bogeys at 6 and 10 and double bogey-6 at the third, when play was suspended on Saturday. Johnson returned on Sunday to play his final five holes in 1-under, adding a 29-foot birdie at the par-4 15th. In total, he landed eight (of 14) fairways, mustered 10 GIR, and used the flat stick 28 times. DJ is in the penultimate twosome with Lee Westwood for the finale, scheduled out at 3:20 p.m. ET.

Dustin Johnson continued his strong tee-to-green play with a 1-under-par 35-34=69 during round two of the U.S. Open, staking his claim of the clubhouse lead entering the weekend at 4-under 136.

The Thursday morning a.m. wave of golfers has yet to start their second rounds, but Johnson sits atop the leaderboard at the moment. Through 36 holes, he's split 19 (of 28) fairways and pelted 30 greens in regulation. That 83 percent clip is light-years ahead of the field average (56.87%). The story of his round, and day, was the lack of putts made. That is partially due to the size of these greens at Oakmont Country Club. They are large, and Johnson has been hitting them as a high clip, but not giving himself many birdie looks from inside 10 feet. Regardless of his lack of holed putts, Johnson will sleep on the clubhouse lead entering the weekend as he searches for his first victory at a major championship.

Dustin Johnson bombarded Oakmont Country Club with a bogey-free, 3-under-par 34-33=67 during round one of the 116th U.S. Open Championship, currently one shot off the leader Andrew Landry.

DJ put on a ball-striking clinic today, primarily off the tee. He striped nine (of 14) fairways with those other five being near-misses in the first cut that left him good lies to still attack the green. That is exactly what he did all day, pelting 16 greens in regulation to give him ample opportunity to score. This was about as stress-free as a round can get around Oakmont Country Club. Johnson has finished top 15 in six of his last seven major championship starts. If his driver remains as steady as it was today, he should easily grab another by week's end.

Past champ Dustin Johnson fired a 7-under-par 34-29=63 in the weather-delayed final round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to post the low round of the week and the 72-hole clubhouse lead on 9-under 271, up 16 places on the live leaderboard to T2. UPDATE: With play completed, Johnson finished in solo fifth, four back of champion Daniel Berger.

A 3 hour and 3 minute weather delay didn't halt the 31-year-old's march up the leaderboard. He began the finale on 2-under (T18) after opening his fifth appearance in 66-69-73, eight adrift of 54-hole leader Daniel Berger. Johnson, who won his sixth of nine TOUR titles on debut here in 2012, was 3-under thru 12 holes when the horn sounded, erasing a lone bogey-6 at the third with birdies on Nos. 7, 9, 10 and 12. When play resumed, he added a birdie-3 at 15, chipped-in for eagle-3 at 16 from 16'9" away, and capped with a chip-in birdie at the par-4 18th, 21'11" from the target.
Jun 12 - 6:44 PM

Dustin Johnson spent three strokes over his final two holes but still escaped round two of the FedEx St. Jude Classic with a 1-under-par 31-38=69, finding himself T2 on the leaderboard at 5-under 135.

DJ swallowed a bogey early at No. 2 but rebounded in a big way. On the next hole, the par-5 third, he landed his 197-yard approach shot to 17'8" and trickled it in for eagle. He rode that wave into the par-3 fourth hole, sticking his 173-yard tee shot to 14 inches for a stress-free birdie. From there, DJ traded three birdies with two bogeys to reach the 18th tee box at 7-under on the week. Next, he striped a tee shot 311 yards perfectly in the fairway but a loose approach shot left him on the bank next to the green (lucky not to dive off into the water). His chip shot ran past the hole and left him a 10'11" par-saving attempt, but he ran it past and resulted in a closing three-putt double bogey. It's not an ideal way to close out the second round, but he still enters the third round in a share of second place, just four strokes off the leader Daniel Berger.
Jun 10 - 6:43 PM

Dustin Johnson kept his scorecard colorful on his way to a 4-under-par 33-33=66 to kick off his week at the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

DJ was marvelous off the tee and also on the greens, but struggled in between from time to time, today. He blasted it off the today while missing just two fairways along the way, but landed just 11 greens in regulation. Starting on the back nine, Johnson scared gamers early with a bogey at the par-4 and found water on the par-3 15th en route to a double. Flashbacks of last year's early WD were surely running through the minds of many. Instead, he landed his approach shot on the par-5 16th to 9'11" where he splashed home an eagle. He followed it up with four straight birdies to erase all concerns of a slow start. DJ would find water again on the par-5 third, leading to another dropped shot. Johnson is in fantastic condition considering the pair of water balls during today's navigation of TPC Southwind.
Jun 9 - 1:32 PM

Dustin Johnson exited the 2015 FedEx St. Jude Classic early but returns this week for another crack at TPC Southwind.

DJ opened his tournament on a three-hole bogey train before settling down for six straight pars. From there, he called it quits at the turn, citing an illness. Despite the WD last year, Johnson arrives as the odds-on favorite this week, and rightfully so. The bomber won his in 2012 St. Jude Classic debut, and enters the week with seven top 10s in 12 starts this season. Gamers should take note of last year's WD in terms of risk factor, but an illness is unlikely to straight two years in a row, making him a top-tier play in all formats.

Dustin Johnson patched together a 1-under-par 33-38=71 in the final round of the Memorial to post 14-under 274, one shy of a two-man playoff involving Jon Curran and 54-hole co-leader William McGirt.

This was the 31-year-old's ninth appearance with a previous best of solo fourth in 2011. He was the 18-hole leader after 64 and followed with rounds of 71-68 to begin the finale on 13-under, one back of a trio of 54-hole leaders. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, Johnson landed 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.824 SG: Tee-to-green. At the turn, he co-led on 16-under, going out in blemish-free 3-under, but squared bogeys on 10, 12 and 13 to drop back to T5 when play was suspended for bad weather. When play resumed, DJ exchanged birdie at 15 with bogey at 16 before a closing birdie from 5'1". After his stellar R1, he posted three straight negatives in SG: Putting, including -0.557 in R4. It's his second solo third of the season in 12 events (Houston Open).
Jun 5 - 5:43 PM

With inclement weather in the forecast for Sunday afternoon, the final round of the Memorial Tournament will utilize a two-tee start from 8:30 - 10:30 a.m. ET with the leaders commencing off No. 1 tee at 10:30 a.m. Sunday.

Inclement weather stranded eight (of 75) during the third round on Saturday for 2 hours and 28 minutes. First-round leader Dustin Johnson was in the fairway on the par-4 18th playing his final hole when the horn sounded. He returned at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday and drilled his 147-yard approach shot to 25 inches for a kick-in birdie-3. It was the sixth birdie of the round for the 31-year-old against bogeys at holes 2 and 17 and wrapped a 4-under-par 35-33=68. He's at 13-under 203 thru 54 holes, currently T5 on the leaderboard, one back of clubhouse leader William McGirt.
Jun 4 - 7:42 PM

Overnight leader Dustin Johnson stumbled his way to a 1-under-par 37-34=71 during the second round of the Memorial, dropping to T5 on the leaderboard at 9-under 135.

DJ split 10 (of 14) fairways but found just 12 greens in regulation. This loose approach play did not put him in premium position to score. His flat stick did him no favors, either, holing just three putts from outside five feet on the day. He walked off the course losing 1.883 strokes with the putter. The big blemish came at the par-4 sixth hole where it took him four shots to reach the green before two-putting from 7'1" for double bogey. Despite this stumble, Johnson will enter the weekend just three strokes off the co-leaders Brendan Steele and Matt Kuchar.
Jun 3 - 6:39 PM

Dustin Johnson dropped the birdie hammer en route to an 8-under-par 31-33=64, staking claim of the early lead at this week's Memorial.

DJ was firing on all cylinders from the get-go this morning, opening his round with a three-hole birdie train, all three putts coming from the 10-to-12 foot range. He would add three more circles before the turn, all from inside six feet. Johnson saved par from 9'1" at the par-4 10th to keep the momentum rolling. The second birdie train of the round started at the par-3 12th and lasted four holes this time. The most notable birdie of the bunch was a 32'4" bomb at the par-4 13th. DJ gained 3.199 strokes approaching-the-green and 3.186 strokes putting, so this was a very balanced effort from the bomber. Playing his 31st competitive round at Muirfield Village Golf Club, this goes in the books as his new lowest lap at the Memorial (previously 65 on two occasions).
Jun 2 - 1:41 PM

Dustin Johnson pieced together a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in today's second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to reach the halfway point on 8-under 132, down two on the live leaderboard to T6.

The 31-year-old digressed across the board from his opening 64 finding eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation in R2. Most notably, he dropped to 1.923 putts per GIR (from 1.533/R1) and at last check, -1.535 in SGP, down from -0.094/R1. To be fair, Johnson didn't give himself many good looks on Friday, with just three scoring chances from inside of 15 feet. The South Carolinian circled the par-4 10th (his 1st hole) from 15 inches, the 17th from 42 inches, and two-putted both par 5s for birdie-4s. He squared the 12th (3-putt from 49'8") and the 14th after putting his tee ball in the water.
May 20 - 1:33 PM

Dustin Johnson cruised to a 6-under-par 32-32=64 during the opening round of the AT&T Byron Nelson, swallowing just one bogey along the way.

DJ put on a ball-striking clinic today, striping 10 (of 14) fairways and landing 15 greens. He walked off the course gaining 5.342 strokes tee-to-green but found himself right around field average in the putting department. The highlight of the round happened on the front nine as he holed out from 101 yards for eagle on the par-4 fourth. He displayed his craftsmanship from the similar distance on the par-4 18th, wedging his 112-yard approach to just 4'1", rolling it in for a walk-off birdie. Johnson arrived with four top 10s in his last four trips to TPC Four Seasons, so gamers should not be surprised to see him lurking near the top of the leaderboard.
May 19 - 9:08 PM

Dustin Johnson drags a poor track record at TPC Sawgrass into his eighth appearance at THE PLAYERs.

DJ has 60 top 10s in 188 career starts (32 percent) and 88 top 25s (47 percent), but none of them have come at TPC Sawgrass. In fact, his best finish at the Stadium Course is a T34 back in 2010. In 22 rounds he posted just one round in the 60s. Johnson has the tools to contend on any course, but he won't find himself in contention this week unless he changes his strategy, because the bomb-and-gouge technique has not been working here at TPC Sawgrass.
