Beginning off No. 10 tee, defending champ and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson fired a bogey-free 7-under-par 29-35=64 on Moving Day at the Genesis Open, vaulting 46 places on the live leaderboard to T7 on 6-under 207, and good for the low round of the week thus far. UPDATE: With play completed, Johnson is T8, four in arrears of 54-hole leader Bubba Watson.
This was the 33-year-old's 39th career lap at Riviera CC and ties a personal best. He shot 64 two times previous, including a R3 64 last year after being the 36-hole leader by one. That 64 built him a 5-shot lead at the three-quarter pole, eventually cruising to a 5-shot victory with a closing 71. After opening with 74 and 69, the Coastal Carolina product began T53 on 1-over, one inside the cut line and four short of the overnight top 10. He landed eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.765 strokes off-the-tee and 5.372 tee-to-green. The 17-time TOUR winner went out in 1-under, circling birdie-4 at 11, and then caught fire, ticking four more birdies at 3, 4 (hole-out from 32'1"), 6 and 7, and adding eagle-3 at 1 from 11'7" (fringe). He posted 1.538 putts per GIR and 1.075 SG: Putting with 24 total putts. Feb 17 - 5:28 PM

Dustin Johnson hoisted the hardware at last year's Genesis Open and he makes a return visit this week for another crack at Riviera Country Club.

DJ opened his week with a 5-under 66 last year to sit in a share of second place. He repeated that round on Friday to steal sole possession of the lead and never looked back. Eventually, he lapped the field by five strokes, kicking off a run of three straight victories before his stair debacle at the Masters. Johnson's victory was no shock since he entered with five top 5s already on his Riviera CC resume. In addition to strong course history, Johnson is currently toting great form as he's finished first or second in all three of his early-season starts. The World No. 1 has led or co-led after six of his 12 rounds this season. Fantasy gamers should feel confident investing as a top-tier option in all formats.

Second- and third-round co-leader and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson labored to an even-par 36-36=72 in the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, dipping one spot into a four-way T2 on 14-under 273, three short of champion and playing competitor Ted Potter, Jr., who shot 69. UPDATE: Johnson missed three putts from inside of nine feet on the back nine on Sunday.

The 33-year-old was chasing his 18th TOUR title in 224 career events, second this season in three starts and second straight, but settles for an 11th career runner-up finish and second this season (T2, WGC-HSBC). He drops to 7-for-14 when leading/co-leading thru 36 holes and 8-for-15 as 54-hole leader/co-leader, 1-for-3 this season and 1-for-5 when co-leading entering R4. The two-time past champ improves to 10-for-11 at the AT&T with eight top 25s and eight top 10s, seven of those top 5s and two runners-up (T2/2014). After opening with 67-64, he played Pebble Beach GL in 70-72. The South Carolinian hit 11 (of 14) fairways and mustered nine greens in regulation, gaining 1.600 strokes off-the-tee but losing 2.187 on approach. He cancelled four birdies with four squares and posted 1.778 putts per GIR and -0.830 SG: Putting with 27 total putts.
Feb 11 - 7:03 PM

Playing Pebble Beach Golf Links, overnight co-leader and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson carved out a 2-under-par 32-38=70 in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to tie Ted Potter, Jr.'s 54-hole lead on 14-under 201.

The two-time past AT&T champ went out in 4-under but stumbled home with 2-over in freshening winds. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 0.804 strokes off-the-tee and 1.712 approaching-the-green, but losing -0.927 around-the-green. The 33-year-old squared four bogeys at holes 3 (3-putt from 50'10"), 10, 12 and 17, cancelled by four circles at 4, 6, 7 and 18, two from between 10 and 28 feet, adding eagle-3 at 2 (5'8"). He posted 1.727 putts per GIR and 0.719 SG: Putting with 29 total putts. This is Johnson's 15th 54-hole lead/co-lead in 224 career events, converting eight into wins, most recently in his last PGA TOUR start five weeks ago at the Sentry TOC for this 17th TOUR title.
Feb 10 - 8:04 PM

Dustin Johnson bombarded the Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula Country Club with a 7-under-par 31-33=64 during round two of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, climbing into a share of the lead alongside Beau Hossler, entering the weekend on 12-under 131.

World No. 1 is a two-time champ at this event but in recent years he's lost strokes to the field in his rounds at MPCC. That certainly wasn't the case today as he finished 5.77 strokes clear of the R2 field average at MPCC. In his post-round interview, he claimed to get away with a couple bad tee shots but his iron and wedge game certainly came to the rescue. Johnson racked up eight birdies to offset a lone bogey today. He's now been inside the top 10 after 19 of his 40 rounds played at the AT&T Pro-Am. This will be DJ's 14th career 36-hole lead/co-lead on the PGA TOUR and he's gone on to win seven of those previous 13 times. That includes the 2010 edition of this event where he led or co-led wire-to-wire. Today's 64 is the low round of the week and it matches the low round of the week, in relation to par.
Feb 9 - 7:08 PM

Dustin Johnson kept it tidy in round one of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, cruising to a 5-under-par 33-34=67 while taking on Spyglass Hill.

The two-time tournament winner had a ho-hum day around the tough, Spyglass Hill layout. He split eight (of 14) fairways and landed 13 greens in regulation. His putter was steady on the tough poa annua greens, needing just 26 putts to make his way around. With Spyglass Hill now out of the way, he will turn his attention toward Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course for round two. Playing his 39th round at this event, he has now been inside the top 10 after 18 of those rounds. Gamers should look for a really low round on Friday before a tough battle with Pebble Beach Golf Links on Saturday and Sunday.
Feb 8 - 8:03 PM

Two-time past champion and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson, a pre-tourney 11/2 fave outright, does battle in his 11th consecutive AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and is paired the first three rounds with defending champion and AT&T athlete Jordan Spieth.

This is the fourth straight year that Johnson and Spieth have kicked off together and begin on Spyglass Hill GC at 8:22am PST. He finished 3rd to Spieth last year and the duo were together for all four rounds in 2016 on this same course rotation, with Spieth finishing T21 and Johnson T41. Overall, the 33-year-old is 9-for-10 at the AT&T with seven top 25s and seven top 10s, six for top 5s, and ranks 2nd in career earnings. He won in 2009 (reduced to 54 holes) and successfully defended in 2010. Infamously, Johnson was the 54-hole leader by three at the 2010 U.S. Open (Pebble Beach) and closed in 10-over 82 for T8. This is his third start of the season, chasing a disappointing T2 at the WGC-HSBC, where he was the 54-hole leader by six, with his 17th TOUR title at the Sentry TOC, winning by eight shots over Jon Rahm.
Feb 7 - 4:50 PM

Dustin Johnson will make a second appearance in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship at Abu Dhabi GC, hoping to retain the form he closed last season's renewal with.

Twelve months ago Johnson made his tournament debut and could only muster a round one level-par 72. It left him T75 and eight swings back of the lead. A Friday 68 got him inside the cut line (T38), but he remained those eight shots back. Cue a weekend 64-68, a 12-under last 36-hole total which bettered by three anything the rest of the field could manage as he raced into a tie for second. Add it to his dominant eight-shot victory in the season-opening Tournament of Champions and you can understand why he is the bookmakers favorite. Possible chinks in the armour? Travel: he's had to get from Hawaii to the U.A.E. In this day and age, part of the job though. More realistically, perhaps, the field will remember how he blew his six shot 54-hole lead in the HSBC Champions. Flipside of that is that we've learned that whilst they might recall it, he's unlikely to.
Jan 16 - 5:35 AM

Overnight leader and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson, a pre-tourney 7/1 outright, twirled a week-low 8-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions to reach 24-under 268, good for an eight-shot victory over Jon Rahm, his 17th PGA TOUR title in his 223rd career event, and improves to 8-for-14 when leading/co-leading after 54 holes.

The 33-year-old records his sixth top 10 in eight tries at the Sentry, fifth straight, and his second win, joining the weather-shortened edition in 2013. He wins in his second start of the season and is a second top 2 after finishing T2 at the WGC-HSBC Champions, where he was the 36- and 54-hole leader. After kicking off in 69-68-65, the South Carolina native began with a two-shot lead over playing competitor Brian Harman, four clear of Rahm. He hit 11 (of 15) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 4.089 strokes off-the-tee and 4.047 tee-to-green, No. 1 for the week in both of the latter. Johnson squared a lone bogey-4 at 11, smothered by seven birdies and an eagle-2 at 12 after driving the 433-yard par 4 and coming up six inches short of an ace. He posted 1.600 putts per GIR and 1.541 SG: Putting with 28 total putts.
Jan 7 - 10:01 PM

Past champ and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson fired a week-tying-low 7-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions to reach 16-under 203, up two spots on the day and good for the 54-hole lead by two over 36-hole co-leader Brian Harman, who shot 69.

This is the 33-year-old's 14th 54-hole lead/co-lead in 223 career events, previously 7-for-13 converting. Most recently, he coughed up a six-shot lead at the WGC-HSBC in his last official start back in Oct., eventually finishing T2 (to Justin Rose) with a 5-over 77. After opening in 69-68, the 2013 winner began in solo 3rd, one back of co-leaders Marc Leishman and Harman. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he found 10 (of 15) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, gaining 2.229 strokes off-the-tee and 5.797 tee-to-green, No. 1 for the week in both of the latter. The South Carolina native squared a lone bogey-4 at 11, silenced by six birdies, three two-putt varieties, adding a hole-out eagle-2 at 12 from 72 yards away. He recorded 1.688 putts per GIR, No. 1 in that stat as well (cumulative 1.634), took 30 total putts and lost 0.385 strokes on-the-green.
Jan 6 - 7:10 PM

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson staked his claim as the early 36-hole clubhouse leader following a 5-under-par 35-34=69 on Friday, becoming the first to sign for 9-under 137 at the midpoint. UPDATE: Johnson would settle for sole possession of third place by day's end.

DJ's power was on full display today. He pelted six drives over 365 yards. The most notable was a 414-yard poke at the par-4 12th which ultimately led to a 4'11" birdie splash. That was just one of his four back-nine circles, all of them coming from inside nine feet. This position is nothing new for Johnson who held the solo lead at the midpoint during the 2013 edition of this event (he went on to win that weather-shortened edition). At the time he signed his card today, DJ ranked 2nd in the field in strokes gained off-the-tee for the week, 3rd in strokes gained around-the-green, and 7th in strokes gained putting. He may bomb-and-gouge his way into a second win on Maui.
Jan 5 - 9:58 PM

Dustin Johnson rocketed out of the gate with a 4-under-par 34-35=69 during round one of the Sentry Tournament of Champions, staking out an early seat inside the top 5 on the leaderboard.

World No. 1 arrived with plenty of experience at Kapalua Resort's Plantation Course. This is his eighth time making the trip to Maui. DJ was forced to lay off the gas at times today, but he still managed to pump out six drives of 367 yards or longer (thanks to some generous slopes). The highlight of the round came at the par-4 fifth where he knocked in a 15'5" eagle roll. Starting round two just two strokes off the pace, Johnson is definitely one of the favorites to hoist the hardware, come Sunday night.
Jan 4 - 10:11 PM

Past champ and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson arrives for the 34-man no-cut Sentry Tournament of Champions off a T14 (of 18) five weeks ago at the unofficial Hero World Challenge.

As 18-hole co-leader and 36-hole leader, the 33-year-old claimed the weather-shortened 2013 edition, which didn't begin until Mon., and was eventually completed on Tue., reduced to 54 holes. He is one of three past champs on Maui, joining 2016 winner Jordan Spieth and defending champ Justin Thomas. In seven visits, the Florida resident has recorded five top 10s (five straight), adding T6's in 2014 and last year, which are his next-best finishes. He's won at least one tournament in 10 consecutive seasons on TOUR, including four last season in 20 starts, highlighted by three straight at the Genesis, WGC-Mexico, and WGC-Match Play. The 2016 Player of the Year added THE NORTHERN TRUST in the postseason opener, but was his lone top 10 in the Playoffs which ended with a T17 (of 30) at the TOUR Championship. In his only official start this season, he finished T2 at the WGC-HSBC, where he was the 36- and 54-hole leader, but closed in 5-over 77 to lose by two.
Jan 3 - 1:40 PM

Dustin Johnson endured an early Halloween in the final round of the WGC-HSBC Champions at Sheshan International GC; his horror show final round 5-over-par 38-39=77 totalling 12-under 276 for the week, T2, but ceding a pre-round six shot lead.

He insisted afterward that there was an element of confusion in his assessment of the shocking turn of events. "Felt like I actually drove it pretty well and even making the turn, I'm 2-over, which is fine," he said. "I know I've got to just play solid on the back nine, but I didn't make any putts. Rolled it good. Just nothing was going in the hole." Perhaps the pressure told because he then added: "Hit a couple really bad iron shots. I just chunked it on 14. Same thing on 15. And then bogeying 16, that's just bad." The latter refers to the short par-4. He was 60 yards from the green from the tee, flubbed into a bunker, escaped, but missed the 8'0" par putt. He had opened with back-to-back bogeys, but it was only late in the day he was passed. Blue numbers at 12, 15 and 16 his undoing as Justin Rose swept by and completed a two shot victory.

Dustin Johnson assumed control of the 2017 WGC-HSBC Champions with a powerful third round performance in blustery conditions; his 4-under-par 33-35=68 earned him a 17-under total of 199, fully six shots clear of his nearest pursuer Brooks Koepka at Sheshan International GC in Shanghai.

After 36 holes of frenzied scoring Saturday was a tougher proposition and Johnson's 68 was equal best for the day. More importantly he was the only player in contention for the title to total it - and yet he started both nines on the back foot. The front began with a bogey-5, but his third birdie of the week at No. 2 was the perfect bounce back and he ticked 4, 7 and 8 (from 25'0") before the turn. By this stage he had taken the lead thanks to Koepka making a ruinous eight at the 8th (a four shot swing), but the World No.1 then made double bogey-6 at 10. No matter, he circled 11, 14 and 16 to sprint clear of the field. He was so dialled in at 15 that his approach clattered into the pin on the fly, ricochetting 10 feet away; he didn't get the birdie he deserved. This is the largest 54-hole lead of his career. Four times he led by three at this stage, once by five. Only once did he cede those advantages, in the 2010 U.S. Open. He is chasing a third WGC title of 2017.
