Past champ Dustin Johnson twirled a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of The Barclays to post 4-under 209, up 28 spots on the live leaderboard to T11.
The 32-year-old won the 2011 edition at Plainfield CC, reduced to 54 holes. He began his eighth appearance in 70-72 (T39), eight in arrears to 36-hole leader Patrick Reed. Thru 17 holes, the South Carolinian was 5-under, camouflaging bogey-4 at the eighth with birdies on Nos. 4, 7, 9, 11, 13 and 17, but for a third straight round, bogeyed the par-4 18th. He found eight (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, circling five conventional birdies (long of 20'0" at the par-4 ninth), and pitching in from the rough 26'2" away for birdie-4 at 13. Johnson, who entered the week No. 2 in the FedExCup standings, was postive in all strokes gained categories, highlighted by 3.576 SG: Tee-to-Green. Aug 27 - 4:51 PM

Dustin Johnson preps for his third look at Bethpage State Park's Black Course as he readies for this week's Barclays.

DJ debuted at Bethpage Black with a T40 during the 2009 U.S. Open. He returned three years later to post a T3 at the 2012 Barclays. Fast forward to now, and DJ arrives ranked second in the FedExCup race, thanks to a 17-for-18 record with a pair of wins. Johnson has finished outside the top 20 just three times this season. With Bethpage Black stretching out to 7,468 yards, Johnson will certainly put his distance to good use this week. He remains an elite option in all fantasy formats.

A total of 86 players made the cut on 2-over 142 at the 98th PGA Championship but FedExCup leader Dustin Johnson (77-72=149) and two-time PGA champ Rory McIlroy (74-69=143) weren't among them. UPDATE: Although 86 players, there is no 54-hole cut (MDF) in majors (or the FedExCup Playoffs).

World No. 2 Johnson and World No. 4 McIlroy were pre-tourney co-faves at 8/1. Johnson, whose TOUR-leading consecutive cuts made streak ends at 25, opened his seventh PGA in a 7-over 77 that included a lone birdie-2 against four bogeys and two doubles. He mustered just one birdie-2 again in R2, outpacing it with three bogeys. For McIlroy, who missed his first PGA cut in his eighth visit, he began with a birdie-less 74 and after canning a 33'11" birdie-4 at 17, needed only a par 5 at the 18th (easiest hole) to make the cut, but slopped to a bogey-6 from the middle of the fairway. Other notables with early exits include: 143- Scott Piercy; Chris Wood ... 144- Byeong-Hun An; J.B. Holmes ... 145- Kevin Chappell; Gary Woodland; Shane Lowry; Sergio Garcia; Charley Hoffman ... 146- Matt Kuchar ... 147- Tony Finau ... 149- Graeme McDowell.

FedExCup leader Dustin Johnson rallied for a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in today's final round of the RBC Canadian Open to conclude his fourth appearance in a three-way T2 on 11-under 277, one swing back of champion Jhonattan Vegas.

The 32-year-old didn't play last year's edition at Glen Abbey GC, but did compete the time prior in 2013, finishing T2 as well. He was chasing his third win of the season and third in his last four starts, but settles for his sixth straight top 10 and eighth career runner-up. DJ is the TOUR leader in top 10s this season with 12 in 17 starts and has 10 top 5s, including five in his last six events. He began the finale in a two-way T2, one back of overnight leader (and 2013 champ) Brandt Snedeker. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he was even-par thru 15 holes, exchanging two birdies with two bogeys, before eagle at the par-5 16th from 12'11" and an up-and-down birdie at the par-5 18th. Johnson's only par breakers in R4 came on the four par 5s. He was No. 1 for the week in SG: Off-the-Tee (6.996) but 52nd (of 80) in SG: Approach-to-the-Green, including a -2.996 in R4.

Overnight co-leader Dustin Johnson submitted a 1-under-par 34-37=71 after today's third round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 8-under 208, down one place into a two-way T2, one back of 54-hole leader and 2013 champ Brandt Snedeker.

The FedExCup leader co-led after each of the first two rounds with Luke List, his playing partner on Day 3. While List was scuffling about to a 77, DJ pieced together a four-birdie three-bogey showing. He landed a week-best 14 greens in regulation, but posted a pedestrian 1.929 putts per GIR and -0.438 SG: Putting. The 32-year-old is looking for his third win this season, third in his last four starts. His victories at the WGC-Bridgestone and the U.S. Open were both in come-from-behind fashion. Johnson will play out of the penultimate twosome and if he wins on Sunday, it'll be the first time he's recorded three victories in one season and will be his 12th overall in 196 career starts.

Overnight co-leader Dustin Johnson rallied for a 1-under-par 32-39=71 in today's second round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 7-under 137, down one spot on the live leaderboard to solo second and good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Johnson is tied for the lead with overnight co-leader Luke List.

Johnson's opening 66 was good for his 12th 18-hole lead/co-lead in his 196th career start). He's only converted on those leads one time (2010, AT&T Pebble Beach) and most recently, led after 18 holes at this year's Memorial before finishing third. The FedExCup leader began R2 off No. 10 tee and landed eight (of 14) fairways, 10 greens in regulation and recorded 1.700 putts per GIR. He surrendered four strokes in his first four holes with bogeys at 11 and 13 and a double bogey-5 at the 12th, but rebounded to play his final 14 holes in 5-under, carding six birdies against one bogey the rest of the way, including three straight circles on holes 18, 1 and 2. The 32-year-old posted 1.958 SG: Off-the-Tee and 1.183 in SG: Putting to overshadow a -2.170 SG: Around-the-Green.

Dustin Johnson blitzed Glen Abbey Golf Club on his way to a 6-under-par 33-33=66 during the first round of the RBC Canadian Open, grabbing a share of the early lead with Luke List.

DJ continued his recent trend of accuracy off the tee, striping 10 (of 14) fairways, more than three over the field average on the day (6.47). His distance is always there, making the par 5s a breeze, playing them at 4-under today, including an eagle at the closing 18th. A 365-yard drive left him with just 148 yards into the green and he stuck it to 10'11" then splashed it home. His big blemish of the day came at the par-4 14th when he found water off the tee and swallowed a double bogey. In his last trip to Glen Abbey (2013) he finished T2 and enters on the heels of five straight top 10s, including two wins. There is no reason to expect him to falter as the week progresses, especially with the reachable par 5s at Glen Abbey catering to his game.
Jul 21 - 7:04 PM

Dustin Johnson ended his week at The 145th Open with a 1-under-par 36-34=70, still managing to collect a top 10 at 2-under 282 by week's end.

It was a quiet round for DJ, who so often signs a colorful scorecard. This time around he traded a birdie with a bogey on holes 3 and 4 and also added a circle at the par-4 13th hole. Other than that, it was all pars for the bomber. On the week he found 13 birdies but couldn't avoid the big numbers. In addition to four bogeys, he swallowed two doubles and a triple. The biggest culprit was the difficult par-4 11th hole, playing it at 5-over on the week. Despite the big numbers, Johnson closed out the week inside the top 10, making him the only golfer in the world to collect top 10s in each of the first three majors this season. He failed on his bid to win three starts in a row, but he's now posted finishes of 3-5-1-1-9 over his last five.
Jul 17 - 12:31 PM

World No. 2 Dustin Johnson rallied for a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in today's second round of the 145th Open Championship for a two-day total of 2-under 140, up 27 places on the live leaderboard to T24, eight in arrears to 36-hole clubhouse leader Phil Mickelson.

With a win this week, the FedExCup leader can overtake Jason Day for the top spot in the world rankings, but has a way to go before that can become a reality. He entered with back-to-back wins in his last two starts, both come-from-behind, and was T22 thru 36 holes at Firestone CC before 66-66 and a one-shot victory. The 32-year-old opened his eighth Open with a two-birdie, two-bogey 71 to sit eight back of overnight leader Mickelson, and each shot 69s today. He birdied Nos. 2, 4 and 8 to outpace a double bogey-6 at the seventh and turn 1-under. Johnson went into the black with a double at the 11th, but rebounded to connect three straight birdies on holes 15-17.
Jul 15 - 9:04 AM

World No. 3 Dustin Johnson fashioned a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in today's final round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational to conclude his seventh appearance on 6-under 274, good for one-shot win over overnight co-leader Scott Piercy.

The 32-year-old arrived off his first major championship win, coming from four back in the final round to win the U.S. Open. This week, he began the finale three adrift of Piercy and Jason Day, erasing the deficit with six birdies against two bogeys. It's his third WGC title, joining the 2014 HSBC and the 2015 Cadillac Championship, bagging each in come-from-behind fashion. Johnson bogeyed the third and the 18th, but camouflaged them with birdies at Nos. 2, 5, 6, 13, 14 and 17, capping with a 16-footer at the par-4 17th. This is his 11th TOUR title in his 194th career start and will move to No. 2 in the Official World Golf Ranking. DJ's previous best at Firestone was 15th in 2010. After opening in 69-73 to sit T22 after 36 holes, he played the weekend in twin 66s.
Jul 3 - 6:02 PM

Dustin Johnson fired the the low round of the day when he pieced together a 4-under-par 31-35=66 during round three of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, and will enter the finale at 2-under 208.

DJ struggled with the flat stick in round two, but we saw that wouldn't be the case today early in the round. He splashed home a 9'10" par-saver at No. 2 and drilled a 14'8" birdie at the par-4 fourth hole. Johnson would add two more converted putts from outside 11 feet before his round was over, including a monster 45'5" birdie at the par-4 11th. His strokes gained putting improved 3.636, round-over-round. DJ is the first golfer to sign for a 4-under round today. In six previous starts at Firestone Country Club, Johnson has posted nothing better than a 15th-place finish (2010) but he's in great position to eclipse that tomorrow.
Jul 2 - 4:18 PM

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.
Jun 19 - 9:01 AM

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.
Jun 17 - 8:51 PM

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.
