Defending champ and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson handed in a 7-under-par 32-32=64 after the final round of the BMW Championship for a four-day total of 8-under 276, up 24 spots to T31 with play still in progress.
The two-time BMW champ never factored, opening in 71-72-69 before an eight-birdie one-bogey showing. He entered the week at 3rd in the FedExCup standings and is projected to remain there heading to East Lake. The 33-year-old and reigning TOUR POY has four wins this season, including the kickoff Playoffs event at THE NORTHERN TRUST to regain the No. 1 spot in the FEC standings, but immediately lost that spot with T18 (Dell) and this week's uninspiring effort, the final round notwithstanding.

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson is trending nicely ahead of his appearance at this week's BMW Championship, playing the role of defending champion at the event held in Lake Forest, Illinois.

After a three-event mid-season slump, DJ arrives with five straight top 20s, including a win at THE NORTHERN TRUST. He appears to be over the injury that plagued him for a brief period, gaining an average of 8.3 strokes tee-to-green over his last five starts. While DJ will have the title of defending champion this week, the host course is moving from Crooked Stick to Conway Farms Golf Club. In two attempts at Conway Farms, DJ has two very different results. He posted a T62 (2013) but returned two years later to finish T7. He arrives in even better form this time around, making him a top-tier option in all fantasy formats.

First-round leader and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson authored a bogey-free 5-under-par 35-31=66 in the third round of the Dell Technologies Championship to post 9-under 204, up 11 spots on the live leaderboard to T4, three shy of playing competitor and 54-hole clubhouse leader Justin Thomas, who shot 63. UPDATE: With play completed, Johnson is T7, three back of co-leaders Thomas and Marc Leishman.

The FedExCup leader followed an opening 66 with 72 and rebounded with another 66 on Day 3, circling four of his final five holes. He landed 10 (of 14) fairways and pelted 15 greens in regulation, currently No. 1 in GIR at a cumulative 81.48% (44/54). The 33-year-old circled five (for a third day in a row) at holes 3, 14-16 and 18, two from between 10 and 45 feet, adding a pitch-in birdie-3 at 15 from 19'9" away. He recorded 1.733 putts per GIR and -0.021 SG: Putting, taking 28 total putts.

Overnight leader and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson back-pedaled to a 1-over-par 35-37=72 in the second round of the Dell Technologies Championship, falling 14 spots on the live leaderboard to T15 on 4-under 138, five in arrears of 36-hole leader Jon Rahm.

The FedExCup leader hit eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, currently No. 1 in GIR at 80.56 percent (29/36). He gained 0.133 strokes off-the-tee and 0.340 approaching-the-green, but lost 2.031 around-the-green. The 33-year-old carded five birdies at holes 1, 2, 6, 14 and 18, all from inside of 11 feet, outbalanced by two bogey-4s at 3 and 8, and two double bogey-6s at 10 and 15, none of his drops included any penalty strokes. He posted 1.692 putts per GIR and -0.355 SG: Putting, taking 29 total putts.

Riding a wave of momentum from last week's win, Dustin Johnson twirled a 5-under-par 35-31=66 during round one of the Dell Technologies Championship, claiming the early lead in the clubhouse as the afternoon wave gets underway.

DJ opened his week with a 36'6" birdie bomb at the par-4 10th to set the tone for the day. His putter cooled off from there, but his ball-striking didn't. Johnson would give himself five scoring chances from inside seven feet, including the most notable which came at the par-5 18th. It was there that he stuck his 221-yard approach to 4'5" for a stress-free eagle. Johnson walked off the course gaining 5.547 strokes tee-to-green (No. 1 in the field at the time). After a mini mid-season-slump, Johnson is firing on all cylinders once again.
Sep 1 - 2:18 PM

Second-round co-leader and past champ Dustin Johnson painted a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the final round of THE NORTHERN TRUST, erasing a three-shot deficit to catch playing competitor and 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth on 13-under 267, and then defeated him with birdie-3 on the first hole of sudden death, the par-4 18th, improving his record in sudden death to 1-1.

The 33-year-old, a pre-tourney 14/1 outright, bags his 16th PGA TOUR title in his 218th career start. It's his fourth win of the season, first since the WGC-Match Play 10 starts ago, tying Justin Thomas for the season lead. The 2011 winner (Plainfield CC), claims his fourth FedExCup Playoffs victory in 30 events, second in his last three tries (2016, BMW Championship), and regains the No. 1 spot in the FEC standings. After opening in 65-69-67, he began in solo 2nd. Playing out of the final twosome, he hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting 2.001 SG: Off-the-Tee and 1.776 SG: Approach-the-Green. The World No. 1 circled four at Nos. 9, 10, 13 and 15 (from 17'7"), and forced extra time with a 17'5" par-saver at the last. In sudden death, he followed a 341-yard drive with a 94-yard laser to 43 inches, which he dropped for the win.
Aug 27 - 6:36 PM

Overnight quad-leader and past champ Dustin Johnson orchestrated a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of THE NORTHERN TRUST to reach 9-under 201, down one spot to solo 2nd, three shy of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth, who fired a day-tying-low 64.

After opening in 65-69, the 2011 champ co-led with three others, including Spieth. Playing out of the final twosome with Jhonattan Vegas (72), he found 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.152 strokes approaching-the-green and 1.157 around-the-green. The Coastal Carolina product, sporting a new putter this week, squared a lone bogey-5 at No. 8, offset by four birdies at 3, 5, 13 and 18, all from inside of seven feet. He recorded 1.692 putts per GIR and -0.423 SG: Putting, taking 28 total putts. Johnson is chasing his 16th career TOUR title, fourth this season, and first since the WGC-Match Play back in March.
Aug 26 - 6:21 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, past champ and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson carved out a 1-under-par 36-33=69 in the second round of THE NORTHERN TRUST to reach 6-under 134, up one spot to T1 and good for a share of the early 36-hole clubhouse lead with Jhonattan Vegas and playing competitor Rickie Fowler. UPDATE: With play completed, Johnson is tied for the lead with three others. It's his 12th career 36-hole lead/co-lead, previously 6-for-11 converting.

The 2011 champ (Plainfield CC) landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 0.908 strokes off-the-tee, 0.737 approaching-the-green and 0.726 around-the-green. He was blemish-free 3-under thru 12 holes, circling Nos. 11, 14 and 3, all from inside of 10 feet, but completed his scoring with back-to-back bogey-5s at 4 and 5, both on failed scrambles. The Coastal Carolina product posted a pedestrian 1.786 putts per GIR and 0.158 SG: Putting, taking 29 total putts. He missed two scoring tries from inside of seven feet but did drop a 12-foot 5-inch par-saver on 8, his second-to-last hole, to avoid further damage.
Aug 25 - 1:39 PM

Dustin Johnson blitzed Glen Oaks Club to the tune of a 5-under-par 34-31=65 during round one of THE NORTHERN TRUST, placing him one off the pace set by Russell Henley.

DJ entered the week ranked 4th in the FedExCup race. He'd love to stay inside the coveted top-5 slot ahead of East Lake, while he'd also love to pick up a few wins and make the Player of the Year race a little interesting. So far, so good, for Johnson who gained 2.304 strokes off-the-tee today in addition to 2.658 strokes gained on approach. That helped him setup eight scoring chances from inside 12 feet today, converting on five of them. His sixth birdie came from 17'3" at the par-3 sixth hole. After a mini-slump that took place in June and July, DJ has rattled off three straight top 20s and appears to be approaching top form again, just in time for the Playoffs.
Aug 24 - 6:19 PM

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson has shown signs of form ahead of his attempted title defense at this week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

DJ has finished T54 or worse in three of his last four starts, including a pair of missed cuts. That is very uncharacteristic for the big hitter, but there is a sign of form on the horizon. A third-round 6-under 64 rocketed him up to T7 at The Open before he faded on Sunday. Last week, he gained 6.6 strokes approaching-the-green at the RBC Canadian Open, but couldn't find the bottom of the cup with the putter. Johnson still managed a T8 despite losing 0.4 strokes putting on the week. This mini-slump may be a thing of the past as DJ preps for a title defense at Firestone CC. Last year he cruised to twin 66s over the weekend to climb from T22 to the winner's circle. Oddly enough, that was his first top 10 at this event in seven tries.

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson fashioned a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open to finish up on 17-under 271, up eight spots to solo 8th with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Johnson finished T8, four shots shy of a two-man playoff involving 54-hole leader Charley Hoffman and defending champ Jhonattan Vegas.

This was the 33-year-old's fifth RBC, third top 25 and a possible third top 10, joining runner-up finishes in 2013 and last year. It's his ninth top 25 of the season in 14 starts, first since T13 four starts ago at the Byron Nelson, and a possible seventh top 10, first since T2 at the Wells Fargo six starts ago. After opening in 67-69-68, the Coastal Carolina product began T16 on 12-under, five back of 54-hole leader Charley Hoffman. He found eight (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, currently No. 1 in GIR at 79.17 percent (57/72). The Jupiter, Florida, resident circled holes 2 and 6, stalled out mid-round with nine straight pars before eagling the 16th from 8'2" and walking off with birdie-4 from 37 inches. He posted a pedestrian 1.786 putts per GIR and -0.033 SG: Putting, taking 29 total putts.
Jul 30 - 5:36 PM

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson contests his fifth RBC Canadian Open and arrives at No. 2 in the FedExCup standings.

Johnson was a 5/1 co-fave outright last year and was a first- and second-round co-leader (66-71), dipping to T2 with 71-69. He's a pre-tourney 6/1 fave this year, arriving out of sorts with two missed cuts (Memorial, U.S. Open), and a pedestrian T54 at last week's Open, where he was T7 thru 54 holes but chased a stellar 6-under 64 in R3 with a dismal 7-over 77, his second-worst round of the season. Overall, the 33-year-old is 2-for-4 at the Canadian Open, with both cashes T2s (2013), mired a tad with a MC in 2014 and a WD in 2008 after R1. He spent 17 consecutive weeks on top of the FEC standings, but was bumped by Open Champion Jordan Spieth.

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson breezed through Royal Birkdale with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 30-34=64 during round three of The 146th Open, flying up the leaderboard to reach 3-under 207 ahead of the finale.

DJ flew out of the gate with birdies at 1, 4, 5, and 7. At that time it looked like Johnson may be the one to chase down Branden Grace who just posted the coveted 62. Instead, Johnson slowed his pace and picked up just two more birdies, doing well to avoid any bogeys, though. The big hitter has been a scrambling machine all week, getting up-and-down 23 times through three rounds, the most of anyone in the field. While Royal Birkdale may not be the ideal fit for a bomber like DJ, he is still right in the thick of things, currently T6 on the live leaderboard with play still in progess. Johnson has finished T14 or better in five of his last seven Open Championship appearances, and that could be 6-of-8 by tomorrow night.
Jul 22 - 11:46 AM

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson is lacking any sign of form ahead of his appointment with Royal Birkdale for this week's Open Championship.

DJ entered the year's first major on the heels of three straight wins. He had no flaws in his game and seemed to be untouchable at the time. Then came the staircase incident forcing him to withdraw from the Masters. He rebounded with a runner-up finish at the Wells Fargo Championship but has finished outside the top 10 in the four starts since. That includes back-to-back missed cuts in the lead-up to this week's event. He's been dormant for a month since missing the cut at the U.S. Open, making his form a bit of a question mark. In his favor, Johnson has five top 15s in his last seven Open Championship appearances, so links golf is right up his alley. Gamers are well aware of his immense upside, but the lack of form makes him a bit riskier than usual.

Defending champ, World No. 1 and pre-tourney odds-fave Dustin Johnson labored to a 1-over-par 35-38=73 in the second round of the 117th U.S. Open and at 4-over 75-73=148, missed the cut by three shots.

A total of 68 (66 pros and two ams) from a field of 142 pros and 14 ams made the 36-hole cut of 1-over 145. Johnson, a 13/2 outright, opened in 75 (one birdie, two bogeys, double bogey-7) and hit 12 (of 14) fairways and 13 GIR in R2, cancelling three birdies with four bogeys. The FedExCup leader was 2-under thru 12 holes (on the cut line), but played his final six in birdie-less 3-over. For the short week, he was No. 2 SG: Off-the-Tee (3.567), but 125th SG: Approach-the-Green and 144th SG: Putting (-4.594). This is DJ's second straight MC, exiting the Memorial by five (78-74), and second straight MC in a major (2016 PGA).
