Overnight co-leader and 1-seed Dustin Johnson coughed up a 3-over-par 36-37=73 in today's final round of the TOUR Championship to drop five places on the leaderboard into a two-way T6 on 5-under 275, relinquishing the tournament and FedExCup title to champion Rory McIlroy, who won in sudden death over Ryan Moore and Kevin Chappell.
The FEC leader began the final frame co-leading with playing competitor Chappell on 8-under, two clear of McIlroy and Moore who comprised the next-to-last twosome. His task was simple, win the Playoffs finale and he wins the FEC crown. The 32-year-old, whose win at the U.S. Open pushed aside several final-round disappointments in his career, will have a new set of demons after posting the worst lap of the day. For a second straight round, he mustered just six (of 14) fairways en route to only two birdies versus three bogeys and a double. Johnson swallowed a -3.430 in SG: Putting and played his final 11 holes in birdie-less 3-over. Despite his final-round woes, he still had a chance to claim the $10M FEC bonus, provided that McIlroy didn't win the tourney, but the Northern Irishman did in dramatic fashion. Both now lead their respective teams into this week's Ryder Cup. Sep 25 - 7:50 PM

Overnight leader Dustin Johnson bobbed and weaved to a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in today's third round of the TOUR Championship to post 8-under 202, dropping into a share of the lead with Kevin Chappell.

The FedExCup leader began the third frame with a one-shot lead over playing competitor Chappell, his fourth 36-hole lead/co-lead this season in his 22nd start. He raced out with three straight circles on holes 4-6, but gave one back at the par-4 seventh (failed scramble) to turn 2-under. The 32-year-old, who co-led with Chappell after R1, missed birdie from 8'10" at the par-3 11th, but coaxed in a 12-footer for birdie-3 at 12. Back-to-back bogeys followed on 13 and 14, the former a 3-putt from 70 feet, before dropping a 14-footer for birdie-2 at 15. Johnson swallowed an all-over-the-yard double bogey-6 at the 17th, but bounced back with an up-and-down birdie on 18 from 4'6". This is his second 54-hole lead/co-lead this season, converting his first at the BMW Championship, where he led outright.
Sep 24 - 3:34 PM

Overnight tri-leader Dustin Johnson styled a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the second round of the TOUR Championship to post 7-under 133, good for a one-shot lead over overnight tri-leader Kevin Chappell.

The FedExCup leader landed eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.583 putts per GIR and 0.936 SG: Putting. He went out in bogey-free 2-under, circling back-to-backs at Nos. 5 and 6, both from between six and seven feet. The 32-year-old connected two more birdies on 10 and 11, both from inside of 10 feet, and then outbalanced a 12-footer for birdie-3 at 16 with bogeys at 12 and 17 on failed scrambles. This is his 22nd start of the season and fourth time he's led/co-led thru 36 holes (second straight event), converting 2 of 3 thus far into victories (2016 U.S. Open, 2016 BMW Championship). DJ also co-led the RBC Canadian Open thru 36, eventually finishing T2.
Sep 23 - 5:55 PM

FedExCup leader Dustin Johnson opened his week at the TOUR Championship with a 4-under-par 32-34=66, joining Kevin Chappell and Hideki Matsuyama as the leaders after day one.

DJ started off the day in style by stiffing his 158-yard approach to 2'2" for a tap-in birdie at the difficult par-4 first. It was one of just three birdies surrendered by the hole, for the entire day. The next two circles were added via the putting, splashing in putts of 19'3" and 21'10" at the par-4 fifth and par-5 sixth, respectively. The 32-year-old found his lone bogey of the round at the par-4 13th when he found trouble off the tee, forcing him to punch out on his second shot. Johnson has never finished better than fifth place at East Lake Golf Club, but he's playing the best golf of his career right now and is likely the favorite to hoist the trophy as day one comes to an end.
Sep 22 - 6:06 PM

With a final-round 5-under-par 33-34=67, overnight leader and past champ Dustin Johnson won the BMW Championship at Crooked Stick GC by three shots over Paul Casey, posting a tournament record (to par) of 23-under 265, eclipsing 22-under two times, most recently by Jason Day in 2015 (Conway Farms GC).

This is the 32-year-old's third win of the season in 21 events with each coming in his last eight starts. He joins World No. 1 Day as the only three-time winners this season and heads to the TOUR Championship as the new FedExCup leader. It's the South Carolinian's 12th career title in 200 career events and his third win in the Playoffs, joining Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy for the most all-time. He began the finale with a three-shot lead over Casey, led by three at the turn, and in the end, won by three. For the week, DJ carded three eagles and 24 birdies against seven bogeys and wrapped by outpacing three squares with six birdies and a pivotal eagle-3 at the 15th (from 18'1") that completed his scoring. He improves to 3-for-7 as a 54-hole leader/co-leader and 5-for-9 when leading/co-leading at the midpoint.
Sep 11 - 6:13 PM

Overnight co-leader and past champ Dustin Johnson fired a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in today's third round of the BMW Championship to reach the three-quarter pole on 18-under 198, good for a three-shot lead over last week's runner-up Paul Casey.

Coming off a course-record 63 that gave him a share of the 36-hole lead with Roberto Castro, the 32-year-old answered bogeys at Nos. 1 and 13 (failed scrambles) with six birdies, finishing off in style with four birdies over his final five holes. He striped 12 (of 14) fairways and pelted 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.571 putts per GIR. The South Carolinian converted five chances from inside of 11 feet and walked off with a 17-footer at the par-4 18th. Making his 21st start of the season, this is his eighth lead after ANY round, but first thru 54 holes. Johnson's wins at the U.S. Open and the WGC-Bridgestone were both come-from-behind in the final round, though he was the 36-hole co-leader at Oakmont.
Sep 10 - 7:54 PM

Past champ Dustin Johnson fired a bogey-free course-record 9-under-par 32-31=63 in the second round of the BMW Championship to post 14-under 130, good for a share of the 36-hole lead with Roberto Castro.

The 2010 winner (Cog Hill G&CC) breaks the course record, previously 64 by seven players, six in the only other BMW at Crooked Stick GC, (2012), and Ryan Palmer earlier today in R2. Using a new putter this week, (TaylorMade Itsby Bitsy Ghost Spider), the South Carolinian circled Nos. 1, 3, 11, 13 and 14, highlighted by a 31'7" roll for birdie on the par-4 14th, adding eagle-3s at 9 and 15, both from off the green. His first was a hole-out from a greenside bunker at 9, 45'7" from the target, and the second was a 25-footer from the fringe at 15 that completed his scoring. Johnson split nine (of 14) fairways and pelted 15 greens in regulation, posting 1.467 putts per GIR and 1.719 SG: Putting, currently leading in both of those putting stats thru 36 holes. His 63 matches a season low (76 rounds), which he shot in the final round of the FESJC to back-door solo fifth.
Sep 9 - 4:56 PM

Dustin Johnson squeezed in a 5-under-par 33-34=67 during round one of the BMW Championship, just before the horn sounded to suspend play due to darkness at 7:56 p.m. ET. The stranded golfers will return at 8:00 a.m. tomorrow to finish their rounds.

DJ circled seven birdies in his opening navigation of Crooked Stick Golf Club. He took an unconventional route, by his standards. Instead of thrashing the course, tee-to-green, he split five fairways and landed just 10 greens, but gained his strokes with the flat stick, instead. The 32-year-old dropped in five putts from outside eight feet, including an 18'2" birdie at the par-4 14th as the longest. He's currently pacing the field with 3.948 strokes gained putting. Johnson should pick it up, tee-to-green, making him tough to catch if his putter stays this hot as the week progresses.
Sep 8 - 8:12 PM

Dustin Johnson closed on a high note at the Deutsche Bank Championship, signing a 5-under-par 33-33=66 to reach 9-under 275 at week's end, good for T11 on the live leaderboard with play still in progress.

DJ stormed out of the gates with rounds of 68-66 before backpedaling on Sunday with a 4-over 75. He rebounded just fine today, landing 14 greens and rolling in four putts from the 8-to-11 foot range. He walked off the course gaining 5.914 strokes off-the-tee, for the week, good for second place in the field at the moment. This will be his second top 20 of this year's FedExCup Playoffs after a T18 at last week's Barclays. Next on the docket will be the BMW Championship at Crooked Stick, where Johnson previously finished T6 back in 2012.
Sep 5 - 12:28 PM

Dustin Johnson signed for a 5-under-par 33-33=66 after today's second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to reach halftime on 8-under 134, up 15 spots to T5, three back of 36-hole leader Kevin Chappell.

The 32-year-old was bogey-free 7-under thru 17 holes, and then walked-off with a 3-putt double bogey-7 at the 18th. He striped his drive 295 yards in the fairway, leaving 238 yards for his second, and sliced it into the woods. The South Carolinian found the surface with his fourth from the drop zone, and then 3-jacked from 44'11". It took the luster off an otherwise sterling round, where he circled seven birdies on 12 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation. DJ posted 4.961 SG: Tee-to-Green, but a -0.982 SG: Putting. His split featured five conversions from between five and seven feet, kicking off with a long of 35'11" on the par-4 first. The world No. 2 also 3-putted the par-5 second (from 29'5") for par, and missed four birdie tries from inside of 11 feet.
Sep 3 - 8:44 PM

Dustin Johnson pieced together a 3-under-par 34-34=68 during the opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, sitting two off the leaders as the afternoon wave gets underway.

DJ opened on the back nine and swallowed an early bogey at the par-3 11th. He would play bogey-free golf after the early error. The first highlight came at the par-5 18th where he stuck his 222-yard approach to 9'4" and splashed it in for an eagle. Two holes later he got a lucky break when he landed his approach on the par-5 second in the area that most years is full of water. With drier conditions this year, he was able to chip out and circle a birdie in the process. This goes in the books as his 20th red number at TPC Boston (25th round).
Sep 2 - 2:23 PM

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.
