Dustin Johnson backed-up with a 2-over-par 37-37=74 in the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open to post 6-under 210, three back of 54-hole co-leaders Scott Brown and K.J. Choi.
Johnson has a love-hate relationship with Torrey Pines with just one top-15 finish in seven attempts. Today's loop certainly would fall in the hate category, or maybe just indifferent, falling six spots on the day and into an eight-way T9. He began day three in solo third, one adrift of 36-hole co-leaders Gary Woodland and Choi and in the final threesome. The nine-time TOUR winner was birdie-less 4-over par thru 12 holes, squaring bogeys at Nos. 1 and 12, and swallowing a wild double bogey-6 at the 10th where he played the entire hole in the left-hand rough. He finally settled down with three birdies over his last six holes but none traveled greater than 38 inches. The 31-year-old played out of the short grass for most of the round (10/14) but managed just 11 greens in regulation and a -0.920 in strokes gained: putting. Jan 30 - 7:42 PM

In the second round of the Farmers Insurance Open, Dustin Johnson fired a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-34=66 on Torrey Pines North to post 8-under 136, good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.

DJ carved out a 2-under 70 on Torrey Pines South in yesterday's first round. He went out in bogey-free 4-under 32, but struggled to the finish line with 2-over 38, squaring three bogeys against a lone birdie at the par-5 18th. Today's loop went off No. 10 tee, and began with six straight pars before breaking the ice with birdie-3 at 16 and another circle at the par-4 18th to turn 2-under. He connected three in-a-row with birdies at Nos. 1 and 2, and added par breakers on six and eight for his final tally. The 31-year-old, playing his first full-field event of the season, had a mid-range chance for one more at the par-5 ninth, but lipped-out. He finished with six birdies on 17 greens in regulation and vaults to solo second on the live leaderboard.

Five of the top 10 players in the Official World Golf Ranking are in this week's Farmers Insurance Open and Dustin Johnson checks in at No. 8.

DJ certainly has the length to tame the 7,658-yard South Course at Torrey Pines, but it hasn't come to fruition. In seven tries at the Farmers, he has just one top-15 finish (T3, 2011), and chased that with T43/2012, T51/2013 and a MC last year on rounds of 74-70. The 31-year-old also finished a pedestrian T48 at the 2008 U.S. Open on Torrey Pines South although that was his major championship debut, so there's multiple ways to dissect that. Johnson is making his first full-field start of the season after a T5 at the WGC-HSBC Champions 12 weeks ago and a sleepy T10 at the 32-man Hyundai TOC, where he finished 15 strokes back of champion Jordan Spieth.

Dustin Johnson signed for a 4-under-par 36-33=69 in the final round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions to wrap his sixth appearance at 15-under 277, good for a five-way tie for 10th.

Through his first 13 holes on Sunday, the 2013 HTOC champ was even-par, exchanging bogeys at Nos. 1 and 8 with back-to-back birdies at 5 and 6. He missed two scoring chances from inside of eight feet on his outward half and his two circles on the card dropped from 3'9" and the other a two-putt variety at the par-5 fifth. The 31-year-old was sleepwalking prior to carding three straight on Nos. 14-16, each from less than five feet, but saved par from 8'0" on the 17th prior to rolling a 10'10" birdie on the 18th to nudge into the top 10. For the week, DJ was fifth in strokes gained: tee-to-green, but a dismal 28th in strokes gained: putting.
Jan 11 - 12:23 AM

Past champ Dustin Johnson torched The Plantation Course at Kapalua with a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-35=67 and a two-day tally of 6-under 140, up 12 spots on the live leaderboard.

As much as yesterday's even-par 73 was tied worse for DJ over 20 career rounds on Maui, today's loop tied for his personal best, which he's shot three other times. On each of those occasions, he posted that number in round two, including in his HTOC win in 2013, so today's stroll was par-for-the-course. The 31-year-old landed 13 (of 15) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation on Friday, but despite circling six on the card, he registered a -0.014 in strokes gained: putting at the time he signed his card. DJ missed three birdie putts on the back nine from 10' or less, including a 3'10" near-gimme on the par-5 last.
Jan 8 - 7:56 PM

Dustin Johnson prevailed in the weather-shortened 2013 Hyundai Tournament of Champions and returns this week for another shot at Kapalua's Plantation Course.

DJ has a long history of outlasting the rain, wind, and other elements that Mother Nature often throws at golfers. That makes him a great selection this week as The Plantation Course has no protection from the coastal winds. Johnson finds himself in this week's field thanks to a win at the 2015 WGC-Cadillac Championship. It would not be a surprise to see him qualifying for next year's Tournament of Champions by week's end.

Dustin Johnson had to settle for T5 at the WGC-HSBC Champions in China after a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in Sunday's final round at Sheshan International Golf Club.

DJ had high hopes of securing this title for the second time at start of play but it wasn't his day. He knew as much after a terrible break at the par-5 8th hole when his third shot clattered the pin and rebounded into water, leading to a double bogey-7. That took him back to even par for the day following three birdies against a bogey over his first seven holes and he slipped over par when dropping another shot at 10. Never one to dwell too much, the American recovered with birdies at 14 and 16 to climb back to T5, four shots behind eventual winner Russell Knox. Hitting 10 (of 14) fairways was Johnson's best of the week but his greens in regulation tally of 11 was a low.

Dustin Johnson's love affair with Sheshan International Golf Club continued as he hung up a bogey-free 7-under-par 31-34=65 in round three of the WGC-HSBC Champions, good enough for the clubhouse lead.

Let's work this out. After a second 65 of the week took him to 15-under 201, DJ is now a combined 39-under for his seven rounds at this course. He'll look to win this tournament for the second time on Sunday. Johnson started his surge on Moving Day by circling birdies at 2, 3, 5, 7 and 8 on the front nine before adding two more at 14 and 17 on the back. A loose drive at the 18th meant he had to settle for a closing par 5 but that hardly took the edge of his day. Right now, he has a two-shot lead in the clubhouse and trails on-course leader Kevin Kisner by a stroke. The nine-time PGA TOUR winner split 8 (of 14) fairways today and hit 12 greens in regulation. He kept his card clean with 6-for-6 scrambling stats.

Dustin Johnson didn't make it easy on himself in the second round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions, but he reeled in a 1-under-par 37-34=71.

The 2013 champ scuffled over his first 15 holes during which he dropped only two birdies and gave back four shots with bogeys. But Sheshan International has its soft spots and DJ capitalized. He walked off with three straight birdies, including a 21-footer at the par-3 17th. At 8-under 136, he's four swings adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

In his first round at Sheshan International Golf Club since his 2013 victory, Dustin Johnson fired a 7-under-par 34-31=65 on day one of the WGC-HSBC Champions in China.

DJ shot 24-under to win here two years ago and it may take something similar with the course so soft after heavy rain in Shanghai. His well-documented leave of absence meant he didn't defend this title 12 months ago but it was if he'd never been away as he circled an eagle and six birdies on his return. Johnson set the tone with a birdie at 10 and added two more at 15 and 18 with a bogey at 16 his only dropped shot of the round. He accelerated on his second nine with an eagle-3 at No. 2 and he followed it with birdies at 4, 7 and 8 to come to rest just two shots off Branden Grace's lead.

Dustin Johnson completed 36 holes of the UBS Hong Kong Open in 1-over-par 69-72=141, missing the cut by a shot.

A late bogey at the 8th hole ultimately cost the big-hitting American although he also dropped shots at 11, 18 and 1 while swallowing a double bogey-6 at No. 6. Birdies at 14, 15, 3 and 7 weren't enough to undo the damage. The fears that the short and narrow par 70 at Fanling would be a poor fit for DJ appear to have had been well founded. Other notables that failed to survive include: 142--David Horsey; Padraig Harrington ... 143--1997 four-time winner Miguel Angel Jimenez; defending champion Scott Hend.

Dustin Johnson defeated Danny Lee 2 and 1 in Sunday singles at the Presidents Cup.

In what was a quietly strong week for DJ -- he went 3-1-0 -- ended with some flair even though it didn't appear that he'd need it early. Johnson opened par-par-birdie at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea today to open a 3-hole margin just like that. Lee chipped away and protected with a par for the win at the par-4 fourth and a birdie-win at the par-5 seventh. Johnson would concede the par-4 11th to square, and then concede again at the par-4 14th, giving the native of South Korea his only lead of the match. However, Lee then lost 15 and 16 with bogeys before eventually conceding the match at the par-3 17th. In his Presidents Cup debut, Lee went 1-2-0. DJ's win today gave the U.S. an 11-10 lead on the big board.

Dustin Johnson whiffed during his 2011 Presidents Cup debut but heads to Incheon, Korea, for a chance at redemption this week.

DJ has a less-than-stellar track record in team competition, owning a career team record of 3-5-1 between The Presidents Cup and Ryder Cup. On the bright side, his singles record in those events is 2-1-0. He arrives off a season where he posted top 10s in 11-of-21 starts. No longer playing as the up-and-coming young pup, Johnson could use this week to establish himself as as someone the United States can count on in future team competitions.

Dustin Johnson lit up East Lake Golf Club in the finale to post a 6-under-par 34-30=64 and concluded his sixth TOUR Championship appearance at 4-under 276, currently solo fifth on the leaderboard.

After opening in 69-72-71, Johnson began the day at 2-over in solo 17th-place. On his round, he striped 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 13 greens in regulation converting on seven for a sparkling 1.538 putts per GIR. DJ played his first seven holes in birdie-less 1-over after squaring bogey at the third prior to back-to-back birdies at Nos. 8 and 9 to turn 1-under. Following the break, he added birdies at 10 and 11 for four consecutive, the former a bomb from 64'0" and the latter rolling in from 25'1". The 31-year-old added a 15-footer at the 13th, a seven-footer at the par-5 15th and an eight-footer at the 17th to complete his scoring. All told, he played his last 11 holes in 7-under to post his third top 10 of the Playoffs and 11th on the season in 21 starts. His 64 is the second-lowest loop of the week (Stenson: 63/R1) and a personal best in 24 career rounds at East Lake.

Dustin Johnson scored 1-under-par 34-35=69 in today's opening round of the TOUR Championship.

Back at East Lake after skipping the Playoffs entirely last year, DJ picked up where he left off a solo fifth in 2013, finishing that edition with a 69. In today's effort, he landed 14 greens in regulation and circled four birdies, the most notable from 36'5" at the par-4 third hole and 17'10" at the par-4 seventh. Johnson scrambled for par just once on the other four holes, settling for three bogeys, but he checked up just four strokes off the clubhouse lead.
