Dustin Johnson settled for an even-par 36-33=69 in today's final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship with his 11-under 266 aggregate good for a two-way tie for eighth place.
Johnson began the day in prime position, a five-way tie for second, and playing with overnight leader Steven Bowditch, who he trailed by two. He looked destined to add his 10th career PGA TOUR title (and second of the season) after holing-out chip-in birdies on two of his first three holes to tie Bowditch for the lead at 13-under. Johnson was living on the edge however, missing his first four greens in regulation. It caught up to him in a huge way on the par-4 eighth. He put his first tee shot out of bounds right, then hooked his second in trouble left, just as television coverage was ceasing for 30 minutes. TV or not, it resulted in a quadruple bogey-8, squashing his chances for a win at the TPC Four Seasons. To the 30-year-old's credit, he did play his last 12 in 2-under and added his seventh top 10 on the season in just 12 starts. May 31 - 7:09 PM

Dustin Johnson smoothed a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-31=62 in the third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship to post 11-under 197, assuming the early clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Johnson is in a five-way tie for second, two shots back of the leader Steven Bowditch.

Johnson began his third round at 4-under (T26) and five shots back of the 36-hole leaders. At No. 10 in the Official World Golf Ranking, DJ is the second-highest ranked player in the field after No. 2 Jordan Spieth (and after No. 8 Jason Day withdrew). Johnson is not disappointing, circling birdies at Nos. 2, 3, 5 and 6 on his outward half and on 11, 16 and 18 on his way to the house. In perhaps the most important moment of his round, he brushed in a lengthy par putt on the par-3 17th to keep his forward momentum intact. The 30-year-old is looking for his second win in 2015 after taking the title at the WGC-Cadillac Championship in March.

Dustin Johnson coasted to a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in today's opening round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

Perfect in five trips with three top 10s, DJ is an automatic investment at TPC Four Seasons. He illustrated why again today, going 4-for-14 with four birdies, including a 16-footer at the par-4 10th to begin the round. He also went 4-for-4 in scrambling but squared a bogey at the par-3 17th where he three-jacked from 49'6". He's five strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Dustin Johnson readies for soggy conditions at this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

The weather in Irving, Texas, has been less than ideal to put it lightly. The 7,166 yard track will be playing much longer this week, and that should play right into the hands of bombers like DJ. He settled for a T63 in his 2008 Byron Nelson debut, but has secured top 20s in all four trips since. Johnson should be considered an elite option in all formats this week.

Dustin Johnson registered a 2-and-1 victory over Victor Dubuisson in today's third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

It never has to be this interesting, but you never know with DJ. He was in control early, reaching 3-up by the seventh hole. Sitting 2-up through 10, he proceeded to string together three bogeys to give the Frenchman a 1-up lead after 13. Naturally, DJ rallied for three consecutive birdies to regain the 2-up advantage through 16. Throughout this activity, Dubuisson parred every hole on the back nine of TPC Harding Park, including at the par-3 17th where the match ended. The American raised his record to 2-1, so he needs Matt Jones (1-1) to defeat Charl Schwartzel (2-0) and force a three-way playoff. Dubuisson, who was last year's runner-up, settles for an 0-3 slate.
May 1 - 8:16 PM

Dustin Johnson disposed of Matt Jones 3 and 1 in the first round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

DJ was eliminated in the opener of the old format of the Match Play five out of six times. Today's point represents his first win in three editions. He countered one bogey at TPC Harding Park with four birdies and never trailed against the Aussie, who traded three birdies with three bogeys. Jones' final square ended the match at the par-3 17th hole. He'll try again on Thursday when he draws Victor Dubuisson, who played terribly today. Johnson gets Charl Schwartzel.
Apr 29 - 8:39 PM

Dustin Johnson fashioned a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 in today's opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

This was DJ's first look at TPC Louisiana since he missed the cut in his rookie season of 2008. Suffice it to say that the absence didn't matter. He hit 12 greens in regulation and circled five birdies before coming to rest three strokes off the clubhouse lead. Three of Johnson's conventional conversions measured 10-16 feet, but the highlight was a 12-yard hole-out from off the putting surface at the par-4 15th. He rolled in with some serious mojo -- a win and two T6s -- so continue to expect him to pile on.
Apr 23 - 2:08 PM

Dustin Johnson spun a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in today's final round of the 79th Masters to post 9-under 279, two strokes adrift of the 72-hole clubhouse lead.

Johnson finished in a three-way share of sixth place to secure his first top 10 in six tries at Augusta National. It was clear early that it was going to be his day. After drilling a long-range try for birdie at the par-3 sixth, he circled a strange birdie at the par-4 seventh. After his approach seemingly came to rest on the green, it would take the slope and roll about halfway to the hole. He added four birdies, including a walk-off 3 at the 18th hole. For the week, Johnson scored bogey-free 14-under on the par 5s with three eagles, all in the second round.
Apr 12 - 6:23 PM

Dustin Johnson signed for a 1-over-par 35-38=73 after his third round of the Masters and posted 6-under 210.

So much for the value of DJ's three eagles on Friday. He hit three more greens in regulation today (12), but "settled" for three birdies on the par 5s. (He's bogey-free 12-under on the par 5s this week.) It was complemented by a mid-range conversion for a 2 on the par-3 sixth hole, but he also squared bogeys at 4, 17 and 18. However, Johnson's biggest disappointment occurred at the par-3 12th. After missing the green short, he nubbed a chip into a bunker. After blasting out, he two-putted for a double bogey. While he's locked in a five-way tie for fifth place, DJ is 10 strokes in arrears of Jordan Spieth's 54-hole lead. It seems inevitable that Johnson will extend his drought without a victory in a major to 24 starts.
Apr 11 - 7:29 PM

Dustin Johnson converted a trio of eagles en route to a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his second round of the 79th Masters.

Never before has a competitor in this tournament holed more than two eagles in a single round, so DJ stands alone in that category. In fact, it's the first time during the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season that a golfer circled three on one card. It happened just twice in 2013-14, but not at all during the 2013 season. All of Johnson's eagles dropped in on par 5s -- Nos. 2, 8 and 15. He birdied 13, which is the remaining par 5 at Augusta National Golf Club. Oh, and consider that he hit only nine greens in regulation for the day. Talk about maximizing one's opportunities. He limited the damage to an opening double bogey-4 and bogey-5s and 10 and 18. At 7-under 137, the nine-time TOUR winner sits seven strokes back of the 36-hole lead.
Apr 10 - 6:14 PM

Dustin Johnson twirled a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in his opening round of the Masters.

He grinded out the red number after sitting 2-over through four holes. DJ then collected five birdies on his next nine to cover one bogey and finish three swings in arrears of the clubhouse co-leaders. He totaled 12 greens in regulation. This is his first major since taking six months off from competition. He's 4-for-5 at Augusta National but remains in pursuit of his first top 10. If he's not at the top of the list of the best golfers without a victory in a major, he may be the most dangerous. Expect him to keep the pedal down.
Apr 9 - 3:22 PM

Dustin Johnson fired a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the final round of the Valero Texas Open to secure a top-10 finish at 2-under 286.

Johnson circled six birdies, all inside of 10 feet, to go with three bogeys on his final lap around TPC San Antonio. He was on the bad half of the draw on Thursday and Friday, playing in morning on Thursday and afternoon on Friday. His first-round 78 in the worst of the wind certainly makes one wonder what could have been if he was on the favorable side of the draw. He played the weekend in 8-under.
Mar 29 - 3:56 PM

Dustin Johnson spun a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship to secure victory in just his fifth start since returning from a six-month sabbatical.

His 9-under 279 placed him ahead of J.B. Holmes by one stroke. Johnson circled four birdies and squared just one bogey on his lap around Trump National Doral's Blue Monster Course. He pulled away on the back nine thanks to a 10'5" birdie at the par-5 10th and a 13'7" birdie on the par-3 15th. DJ led the tournament in driving distance and was second in strokes gained: tee-to-green, as length and ball-striking were a key to all of those successful this week. This was his second win in a WGC, with the other representing his last win at the HSBC Champions in 2013. It's also his ninth PGA TOUR title and extends his streak of consecutive seasons with at least one to eight. With this victory, he is exempt into the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA Championship.
Mar 8 - 6:55 PM

Dustin Johnson conjured up a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship to take the clubhouse lead at 6-under 210.

Johnson caused quite the stir at Trump National Doral's Blue Monster Course when he aced the par-3 fourth hole with a 7-iron from 207 yards. He wasn't the only one to do so, as J.B. Holmes matched the feat two groups later. The rest of DJ's round featured three birdies and two bogeys. The shortest of those birdies occurred from 16'8" and the longest from 23'11", despite missing a few attempts from closer range. Barring a major gaffe by Holmes on the par-4 18th, DJ will not hold the 54-hole lead at day's end.
Mar 7 - 5:39 PM

Dustin Johnson settled for a 1-over-par 36-37=73 in his second round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

DJ went just 1-for-6 in scrambling en route to five bogeys at Trump National Doral today. And that set included a conversion from 12'5" at the par-4 18th hole. But he also converted four birdies, including rolls of 19-and-a-half feet and 15 feet at Nos. 11 and 6, respectively. So, at 3-under 141, he's inside the top 10 on the leaderboard and in position to strike on the weekend.
