Stop me if you’ve listened this before, though Dustin Johnson rocketed adult a ATT Byron Nelson leaderboard on Friday with his second uninterrupted 67 during a TPC Four Seasons course. Johnson done 4 birdies and only one spook to get to 6 underneath on a week and tie adult a organisation of golfers including Ben An and Cameron Tringale during a time he finished.
Johnson has 5 tip 20s here during this eventuality in 7 appearances and hasn’t finished outward a tip 12 in any contest given he played Torrey Pines during a Farmers Insurance Open in January. His deteriorate has been one vast opening after another. we mean, only demeanour during this!
Johnson is heading a margin in pushing stretch by dual rounds and is tip 20 in strokes gained putting. A lethal multiple for those chasing him.
“I felt like we did all flattering well,” pronounced Johnson, who is looking for his fourth win in his final 6 starts.”Never unequivocally got in difficulty and even on final hole (a bogey) we strike a good tee shot, strike a good second shot, only a breeze switched and came behind in my face instead of help. So we came adult only short.”
The feverishness has been thick and a breeze utterance in Dallas, though Johnson seems flattering unfazed by it all, creation only 3 bogeys in his initial 36 holes. His pornographic turn moody and ability to control his brief manacles assistance lessen a wind. He’s also removing improved during avoiding a large number.
The 67 was Johnson’s 14th (!) true turn during standard or improved during a Nelson, and 13 of those have been underneath par. It’s a place he feels utterly comfortable.
“I only like a course,” Johnson said. “You expostulate it straight, strike it in a fairway, we can conflict a golf course. But we like it ever given we came here, a approach it sets adult off a tees, a greens, we like a greens. we feel like we have a good feel on a greens, we can review a greens unequivocally good so yeah, we only like a golf course.”
After descending down a set of stairs during a Masters, Johnson has clearly picked adult where he left off pre-back injury. He finished T2 during a Wells Fargo Championship and a career-best T12 during The Players Championship. Still, he’s not totally anxious with where he’s at.
“The diversion is still not utterly as pointy as it was heading into Augusta, though it’s removing there, it’s removing close,” Johnson said.
“There’s no issues there (with a back),” he added. “Just need to keep practicing to get back. we had to take roughly we consider 4 weeks off really, didn’t use or nothing. Takes a small time to get behind into a form we was in heading into a Masters and it’s removing there. I’m saying signs of it. Still got to do some work to get behind there.”
D.J. in a hunt with room to improve? That’s a frightful tender for everybody else.
