There is more than one way to win a golf tournament, Ways to Win will break down how the winner did it each week.
Always the bridesmaid and never the bride…
After several near misses, Dustin Johnson finally broke through and won at Riviera in dominant fashion. Having to wait out the rain and play 36 holes on Sunday, DJ gave early notice to the field that he wasn’t backing up. Incredible play with just one bogey in his first 62 holes, coasting to a 5 stroke victory the rest of the way.
We all know Dustin can bomb it… but what did he do to dominate the field this week?
Dustin Johnson makes his living bombing it off the tee as he leads the PGA Tour in Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee. However, his putting has seen dramatic improvement over the last several years.
This week is a perfect example of what happens when an elite driver like DJ can get hot with the flatstick. To put his putting performance in perspective, DJ gained 5 strokes on the field above his 2017 average with the putter.
Turning a weakness into a strength without compromising existing strengths is no easy task, but its the difference that has vaulted DJ into the top world ranking and allowed him to turn in the second best performance on the PGA Tour this year.
