Dustin Johnson is back in the winner’s circle dominating the Canadian Open and winning his third title of the season.
He started Sunday in a four-way tie for the lead and in the final group, Johnson fired a six-under-par 66 and his 23-under total left playing partner Byeong Hun An (69) and Whee Kim (69) in his wake at 20 under.
“Yeah, it was definitely a very good win. I’m very proud of the way I played today,” Johnson said. “I knew I was going to have to go out and play really well. There were a lot of guys, a lot of really good players right around the lead, within a couple shots of the lead.”
“It’s a big event for Canada,” Johnson said. “It’s a big event for me. Every win is very special, but this one is definitely a little bit more special.”
Dustin Johnson is now the first player since Tiger Woods in 2009 to win at least three times in three consecutive seasons and has won 10 of his 19 career titles in that span, including his lone major victory at the 2016 U.S. Open. He is now tied for 38th place on the PGA Tour’s all-time victory list with Ben Crenshaw, Ernie Els, Doug Ford, Hubert Green, Tom Kite and Bill Mehlhorn.
