“Just to be mentioned in the same sentence, I’m very pleased with that.
DJ shot four rounds of 68 or lower to earn him the 19th PGA Tour victory of his career. A five-shot deficit after the first round was erased following second and third round scores of 66 and 65, respectively. Johnson slammed the door with a 6-under par 66 on Sunday to defeat Beyong Hun An and Whee Kim by three strokes.
