Every facet of Dustin Johnson’s game has been “on” in 2017. We know about his driving proficiency, we’ve heard about his improved wedge play and his iron game has remained elite throughout. Another big change in DJ’s ascent has been his work on the greens. Known as a bit ham-handed on and around the greens in recent years, DJ has cleaned up his short game and found a flatstick that works. Johnson led the field last week in Austin with 544 feet of putts made, and he ranks a respectable 31st in strokes gained: putting.
