DJ is known for his prodigious length, but playing at 7,000-plus feet of altitude in Mexico City, it was his on-point iron game that impressed. While everyone was bombing drives — and DJ was no exception — leading the field in strokes gained: approach to the green, picking up more than eight strokes on the field, is worth proper credit.
