Dustin Johnson Makes His Day at Pebble Beach

By Jeff Skinner

Dustin Johnson’s day didn’t start off too well as he opened with a bogey but it ended up fine with Dirty Harry making his day as Clint Eastwood handed him the crystal trophy for his second consecutive AT&T Pro-Am victory.  Johnson shot an unremarkable 74 but made a clutch birdie when he needed to.  Tied with David Duval and J.B. Holmes who were already in the clubhouse, Johnson played his most important shot of the day from the 18th bunker. Sitting in the bunker in front of the 18th in two shots he needed to get it up and down from the sand.  Johnson steadied himself and put the ball to three and a half feet.  His birdie putt sent Holmes and Duval home in second place and gave Johnson his third PGA victory of his career.

Johnson joins Sean O’Hair as the only American player under thirty with three PGA Tour wins.  He thinks he can keep getting better and continue winning,” As long as I keep playing the way I’m playing, I don’t think there’s anything that I can’t do. It’s all up to me. You know, I’ve got to keep working hard and keep practicing hard, and, you know, good things will come.”
