Bad memory makes Dustin Johnson a golf king

Irmo's Dustin Johnson opens 2018 with PGA Tournament victory Dustin Johnson Goes Full Happy Gilmore, Almost Hits Hole-In-One On Par Four
Betsy Taylor | 10 January, 2018, 02:04

In a decade-long PGA Tour career, Johnson has won at least one tournament every year since his rookie season.

In a field that featured the top five players in the world, Johnson made a strong opening statement that the No. 1 ranking he has held for almost a year might be hard to take away.

A near ace on a 433-yard par 4.

But Johnson had put himself out of reach of all pursuers in the elite 34-player event for 2017 tournament winners.

The 2013 champion nearly hit the hole with his drive at the sixth in round three, but that was a mere 382 yards away and his effort at the 12th in the final round was a full 50 yards longer.

"I try to forget everything, " he said. Johnson has a short memory, and he never thought about China until it was mentioned to him on Saturday.

"I came out today with a lot of focus and I knew I wanted to play really well and not even".

"I got off to a great start, and I want to keep it going, " Johnson said.

Dustin Johnson produced an early contender for the best drive of 2018 as he came within six inches of making a hole-in-one albatross. So, for me, it's just all about pushing forward, and you can't change anything that happened in the past.

"Not very long, I don't think".

"I want a lot more wins". Jordan Spieth also won by eight shots in 2016.

"It's no easy task, " said Rahm, who lost to Johnson in the final of Match Play a year ago. "First I want to get to 20, then 30 and once there 40", he added.

Tigers Woods confirmed his first outing of the year will be at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in a fortnight followed by the Genesis Open at Riviera three weeks after that, where he will be joined by Rory McIlroy, making his debut at Pacific Palisades.

Johnson went 66-65 on the weekend. "Everything is going in the right direction".
