Dustin Johnson reclaims #1 in the world!

With the top field at the Fed Ex St. Jude classic averaging -6 to -9 with names such as Brandt Snedeker, Phil Mickelson and J.B. Holmes in the mix, Dustin Johnson easily won the tournament finishing -19. Only one player was in between DJ and the field, Andrew Putnam with a -13.

Not only did Dustin win the St. Judes, he also reclaimed the number 1 golfer status world after Justin Thomas pushed DJ to 2nd. just 4 weeks ago. He is also hanging out with the top businessmen in the world, Eric and Donald Trump Jr., in a ribbon cutting event for a new clubhouse at Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point.

Johnson had a phenomenal week finishing; 67, 63, 65, 66. He had par 4 eagle and holed one from standing in the water as well.

Moving into the U.S. Open at Shinnecock, the field is tough and many hungry souls are seeking a victory. There has been a thin line established from U.S. Open tournaments concerning the difficulty status vs. circus status. If you have ever played golf competitively, you have experienced several issues at particular courses wherein the level of difficulty has been surpassed to an atmosphere of circus golf. When this happens, it seems to leave a good shot the victim of luck as opposed to good play. I have played courses such as these competitively. It does not necessarily give anyone an advantage over another, but it does have the capability to eliminate a sound shot from solid play, which in return punishes good play, when a player has been practicing for those certain situations.

“I think it’s a very difficult job to find the line of testing the best players to the greatest degree and then making it carnival golf,” Phil Mickelson said during his Monday press conference, adding that he thinks skill, rather than luck, will be rewarded at this year’s competition. Phil is completely correct, because there have been instances when skill was punished and all you had to rely on was luck to pull you through to victory.

All in all, this is going to be an interesting and competitive U.S. Open. If you do not have the long ball off the tee, BEWARE, because this year a long tee shot is essential.
