PGA TOUR senior tour championship title – “I love to play golf, I love to coach and I love the sport.”
– Dustin Johnson said.
“But I’m a competitive person and I want to win.”
Johnson, who has been on a tear with a 2-0 record on the PGA tour and two top-10s in the FedExCup, will make his first PGA Championship start as a member of Team USA on Monday night when it takes on France at The Villages Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Fla.
Johnson, who is ranked No. 16 on the FedExcup, is coming off a third-place finish in the PBC Tour’s PGA Finals last month, where he fell to Rory McIlroy.
The victory came as Johnson was tied with McIlry for third in the field behind McIlrry and Rory McDaniel.
Johnson won the first round, then won the second, then finished second in the third.
Johnson’s win in the finals followed two weeks of back-to-back rounds at The Players Championship in Charlotte, where the US player was ranked No, 21 in the world.
Johnson said he has a plan for the first four rounds, and he expects to play to win.
“I’m really excited about the beginning of the week and just really trying to go out there and play the best I can,” Johnson said during the CBS Sports Radio interview.
“Hopefully, I can go out and get one or two top 10s and get to the top of the leaderboards.”
Johnson has a chance to add to his record of 11 career PGA Championships, a career-best.
The only other player to win 11 PGA titles was Michael Johnson in 2004, when he went 15-4-1 in his first four starts, including a third win at The Augusta National Club in Augusta, Ga.
Johnson has five career top-20 finishes at The Masters, including four wins at the tournament, including the 2016 final, which he won with a five-under 64.
He also finished fifth at the 2015 Masters.
Johnson said he hopes to add some consistency to his golf game as he looks to get back on the winning track.
“That’s the thing that’s been a big focus of my season, getting some consistency back in my game, getting to a point where I’m playing better,” Johnson added.
Johnson also took to social media after he was named to Team USA’s team.”
I think when you’re playing at a high level, you’re going to make mistakes, and that’s where I’ve definitely struggled, and I’m really looking forward to being a part of that.”
Johnson also took to social media after he was named to Team USA’s team.
Johnson’s career is not going to be easy for the United States, but he has an ace in the hole at the moment.
He said he wants to win, but if he can’t, he will be ready to move on to a new challenge in golf.
Johnson played his first round at The Presidents Cup at Augusta National in August and has been a part-time player since.
He was on the roster for the Presidents Cup, where Team USA won its first two tournaments, but that was not his team’s first tournament victory.
Johnson and McIlroys are the only two players to win three majors in a row.
Johnson is on the final year of his contract, and McDaniel is a two-time winner of the tournament.
