Dustin Johnson has established himself as one of the PGA Tour's most consistent performers, the consequence of a strong driving game that is not only long but possesses huge carry.
US Open victory
Johnson worked hard on his wedge game and continued to make steady progress in the rankings as well as the money lists as the 2016 season got underway, yet the lack of a Major triumph continued to rankle heading into June's US Open at Oakmont Country Club.
This saw him move up to third in the world rankings and he finished the season as the leading money winner on the PGA Tour. He won the Arnold Palmer and Byron Nelson awards, the Vardon Trophy, and was named both the PGA Player of the Year and PGA Tour Player of the Year for 2016.
Becoming world number one
Lighting up 2020
In September 2021, Dustin Johnson became the first American to secure five points at a Ryder Cup since Larry Nelson in 1979 when Team USA triumphed over Team Europe at Whistling Straits. He formed a formidable partnership with Collin Morikawa as they won three matches together.
