Dustin Johnson Wins 2018 Canadian Open; Third Victory of the Season

(From CBS News)

Top-ranked Dustin Johnson pulled away Sunday in the RBC Canadian Open for his third victory of the season and 19th on the PGA Tour.

Tied for third-round lead with Kevin Tway, Byeong Hun An and Whee Kim, Johnson shot a 6-under 66 for a three-stroke victory over Kim and An. Johnson finished at 23-under 265, winning at Glen Abbey after finishing second in 2013 and 2016 — and a week after missing the cut in the British Open.

“Even after the missed cut last week, I felt like I was hitting it fine,” Johnson said. “I just did not score very well at Carnoustie at all. I didn’t putt good. I just scored really badly. But I felt like I hit the ball plenty good enough to be under par after two days, and I was 5 over or something. It was just bad scoring.”

It fell into place at Glen Abbey, the Jack Nicklaus-designed course slated for redevelopment.

“I needed to work on the putter though, which I did,” Johnson said. “Started rolling the putter a lot better here this week. Really, really hit the ball well all four days.”
