Dustin Johnson drives home point he's the man to beat

The world No 1 was already running away with the Sentry Tournament of Champions title when he arrived on the 12th tee, and he was incredibly close to making one of the longest aces ever recorded.

"This week was better than I thought", Matsuyama said. The one at Whistling Straits later in the year with the controversial ruling?

"Golf is so amusing, it really doesn't matter what you did yesterday. You can only control what you're going to do". About his rocket shot Johnson said: "I knew it was on a good line".

Besides the U.S. Open, in 2016 Johnson won the WGC-Bridgestone (a World Golf Championship event) and the BMW Championship, part of the Tour's FedEx Cup playoffs.

"But if I can stay focused just on what I'm supposed to be doing, the shot I want to hit, and the next shot that I'm going to hit, then that's how I have success".

Well, the PGA Tour's Twitter account on Monday posted a video of a number of near-hits that other players - from the legendary Nick Taylor to two-time major champion Zach Johnson - have enjoyed over the past several years. Only Tiger Woods, with 18 wins, has more tournament victories in that time. So, um, better luck next time, DJ.

"It's a good start if I want to do it". A runner-up to DJ in the matchplay a year ago, Rahm confirmed that he is a talent that's here to stay on the PGA Tour. I'm very proud of being able to do that.

Johnson says when he's at his best he feels "unbeatable" and "would welcome any comers". "I know exactly where I want it to come down out of the air, and it did". "More for myself and confidence, after what happened in Shanghai, I wanted to prove to myself that I still. that ain't going to happen again". Even if he probably forgets where it is.
