SC Golf Honors Dustin Johnson

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Dustin from your friends at SC Golf (scgolf.info)!

Dustin Johnson was born in Columbia, South Carolina and he played collegiate golf at Coastal Carolina University near Myrtle Beach, SC. As an amateur, he won the Monroe Invitational and the Northeast Amateur in 2007 and played on the winning 2007 Walker Cup and Palmer Cup teams.

Johnson turned professional in 2007 and earned his 2008 PGA Tour card by finishing in a tie for 14th place in the 2007 qualifying school.

Johnson won his first PGA Tour event, the Turning Stone Resort Championship in October 2008. Four months later, he won his second event at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, a tournament that was shortened to 54 holes when the final round was cancelled due to strong winds and heavy rain, leaving Johnson the winner by four strokes over Mike Weir and five strokes over second round leader Retief Goosen, who shot a third round 2 over par 74. Johnson finished the 2009 season ranked 15th on the PGA Tour money list.

In February 2010, Johnson birdied the final hole to defeat former world number one David Duval and 2 time PGA Tour winner J.B. Holmes to successfully defend his AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am title.

Recently, Johnson led the 2010 U.S. Open by three strokes over Graeme McDowell after the third round, but shot 82 in the final round and dropped into a tie for eighth. Unfortunately, for DJ and SC Golf (scgolf.info) McDowell won the tournament for his first win in a Major.

Fun fact about Dustin Johnson:

He ranks 1st in Eagles (Holes per) on the PGA TOUR to date.
