Dustin Johnson is known as an American professional golfer. He is most famous for becoming ranked number one in February 2017.

Background and Age

Dustin Hunter Johnson was born on June 22, 1984 in Columbia, SC. Dustin's father, Scott who is a former golf pro took his child, Jonhson to the range at six years old. At school, Johnson engaged in his deep rooted enthusiasm for playing golf. He recorded victories as a beginner golf player which saw him become the first player after Tiger Wood to win at least one title within the first seven seasons after leaving college.

Career and Net Worth

Dustin Johnson went pro in 2007. He earned his place in the 2008 PGA tour, toward the finish of his first season he won the Turning Stone Resort Championship. Johnson contended in the 2011 Open Championship, which saw him record his best completion that year.

In June 2020, the final round of the 2020 Travelers Championship had almost everything before finally crowning Dustin Johnson as the winner. Dustin won despite the fact that at various points in Round 4, hit a ball beyond the field of play and played one with his socks and shoes off while remaining in the water. He proceeded to win by one stroke over Kevin Streelman in the wake of posting a 3-under 67.

After the Players Championship was dropped toward the start of March, fans didn't see D.J. for more than two months. Playing close by Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, and Matthew Wolff in a foundation occasion at Seminole Golf Club, the expression "rust" doesn't start to depict how D.J. was playing.

That persisted into his first official event back half a month later at the Charles Schwab Challenge where he missed the cut subsequent to shooting 71-71. His next outing was somewhat better as he ripped at his way toward the head of the leaderboard toward the end of the week at Harbor Town.

Even the Travelers Championship started out harsh for Johnson, who opened the occasion T79 in spite of a first-cycle 69 as the whole field went low. No one plays out of a slump like D.J. His triumph came in the wake of starting in the most minimal round situation for a victor on the PGA Tour since 1983.

Instead of getting enveloped with his own head about an unremarkable recent 15 months, he brought about his 21st career win at TPC River Highlands.

Marriage, Wife, and Kids

Dustin Johnson got engaged to his model and singer sweetheart, Paulina Gretzky in August 2013. They have two children named Tatum Gretzky Johnson and River Jones Johnson.
