Dustin Johnson Deserves Best Golfer In The World Belt
If you’re not watching PGA Tour golf over the last two months, what the hell have you been doing? Sure, I haven’t written much about it thus far, but that should be changing as we head into summer. It might not be recaps or previews, rather, look at topics going through the golf world. Right now, Dustin Johnson is the hotness. He’s been the hotness for the last two years. Johnson is the best golfer in the world, and it’s not even close. But why is the general public obsessed with Jordan Spieth or Rory McIlroy versus DJ? That question remains to be unseen.
Casual fans know of Johnson, but the reasons might not be his golf game. Paulina Gretzky is his red-hot fiance who is known for her Instagram game. He also had an issue with cocaine that sidelined him for a year. These are stupid reasons to know an athlete especially at the level DJ is golfing currently. He’s out of his mind. Every tournament he’s in, it’s a surprise if he doesn’t finish in the top 10. Johnson had a few hiccups over the past, but since June, he’s been the fucking man and no one is close to him in the golf world.
Dustin Johnson, since June 19, 2016:
17 worldwide starts
5 PGA Tour wins
2 WGC titles
1 FedEx playoff win

Dustin Johnson deserves your attention. He’s the must-see player right now in what’s probably the best group of golfers we’ve seen in quite some time. Spieth and McIlroy are more known commodities, but the fact is Johnson became a stone cold killer on the course. There’s no one scarier to see climb up a leaderboard. As some know, I play DraftKings on a weekly basis for golf and faded Johnson with the belief that he was too long for this altitude-driven course which obviously didn’t pan out for me. Even when the World’s number one faltered with back-to-back bogies letting Jon Rahm and others contend for the title, Johnson showed the steady attitude down the final nine for yet another victory.
Rory and Spieth are still very good golfers, but Johnson is the man. He has the title belt, and it’s going to take a hell of an effort for someone to take it from DJ.
