Golf Australia Express : GA Express 201
WORDS BY ADRIAN BALLANTYNE T HE only thing more terrifying than an in-form Dustin Johnson is an in-form Dustin Johnson with nine years worth of weight lifted off his shoulders. After his second consecutive PGA Tour victory and having popped his major cherry last month, consider those shoulders officially unburdened. And consider the rest of the field officially on notice for the Open Championship at Royal Troon. While everyone else struggled to make any tangible headway on the notoriously difficult Firestone Country Club layout, Johnson calmly made molehills out of mountains with a pair of weekend 66s that took him past everyone in the field, including a faltering Jason Day. Unshackled from his major demons after triumphing at the US Open a fortnight ago, Johnson gave new meaning to the term “laidback” as he produced a display of power and precision hitting rarely seen since Tiger Woods’ halcyon days. Johnson was an almost unheard of 6.05 strokes better than the field average in ‘strokes gained: off-the-tee’ over the four days at Firestone (Rory McIlroy leads that statistic this season, with 1.227 strokes gained per round).
