Dustin Johnson Puts Himself Back Into the Conversation for World’s Best Golfer

Dustin Johnson had his 20th win at the WGC-Mexico Championship and absolutely dominated winning by five strokes (-21 overall) over Rory McIlroy, followed by three players who tied for third were five back of McIlroy. SI’s Daniel Rapaport to whether Johnson has actually been the best golfer in the world since Tiger Woods’ peak.

This weekend was “probably the most dominant performance we’ve seen this year,” Rapaport says, “He’s now got 20 wins before turning 35…only the fifth player in the last 50 years to do that.”

But is he the best in the world? “I think the only thing that’s holding Dustin Johnson back from being considered the best player from this post-Tiger generation is the lack of majors,” Rapaport explains. Johnson is already Hall of Fame material but “needs a couple more majors to fallout his resume.”
