Dustin Johnson Won 2018 RBC Canadian Open Golf Title

The World No.1 bounced back from his first missed cut of the year at The Open last week with a three-shot victory at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ontario – his 19th win on the PGA Tour.

Johnson, who posted a final round six-under 66 to get to 23-under, finished three shots clear of South Korean pair Whee Kim and Byeong Hun An on his way to becoming the second three-time winner this season (Bubba Watson is the other). Johnson then birdied his final hole of the day, hitting the par-five 18th in two and needing just two putts to secure his win.

Bradley finished in fourth behind Kim and Byeong Hun, while Mexico’s Abraham Ancer (67) took fifth place on 17 under and England’s Tommy Fleetwood put on another impressive showing to share sixth place with Danny Lee after a final round 67. With his win, Johnson remains on top of the FedExCup standings – as well as becoming the first player since Tiger Woods to win three or more events in three consecutive years (Woods did it in 2009).

Johnson began the day in a four-way tie for the lead, and was dominant from the outset, making back to back birdies on his opening two holes to move ahead of the field. He converted a 12-foot birdie at the eighth to increase his lead to three shots, before a weather delay stopped play for almost two hours. Once play resumed, Johnson’s lead quickly reduced to two after both An and Whee made birdies, his lead remaining at that number after following a birdie on 11 with a dropped shot on 12.
