DJ Plans On Staying At The Top
Dustin Johnson solidified his status at the top of golf's world rankings, holding off a late challenge at the WGC-Mexico Championship to clinch a second successive PGA Tour victory. The American, 32, closed with a round of 68 to finish 14-under par, one shot clear of England's Tommy Fleetwood. Johnson only secured top spot from Jason Day two weeks ago, strolling to a five-shot victory at California's Genesis Open. Now he has a fourth WGC title - more than anyone other than Tiger Woods (18) - and becomes just the fifth player in history to win his first tournament as world No. 1. Johnson gave every indication that he planned on staying at the top for a while. “My first week playing as No. 1, there's obviously a little bit extra pressure, a lot of limelight on me," Johnson said after his victory. "So, to come out and win, it means a lot."
