It was his debut as the new world’s number one player after winning at Riviera.
He had a lot to prove. And he did just that.
Dustin Johnson battled hard to deny the talented Jon Rahm, Tommy Fleetwood and Ross Fisher to lift the WGC-Mexico Championship.
His 3-under-par 68 gave him a one shot victory on 14-under over Fleetwood, and his 14th PGA Tour title.
“I didn’t feel I hit any bad shots there when I made those two bogeys. I knew I just had to continue to play golf,” said Johnson. “… I thought I putted well all week and I hit the ball well all week. I just played well enough because I won by one.”
The victory also meant that he becomes only the second player to win four WGC events.
Tiger Woods is the other, and he has won 18 of them.
