CALL ME DERELICT in my Armchair duties, but I didn’t watch the Turning Stone Resort Championship. OK, I saw a few highlights and a tiny bit of Golf Channel replay coverage. That’s it.
I did know that Jeff Overton was leading after two rounds. I was rooting for Overton –- from a distance. But Dustin Johnson? I admit that I’d never heard of him.
Most of the other 10 “J’s” on the PGA Tour –- Fredrik Jacobson, Lee Janzen, Brandt Jobe, Richard Johnson (there are two Richard Johnsons, by the way), Zach Johnson and Steve Jones –- are players I know of.
If you go to the personal page of Dustin Johnson at PGATour.com, you’ll see a headshot photo and a lot of white space. Zilch, in other words. Who is this guy?
Answer: The winner of the Turning Stone Resort Championship. No. 41 on the money list. A long hitter.
Dustin will be hanging on to that tour card, thank you very much.
