Dustin Johnson reaches world no. 4
August 29, 2011

Dustin Johnson shot a six-under-par 65 to claim his first PGA Tour title of the year at The Barclays in an event shortened to 54 holes due to Hurricane Irene. The 27-year-old from South Carolina finished 19 under over three rounds in New Jersey, two shots ahead of defending champion and compatriot Matt Kuchar who had a final round of 68, with Brandt Snedeker and Vijay Singh a shot further back in a tie for third. Johnson climbs to a career-high world no. 4, up 5 places, and Kuchar also climbs 5 places into 7th, with Snedeker up 12 at 39th and Singh up 13 at 53rd.

Thomas Bjorn won the Johnnie Walker Championship on the European Tour after a five-way playoff with Mark Foster, Bernd Wiesberger, George Coetzee and Pablo Larrazabal (Spa). It was the first five man playoff on the Tour for 19 years and Bjorn climbs 11 places to world no. 59.
