Mexico City – Dustin Johnson put the switch on cruise control and dusted the best players in the world at the WGC Mexico Championship. Johnson’s final round 66 at Club de Golf Chapultepec was good enough for a 21 under par total and a five stroke victory over fellow Jupiter resident Rory McIlroy (who shot 67 on Sunday for a score of 16 under par).
Johnson’s 20th career PGA Tour victory marks 12 consecutive years with a win, the longest active streak in golf. It was also DJ’s second win in the event since it moved to Mexico (he also won in 2017).
“I’m definitely very proud of myself for that,” Johnson said. “It’s a big accomplishment, it’s tough enough to get one win out here and to win every year I’ve been on Tour is, yeah – it’s something that I work hard on and I want to do. I want to keep it going as long as I can, but it’s been a lot of hard work and it’s paying off right now.”
The win moves Johnson to 8th in the Fedex Cup standings and just fractions of a point behind Justin Rose in the Official World Golf Ranking.
Paul Casey, Ian Poulter and Kiradech Aphibarnrat finished tied for third 10 shots back at -11.
