– DUSTIN JOHNSON AFTER HIS HYUNDAI T OF C VICTORY


2013 HIGHLIGHTS: After heavy winds and unusually hectic weather, Johnson gained a four-stroke victory at the 54-hole Hyundai Tournament of Champions during a rare Monday start-Tuesday finish event. With the victory, he became the first player since Tiger Woods (1996-2001) to win in six consecutive years straight out of college (2008-13), and he trails only Phil Mickelson (10)


for the


current streak of consecutive years with a victory. He posted the low round of the day, a 7-under 65, in the final round of the Shell Houston Open to claim a T4. At the Masters, he was one back after a first-round 67 and finished T13.


DID YOU KNOW: Basketball is in his family blood. His grandfather, Art Whisnant, was an all-ACC performer


at South Carolina.


Younger brother Austin played at Charleston Southern. Dustin can dunk from a flat-footed stance.
