PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- Former Coastal Carolina men's golfer Dustin Johnson picked up his second win in last nine starts on the PGA Tour, winning the rain-shortened AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, Feb. 16. It was a clean sweep for Johnson as he teamed with partner Joe Rice to win the Pro-Am event as well. The final round was suspended Sunday because of wind and rain, and officials called the tournament when they found greens under water and a hopeless forecast.
Rain washed out the final round on Monday, as Johnson sat in the clubhouse with a four-shot lead through the first three rounds of the tournament, finishing at 15-under, four ahead of runner-up Mike Weir. Johnson started the week with 7-under 65 at Pebble Beach, followed by a 3-under at Spyglass Hill on Friday. Saturday's 65 at Poppy Hills, with birdies on all five par-5s, was the difference in the tournament.
The 24-year-old Johnson joins as the only players under 25 with two PGA Tour victories. He now moves into the top 50 in the world, qualifying him for the Accenture Match Play Championship next week and the first two majors this year -- The Masters and the U.S. Open.
