He reduced the golf course to a pitch-and-putt with power that got everyone's attention. That was John Daly at Crooked Stick in 1991 when he followed his caddie's instructions — “Kill it!” — on his way to winning the PGA Championship. It was Tiger Woods at Augusta National in 1997,...

Column: Johnson back to winning now after brief knee concern

Jun. 30, 2020 4:02 PM EDT

It only looks as though Dustin Johnson barely has a pulse on the golf course. One moment made him a little nervous. It wasn't the tee shot that rolled toward the railroad tracks and barely crossed the out-of-bounds line, right after he had taken a two-shot lead in the final round of the Travelers Championship. It...
