The two-time major champion picked up where he left off a few weeks ago in Boston
At LIV Golf Chicago on Friday,
Dustin Johnson picked up where he left off a few weeks ago at LIV Golf Boston, where he won his first title. Shooting an opening round of 63, D.J. leads
Cam Smith by three shots going into Saturday's 2nd round. He also helped his team, the 4 Aces, to a minus-11 total, putting him in line for the team's fourth straight victory.
Johnson, who started on the first hole Thursday, went 30 and missed just one or two shots in five hours of play in the first round. With a chance of 59 behind,
he eventually stumbled a bit but was still pleased with his performance despite playing the final six holes in just 1 under par.
"I hit it really close. I didn't have a lot of long putts, but I hit a lot of putts under 10 feet. I hit it really, really very good today."
When D.J. warms up, this is what it does. He tends to pull off several events in a row no matter where he plays or who he plays against.
This happened most notably in 2017 when he won three straight tournaments leading into the Masters before pulling out of the year
