Johnson shot a solid second round of 70 on Friday in Augusta, GA.
The world number 1 (Johnson) and world number 3 (Thomas) will most likely never be compared under the same spot light but both share Major Titles and the top of the leaderboard at the 2020 Masters.
Today, Thomas says he just needed to learn where to hit the ball, when to attack the flag, and that he didn’t need to do anything extra ordinary. He has also stated that he no longer has the fear factor involved.
Ryder and Presidents Cup teammate Dustin Johnson got off to a very slower start at Augusta. He finished T30 in his rookie year in 2009, then finished further down the list with T38s in 2010 and 2011. It wasn’t until Johnson put in hours and hours of work with his wedge game, and dialed in his putting, did he begin to go on outstanding stretches of golf where he looks untouchable at times.
Dustin Johnson has 4 top 10 finishes in the Masters in the last four years including last years runner-up to Tiger Woods. DJ is feeling posed and confident to make another real run at his first chance to slip on the green jacket.
Many golf experts have predicted that Johnson would be in the driver seat the whole way long before the start. Johnson comes into the week with 3 wins including a WGC Title and the world’s number one spot.
“It’s been a long day,” he said, when asked to name his best shot Friday. “I mean, both the shots I hit on 12 today, I like. I made birdie both times. So I take that any day of the week.”
