On Sunday afternoon, March 5th, 2017, at 17 hours, 10 minutes and 35 seconds, the world’s No. 1 golf player Dustin Johnson won the World Golf Championship in Mexico City.
The American champion came first in front of Englishman Tommy Fleetwood, in a top 6 dominated by Europeans. For the indomitable Dustin Johnson, it was his 14th title on the PGA Tour. Two weeks after winning the Genesis Open, Dustin Johnson had dominated the world once again by winning at Chapultepec: the total score 70/66/66/68, 14 under par is a little ahead of Englishman Tommy Fleetwood.
The champion experienced an entire range of emotions during this last game in Mexico City: at first happiness, when he turned in the lead after a flawless golf: four birdies for Johnson, including two consecutive holes # 8 and # 9, followed by some doubt, with two bogeys conceded in a row on 12 and 13, the fault of wayward putting.
Johnson would then catch up with a birdie on the 15th, but Fleetwood had no intention of letting go: when the Englishman made a birdie on the 18th and glimpsed the possibility of winning the playoffs, DJ saved the game by just enough and could thus enjoy his new title. The 32-year-old American confirmed his status as world No. 1 and became the second most successful player in WGC history (4 wins), behind Tiger Woods (18 wins). “This win as the world’s No.1 has a lot of value for me. Obviously, it’s a tricky position to tackle a tournament. I had a lot of pressure on my shoulders and I managed to play well despite everything.” Johnson said. $ 1.66 million dollars was the amount hit by Dustin Johnson after his victory, which makes him the 9th ranked player in history in career earnings, with a total of $ 42,718,344.
