Very few have done what Tiger has not. Way to go, DJ!
Although Tiger Woods has won more WGC events than any other player – 18, to be exact – he didn’t win the HSBC Champions in either of his two starts. Johnson, meanwhile, has won the HSBC, back in 2013. He also won the Bridgestone Invitational twice. Earlier this month, he won the Mexico Championship.
And on Sunday, he became the first player to complete the WGC career slam, winning the Dell Technologies Match Play for the first time.
“Pretty awesome,” said Johnson after his dominant week, in which he played 112 holes and never trailed after any of them. “Definitely kind of cool to be the first one to win all four. These are the biggest events besides the majors, with the best golfers in the world.”
While Dustin can’t match Tiger’s success rate at the WGCs – Tiger has won 18 of his 44 WGC starts, a 41 percent win ratio, while Dustin has won five of 29 starts, a 17 percent clip – Johnson has the second most WGC wins of anybody other than Tiger.
But though Johnson – who also moved into No. 1 in FedExCup points with Sunday’s win — is the first to complete the WGC slam, he doesn’t expect to be the last.
“I feel like there will be some more to do it,” he said. “But I’m very, very pleased with it.”
