RSM present a statistical look back at Dustin Johnson’s stunning five-shot triumph at the WGC-Mexico Championship.
Johnson lifted his seventh European Tour title in Mexico, in his 87th appearance on the Tour.
After winning the Saudi International powered by SBIA earlier this month, Johnson also became the first player to win in consecutive starts since Justin Rose two years ago.
The 34 year old’s victory was also the 230th on the European Tour by an American, and the fifth this season following Kurt Kitayama (Afrasia Bank Mauritius Open), David Lipsky (Alfred Dunhill Championship), Bryson DeChambeau (Omega Dubai Desert Classic) and Johnson’s own triumph in Saudi Arabia.
Johnson – who is the only player to win all four World Golf Championships – continued to thrive at Chapultepec Golf Club, where he has now won twice (2017 and 2019). The American can now boast 11 consecutive rounds in the 60s there.
After winning in Mexico, Johnson now has six WGC titles to his name. While he is still far behind Tiger Woods – who has won 18 World Golf Championships – Johnson is still way ahead of everyone else…
Johnson excelled in almost every facet of his game in Mexico City, to such an extent that his 72-hole total of 263 was two strokes shy of the tournament record, which was set by Woods in 2006 – 261.
Johnson’s five-stroke winning margin is also the second-largest in the tournament’s history – Woods also holds that record after he won by an even more commanding eight shots in 2006.
