With a score of +6 after 36 holes, Dustin Johnson had to leave the 103rd major period organized by the Professional Golf Association of America (PGAA) on Kiawah Island, South Carolina.

In the opening leg of May 20, Johnson scored +4 on the Ocean par72 battlefield. The next day, he birdie on the first hole – hole 10, eagle-bogey-birdie in the last three holes but still couldn’t get tickets for the weekend. Because before this impressive ending, the American golfer still has three bogeys, a double bogey, and the elimination line at +5.

Yesterday, Johnson reached 302.8 yards in two holes recognized by the Organizing Committee for the average distance in the first hole. The whole match, he hit 9 of the 14 fairways but got on the green according to the standard of only eight holes.

Before the PGA Championship, Johnson failed to break through at the Masters in April, when he defended the title. With this individual performance, the peak golf village in the past 24 years recorded the first time the reigning world number one was eliminated in two consecutive majors. Before Johnson was the “Great White Shark” Greg Norman at the Masters and US Open in 1997. And since the world professional golf ranking (OWGR) was born – 1986 until now, only they have met this sad feat.

In fact, Norman repeatedly missed two majors in 1988. That year, he was at the top of the world table, having to miss the US Open because of a hand injury after escaping the rough in the second round. This incident left him out of The Open Championship the following month.

And Johnson, through the last seven PGA Tour events, has never finished in the top 10. Early next week, he will still top the world rankings, as Justin Thomas finished second OWGR also did not break out in the PGA Championship. Before the tournament, Johnson could lose his place if he finished outside the top 5 and Thomas won.

Johnson was born in 1984, won two majors – US Open 2016 and Masters 2020 in 24 PGA Tour championships. He has accumulated 130 weeks at the top of OWGR, ranking third in terms of time in office. On this front, Tiger Woods holds the record for 683 weeks and Norman is second with 331 weeks.
