Johnson again finding his stride at season’s end on the PGA Tour


SHARE THIS STORY

With a Ryder Cup captain's pick on the line this week at the Deutsche Bank Championship, Dustin Johnson is in position to impress Davis Love III at TPC Boston.

It might seem Johnson is simply stepping up at the right time. Perhaps, but Johnson is just doing what he does best: thriving at the end of the season.



Through two rounds of the Labor Day stop and the second leg of the FedEx Cup playoffs, Johnson is 7 under par, trails Rory McIlroy by five shots heading into the third round and is playing best of the eight hopefuls for four captain's picks.

Coming off a T-3 finish last week at The Barclays, Johnson is again showing he knows how to end the season in style.

Of Johnson's 27 top-10 finishes in five seasons on the PGA Tour, eight of them have come in the months of July, August or September. The only time of the year Johnson fares better is January and February, during which he has 11 top-10 finishes.

In the other seven months of the year, Johnson has eight top-10 finishes, with just one in March and April.

Steve Stricker may be Mr. September, but Johnson circles this time of the year on the calendar just the same.
