How Many Major Championships Has Dustin Johnson Won?
Dustin Johnson turned pro in 2007. DJ has won a trophy every year since turning pro, except in 2014, where he earned six top 10 and four top-5 finishes. DJ had a dream run last year where he went onto win four tournaments. He has a total of 24 PGA Tour wins and is looking to add a few more to his cabinet.
Johnson is second only behind Tiger Woods when it comes to World Golf Championship victories with six wins. But a player is always measured by the number of major championship titles he wins in his career. So let us look at how many majors has Dustin Johnson won.
How many major championship titles has Dustin Johnson won?
Dustin Johnson has won two major championship titles in his career so far. He broke the drought of majors nine years after he turned pro as he won the U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club in 2016. Johnson outlasted Jim Furyk, Shane Lowry, and Scott Piercy to win at 4-under for his 10th title as a pro.
After this win, there was a quiet period of around four years again, where he didn’t win a major. However, he was a regular winner at non-major tournaments. But things fell in line for Dustin when golf made a comeback after the pandemic. He was driving the ball exceptionally, and his iron game just seemed impeccable, along with his putting.
His brother and caddie Austin Johnson assisted him in every manner, especially in reading the greens. And finally, he won the most prestigious tournament in golf, “The Masters“. He completely overwhelmed the course and shot a record-breaking -20 to win his second major championship title.
But even though he has two major titles to his name, DJ is still an underachiever. With the talent that he has, DJ should have already won three-four majors. And with his current form, it is looking difficult for DJ to get his hands on the third major anytime soon.
Currently, Dustin Johnson is playing in The Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands and has had a strenuous start so far.
