ABOUT DUSTIN JOHNSON

Everyone knows Dustin Johnson is the #1 Player in the World, 16-time winner on the PGA Tour, and one of the longest hitters in the game. What most people aren’t as familiar with is DJ’s commitment to junior golf.

Through the Dustin Johnson Foundation, which is headquartered in Myrtle Dustin_Johnson_World_Junior2Beach, Johnson has donated more than $250,000 to junior golf, sponsoring numerous events throughout the state and helping cover entry costs for kids who can’t afford to do so.

The Dustin Johnson World Junior Golf Championship is the next step in DJ’s commitment to providing opportunities for youth golfers.

A South Carolina native, Johnson attended nearby Coastal Carolina University and he grew into one of the world’s best players living in Myrtle Beach. He has considered TPC Myrtle Beach his home course and displayed trophies he won on Tour there.

With a gunslinger’s game and one of the most effortless swings in the world, Johnson has emerged as one of golf’s biggest stars. He is the first player since Tiger Woods to win in each of his first nine years on Tour, including his first major at the 2016 U.S. Open at Oakmont.

Phillips entered the final round with a one-stroke lead and left little doubt about who the best player in the boys field was this weekend, besting second place finisher Teddy Tetak by six strokes. Phillips birdied the par 4 second hole and was never seriously challenged.

After playing the front nine in even par, he birdied the 11th, 12th and 14th holes, making the event’s final holes a coronation for the University of Georgia verbal commitment. Phillips shot a one-under 71 Sunday and finished the event at 5-under.
