Johnson Beats the Rain and the Field at Barclays

 

Dustin Johnson hits his tee shot on the 18th hole during the second round of The Barclays golf tournament.

 

 

Dustin Johnson beat the rain and everyone else Saturday at The Barclays to win the opening FedEx Cup playoff event.

Johnson shot a 29 on the front nine of rain-softened Plainfield for the second straight day. He closed with a 6-under 65 for a two-shot win over Matt Kuchar.


The Barclays was reduced to 54 holes because of Hurricane Irene. If the third round could not be finished Saturday, then it would have reverted to a 36-hole event and Kuchar would have been declared the winner.

Kuchar had a one-shot lead going into the round, but he couldn't hold up against the power and putting of Johnson. Kuchar shot a 68.

Johnson, with his fifth career win, goes to No. 4 in the world.
