So Dustin Johnson won the BMW Championship,
00:03
giving him three wins in his last eight PGA Tour starts.
00:07
That includes a Major Championship,
00:09
a World Golf Championship,
00:11
and now a FedEx Cup Playoff event.
00:14
These wins are getting such old hat
00:15
that Paulina Gretzky didn't even post anything
00:17
on social media.
00:19
DJ's latest victory now means he's a virtual lock
00:21
to win the PGA Tour Player of the Year
00:23
for the first time.
00:25
In fact, he's finished in the top five
00:26
in an incredible 50% of his stroke place starts this season.
00:31
Even more impressive, he can guess how long
00:34
he hits his drives to the exact yardage.
00:39
[Johnson] 324
00:41
[Camera Person] TrackMan says 324! We have a winner.
00:45
(laughs) Well done!
00:46
[Johnson] That was a good guess.
00:48
Are you kidding?
00:49
That's some serious talent.
00:51
And it got us wondering.
00:52
Would you rather be able to his a golf ball 360 yards
00:56
or do a 360 dunk?
00:58
While you're dreaming about being able to do either
01:00
just know DJ doesn't have to choose.
01:02
Lucky bastard.
01:04
It seemed Johnson used to be followed around
01:06
by a dark cloud of disappointment and controversy.
01:08
But now that only thing trailing him these days
01:11
is his cute kid Tatum.
01:13
Oh, and every other golfer in the world.
01:16
That's right. DJ is the best player on the planet.
01:20
Sorry Jason Day. And sorry Dash Day.
01:23
Tatum's cutting into your TV time.
