Published Add your comment

Dustin Johnson has returned to winning ways just a month after returning from a six month sabbatical to tackle an alcohol problem.

Having controversially walked away from the game eight months ago it was widely reported he had been banned by the PGA Tour for taking drugs.

The PGA Tour rejected those claims but an unhearing silence from the Johnson camp added fuel to the fire.

With the reasoning clear as to why has took six months away he returned at the Farmers Insurance Open in early February.

There were doubts as whether he would return for that tournament as his fiancé Paulina was due to give birth.

Having given birth to a healthy baby boy just weeks before the Farmers Open Johnson felt the time was right to return.

To nobody’s real surprise he failed to make the cut as he dusted of the cobwebs having not played competitive golf in so long.

He picked himself up and finished tied fourth at Pebble Beach with an impressive 17 under par.

Back with a bang

Johnson was close to winning his first tournament just a fortnight ago when he entered a play off at the Northern Trust Open but lost out to James Hahn.

The 30 year old continued the mammoth tour by playing in the Honda Classic last week where he failed to make the cut in a tournament that was ravaged by terrible weather conditions.

This week however in Miami, Johnson got himself over the line with a score of 9 under par. He was pushed all the way by J.B Holmes but the new father was able to hold on.

This win will put to bed a lot of lingering questions about the future and commitment of Johnson to the game of golf.

Having won he will look to win again in, this time at the Masters in April.
