PGA TOUR Highlights

Posted a T3 at Northern Trust Open where he held first- and second-round leads after 64-67. Scored second career ace with hole-in-one at No. 6 during second round, the 34th ace at Northern Trust since 1979 (when record keeping began)...Birdied the par-5 18th hole at Pebble Beach to gain a one-stroke victory over David Duval and J.B. Holmes, making him the first player in 20 years to win back-to-back in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Closed with a 2-over 74, the highest final round by a Pebble Beach champion since Johnny Miller (74) in 1994. Became the first player since Tiger Woods to go straight from college and win in each of his first three years on the PGA TOUR. Hit a 3-iron second shot into the front right bunker on No. 18 and blasted out to 3 feet for the winning putt. In earlier groups, Duval and Holmes failed to birdie the finishing hole. Finished at 16-under-par 270 on a day in which four players had a share of the lead at some point.

2009 Season Highlights

Won for the second time in his career and finished 14th in the FedExCup standings a year after placing 134th...Picked up his second career victory at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Joined six other Americans under age 30 at the time with multiple PGA TOUR victories (J.B. Holmes, D.J. Trahan, Sean O'Hair, Anthony Kim, Nick Watney, Charles Howell III). Some 40 hours after hitting his last shot, won at Pebble Beach on Monday when rain created a small river through one fairway and flooded greens, forcing officials to cancel the final round. Built a four-shot lead Saturday with a 67 at Poppy Hills, holing a 7-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole that figured to give him a cushion going into the final round. But the final round was never played. Rain and wind strong enough to topple a 40-foot tree suspended the final round Sunday, and nearly 1.4 inches of rain and a forecast for more gloom along the Monterey Peninsula left the PGA TOUR no choice but to declare Johnson the winner after 54 holes. At age 24 years, 7 months, the youngest player to win the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am since Tiger Woods (24 years, 1 month) in 2000...The next week, opened with a 5-under 66 at the Northern Trust Open and went on to finish T10...Four rounds in the 60s earned a T4 at HP Byron Nelson Championship. Also secured a spot in the British Open, moving from 48rd to 43rd on the Official World Golf Ranking that week...Shot a final-round 70 at the PGA Championship to finish T10, his first career top-10 in a major...Shot a final-round, course-record 7-under 64 at Liberty National to improve from T51 after 54 holes to T15 at The Barclays. Much of Johnson's score was attributed to the two birdies and an eagle he made on the short par-4 16th hole. On Thursday, he made birdie, on Friday he chipped in for eagle and on Sunday he chipped in again for eagle from off the back of the green...Finished T4, two shots behind winner Steve Stricker, the following week at Deutsche Bank Championship, jumping to No. 10 on the FedExCup standings. Ranked No. 1 in both Putts Per Round (25.2) and Driving Distance (317-yard average) for the week...Ranked No. 11 in the FedExCup standings after the BMW Championship to earn his first trip to THE TOUR Championship presented by Coca-Cola...Finished 27th in his first appearance at THE TOUR Championship, after opening with a first-round 69.
