Dustin Johnson opens third round with easy eagle at WGC-Mexico Championship

When you're one of the longest hitters on the PGA Tour and the No. 1-ranked player in the world, you obviously have the ability to hit some amazing shots.

But at altitude, Dustin Johnson is hitting video game-type shots.

DJ opened his round three strokes back of leader Rory McIlroy, but quickly closed that gap by crushing a 2-iron and making the 322-yard par-4 first hole look like a simple par 3.

Shot 1: 322-yard drive

Shot 2: 20-foot putt for eagle

Johnson then birdied the second hole and saved par with a long putt on the third hole to open his round at 3-under with three putts through 3 holes.

Keep the popcorn bucket filled for an exciting weekend.
