After sitting out for the last six months to deal with what he called "personal challenges," Dustin Johnson returned to the PGA Tour today. So, how's his golf game?
 
Pretty darn good, judging by his approach shot into the par-4 fourth hole on the South Course at Torrey Pines. Johnson opened with three straight pars, then hit his drive to within 159 yards of the flag on the 462-yard par 4. He then stepped up, took a nice, smooth swing and sent his ball flying directly at the pin.
 
 
It hit the green, bounced a couple times and made a beeline right into the hole – a thing of beauty, and no doubt the shot of the day in the Farmers Insurance Open. Johnson bogeyed his next two holes to fall back to even par but, even so, it's great to see DJ and his gorgeous swing back out on tour.
