Dustin Johnson (71-65—136)

To get to within four strokes of the 2014 Open Championship lead, Dustin Johnson’s 7-under 65 at Royal Liverpool Golf Club is the low round of the day and championship so far.

Johnson is making his sixth consecutive Open Championship appearance this week. In his previous five, he collected top-15 finishes in 2010 (T14), 2011 (T2) and 2012 (T9). Johnson finished T32 last year at Muirfield. His lone missed cut came in his first start in 2009.

Johnson is making his 23rd major championship start this week. His best showing is a T2 at the 2011 Open Championship. At the U.S. Open last month, Johnson finished T4. Overall, he has amassed seven top-10 finishes in major championships.

Johnson, an eight-time winner on the PGA TOUR, is looking to join Jimmy Walker (Frys.com Open, Sony Open in Hawaii, AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am), Patrick Reed (Humana Challenge, WGC-Cadillac Championship) Bubba Watson (Northern Trust Open, Masters) and Martin Kaymer (PLAYERS Championship, U.S. Open) as a multiple winner this year.

Through 36 holes, Johnson has hit 19/28 fairways in regulation (58.7 percent) and 28/36 greens in regulation (77.8 percent). He is tied for first in the greens-in-regulation category.
