2011 Golfer Countdown
BORN: June 22, 1984, Columbia, S.C.
FEDEX FINISH: 5
2010 PGA TOUR EARNINGS: $4,473,122
WORLD GOLF RANKING: 14 (as of Feb. 15, 2011)
GOLF CHANNEL’S BRANDEL CHAMBLEE GIVES HIS TAKE: Dustin Johnson has finished in the top 10 in three of the last five majors, and in 2011 will very likely pick up right where he left off in 2010. The reason is an asteroid storm of talent that leaves viewers agape. At 26 years old, he has the highest upside and potential of any player under 30 in the world. I can’t wait to watch what he does this year and for the rest of his career.
