Canadian Open report

What happens when Dustin Johnson misses his first cut of the season? Win on his very next start, of course!

It was a big surprise to see the world No.1 fail to make the weekend at Carnoustie, but his performance this week at the RBC Canadian Open reminded everyone why he is rightfully the best player on the planet.

Johnson shared the lead with the Korean duo Byeong-Hun An and Whee Kim heading into the final round, and he started assertively with birdies on each of the opening two holes to get his nose in front at Glen Abbey Golf Club.

The 34-year-old went on to birdie the 8th to go out in 32, and then made a further two birdies either side of a bogey at the 12th.

Kim and An were both playing nicely, but it was clear that they didn’t have the extra gear that Johnson possesses. At the 16th, after he drove into the left rough, Johnson gouged a pitching wedge from 180yards over the back of the green to set up another stress-free birdie on a par-5.

Speaking to Claude Harmon III in an interview after the third round, Johnson commented that he wanted to get to 25-under-par. At the time, that seemed like a pretty unrealistic aim, but after Johnson came up just two shots short of that total with a birdie at the 18th, it just shows how confident he is in his own ability.

And with it, this commanding performance secures Johnson’s 19th PGA Tour win, and his third of this season.

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
