Dustin Johnson is worth $50 million and is a professional golfer from the United States. He has been the world's number one golfer for 64 weeks, dating back to 2017 (the longest winning streak in golf history).

Johnson has had a lengy and extremely successful career, especially when it comes to the World Golf Championships, where he is second only to Tiger Woods in terms of wins. His exceptional driving ability makes him one of the longest drivers on the PGA Tour.

Dustin is said to have won a total of $70 million in tournament prize money. He is the third highest-paid golfer behind Tiger Woods ($120 million) and Phil Mickelson ($92 million), including the $15 million at the 2020 FedEx Cup championship. FedEx Cup money, on the other hand, is not considered PGA Tour winnings. He is the fifth highest-paid golfer in history once you deduct the $15 million.

Early Life

Dustin Hunter Johnson was born in Columbia, South Carolina, on June 22nd, 1984. He rapidly developed a liking for golf, and while at Coastal Carolina University, he joined the college team. 

He majored in Sports Management while at university. From the beginning, Johnson showed a lot of promise as an amateur golfer, but little did people know, he also loves to read gaming blogs. One of his favorites is Mecca blog.

Career

At the age of 23, he had turned pro, and by 2008, he had acquired a PGA Tour card. He won the Turning Stone Resort Championship in his first year on the PGA Tour before going on to win the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Johnson was ranked 15th on the PGA Tour in terms of money won by the end of the 2009 season.

In 2010 Johnson made headlines when he overcame former world number one David Duval to win the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Johnson returned with a win at the BMW Championship at Cog Hill after a string of dismal finishes at the PGA Championship and the 2010 US Open Golf Tournament. He had climbed to fourth place on the PGA Tour money list by the end of the 2010 season.

In 2011, he finished in a tie for second place at the 2011 Open Championship in England. This result was his best-ever performance in a major championship at this point in his career. Johnson was also ranked seventh in the world as a result of this performance. According to the Official World Golf Ranking, he is now the third-best golfer in the world.

He also won another PGA Tour title at The Barclays in 2011, propelling him to fourth place in the world rankings (Despite having a poor start to the 2012 season due to injury that kept him out of the play for two months) He did, however, bounce back in 2013, winning the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

2014 was just another stumbling block in Johnson's career. He revealed during that year that he would be taking a vacation from golf to seek help for "personal difficulties."

Dustin demonstrated his promise when he returned to golf in 2015, returning to the top 15 in the global rankings. In 2016, he got back into the top three in the world rankings. He ultimately became the world's number one golfer after winning the Genesis Open by five shots in 2017. Johnson is one of three to have won a championship in each of his first ten seasons with this victory. 

Career

Johnson also won the WGC-Mexico Championship, the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, and The Northern Trust during 2017. He could not compete in the 2017 Masters Tournament due to a back injury sustained after sliding down his stairs at home. In 2018, he won the RBC Canadian Open, the FedEx St. Jude Classic, and the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

He won both the Saudi International and the WGC-Mexico Championship in 2019. He also finished with a second at the PGA Championship and tied for second at the Masters' Tournament. He won the Travelers Championship in 2020 after shooting a score of 19 under par. He continued to succeed as he won the Northern Trust, FedEx Cup, and Tour Championship, returning to the top of the world rankings.

Golf Earnings

Dustin has amassed a total prize pool of more than $70 million from tournaments. He is the third-highest-earning golfer of all time, after Tiger Woods ($120 million) and Phil Mickelson ($92 million), after the $15 million he won at the 2020 FedEx Cup championship. However, because FedEx Cup money is not counted as PGA tour wins, Dustin is technically the sixth highest-paid golfer in history once you exclude the FedEx Cup money.

PGA win tour or not Johnson is a great sportsman and no one can take that away from him.
