It's Dustin Johnson's tourney to lose

Johnson managed to finish T-12 last week at THE PLAYERS, with an average game on a gimmicky golf course. The world No. 1 is in the hunt again this week at the Byron Nelson, and the TPC Four Seasons layout suits his game perfectly. Johnson ranks near the top in total strokes gained this week, and is No. 1 in driving distance, which is a lethal combination. The other bad thing for the rest of the field is that Johnson still feels his game isn't where it was prior to The Masters.

Final week to avoid US Open qualifying
