  • Dustin Johnson hits lucky 21 with Travelers Championship win

Johnson was tied for 79th after the opening round on Thursday, the lowest first-round position by a victor in the tournament's history. "I felt like I was playing well enough to shoot some better scores, and it just wasn't quite happening for me".

"I'm definitely proud of myself for continuing the streak.it was a long time between wins though - hopefully it won't be that long for the next one", Johnson said in a televised interview.

American Will Gordon rocketed nine spots up the leaderboard with a 64 to finish tied for third on 263 with Canadian Mackenzie Hughes (67), who shot a 60 in the opening round.

"As part of the PGA Tour's pre-charter testing process, Tour player Dylan Frittelli tested positive for COVID-19".

"Obviously it's a great streak and any time your mentioned with those names it's good", said Johnson, who finished on 19 under, one clear of Kevin Streelman.

After a bogey on the seventh saw him relinquish a share of the lead, Johnson bounced back with a curling 27-foot birdie putt on the eighth to get back to 18 under.

He was two strokes behind Johnson on the 17th fairway when the weather horn blew for an hour-long storm delay.

Just when Johnson looked like he might cruise to victory, he hooked his tee shot out of bounds at the par-5 13th and needed to make a clutch 7-foot putt for bogey.

Global coronavirus pandemic death toll passes half a million
Texas reported more than 17,000 confirmed new cases over the past three days, with a record high of almost 6,000 on Thursday. Since restrictions to stem spread of the virus were gradually lifted from mid-April, cases have increased again.

How it happened: Johnson quickly erased his two-shot deficit to start the round and staked himself to a two-shot lead of his own with three straight birdies at Nos.

Streelman, who made seven straight birdies to win at TPC River Highlands in 2014, had a 37-foot birdie try on 18 that ended up just short and right. 17 and 18, and after Johnson safely parred the 17th, he made par on the 18th to seal the win. Playing this week on a sponsor's exemption, Gordon, the 2019 SEC Player of the Year out of Vanderbilt, carded rounds of 66-62-71-64 to open up his playing options for the rest of the summer, as he is now allowed to accept an unlimited number of exemptions through the remainder of the season. Todd shot a 75 to tie for 11th at 13 under.

Bryson DeChambeau shot a 68 to tie for sixth at 15 under. Johnson had to take off his shoes and stood in the water to play his second shot at the par 4, but escaped with par.

There were seven COVID-19-related withdrawals from the CT event, with two positive tests among players.

Dylan Frittelli became the fourth PGA Tour player to test positive for the coronavirus and had to withdraw from the Rocket Mortgage Classic next week in Detroit.

Frittelli's case comes after Denny McCarthy, fellow player Cameron Champ and caddies Ken Comboy and Ricky Elliott tested positive during the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands.

The PGA Tour is making some tweaks to its coronavirus policies as a result of this week's issues.
