American Dustin Johnson overcame blunders on the back nine to win his first PGA Tour event in 16 months at the Travelers Championship.
The 36-year-old dropped shots on the 13th and 16th holes in Cromwell, Connecticut but a three-under-par round took him to 19 under overall. He held off the challenge of compatriot Kevin Streelman by a stroke. Johnson said he was proud to have won a PGA Tour event in each of his 13 consecutive seasons on Tour. The world number three is only the third player in Tour history to win a title in each of his first 13 seasons, joining Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods. American Will Gordon and Canadian Mackenzie Hughes finished tied for third on 17 under. Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy finished tied for 11th after a three-under-par 67 on the last day got him to 13 under.
