    DJ produces more magic to win Saudi International
    Dustin Johnson

    Dustin Johnson’s incredible run of form continued when he won the Saudi International by two strokes on Sunday.

    The world No 1 strengthened his grip as the best player in the world with another spectacular performance that saw him rise into contention over the weekend.

    Johnson started the final-round’s action with a narrow lead but kept his cool to sign off with a winning score of 15 under par.

    A two-under-par 68 was enough to edge ahead of Justin Rose and Tony Finau, who both looked threatening to push Johnson all the way.

    But, the 36-year-old held firm and sank a birdie on the 17th hole to take a two-shot lead into the 72nd hole where he made par.

    It was enough to leave Rose and Finau behind in T2 as Johnson bagged his second Saudi International win in three years.

    Victor Perez and Calum Hill secured a share of 4th spot by finishing the week on 12 under, while Rasmus Hogjaard, Ryan Fox, Viktor Hovland and Tyrrell Hatton ended on 11 under par.

    It was also another consistent four rounds for South Africa’s George Coetzee, who ended in T10 and on ten under par.
