Dustin Johnson – Pushing the Limits

By Robert James


The days in that Las Vegas hotel room had to be a bit traumatizing for Dustin Johnson. Not only was he stuck there in isolation, unable to exercise or play golf, but unable to leave, period.


Johnson, 36, saw the coronavirus hit home back in October when he was preparing for the Masters. Ready to embark on a two-week swing of tournaments that would help him get ready for the postponed Masters, Johnson could only fret away the time.


Having tested positive for COVID-19 at the PGA Tour stop in Las Vegas called the CJ Cup at Shadow Creek, Johnson was forced to self-isolate in his room for 11 days. Meals at the door. No human interaction. And plenty of time to ponder.


His biggest takeaway? “At least I know I’ll get to play in the Masters.”
