  • Dustin Johnson reflects on his second round one-under 69 at The Northern Trust

Jordan Spieth rolled into Sunday with a solid lead at The Northern Trust, and he has never lost a PGA Tour event when entering into the final round with a multi-shot lead.

Conversely, Spieth started fast with two birdies in his first five holes but hit a submerged log at the par-3 6th when he found water off the tee. Here's the full recap of an exciting duel.

Spieth reclaimed the lead on the 14th only for Johnson to hole from 17 feet on the next, with Spieth then holing from a similar distance to save par on the 17th after following Johnson into a greenside bunker. It's been a tough road to get back to where I feel like my game's able to compete out here again.

"I figure my best bet was, I know I'm swinging really well and hitting my wedges good, you know, to leave myself at a good number, which I did", the World No.1 said of taking his medicine after finding trouble at the last.

Asked about the NY fans' reaction to him, Dustin Johnson said, "I love playing in NY". "If I can continue to play the way I have been, I should be OK". Facing a blind shot to the hole, Johnson hit his approach shot 18 feet past the hole. "I was hoping it wasn't going to be that much fun".

Johnson then turned the tables with a stunning downhill effort of his own at the 18th for a par that sent the pair to extra holes.

Park birdied the final hole for a 7-under 64 and a two-stroke victory over fellow South Korean player Mirim Lee.

As Johnson made a couple of bad swings, Fowler caught up with him on the front nine itself. "This was the first one I've really had to work at. But to finally come out and do it, especially after the string of good finishes this summer, is really special".

"Knowing that I've got some momentum going into those two weeks, it's huge", Day said.

When asked after the round of what proved to be the defining shot from the tee Johnson was his typical nonchalant self. "I think it was a ideal game (Sunday)", she said. I was a little disappointed yesterday after the way I played.

"I was hoping it wasn't going to be that much fun", he said, adding: "It's very hard holding a lead on a hard golf course when the guy you're playing with goes bogey-free and doesn't even really sniff a bogey and shoots four under". Jhonattan Vegas was within two shots after playing the scoring holes.

Sunday's win was Johnson's second Northern Trust victory and fourth FedExCup Playoff title.

"Finally, this is the first week I felt like my game was back to where it was; where I feel like I've got complete control over it", said Johnson.
