Dustin Johnson quotes

I'm not sure I need 30 mph wind in my first tournament back.feedback

Feeling good. Healthy, so can't complain. Obviously, I haven't played much or done a whole lot of practicing, but the body is all good. Glad to be back out playing again.feedback

I'll take it, though. I need all the good shots I can get. I haven't hit too many lately. I was on a good roll, playing the best golf of my career leading into Augusta. I've had a lot more time off than I would have liked to have had. Still, I feel like I'm swinging really well. Hit a few good shots out there today. But we'll just have to see. I haven't played many rounds, and definitely haven't played any competitive rounds since six weeks ago.feedback

My heart is in it and wants to play. The more I thought about it, I just wasn't going to have a chance.feedback

Tatum was on the way home from day care. And it was pouring down rain, so I was going to go move the car. I was just wearing my socks.feedback

Probably another two days and I'd be fine. If it had happened on Monday, I don't think we would have any issues.feedback

I want to play. I just can't swing. I'm playing the best golf of my career. This is one of my favorite tournaments of the year. Then a freak accident happened (Wednesday) when I got back from the course. It sucks. It sucks really bad. It would have been better if it was full set of stairs. I would have slid all the way down. But there were only three steps. I landed on my left side. My left elbow is sore and bruised. My lower left back took the brunt of it.feedback

I was doing everything I would to try to play. Last night, it was ice, heat, ice. I was up pretty much all night trying to get it ready for today. I had it worked on all morning. Obviously, I can make some swings. But I can't make my normal swing.feedback

He was walking around, a lot more mobility, took a couple of practice swings slowly without a club.feedback

The short game is going to be very important around here because if it's blowing 27 miles an hour, like it's forecasted for, it's going to be tough to hit the greens. You're going to really have to be careful where you hit it and just try to make pars.feedback

If it would have happened on Monday, I don't think we'd have any issues. But it happened Wednesday. To have a freak accident happen, it sucks. It sucks really bad.feedback

I was making swings on the range but could only go 80%. I could make a good backswing but at impact it was too much. So I don't feel like there was any chance of me competing. I was doing everything I could to play. I was up most of last night using ice, using heat, using ice again. I was desperate to get it ready for this morning. I just can't make my normal swing because of my lower left back. I'm playing the best golf of my career. This is an event I look forward to every year, so to have a freak accident mean I can't play? It just sucks, it really does.feedback

I didn't get much sleep but that's not the issue. I want to play. The issue is I just can't swing.feedback

I can't do it. I don't feel there's any chance of competing.feedback

I've got a lot of confidence in my game right now, especially with the way I've been playing the last few tournaments. But, you know, anything can happen.feedback

I feel like my game's really solid right now. I feel like I've been working hard on it and I feel like I'm playing really well. It's a lot of fun.feedback

I didn't even know that. Am I considered an old player now? Geez, I mean, the guys that are the younger guys on tour, I guess I can say the younger guys, I feel like I'm one of the young guys, but they're very good. There's a lot of great players, a lot of great young players.feedback

It doesn't matter how good you're playing, you can still not win. It's the same that goes for this week. If I want to win here everything has to go well for me. I am going to have to drive it well, hit my irons well, putt it well. Everything is going to have to be really good.feedback

I don't know. It's the first time I've ever been the favorite.feedback

I made strides in my putting this week, which is something I can take a lot of confidence into next week. Putting well next week obviously is important considering I didn't strike it very well last year and certainly was in position to win.feedback

Major championships have huge weight and I'm not focused on trying to win majors to get to No1 any more. It's just trying to do it to do it. So, that side of things, getting No1 isn't the pressure that I feel, but that's the only way to really take big strides towards him because I don't think he's letting up anytime soon.feedback

I'm not trying to say I told you so, but I definitely called this and I have been quoted as doing so. So I'm not in the least bit surprised that he is the guy to beat. And it's going to be very difficult at this point, considering he was No1 and he's won two World Golf Championships in two starts. I'm pretty sure he's got a big ranking lead now.feedback

I've got a lot of confidence now. Confidence in my game and confidence in myself. I just need to keep working on it, keep trying to get better and keep working hard.feedback

I don't care. I'm not surprised with the number of wins I've had in the last 10 months. I believe in my ability. And I know what it takes to win out here. I definitely have what it takes. I still feel like I'm not playing my best golf. I'm playing really well, don't get me wrong, but I don't feel like I'm playing my best.feedback

Today was a really tough day. I'm proud of the way I played, the way I stayed in there, even though he (Rahm) made some birdies on the back nine. I didn't give him any holes, except for 10 (where) I three-putted. It was tough out there. The greens got really fast, the wind was affecting all the putts. Jon played really well. I just didn't really give him anything.feedback

I've played really solid every day. Today I made a bunch of birdies, no bogeys and usually in match play you do that, you win. Just because I'm number one I don't get a pass. I've still got to play really well, work hard. Being number one makes me want to work a little harder so I can stay there.feedback

Putting is the hardest part. It's very breezy and then really gusty at times.feedback

Got a long way to go, but getting the first match in the books with a win is definitely a head start.feedback

I'm playing very well right now. I think that's my advantage. But playing match play doesn't matter if you're No. 1 or whatever number you are because it's only 18 holes. And anything can happen.feedback

I've got a lot of confidence in the game. I feel like I'm controlling my ball very well and I feel I'm starting to drive a little straighter.feedback

I try to put myself in a position to win every golf tournament. Each week I go out, I'm prepared to win and I want to just give myself a chance to win when I turn to the back nine on Sunday.feedback

My first week playing as No. 1, there's obviously a little bit extra pressure, a lot of limelight on me. So to come out and win, it means a lot.feedback

He's got a lot. But yeah, I'm going to try.feedback

It's a tough spot to be in. There's a lot of pressure on you. I came out and played really well.feedback

It happens. If it's not the greens – someone is playing goalie up by the hole – the trees are catching my ball.feedback

I feel like I'm hitting good putts, they're just very difficult. I feel like someone's playing goalie up by the hole. It's not going my way right now, but hopefully I can roll in a few more putts this weekend. I feel like I'm hitting it great.feedback

You've got to play very well for a long period of time. Winning a major is unbelievably difficult, too, but you only have to play well for four days.feedback

That's how it goes. The greens are a little tricky. I felt like I hit the ball really well, though. I scored poorly. I missed five putts inside 4, 5 feet. That's the difference between playing a really good round and just playing an OK round.feedback

I thought I controlled the ball very well. Just need to make a few putts.feedback

Winning the golf tournament ... that's what I was here to do.feedback

I don't really understand it. But I can read 1-2-3. I guess that's all that matters. I mean, I think I'm a good player. Everybody has their own opinion. I believe in myself. I think I'm a great player. The best in the world? I mean, until now I probably wouldn't have said I was the best in the world. But now I can say it. I didn't finish the last 10 holes the way I'd like to, but I had a pretty good lead. I was on cruise control. Next year.feedback

I didn't finish the last 10 holes the way I'd like to, but I had a pretty good lead. I was on cruise control.feedback

It sounds good. I played really great all day. I couldn't have driven it any better. That was a big key.feedback

I'm very comfortable. I've had a lot of good finishes so it gives me a lot of confidence going into the last two rounds. I hit a few squirrelly shots. I drove it well all day. I just hit some poor iron shots in the middle of the round. Didn't make any of my short (putts) but made a few long ones.feedback

I like it either way, when it's soft or firm. It's one of my favorite courses we play all year.feedback

Obviously, it would be great to get there but I'm focused on this week and this golf tournament, each shot that I'm hitting. I just want to put myself in position to win on Sunday.feedback

Anything's possible, but I'm going to have to shoot a really special round.feedback

There's still room to work harder, but I'm at a level that works best for me so I don't get too burned out. I feel like I'm putting in enough quality work that works for my mentality so I'm not overdoing it.feedback

I don't even know if I dreamed this would be happening.feedback

Knowing the work I'm putting in is working drives me to work harder, it makes me more driven to be better. That's what gives me confidence.feedback
