Dustin Johnson becomes World No.1 with win at Genesis Open

Playing the all-new 2017 M1 460 driver and TP5X ball, Dustin Johnson extends the PGA Tour's longest active streak with a win in 10 consecutive seasons.

Dustin Johnson dominated the Genesis Open to win by five shots with rounds of 66-66-64-71 for a four round total of 266 to claim his 13th career PGA Tour win.

After playing M1 for most of 2016, Johnson experimented with M2 for a few months at the end of 2016, before finally landing back with the new 2017 M 460 driver due to the overall performance. The 2017 M1 provided him with 500rpm less spin than his M2 and was going around 8 yards further on Trackman.

Dustin also put the new 2017 M1 3 HL Fairway Wood in play this week. It's cut to a 5 FW length i.e. 1" shorter than standard and has 16* loft. With this combo, Dustin carries it 280 yards, which is exactly what he's looking for in a 3 wood - at standard length it was just going too far.
