Johnson shares Canadian Open lead after 65

Johnson shares Canadian Open lead after 65

With 18 PGA Tour wins, including two this season, Johnson will head into Sunday's final round as the heavy favorite since the three other men sharing the lead are all chasing maiden PGA Tour titles.

Johnson finished the week 23 under, firing all four rounds in the 60s at the Glen Abbey Golf Course. But I felt like I hit the ball plenty good enough to be under par after 2 days, and I was 5 over or something.

"It's important on a lot of levels, it's so bunched that a great round would go a long way", said Taylor, who played Saturday with world No. 1 Johnson.

South Korea's Byeong Hun An (69) and Whee Kim (69) finished as runners up at 20-under in the US$6.2 million event, with American Keegan Bradley (64) placing fourth at 19 under.

"I want to win just because I like to win but this is the last one here so it would mean a lot to get it done here tomorrow as I have finished second here twice", said Johnson.

Using his competitive advantage north of the border, Dustin Johnson, who is married to Paulina Gretzky, the daughter of 'The Great One, ' won the RBC Canadian Open this past weekend behind no shortage of fan support from the Canadian crowd. "It feels like I am part of history".

"I needed to work on the putter though, which I did", Johnson said.

"I'm going to have to go out and play really well, play aggressive, and make a lot of birdies".

The 37-year-old Australian started moving day at Toronto's famed Glen Abbey course just four shots off the pace, only to tumble down the leaderboard with a three-over-par 75 leaving him at seven under and 10 shots back of the 54-hole lead. "Really, really hit the ball well all 4 days".

An shot 66, and Kim 67.

After Johnson took his only bogey of the day at the 12th, his lead was trimmed to a single shot but the 34-year-old was unshakeable, answering with a birdie at 13 to get back on track. "I didn't give myself many birdie chances".

After wrapping up a bogey-free 66 on Friday, Johnson picked up where he left off by jump-starting his third round with three consecutive birdies. It is also shifting forward in the PGA Tour's schedule, moving to early June in the week before the U.S. Open.
