Johnson won a master’s course-record of 268 at last year’s undertime. Last November, the tournament was delayed from April due to an epidemic, restricting movement with famous costumes.
Augusta: Top defending winner Dustin Johnson has just spent five months in his green jacket COVID-19 The epidemic is not trivial – but it’s time to put it to the national in August.
Johnson won a master’s course record with a 20-under-2 won course with in November last year, his movement was limited to tournaments and fancy outfits starting in late April due to the epidemic.
“I used to wear the most beautiful thing for dinner here,” Johnson said. I don’t really wear it anywhere else.
“I didn’t keep it for long, so I didn’t do too much, especially with Kovid and everyone, we don’t really like it very much, but I do enjoy wearing it while I’m here.”
The Augusta national rule states that the winner’s green jacket should be kept in the club, where he will choose the royal champion he chooses before his next Masters.
The only way for Johnson to get more time from Augusta National is to win again and despite the long game, he admits how tough it will be.
“It’s very hard to win once,” he said. “You have to do four good rounds at once. You have to do everything well. And with that perseverance and speed, it’s really a golf course because obviously any hole can pop out at any moment.”
Only Tiger Woods, Jack Nichols and Nick Faldo have won back-to-back Masters titles.
Only one American has been in the top ten in the PGA since Johnson finished eighth in the Riviera in February after winning the Masters, but he also won the Saudi International in February and loved the game as much as he did in the first round on Thursday.
“I think the game is getting intense again. I’m really comfortable,” Johnson said. “Not as good as November’s size, but I think it’s coming together.
“I started hitting a lot of shots and felt a lot more comfortable than a golf ball. I think it is in very good form. “
Last November’s rain-soft format has been replaced this week by a firm and fast course that will challenge every area of the player’s game.
“You need to do something good this week,” he said. “The course is in excellent condition. It’s too hard. “
“Whether the ball is moving backwards or standing in place or not moving forward, you can still hit quality golf shots and deliver them to your desired destination.
“But as the course gets stronger and faster, you should be a little more careful about hitting the ball.”
Johnson is satisfied that the number of fans has declined since the ban was imposed last year.
“This year is definitely a completely different idea,” he said. “It’s very exciting to bring them back. It certainly brings a lot of excitement. “
