Dustin Johnson claims victory at LIV Golf’s Las Vegas Invitational

Dustin Johnson has won his third LIV Golf title at the Las Vegas Invitational, finishing one shot ahead of his closest competitors. He birdied three of the last six holes to claim the $4 million prize money. Johnson battled cold and windy conditions throughout the tournament, ultimately topping the leaderboard at 12 under.

Talor Gooch and Peter Uihlein finished second at 11 under, while Matthew Wolff was one shot behind them. Paul Casey, Graeme McDowell, and Jason Kokrak tied for fifth at eight under. Jon Rahm followed closely behind in fourth place on the leaderboard.

Johnson commented on his victory, saying “It’s a great win. I knew it was going to be tough with the conditions.” He acknowledged the difficulty of playing against a group of skilled players right around the lead. Bryson DeChambeau shared the 36-hole lead with Johnson but finished tied for ninth at seven under after a final-round four-over-par 74.

Smash GC, consisting of Gooch, McDowell, Kokrak and captain Brooks Koepka took home the team title with a score of 33-under, seven shots ahead of Johnson’s 4Aces. This is Johnson’s third LIV Golf title in just two years – he previously won in Boston in 2022 and Tulsa in 2021.
