Top 3 Golf Reads // 2.13.2020

Opening Shot

Johnson has turned up to the Genesis with three different putters in the bag - a blade, a mallet and a blade/mallet hybrid. It's not surprising though since DJ has lost strokes on the greens in 7 of his last 8 events.

If he loses strokes on the greens at an event where he has gained strokes in 6 of the previous 7 years, are we looking at a "DJ with the yips" story beginning to emerge?
