The Masters: Dustin Johnson aims to continue aggressive game-plan on final day | Golf News

first_img3:27 More recently, he was unable to hang onto a one-shot lead at the PGA Championship in August and finished two behind Collin Morikawa, but the 36-year-old insisted that Sunday would be a “good day”.“If I can play like I did today, I think it will break that streak,” said Johnson, who made a spectacular start to his third round with a towering five-iron to tap-in range for eagle at the second, backing that up with a birdie at the third and a 30-foot putt for another at the fourth before cruising to the turn in 31. Dustin Johnson says he has a plan in place that he hopes he can execute on Sunday after taking a four-stroke lead heading into the final day of The Masters “With the conditions being soft, you can be really aggressive no matter what club you have in your hand, as long as you feel comfortable with how far you’re going to fly it. I feel like the golf course is in really good condition with all the rain, and it’s just so soft so you’ve got to be aggressive and you’ve got to attack the flags.“Going into tomorrow, I think I’ve got a good game-plan and I’m not going to change it. I’m going to have to go out and play well. There’s a lot of really good players right around me, so as we all know here, if you get it going, you can shoot some low scores.”Johnson has endured more than his fair share of final-round disappointments in majors when either leading outright (twice) or tied for the lead (twice) after the third round, most notably at the US Open 10 years ago when he led by three before he triple-bogeyed the second, doubled the third and dropped another at four, setting the tone for a closing 82.

I’m very comfortable with having the lead going into Sunday. I’ve been in this situation a lot of times, and I’m looking forward to the challenge” By Keith JacksonLast Updated: 15/11/20 12:13am Our round of day three goes to Dustin Johnson as the World No 1 takes a four-stroke lead into the final day of this year’s Masters Dustin Johnson vowed to continue with his aggressive game-plan as he takes a commanding four-shot lead into the final round of the Masters.Johnson insisted he was comfortable with his position despite being unable to convert four previous 54-hole leads in majors into victories, comparing his current form to his imperious performances early in 2017.He arrived at Augusta National as the clear world No 1 on the back of three successive victories, only to be denied the chance to compete for the Green Jacket when he injured his back in an unfortunate fall down a staircase at his rented home on the eve of the first round.But he is high on confidence as he looks to atone for that misfortune, and his optimism was justified following a high-quality seven-under 65 on day three which separated him from the chasing pack and matched the 54-hole scoring record of 16-under par.“I would say the game is in really good form right now,” said the world No 1, with more than a hint of understatement. “You know, it’s very similar to what it was back in 2017. It’s just very consistent.“I feel like I’ve got a lot of control with what I’m doing, controlling my distance well with my flight and my shape. I’m very comfortable standing over the golf ball right now, and obviously that’s a really good feeling. – Advertisement –center_img 1:46 Dustin Johnson says he has a plan in place that he hopes he can execute on Sunday after taking a four-stroke lead heading into the final day of The Masters – Advertisement – – Advertisement – “But it’s just 18 holes of golf. I need to go out and play solid. I feel like I’m swinging really well. If I can just continue to give myself a lot of looks at birdie, I think I’ll have a good day.“I’m very comfortable with having the lead going into Sunday. I’ve been in this situation a lot of times.

Women of Troy take care of business against mountain schools

first_imgBrian Ji | Daily TrojanIt was a successful homecoming Weekend for the No. 2-ranked women’s volleyball team, which came away victorious against Colorado (3-1) and Utah (3-0) at the Galen Center to push their record to 25-1 on the season. The Women of Troy also remain atop the Pac-12 standings with a 13-1 mark in conference play.Neither of the mountain schools could keep up with USC’s quick pace over the weekend, as the Women of Troy bested the Buffs in four sets on Friday night, (25-12, 25-14, 25-27, 25-23) before going on to sweep the Utes (25-13, 25-22, 25-20) on Sunday morning. USC remained undefeated all-time against Colorado, while upping their record against Utah to 15-2 overall. The Women of Troy also remained undefeated in matches played at the Galen Center this season at 13-0.It was another impressive string of matches for the leading National Player of the Year candidate in senior outside hitter Samantha Bricio, who averaged 25.75 points on the weekend in just seven total sets of play. The senior recorded 42 kills (6 kills per set) with only 7 combined errors for a .422 hitting percentage overall. She also tallied 14 digs, seven service aces and five blocks against the Mountain schools to bolster her numbers as the nation’s top scorer.Head coach Mick Haley was not surprised at his senior captain’s impressive numbers.“If you look at the teams that have gone to the Final Four in the last 6 or 7 years, everybody’s had a go-to person…somebody that makes it okay for everybody else and takes the team on their back when they need to,” Haley said. “Samantha’s been a good player for us for three years, and she is leading this team, not only by example but [also] encouragement.”Bricio also had some strong support from her teammates over the weekend. Fellow senior Alicia Ogoms tallied 15 total kills and just one error on 25 swings in the middle to go along with a team-high 9 blocks, while sophomore opposite Brittany Abercrombie recorded 18 kills and just 4 errors for a .378 hitting clip. Furthermore, freshman outside hitter Alyse Ford added 17 total kills, while junior middle blocker Elise Ruddins recorded 8 blocks overall.The setting tandem of junior Alice Pizzasegola and freshman Baylee Johnson also put up strong all-around numbers, with Pizzasegola dishing out 35 assists, 12 digs and a service ace on the weekend, while Johnson had a combined 53 assists, 21 digs, six kills and five total blocks. The backcourt duo of junior libero Taylor Whittingham and freshman defensive specialist Victoria Garrick once again remained steady, picking up 35 and 19 digs, respectively, to anchor USC’s defense.The Women of Troy will now remain at home to prepare for two more matches in the middle of the week. USC hosts the Oregon schools back-to-back, facing the Oregon Ducks on Wednesday and the Oregon State Beavers on Thursday. Both matches will start at 7:30 p.m. at the Galen Center.In addition, Bricio is now just 22 kills away from setting USC’s all-time record for career kills. She trails current record holder Alex Jupiter (1,918; 2008-11) and will more than likely move into 10th place in Pac-12 history for career kills within the next two matches.last_img read more
