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.

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.

New Jersey Devils finding new identity under interim head coach Alain Nasreddine: ‘Use our speed and play fast’

first_imgNEWARK, N.J. — “It’s simple; it’s ‘play fast.'”Before even letting the question of what he wants to accomplish with his new club marinade, interim head coach Alain Nasreddine made sure the answer was clear — he wants his team to play with speed.

That was the message the first day,” New Jersey’s new bench boss said prior to Friday’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks. “We have a lot of speed on the team upfront.

They were controlling the pace of the game with their legs, owning possession and scoring opportunities.There were even times that the Hawks missed checks because New Jersey’s speedsters were evading them with their quickness.”I thought our first period and our decisions with the puck were also good and that’s what we talked about, using our speed. I thought we did that,” Nasreddine told the media postgame.”I’ll take the effort, for the most part, we played the way we wanted to play and we’ll take it. It would’ve been nice to get two points, but we’ll take the one.”🚨: Hall🍎: Gusev🍏: VatanenHall Solo shot first #TheOnesWeAre | #CHIvsNJD https://t.co/LIKUnvmpVu pic.twitter.com/D7u8m745YU— New Jersey Devils (@NJDevils) December 7, 2019One silver lining: the Devils are starting to find their identity, and that’s a good sign for a team that currently sits at the bottom of the standings. As goes the cliché, Rome wasn’t built in a day. “There’s different ways of being tough to play against; you can be physical or you can be on top of players on the other team. That’s what we are trying to do, use our speed and play fast,” Nasreddine said after the optional morning skate on Friday.MORE: Taylor Hall to the Coyotes?
