RBC CANADIAN OPEN

July 29, 2018

Dustin Johnson

Oakville, Ontario, Canada

Q. Dustin, congratulations. 1th tour win at the RBC Canadian Open. How much does this win mean this week particularly after the missed cut last week?
DUSTIN JOHNSON: Yeah, even after the missed cut last week, I felt like I was hitting it fine. I just did not score very well at Carnoustie at all. I didn't putt good. I just scored really badly. But I hit the ball -- I felt like I hit the ball plenty good enough to be under par after two days, and I was 5-over or something. It was just bad scoring.

So I worked on it a little bit this week. I felt like even coming in here, I felt like I was swinging it well, doing everything really well. I needed to work on the putter though, which I did. Started rolling the putter a lot better here this week. You know, really, really hit the ball well all four days.

Q. Yeah, I thought your ball striking tee to green was good. The putting was good. You worked on that. Obviously Paulina has ties to Canada. I mean, you win the RBC Canadian Open, you're an RBC ambassador, it's got to mean something pretty special?
DUSTIN JOHNSON: Yeah, it definitely means a lot. Signing with RBC this year, and coming up here to the RBC Canadian Open and winning, especially on a golf course where I've had success, it means a lot. Obviously having a lot of ties to Canada with Paulina, her dad, Wayne, who, thanks to him, I get a lot of fans out here, so it makes it a lot more fun playing out here in front of a big crowd. I had a lot of support this week, and it was a lot of fun.

Q. You get the third win of the season, you pad the FedExCup points. Congratulations, see you next week.
DUSTIN JOHNSON: Thank you.
