Dustin Johnson Beats Jordan Spieth in Playoff to Win Northern Trust

Dustin Johnson at Northern Trust

Dustin Johnson faced long odds all day against Jordan Spieth until the longest drive led to an unlikely playoff victory Sunday in The Northern Trust.

Johnson rallied from a five-shot deficit on the front nine. And on the final hole in regulation, after one of the most powerful players in golf chose to lay up from the rough, his 18-foot par putt swirled around the cup and fell in the back side for a 4-under 66 to force a sudden-death playoff.
