What’s in the Bag: Winner Dustin Johnson at the Northern Trust



Dustin Johnson chased down rival Jordan Spieth to win the Northern Trust in a sudden-death playoff. Johnson closed with a 66—which included sinking a dramatic 17-foot par putt on the final hole—to catch Spieth and send their duel into overtime.

A 341-yard drive and 60-degree wedge to 3 feet that set up a birdie sealed the victory for DJ on the first playoff hole.

“I didn’t lose the tournament,” Spieth said. “He won it.”

Johnson’s long game was steady as usual, but a putter change also turned out to be a key to winning the first leg of the FedExCup Playoffs. Johnson replaced his TaylorMade Spider Tour Black mallet with the TaylorMade TP Collection Juno Prototype.

“I got a little bit more feel with the putter instead of the Spider I was using,” Johnson said. “I was getting a little bit too mechanical …. I was worrying about too many things when I was putting instead of just putting.”

Johnson ranked 16th in Strokes Gained for the week and sank clutch putts down the stretch. Following is a look at the winner’s bag of TaylorMade clubs.
