Home Strokes Gained at WGC-Cadillac

Dustin Johnson came from five strokes back at the end of the third round to win his ninth career PGA TOUR event at the WGC-Cadillac Championship on Sunday. Johnson has now won at least once every season since 2008. J.B. Holmes led after the first round with an opening 62. The field average was 73.4 for the opening round, so Holmes gained an amazing 11.4 strokes against the field. That was the fourth-best round against the field on the PGA TOUR since 1983! The best round against the field was Jim Furyk’s gain of 12.1 strokes with his second round 59 in the 2013 BMW Championship. Holmes gained 0.5 strokes against the field with his second-round 73 and gained another 2.6 strokes with his third-round 70.  His final round of 75 lost 1.4 strokes to the field, and that stumble was enough to allow Johnson to overtake him.
