“Dustin Johnson proved that he can win without his best stuff,” co-host Mike Purkey says of the Travelers Championship winner. Co-host John Hawkins and Purkey discuss Johnson’s 21st PGA Tour victory. Does it assure the long-driving American a spot in the World Golf Hall of Fame? “It was a huge win for him,” Hawkins said. “I got the sense that he was trending in the wrong direction over the last 18 months.” Purkey notes that Johnson has 21 victories, including one major, matching inductees Davis Love III and Lanny Wadkins. Hawkins doesn’t see it. “Dustin Johnson has thrown away two U.S. Opens, a British Open and a PGA,” Hawk counters. “He’s basically this era’s Greg Norman.” Hawk & Purk also review NBC’s reacquisition of the U.S. Open from Fox.
