Well this probably is not news anymore, for the third time in as many events Dustin Johnson has taken home a trophy.

The worlds number one ranked golfer continues his red hot play as he was able to beat John Rahm one-up in the championship round of the Dell Match Play.

Johnson looked to be in complete control of the championship match when he was up five after eight holes, but Rahm slowly chipped away at the lead. The young phenom from Arizona State University fought hard against Johnson but fell just short.

Johnson won the Genesis Open at Torrey Pines, won the WGC-Mexico Championship and now can add the WGC- Dell Match Play to his resume.

Ever since his win at the U.S Open last year, Johnson has been the best player on tour. Guys like Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas and Hideki Matsuyama have played well, but none of them have played to the level that Johnson has played.

In between his U.S. Open victory last year, and his three victories early this year, the Coastal Carolina alum has two other victories, at the WGC- Bridgestone Invitational, the BMW Championship and has another six top ten finishes.

With The Masters officially less than two weeks, Johnson has to be thrilled about the way he is playing. He has to be a favorite now to win it, regardless of how great Spieth’s history has been there.

Before The Masters though is this weeks Shell Houston Open. Johnson will be participating in the event giving him a chance to gain even more momentum heading into Masters week. The field in the Houston Open does consist of plenty of talent, and you can look for a preview in the next couple of days.
