Dustin Johnson back to golf, back to winning

DORAL, Fla. (AP) - A month after he returned from his curious leave of absence, Dustin Johnson was posing with another trophy.

In a power show Sunday on the Blue Monster at Doral, Johnson was flawless on the back nine and closed with a 3-under 69 to win the Cadillac Championship for his second World Golf Championship.

Johnson took advantage of a collapse by J.B. Holmes, who lost a five-shot lead and closed with a 75 to finish one shot behind. Masters champion Bubba Watson made three bogeys on the back nine and shot 71 to finish two shots behind.

Johnson won for the ninth time in his PGA Tour career.

He returned from a six-month break last month to seek help for what he described as personal challenges.
