Dustin Johnson misses hole-in-one on par 4 by inches

Dustin Johnson misses hole-in-one on par 4 by inches

Johnson holds the 54-hole lead for the first time since the HSBC Champions in Shanghai in October. He was making his third appearance after T3 in 2015 and solo 2nd a year ago, and his third official start of the season.

Johnson came to the hole one shot behind leader Brian Harman. Matsuyama conjured eight (of 15) fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation, gaining 2.497 strokes approaching-the-green, now No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 6.964.

And, just as commentator Frank Nobilo suggested the caddie should "take the flag out", he did just that as Johnson's ball missed the hole by a few inches before rolling off the back of the green. Matsuyama posted 1.625 putts per GIR and 1.163 SG: Putting, taking 28 total putts. There he led by six through three rounds, but stumbled to a closing round 77 to finish tied for second behind Justin Rose.

Spain's Jon Rahm was alone in third, matching the best round of the day with a 66 for 207.

Dufner shot a four-under 69 on Saturday with two birdies in his last four holes, meanwhile, Jordan Spieth is eight shots off the pace after his third-round 70. Kind of started off slowly, a bunch of pars, but it was nice to birdie nine.

"Great round. Bogey-free", Rahm said after his round.
