Dustin Johnson earned his 19th PGA Tour victory Sunday at the RBC Canadian Open, defeating Whee Kim and Byeong Hun An by three shots.
Johnson finished the week 23 under, firing all four rounds in the 60s. Despite a lengthy rain delay, he shot a 6-under 66 Sunday to break out of a four-way tie atop the leaderboard to start the final round and win for the third time this season.
With his victory this week, Johnson has now won at least three PGA Tour events in three straight seasons.
