Dustin Johnson doesn’t hit the ball too far, says Dustin Johnson

Published

Dustin Johnson, as the top-ranked golfer in the world, has a voice in all things golf related, including the distance debate.

Even though he averages 310 yards off the tee, DJ said he doesn’t believe his distance is excessive.

“I don’t think I hit it too far. Yeah, there’s occasions where you get downwind, downhill on firm ground and the ball goes a long way. Walk around here. When you’ve got a ball straight into the wind, the golf ball ain’t going that far. I definitely don’t hit it too far and the game is not easy, that’s for sure. I don’t know what to say to them except maybe go watch some golf shots.”

Johnson’s remarks are a furthering of the sentiment he expressed during the Abu Dhabi championship in January.

“It’s not like we are dominating golf courses…When was the last time you saw someone make the game too easy? I don’t really understand what all the debate is about because it doesn’t matter how far it goes; it is about getting it in the hole.”

While this may be true, the crux of the distance debate isn’t that players are shooting 18 under par every round, so focusing on the scoring element is something of a red herring, most rollback proponents would say.

And considering Johnson is the best golfer in the world with the current ball and equipment restrictions, it’s difficult to think he’d advocate for a change. I mean, would you? This isn’t to say he’s right or wrong, but rather, he wouldn’t be acting in his own interest by advocating for change.

What do you think about Johnson’s remarks, GolfWRX members? Significant in this period of review regarding distance or not so much?

    For a guy who has been working out for, lets say conservatively, 16 years; and has dedicated his life to golf, I’d say he’s hitting it just how far he should be. With all that hard work he deserves that distance.

    This also just in: doctors don’t think they make too much money.

    C’mon DJ. You hit the ball too far. The only reason it hasn’t completely altered the scoring is we keep expanding courses to ridiculous lengths that are alienating the weekend golfer.

    DJ saying that he isn’t a long player is like hearing Warren Buffet saying he isn’t rich.
