Dustin Johnson has claimed his third LIV Golf title by winning the Las Vegas Invitational. He finished one shot ahead of his closest competitors after birdying three of the last six holes. The tournament was played in cold and windy conditions, but Johnson persevered to top the leaderboard at 12 under and claim the $4 million prize money.
Talor Gooch and Peter Uihlein finished second at 11 under, with Matthew Wolff one shot behind them. Paul Casey, Graeme McDowell, and Jason Kokrak tied for fifth at eight under. Jon Rahm followed closely behind at fourth place on the leaderboard.
Johnson commented on his victory, saying “It’s a great win. I knew it was going to be tough with the conditions.” He acknowledged the difficulty of playing against a group of skilled players right around the lead. Bryson DeChambeau shared the 36-hole lead with Johnson, but a final-round four-over-par 74 led to him finishing tied for ninth at seven under.
Smash GC, consisting of Gooch, McDowell, Kokrak, and captain Brooks Koepka, took the team title on 33-under, seven shots ahead of Johnson’s 4Aces. This victory comes after Johnson’s first two LIV Golf titles in Boston in 2022 and Tulsa the year before.
