Dustin Johnson on fire. Defending Champ taking control at Pebble Beach

Posted: Feb 13, 2010

The Defending Champion is pulling away from the field early in round 3 at the AT&T. Dustin Johnson started his day with an eagled #1 at Spyglass Hill and is 6 underpar through his first 8 holes. Now at 16 underpar for the Tournament, the 25 year old from Carolina owns a 4 stroke edge over Paul Goydos and 5 clear of several others including David Duval. It was a 6-way logjam at the top when play began, but Johnson has played his way to a comfortable cushion. The interview was following his Friday round.
