Dustin Johnson couldn’t make it to the 3M Open Weekend.

After a shocking early exit at the 3M Open, Dustin Johnson missed the opportunity to return to number one in the world rankings.

The latest leaderboard

Johnson could have surpassed Jon Rahm to become world number one after a strong showing at TPC Twin Cities. Johnson posted rounds of 72 and 70, respectively, in order not to make it into a non major for the first season.

Two-time major champion Johnson birdied his first eight holes but took two more shots out of a bunker while attempting to make a par on Friday. Johnson saved par by holing an extra 12-footer at the second.

Dustin Johnson was on the team at level par and 10 off the halfway lead

Johnson had to make a birdie at the final hole to be able to play in the Saturday tournament. Johnson made back-to-back pars on the 12th, but he was unable to do so.

Johnson stated that Johnson was not surprised by the winds gusts, which made playing a bit more difficult. Johnson said, “Got off with a good start. Just didn’t hit enough fairways in the back nine. “I tried to hold on.”

Ryan Armour and Adam Hadwin both scored matching 65s, moving to 10 under. Jhonattan Las was a bit behind the pace, alongside Roger Sloan and Chez Reavie.

Gary Woodland, Jimmy Walker, and Keegan Bradley were all major winners in their former careers. Louis Oosthuizen, the 54-hole leader at The Open last weekend, is one stroke behind after consecutive rounds of 68.

Rickie Fowler, overnight co-leader, followed his 64 in the opening round with a two-over 73. He fell five behind Luke Donald and Rafacabrera Bello. Sergio Garcia and Tom Lewis both made it to the cut mark of two under.

Robert MacIntyre of Scotland was unable to make the cut due to a final-hole error. He now has to wait anxiously to find out if he will remain in the top 50. This is the minimum requirement for entry to next week’s WGC/FedEx St Jude Invitational.
