Athlon Counts Down the 30 Golfers to Watch for Majors Season

They’re the cream of the major championship crop, circa 2014 — the Athlon Major Championship Dream Team. Leading up to The Masters, we'll be unveiling Athlon Sports’ 30 players to watch for majors season, with commentary on each from the Golf Channel’s Brandel Chamblee.

No. 9: Dustin Johnson

Born: June 22, 1984, Columbia, S.C. | Career PGA Tour Wins: 8 | 2013 Wins (Worldwide): 1 | 2013 Earnings (PGA Tour): $2,963,214 (19th) World Ranking: 10

Brandel Chamblee's Take

Dustin Johnson has won eight times on the PGA tour before the age of 30 and in addition could've easily won two or three major championships. So obscene is his talent, he could easily end up in the Hall of Fame, but he is not higher on this list because he has historically underperformed his talent level, for a variety of reasons. Now that the game seems to have his full attention, he has ours.
