Brooks Koepka, Jordan Spieth, Bryson DeChambeau, Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, and all other pro golfers look up to one man in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Dustin Johnson has held the top spot for more than 120 weeks. The only two players who have held the spot longer are Greg Norman and Tiger Woods.

The professional golfer has amped up his game in recent years. His long drive and smooth swing are big reasons why. Johnson’s main strength is consistency. In 2020, he won four tournaments in a span of five months.

Regularly finishing near the top of the leaderboard brings home a large chunk of the purse.
