Country: United States.
World ranking: 19.
Worldwide wins: 7.
Best US Open performance: Tie for 8th at Pebble Beach in 2010.
US Open memory: Losing a three-shot lead at the 2010 U.S. Open with a triple bogey on the second hole and closing with an 82.
Backspin: Johnson has been MIA for so much of the year after winning at Kapalua. He played in the final group three times in a span of six majors and still has to be considered the most talented young American. But Johnson is known more these days for dating Paulina Gretzky than anything he has done on the course. Still, it takes a lot to distract him. His game can show up unannounced.(AP Photo/Darron Cummings)
