Dustin Johnson cards 67, hopes game will 'kick in to good form' as majors loom

Winless since his 2020 November Masters triumph, Dustin Johnson showed signs that his game is returning to form on Day 1 of the AT&T Byron Nelson.

Johnson was 5 under for his first nine holes, his lowest opening-nine score this year on Tour. However, he carded four bogeys on the back, but matched those with four birdies to finish with an opening 5-under 67, seven shots off Sebastián Muñoz's lead after Round 1.

"Swinging well," Johnson said. "Obviously few mistakes, but more — one was a three-putt. Couple iron shots just missing wrong side. Other than that, I played well, drove it good, hit a lot of really nice iron shots and rolled the putter pretty well.
