DJ Kong Kong Recap

It was a true team effort for 4Aces Golf Club at LIV Golf Hong Kong. When the captain was grinding to get under par during the first two rounds, his teammates stepped up. When the final round arrived, it was vice versa.

Dustin Johnson shot a remarkable 7-under 63 in tough scoring conditions on Sunday to tie the lowest round of the day and finished T-21. It was a flawless round that included an eagle, five birdies and no bogeys in breezy and wet conditions. The short, tight course with plenty of water trouble isn’t suited for long hitters, but Johnson, one of the game’s biggest mashers, showed his ability to dial it down and score.

It was a nice jolt as he surged up the leaderboard after two consecutive rounds of even par to start the week. The two-time major champion now stands in third place in the season-long individual standings and remains one of the top players to watch week in and week out to not only get on the podium but hoist a piece of hardware.

His teammates came out hot during the first two days and were a big reason why 4Aces GC finished tied for seventh on the team leaderboard. Harold Varner III came out hot and led the team during Rounds 1 and 2, combining to go 10-under par before a 1-over 71 on Sunday, giving him a tie for 15th place, his best finish of the season. Varner III only had one bogey on Friday and Saturday.

2018 Masters champion Patrick Reed showed his legendary consistency and was the only team member to shoot under par all three days. He finished 5 under for the week and had only four bogeys all week.

Pat Perez continues to do his part, this time coming out fast when his team needed him most. He had his team’s best score in Round 2, a 5-under 65, and was second only to Varner III in scoring on his team through two rounds.

The team will have a break before teeing it up again at LIV Golf Miami from April 5-7 at Trump National Doral.
