New No. 1? DJ doesn't care to know scenario

LOS ANGELES – Dustin Johnson doesn’t know the scenario that could see him leave Riviera Country Club the No. 1 player in the world. He also doesn’t care.

While the intrigue surrounding the top spot in the Official World Golf Ranking is compelling in some circles, Johnson has always thought that the only way to achieve any goal is to play well, and he’s certainly delivering on that front this week at the Genesis Open.

Johnson, who has two runner-up finishes at Riviera, finished his weather-delayed second round Saturday afternoon with a 5-under 66 that vaulted him into the lead with a marathon Sunday on tap. If he wins the L.A. stop, and current world No. 1 Jason Day finishes outside the top 3, Johnson would move to No. 1 in the world.

“I’m not there yet. I don’t really worry about that,” said Johnson, who birdied three of his final four holes, making a 20-footer for birdie at the last. “I want to put myself in a position to win this golf tournament. That’s really all I care about is what it takes to get it done here. The rest of the stuff, the points and world golf rankings, I would like to get there, but I’m not worried about it.”

Off the golf course, Johnson’s fiancée Paulina Gretzky announced via social media early Saturday that she was expecting the couple’s second child.

“We’re very excited about both babies,” Johnson said.
