Dustin Johnson wins Travelers Championship, Kyle Jones won Korn Ferry Tour

CROMWELL, Conn. (AP) — Dustin Johnson won the Travelers Championship on Sunday to end a long drought and extend his career-long season victory streak to 13.

Johnson closed with a 3-under 67 for a one-stroke victory over Kevin Streelman at fan-free TPC River Highlands. Johnson last won in Mexico City in March 2019.

Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus each won in 17 consecutive years. Johnson failed to win in 2014, but is given credit for winning in the 2013-14 season from his victory in the fall of 2013 in Shanghai. The tour changed to a wraparound season in 2013.

Johnson tapped in for par on the par-4 18th, raised his ball to acknowledge the smattering of applause from course workers and officials with no fans allowed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

He finished at 19-under 261 for his 21st PGA Tour title.

Streelman also shot 67.

Mackenzie Hughes, who shot a first-round 60, had a 67 to tie for third with 23-year-old Will Gordon at 17 under. Gordon, who had no status on either the PGA Tour or the Korn Ferry Tour, had seven birdies in a 64. He earned a special temporary card and unlimited exemptions for the rest of the season.

Korn Ferry Tour
FARMINGTON, Utah (AP) — Kyle Jones won the Utah Championship for his first Korn Ferry Tour title, beating
Paul Haley II with a 6-foot birdie putt on the second playoff hole at Oakridge Country Club.

Daniel Summerhays, the 36-year-old Utah player making his final start as a touring professional, was eliminated with a bogey on the first extra hole after shooting a 9-under 62 in regulation.

Hours after Summerhays finished, Jones and Haley completed matching 68s to force the playoff at 20 under.
Will Zalatoris was a stroke back after a 66.

Dylan Wu and Martin Piller each shot 64 to match Ollie Schniederjans (66) at 18 under.
