Golf-Johnson says experience will be key to capturing PGA Championship

SAN FRANCISCO — American Dustin Johnson said the experience he has gained from pressure-packed major tournaments will give him a leg up when he tees off at the PGA Championship on Sunday.

Johnson played a complete game to card a five-under-par 65 at TPC Harding Park on Saturday to take a one-stroke lead heading into the final 18 holes with the leaderboard stacked with young talent.

The 36-year-old, who is playing in his 13th season on the PGA Tour, won the 2016 U.S. Open and has finished second or tied for second at all three other majors. The former world number one has also notched 21 PGA Tour victories.

“I’ve been in contention a lot, and I’ve got it done a lot of times,” he told reporters. “Tomorrow, it’s no different. I’m going to have to play good golf if I want to win.”

Johnson holds a one-stroke lead over his countrymen Scottie Scheffler and Cameron Champ. Both are vying for their first major title, while Scheffler is also eyeing his first win at a PGA Tour event.
