Dustin Johnson: Has played better than his score suggests this week

Dustin Johnson felt he got his just rewards for some consistent play this week when carding a 65 in the third round of the US PGA Championship.

The American recorded the round of the day in difficult conditions on the par 70 Oak Hill layout, seeing him charge up the leaderboard and on the fringes of contention at -2.

Johnson had been three over par at halfway but admitted the early conditions played into his hands.

"I felt like I played a lot better than my score was for the first couple of days," said the Ryder Cup star.

"Today I hit it really well. I rolled the putter really well and just gave myself a lot of opportunities to make birdie.

"I thought it was playing pretty tough out there and I played really well today. I drove it well, drove it in the fairway and made some good putts.

"If this wind picks up, even par will be a good score, I think. You've just got to try to hit the fairways and get it on the green and get a look at birdie."
