Johnson yields to only one other long hitter


PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – Dustin Johnson isn’t the longest hitter in golf.

There’s one guy he believes is longer.

“[Alvaro) Quiros would probably be one of the only guys who hits it by me,” Johnson said after Saturday’s round at the U.S. Open.

Johnson (303.6 yards per drive) is second on the PGA Tour in driving distance this year, trailing Bubba Watson (304.5) by less than a yard per drive.

Quiros doesn’t play the PGA Tour enough to rank statistically, but he leads the European Tour in driving at 309.9 yards per drive.
