Johnson claims his recent upsurge in for has been down to performing better on the greens. "I feel like my game is where it has been all year. I just haven't been putting quite as well as I'd like. The last couple of weeks, I just putted a little better."
2015 champion Shane Lowry shot his only under-par round of the week during the final round. The Offaly native finished 12 shots behind Johnson in a tie for 36th place on +6.
