Dustin Johnson on His Practice Round With Tiger Woods, Pebble Beach and His Game
By Stephanie Wei under General

Thanks to the nice folks over at TaylorMade, I chatted with Dustin Johnson, who won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am the past two years, at Poppy Hills Golf Course, where he was braving a two-hour satellite media marathon. Poor guy had to answer the same questions over and over again — I felt like I was listening to him on loop.

Naturally, I tried to mix it up a bit toward the end of our talk and I think it may have caught him off-guard. The look on his face screamed, “Wait, what? Non-golf questions? WTF?” What can I say, I just enjoy creating awkward moments.

Check out the video interview after the jump.


Oh, and the nickname Dustin was so obviously withholding from me (because he was presumably embarrassed)?

His friends in college called him “DJ Styles.” What’s so bad about that? Good luck this week!
