One thing you can expect with Dustin Johnson is that he rarely answers questions with too much detail.

And at the US Open, this was no different. Johnson, 37, is currently sitting in a T-31 before moving a day after making the cut with a two-stroke to spare.
Johnson was the most famous LIV Golf player who made the cut at The Country Club in Brookline.
It was after Phil Mickelson was out fast after two rough days. “I wish I had played better,” said the 52-year-old Mickelson.
Other LIV Golf players to miss this weekend in Boston include:
- Sergio Garcia
- James Peyote
- Taylor Gotsch
- Kevin Na
- Branden Grace
- Sam Horsfield
- Louis Oosthuizen

The newly signed LIV Golf players, Bryson DeChambeau and Patrick Reed, made one stroke. The Englishman Richard Bland also succeeded in this.
Despite being a man of few words, some reporters tried to dive into the topic of LIV Golf again with DJ on Friday.
The first question was whether or not Johnson noticed any difference from fans this week.
Mickelson received fans with nearly a million likes. He also received some tones.
But for the most part, Lefty received a warm reception.
“No, the fans were great,” Johnson said. “Obviously this is a good sports city, and a lot of people are coming out and supporting the event.”
The next question was whether or not he had a sense of relief, now he’s signed on the dotted line with the LIV Golf.
Johnson offered: “Yes, it was obviously a difficult decision, but I feel very confident in the decision I made.”
Did Johnson feel any nervousness coming into the US Open from LIV Golf?
“No, not at all,” Johson said. “I was coming here, getting ready and getting ready to try and win the US Open.”
The final question was what Johnson thought about the timing of his move to the Saudi-funded league.
As you may remember, a statement was released on Johnson’s behalf in February confirming his loyalty to the PGA Tour.
Only for Johnson to change his mind at the last minute on the eve of the first LIV Golf event at the Centurion Club. Then Mickelson joined him.
Johnson is reportedly being paid $150 million for his commitment to LIV Golf.
He said, “I mean, it was kind of back and forth. If there was something, I wanted to go a hair laterbut it made sense for me to go when I did.”
