Johnson content with position


Dustin Johnson insists he is happy with where he is at despite slipping out of the lead at the U.S. Open.

The American is two over through 13 holes in his third round at Oakmont, sitting at two under overall to be three shots behind leader Shane Lowry.

Johnson held the 36-hole lead as he looks set to again challenge for a maiden major title, already with 11 top-10 finishes to his name.

Despite that, the 31-year-old is content with where he is at heading into Sunday.

"It was okay. Felt like I hit a lot of good putts that didn't go in the hole, just burning the edges. A few lip-outs," Johnson said.

"But, I mean, it's this golf course. It's tough to make putts on it. I'm still feeling good about where I'm at - a lot of golf to go. Golf swing feels good. So I'm happy with where I'm at."

Johnson hopes he can get some luck to finish the tournament, saying he was happy with the way he was putting - albeit without much luck.

"I'm giving myself opportunities. Feel like I'm hitting my putts on my line with the correct speed. So, I mean, at some point, they will start to go in," he said.

"Hopefully, that's tomorrow."
