Dustin Johnson fired a three-under-par 67 to claim a one-shot victory at the Travelers Championship and keep his tournament win-streak alive on Sunday.
Former world number one Johnson bagged his first tournament win since February 2019 after a closing three-under-par 67 at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut.
Johnson, who started the day two shots adrift of third round leader Brendon Todd after a brilliant 61 on Saturday, held his nerve after a late wobble following a weather delay.
The victory means Johnson has now won at least one tournament in each of the 13 seasons he has been on the PGA Tour, a feat matched only by an elite group of players that includes Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Lee Trevino and Tiger Woods.
"Obviously it's a great streak and any time your mentioned with those names it's good," said Johnson, who finished on 19 under, one clear of Kevin Streelman.
"I'm proud of myself for continuing the streak, and I want to keep it going, but it was a long time between wins — hopefully it won't be as long until the next one.
Although the tournament was played without spectators because of the coronavirus, Johnson admitted he had been nervous after a weather delay with three holes remaining.
It was the second triumph of the year for Simpson, who won at Phoenix in February, and it came after a storm delay of two hours and 47 minutes left players racing to finish before darkness.
