DJ comes home for junior tourney, groundbreaking

Dustin Johnson returned to TPC Myrtle Beach to break ground on the state-of-the-art Dustin Johnson Golf Performance Center, reinforcing the World No. 1’s commitment to giving back to the game. Construction on the 3,100-square foot building will be complete by Memorial Day, and the facility will serve as the home for the Dustin Johnson Golf School and the Dustin Johnson Foundation.

“To bring this Performance Center to my hometown and be able to give golfers a competitive edge is exciting,” said Johnson, a 17-time PGA TOUR winner and major champion. “We haven’t held anything back in the design because we want to give the Golf School students and Foundation scholars the opportunity to learn the game, no matter what level they are when they start here. That’s important to me, and it’s also important that they get the very best when they’re learning.”

“When the Dustin Johnson Golf Performance Center is complete, we will be able to teach every day in a facility that was built with one thing in mind: helping golfers improve their game,” said Allen Terrell, Director of Coaching at the Dustin Johnson Golf School. “Dustin’s commitment to the Golf School has been unwavering since we started, and with his support, all of the golfers will have access to the same technology and fundamentals that he uses while competing on TOUR. We couldn’t be more excited about showcasing them within our new state-of-the-art facility.”

“Founders Group International is thrilled to have TPC Myrtle Beach as the home of the Dustin Johnson Golf School,” said Steve Mays, President of Founders Group International. “Dustin is the No. 1 player in the world, Allen is one of the game’s leading instructors, and TPC Myrtle Beach is a TOUR-quality facility, so it’s an ideal partnership. We look forward to helping the Dustin Johnson Golf School grow into one of the game’s premier instructional facilities.”

The new building will have three indoor hitting bays, three covered hitting areas, a fitness center, and room to provide instructional seminars. The Performance Center will also feature TrackMan, AimPoint and MySwing 3D Technology, allowing students to better understand their game.

The groundbreaking ceremony coincided with the beginning of the 3rd annual Dustin Johnson World Junior Golf Championship, allowing Johnson to spend time with the game’s next generation of players as well.

The Dustin Johnson Golf School, a member of the Golf Channel Academy, is one of the game’s fastest rising instructional programs. With Johnson’s support and Terrell’s expertise – he has coached 12 PGA TOUR and European Tour players and more than 20 All-Americans – the school, which caters to players of all ability levels, has attracted golfers from across the globe.

The Dustin Johnson Foundation was founded with the primary focus of promoting and supporting youth and college golf programs, reflecting Johnson’s appreciation for the programs he credits for his development.
