UPDATE NO. 12 (9:50 p.m. ET): It was simply DJ’s week…

What a performance, Dustin!

UPDATE NO. 11 (9:20 p.m. ET): DJ birdied 16 to move to 24 under. He’s par 17 to end a three-straight-birdies run. But he leads by eight over Jon Rahm heading to the 18th tee.

UPDATE NO. 10 (8:57 p.m. ET): DJ rolls in a 4-footer at the par-5 15th for birdie. He’s now 23 under and eight shots ahead of Rahm. This is looking crazy easy.

UPDATE NO. 9 (8:48 p.m. ET): DJ drives the par-4 14th and makes a simple birdie. He’s now 22 under and leads by seven over Jon Rahm. Here’s a look at the top of the leaderboard, but it’s clearly Johnson’s tournament as the final holes commence.

UPDATE NO. 8 (8:30 p.m. ET): Dustin Johnson is freaking insane.

He nearly aces a par 4 FOR A SECOND STRAIGHT DAY. It leads to an eagle on the par-4 12th FOR A SECOND STRAIGHT DAY.

Here’s the footage of Johnson coming back hard from a bogey at the 11th and moving seven ahead at 21 under.

UPDATE NO. 7 (7:41 p.m. ET): Dustin Johnson birdies No. 9 to move to 20 under. He now has a six-shot lead heading to the back nine.

UPDATE NO. 6 (7:15 p.m. ET): Justin Thomas had a rough title defense, but he at least closes well. With his dad on the bag, Thomas eagles 18 to fire a 6-under 67 on Sunday. It jumps him to 4 under overall and from solo 30th to a tie for 22nd.

UPDATE NO. 5 (7:01 p.m. ET): DJ is looking untouchable.

The World No. 1 birdies Nos. 5 and 6 to move to 19 under and he now has a five-shot lead over Brian Harman and Jon Rahm. This one could be a runaway.

UPDATE NO. 4 (6:35 p.m. ET): Johnson birdies No. 3 while Harman bogeys it. That gives DJ a four-shot lead at 17 under.

UPDATE NO. 3 (5:57 p.m. ET): Dustin Johnson is off! He pars the first and remains two ahead at 16 under. Here’s the current leaderboard…

UPDATE NO. 2 (5:25 p.m. ET): Jordan Spieth is off in the final round. He’s begun with three straight pars to remain 8 under. He’s eight back and tied for 10th.

UPDATE NO. 1 (4:21 p.m. ET): Final-round play is underway. The contenders won’t be off for some time. The final group is still roughly 80 minutes away. Here’s the early progress.
