The PGA Tour passed through Chicago this weekend, with suburban Lemont's Cog Hill hosting the BMW Championship -- formerly the Western Open. After four days of golf, Dustin Johnson finished at nine under par and took home the J.K. Wadley trophy and $1.35 million. Johnson's win was redemption after his rules gaffe at the PGA Championship a month ago cost him a major title.
Johnson shot a 69 on Sunday, making up made up a three-shot deficit against second place finisher Paul Casey on the back nine. Ryan Moore, who held the tourney lead after 54 holes, and Matt Kuchar, who was tied with Johnson heading into Sunday's action, both failed to break par. Defending champion Tiger Woods shot one under par for the weekend and finished tied for 15th place.
