Dustin Johnson returns to the Grand Strand

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) - Dustin Johnson, the eighth ranked golfer in the current World Golf Rankings, returned to Myrtle Beach on Monday to help give back to the community where he learned to hone his skills. 

Johnson gave a private clinic for members of the Dustin Johnson Golf School at TPC Myrtle Beach. It's also just the beginning of multiple things Johnson would like to do with coach Allen Terrell. 

"Just to have my name on a golf school is great, especially at a golf course where I kinda grew up playing," said Johnson, who is a Coastal Carolina alum. "TPC Myrtle Beach, (it's) a special place for me and, we're working on right now some plans for a building to go up, and to make it a little more formal."

Additionally, the inaugural Dustin Johnson World Junior Golf Championship will be played from February 13-15 at TPC Myrtle Beach.

"I kind of grew up here playing golf," Johnson said. "I went seven, eight years here and played on tour and thought  we have a good practice facility here and I think that's special for up and coming junior players to have a good practice facility and being able to play a challenging golf course."
