Here's a fun stat: Dustin Johnson ranked first in driving distance at Riviera for each of the four individual rounds this week.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Dustin Johnson on the math behind the world ranking: "I don't really understand it. But I can read the 1-2-3. That's all that matters."

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Dustin Johnson on winning vs. reaching No. 1: "Winning the golf tournament is most important. I wasn't thinking about my world ranking."

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Dustin Johnson on reaching No. 1 in the world: "Obviously, it's a great honor and it's just going to push me to continue to work harder."

Kevin Maguire Golf 

Some players have backed their way into the No. 1 world ranking. Others have done it sitting on their couch due to the mathematics of the system. Not Dustin Johnson. With eight of the top-10 players in the world coming into this week teeing it up at the Genesis Open, DJ stood head and shoulders above the rest, winning by 5 shots on Sunday. How did the other top-10 players do at Riviera Country Club this week? 1. Jason Day (T-64 ) 3. Dustin Johnson (1st) 5. Hideki Matsuyama (Missed Cut) 6. Jordan Spieth (T-22) 7. Adam Scott (T-11) 8. Justin Thomas (T-39) 9. Sergio Garcia (T-49) 10. Patrick Reed (T-59)

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

In the past nine months, Dustin Johnson has finished eighth or better in 14 of his 18 tournament starts. That's unbelievable consistency.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

That little boy's grandpa is Wayne Gretzky, his dad is Dustin Johnson and he's got light-up sneakers. Kid is living the good life already.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

It's finally official: Dustin Johnson is Genesis Open champion and becomes the 20th top-ranked player in the 31-year history of the ranking.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

The most underrated aspect of Dustin Johnson's game? Consistency. This win gives him titles in 10 consecutive PGA Tour seasons.

Jason Sobel ESPN Senior Writer 

It's official: With his victory at the Genesis Open, Dustin Johnson becomes the world's No. 1-ranked golfer for the first time, supplanting Jason Day. His win gives him titles in 10 consecutive PGA Tour seasons -- the longest current active streak.

Jason Sobel ESPN Senior Writer 

After 47 consecutive weeks atop the Official World Golf Ranking, Jason Day is going to lose his No. 1 spot once Dustin Johnson finished off his victory at the Genesis Open. As to whether he'd offer any advice to Johnson in dealing with the pressures of that position, Day simply said, "Whatever he's doing, he just need to keep doing it."

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Dustin Johnson just posted back-to-back bogeys, then made par on a par-5. I remember when he used to be really good.
