Here's what Dustin Johnson said -- and didn't say -- in his first press conference since his U.S. Open loss

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland -- Sitting through a press conference with a player like Dustin Johnson reminds me a lot of watching other people play chess. I know that something meaningful is happening, on levels I can barely understand, but for the most part it's very dull, and if you're not paying close attention, you'll miss the moment when something actually happens. It's not in Johnson's personality to reveal anything about himself even if he wants to, and to make matters worse, he never wants to. Considering that dynamic, I've struck what I consider a very fair compromise: He doesn't say anything, and I don't go.
