"The last couple years, I've done a little bit better and I feel like I've had a chance".
Johnson is aware that weather could become a factor this week.
Storms are predicted to end overnight before gusting breezes of more than 20 miles per hour (32 kph) and cool temperatures move into the area Thursday and Friday, set to play havoc with the world's greatest shotmakers.
