Dustin Johnson is a PGA tournament champion again after a 15-month drought.

The Dutch Fork High School graduate won the Travelers Championship Sunday to extend his career-long season victory streak to 13. Johnson won the tournament by one stroke over Kevin Streelman at TPC River Highlands.

"I'm definitely proud of myself for continuing the streak and I want to keep it going," Johnson said. "It was a long time between wins though, and so hopefully it won't be that long for the next one."

Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus each won in 17 consecutive years. Johnson did not in 2014, but is given credit for winning in the 2013-14 season from his victory in the fall of 2013 in Shanghai. The TOUR changed to a wraparound season in 2013.

He finished at 19-under 261 for his 21st PGA TOUR title Sunday.
