Johnson not interested in ranking scenarios

Dustin Johnson holds a one-shot lead heading into what promises to be a crazy Sunday at the Genesis Open, where he will hopefully get 36 holes finished.

Rain has been problematic this week, forcing Johnson to complete just two rounds through Saturday, but the PGA Tour will try to finish all four rounds by sundown on Sunday.

Johnson, who has two runner-up finishes at this event but no wins, has a chance to grab the number one spot on the world rankings. Just don't ask him how it can happen.

"I'm not there yet. I don't really worry about that," Johnson told Golf Channel.

"I want to put myself in a position to win this golf tournament. That's really all I care about is what it takes to get it done here.

"The rest of the stuff, the points and world golf rankings, I would like to get there, but I'm not worried about it."

If Johnson wins and Jason Day, who is currently tied for 53rd at one under, finishes outside the top three, then Johnson will be the world's new top-ranked golfer.
