February 5, 2010 |  2:31 pm

Dustin Johnson, playing in the pouring rain at Riviera Country Club, not only is holding on to his first-round lead at the Northern Trust Open, he's doing it in style.

Johnson had a hole-in-one on the par-three, 199-yard sixth hole. He'd already birdied the first and fourth holes and is four-under on his round so far today through six holes and 11-under for the tournament, a shot ahead of 2009 tournament runner-up Steve Stricker. Johnson used an eight-iron on his hole-in-one.
