Dustin Johnson reclaims No. 1 ranking with St. Jude win

Dustin Johnson holes out for eagle at 18 trounces field at Fed Ex St Jude

Johnson finished the tournament with a four-round aggregate 261, 19 under par.

Having held a share of a five-shot lead with Andrew Putnam heading in to the final round, DJ looked in a good position to claim his second title of the year as his playing partner double bogeyed the first hole to hand Johnson a two-shot advantage. Defending U.S. Open champ Brooks Koepka (69) was at 5 under, and Phil Mickelson (70) was at 4 under.

Dustin Johnson is the hot favourite for the US Open after he emphatically reclaimed the world No.1 ranking. He then put the finishing touches on his ninth win over the past two seasons with birdies on the 13th and 16th.

"Statistically, you feel like you should have made holes in one all the time out here as much as you play but they don't come around very often", the 2009 British Open champion said. "I'm going to have to play a lot like I did this week if I want to win next week".

Johnson used his nine-iron on the last hole and promptly sunk a shot from the fairway for an eagle. "I hit a lot of good shots coming in".

"By the reaction from the crowd, I thought it might have gone in, but I couldn't see it so it was kind of tough", said Johnson after shooting 66.

Yokomine, the victor of 23 events on the Japan LPGA Tour, flirted with a 59 but parred the par-5 18th for a 61 to tie the course record.

Putnam, who has never won on the PGA Tour, matched the best round of his short career on Saturday and was delighted talking to the media after his round. "It's one of those days you like to have".

Notes: Putnam has just one bogey through two rounds. He shot a 79 in the first round.

World No. 2 Dustin Johnson delivered a scorching final nine holes to shoot 7-under-par 63 on Friday and take a one-stroke lead at 10-under 130 after the second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic in Memphis, Tenn. 15, 16 and 17, but a hiccup at the last hole dropped him to 5 under. And from that moment on, Johnson's second title of 2018 was never in doubt.

He holed out for eagle from 170 yards on the final hole to seal an emphatic six-stroke victory at the St. Jude Classic.
