Dustin Johnson wins St. Jude Classic with an incredible walk-off eagle

Dustin Johnson wins St. Jude Classic with an incredible walk-off eagle

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

Dustin Johnson wants to sharpen his game for the U.S. Open.

"I feel like I'm swinging really well". Putnam added a birdie on the seventh, but it wasn't enough to catch Johnson.

Cook's 5 under on Sunday tied him with Phil Mickelson and Tim Herron for the best scores of the final round and moved him up the leaderboard into a tie for sixth.

Johnson will be among the favourites to win the U.S. Open starting on Thursday at the Shinnecock Hills Golf Course in NY and he is confident of repeating his 2016 victory in the year's second major.

Johnson faces a battle to keep hold of the berth at the season's second major, with Thomas and England's Justin Rose intent on usurping him.

Johnson will be traveling light to Long Island, unburdened by anything remotely negative that might impair his ability to win a second U.S. Open.


"I haven't seen the golf course yet but I'll go there tomorrow and get 18 holes in and we'll see".

"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. "For me, playing the way I did all week, playing the way I did today knowing everything that was on the line, gives me a lot of confidence going into next week".

"I know what it takes", he said.

"I really like this golf course because you have to focus on every shot".

At the 445-yard par-4 sixth, Bryan got on in 2 and missed his par putt from 4 feet, finishing with a 3-putt bogey.

Johnson finished with a flourish when his 171-yard second shot on the par-four 18th found the bottom of the cup, sending the crowd at the TPC Southwind in Memphis into a frenzy on a sweltering day. He holed out from the right front bunker for birdie on the par-5 No. 16.

He had won his only two previous starts at the event, the only PGA Tour wins of his career. And from that moment on, Johnson's second title of 2018 was never in doubt.
