Dustin Johnson back to No. 1 after St. Jude Classic win

Dustin Johnson Reclaims No. 1 Ranking with Win in Memphis Dustin Johnson Reclaims No. 1 Ranking with Win in Memphis

Johnson might not have been at his imperious best for much of the final day, but he brought the house down with the shot of the week by holing his second shot from 171 yards at the 72nd hole.

Johnson was already the favorite to win his second national championship in three years, but following this dominant showing he will inevitably be an even hotter fancy at Shinnecock Hills.

"What a cool way to end the day to hole that shot on 18", Johnson said. "I knew coming in this week I was swinging really well and had a lot of confidence in the game". "I'm proud of the way I played, the way I handled it".

The shot emphatically closed out his 18th career PGA Tour victory and took him back to the World No. 1 spot he owned for 64 straight weeks until being displaced by Justin Thomas last month.

Preparing for the US Open starting later this week, Johnson launched his claim for the Classic title early with a par on the first hole, while playing partner Putnam made a double-bogey.

Although Putnam went bogey free for the final 13 holes, he was unable to match Johnson's brilliance and finished on 13 under par. He went 67, 63 and 65 before wrapping up a final round that felt nearly like a practice round with the only question remaining how low Johnson would go until his final dramatic shot. Stewart Cink and Richy Werenski tied for fourth at eight under par.

"I feel like my game is in good shape", he said.
