(MEMPHIS) – Dustin Johnson is back in his spot as the world's top-ranked golfer, thanks to a dominant victory capped by an absolutely amazing hole-out for eagle. Johnson shot a 4-under 66 on Sunday, making the St. Jude Classic his second PGA Tour victory this year and 18th of his career to take back the No. 1 ranking he held for 64 straight weeks before falling to No. 2 behind Justin Thomas a month ago. Johnson won the event for the second time, finishing with the eagle, three birdies and a bogey for a 19-under 261 total. Andrew Putnam started the final round with a share of the lead for the first time in his career. He shot 72 and finished at 13 under. Johnson turned in the lowest score under par by a winner here since David Toms at 20 under in 2003, before the course was redesigned dropping par from 71 to 70 after the 2004 tournament. Nobody has ever won on the PGA Tour and followed by winning the U.S. Open. The way Johnson is playing, he sees no reason that he couldn't be the first. Topping his walk-off eagle won't be easy. In the intermediate rough to the right of the fairway, Johnson hit 9-iron and watched as the ball bounced twice before rolling into the cup to bring fans to their feet. Johnson said he couldn't tell if the ball went in for a few seconds.
