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

Johnson knows what he wants.

"I have high expectations going in every week", Johnson said.

After a slow start Sunday, Johnson made two birdies on the back nine to cruise to victory.

He finished bogey-free on the day and one shot back of his personal best on Tour, a 9-under 61 at the Wyndham Championship in 2015. He was at 7 under. The best U.S. Open finish by a victor of the St. Jude in the same year was a tie for third by Fred Couples in 1993, when the event was conducted two weeks before the Open.

Two-time defending champ Daniel Berger (71-141) missed the cut.

The win ensures Johnson will return to the top of the rankings as the golf world prepares for the second major of the season at next week's US Open at Shinnecock Hills, New York.

"It was nice to be back in the hunt, to get the lead and to get the juices flowing a little bit", Johnson said. The way Johnson's playing, he sees no reason why he couldn't be the first. "I just need to go out there and have a good mind-set and just get ready for the weekend for the final couple of groups".

Last week, he tied for eighth in the Memorial and followed with a victory in Memphis.

On the 196-yard par-3 fourth, Bryan's tee shot went 193 yards to the fringe and his chip went 21 yards to the green where he rolled a two-putt for bogey.

"It was a very good decision for me to come here and play and keep my game really sharp", he said.
