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.

DES MOINES, Iowa - Tom Lehman shot a 7-under 65 to take a two-shot lead into the final round of the PGA Tour Champions' Principal Charity Classic.

He's now won nine PGA Tour events since June 2016. Instead, he rolled in the putt to keep his lead, and birdied the 13th to increase it to three.

Putnam, a two-time victor on the Web.com Tour, had only one bogey through his first three rounds. He shot a 79 in the first round. 15, 16 and 17, but a hiccup at the last hole dropped him to 5 under.

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