Dustin Johnson Reclaims No. 1 Ranking with Win in Memphis

Dustin Johnson gestures towards fans after finishing the ninth hole during the first round of the S. Jude Classic golf tournament in Memphis Tenn. Friday

Dustin Johnson gestures towards fans after finishing the ninth hole during the first round of the S. Jude Classic golf tournament in Memphis Tenn. Friday

Sunday's victory was the 18th PGA Tour win of Johnson's career, and his first since a triumph at the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii in January.

Courtesy of an outrageous eagle on the 18th, the big-hitting American cruised to a six-shot win at the St Jude Classic and ensured that the reign of countryman Justin Thomas amounted to only four weeks.

No player has followed success the week before the US Open with victory in the second men's major of the year, although Johnson is confident of breaking that record and winning the event for a second time.

"A lot of good things happened this week".

He holed out from 110 yards for eagle at the first and came within inches of repeating the feat at the next, settling for one of four birdies in a blistering second nine.

"I did win in 2016, so I know what it takes and I'm going to have to play a lot like I did this week if I want to win next week".

"I feel like my game is in good shape", he said. Johnson said he couldn't tell if the ball went in for a few seconds.

Shane Lowry ended the tournament three shots further back as he closed with a 70, while Padraig Harrington shot 71 and finished tied 56th on two-over.

"I haven't seen the golf course yet but I'll get in 18 holes tomorrow and go from there". "I felt like I handled myself better than my score looked".
