1 with epic walk-off eagle

1 with epic walk-off eagle

Dustin Johnson wants to sharpen his game for the U.S. Open. Johnson said. "I don't know why it hasn't happened but the US Open is a tough, tough place to go and win".

CHASING: Well, there's really nobody technically chasing as Johnson and Putnam are five in front of everybody else.

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.

Brooks Koepka, a week before defending his U.S. Open title, carded 69 to slip five strokes behind, while Phil Mickelson (70) fell six adrift.

Johnson will now head to NY to begin his search for a second major championship at the U.S. Open hosted by Shinnecock Hills.

NOTES: Johnson was the first on tour to win by holing out from off the green since Jordan Spieth at the 2017 Travelers Championship.

Dustin Johnson is back in his spot as the world's top-ranked golfer thanks to a dominant victory capped by an absolutely wonderful hole-out for eagle. Teeing off in the afternoon when the wind was stronger, Nordqvist closed her bogey-free round with a birdie on the par-5 ninth.

Certainly a pair of co-leaders on different parts of the spectrum, but it could lead to an exciting Sunday.

Investors are also concerned about the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement, which Trump has threatened to terminate. Ironically, Trump was expected to receive a far warmer reception from Kim Jong Un than from US allies in the West.

"Just wanted to play, stay sharp", Johnson said.

Johnson finished with a flourish when his 171-yard second shot on the par-four 18th found the bottom of the cup, sending the crowd at the TPC Southwind in Memphis into a frenzy on a sweltering day.

"When you're around or in the lead you can definitely feel the pressure but I like it", Johnson, 33, said. "I'm proud of the way I played, the way I handled it".

"It obviously went pretty well", said Snedeker, the 2012 FedExCup champ.

Notes: Putnam has just one bogey through two rounds.

Dustin Johnson has set his sights on making US Open history after returning to world No 1 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

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