Final Money, Points: 2018 FedEx St. Jude Classic

Highlighted by a hole-out eagle on the 72nd hole, Dustin Johnson posted a final-round 66 to claim his second title of the season at the FedEx St Jude Classic.

Johnson entered the day tied for the lead with little-known Andrew Putnam at 15 under, and after the 29-year old journeyman made double bogey on the first hole, it was DJ’s tournament to win.

DJ cruised to even par on the out, but then played TPC Southwind’s inward-nine to 4-under par, highlighted by a final-hole dunk from 171 – turning what looked like a comfortable victory into a six-shot romp.

The South Carolina native finished his final day in Memphis with an eagle, three birdies, one bogey and 13 pars.

The win earned Johnson $1,188,000 and 500 FedExCup points, which moves him to No. 2 in the points standings behind only Justin Thomas (No. 1). The 33-year old also picked up 34 Official World Golf Rankings points to move back to No. 1 after a two-week stay at No. 2.

Putnam, meanwhile, took home a check for $712,800, along with 300 FedEx points and 21.6 OWGR points. It was the Pepperdine product’s biggest payday.
