Winner’s Circle: DJ Captures the St. Jude Classic

Dustin Johnson holed out for eagle on the 18th hole to card a 4-under 66 and capture the 2018 FedEx St. Jude Classic at TPC Southwind.

Johnson finished at 19-under par, six shots clear of runner-up Andrew Putnam, who posted a 1-over 72 in the final round.

The victory was Johnson’s 18th career title, and second of the season. The 33-year old South Carolinian also took back the World No. 1 ranking from Justin Thomas, who gets downgraded to No. 2.
