Dustin Johnson Reclaims No. 1 Ranking with Win in Memphis

A two-time victor on the Web.com Tour, Putnam birdied No. 18 to tie up Johnson once again after a bogey-free round.

Johnson has been dominant in multiple aspects of his game this season.

"I feel like I'm playing really well", said Johnson, who lost the number one ranking to Justin Thomas last month after reigning for 64 straight weeks.

Johnson opened with a birdie at the 10th.

It's been just two years since Johnson claimed his first major title at the 2016 U.S. Open, and he enters next week's version at Shinnecock Hills in great form. And Phil Mickelson picked up some momentum heading into the U.S. Open with a Sunday 65 and a T-12 finish.

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

The win also vaults Johnson to the new World No. 1. "I've got a lot of control of my golf ball and that's what you're looking for going into any week, but yeah, especially going into [Sunday] and then obviously next week". I know if I can drive it in the fairway that I'm going to give myself a good look for birdie.

The report states that a "very well-informed source" has told them that he has verbally agreed to join the Camp Nou club. However, those figures will return to the previous numbers next month. "The decision will be made at the right time".

Johnson shot 4-under par in the final round to secure his second win on the PGA Tour this year and the 18th of his career. I'm hitting my irons well, and my wedges are really good.

"I've got a lot of confidence in the golf game right now", he said on Saturday.

Putnam was bogey free in his round of 64 and although a previous member of the PGA Tour in 2015 he was required to return to the Web.Com Tour and now appears to be finding his feet at this level. "It's one of those days you like to have".

World number two Dustin Johnson shot a superb second round of 63 to take the halfway lead at the FedEx St Jude Classic on 10 under par.

Putnam, a two-time victor on the Web.com Tour, had only one bogey through his first three rounds.

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