2018 St. Jude Classic grades: Dustin Johnson earns huge US Open momentum with win in Memphis

Dustin Johnson won his second event of the season and the 18th of his career in convincing fashion as he shot a 4-under 66 in the final round to get to 19 under overall and easily defeat Andrew Putnam by six (!) at the 2018 FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Johnson swatted away Putnam’s barely-feeble attempt at victory (he shot 72 next to D.J.) and collected the 18th victory of his career in the process. After playing defense over the first 12 holes, which Johnson played to even par as Putnam, who co-led after 54 holes, scuffled a bit and played them in 2 over.

Then Johnson unofficially ended the festivities on the 13th hole when he made birdie to go three clear of Putnam. He came home with another birdie and then an eagle at the last (more on that in a minute). The three-foot putt for birdie on No, 13 came on the other side of a 359-yard drive, which is how Johnson normally ends the festivities.
