  • Dustin Johnson Reclaims No. 1 Ranking with Win in Memphis

"I didn't really have it today, but I was able to close out the round with a couple of birdies and get it back to even and I'm in a decent position".

Johnson knows what he wants.

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

Winning the tournament would take Johnson back ahead of Justin Thomas as world number one going into the US Open and his efforts earned him a one-shot lead over fellow Americans Ryan Blaum and Andrew Putnam. Johnson's 17-under total left Putman trailing after his 72.

After a slow start Sunday, Johnson made two birdies on the back nine to cruise to victory.

The 29-year-old has made only one bogey through 54 holes. He was at 7 under.

Phil Mickelson had a 65 on Sunday and was at six under in a tie for 12th in a group which included Australian Stuart Appleby, who closed with a 69. Now he will play in the last group on the final day for the first time on the PGA Tour with Johnson.

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

The win also vaults Johnson to the new World No. 1. More importantly, he would head to Shinnecock Hills with a spring in his step for the second major championship of the year. He has three top 10s and tied for eighth last week at Memorial. "It seems like it's been a long time even though it's just been six months (since I won)".

"I'm swinging the club well". "If I play really good golf, I'm probably going to win". I'm hitting my irons well, and my wedges are really good. Johnson tapped in for birdie, followed with a two-putt birdie at the par-5 third and added birdies at Nos. You've got narrow fairways and you gotta hit the fairway or it's a hard golf course to play from the rough.

At the 445-yard par-4 sixth, Bryan got on in 2 and missed his par putt from 4 feet, finishing with a 3-putt bogey.

Yokomine, the victor of 23 events on the Japan LPGA Tour, flirted with a 59 but parred the par-5 18th for a 61 to tie the course record.
