Johnson on top of the world after Memphis victory

Johnson on top of the world after Memphis victory

He'd walk off with the win instead.

Having held a share of a five-shot lead with Andrew Putnam heading in to the final round, DJ looked in a good position to claim his second title of the year as his playing partner double bogeyed the first hole to hand Johnson a two-shot advantage.

Gillman, the 20-year-old University of Alabama star from Austin, Texas, beat 16-year-old Annabell Fuller 5 and 4 to cap a ideal weekend at Quaker Ridge in the amateur competition.

Winning the classic for the second time in his career, Johnson finished with an eagle, three birdies and a bogey to tally 19-under 261 for the tournament.

Johnson also had a 63 in the second round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC last October to kick off this season. "I like this golf course, and I feel like I play it well and wanted to be on top of my game going into next week, too".

World number two Johnson turned on the afterburners after a pedestrian opening nine, holing out from the fairway at his 10th hole, the par-four first, where his ball took a couple of bounces and disappeared into the cup.

Johnson, who won the U.S. Open in 2016, heads to Shinnecock Hills after stringing together four straight rounds in the 60s. He knows it will be the biggest Sunday of his career as he plays in the final pairing for the first time.

At least until his final dramatic shot.

J.B Holmes shot a 67 on Sunday to finish a distant third at 9 under, with Stewart Cink (72) and Richy Werenski (71) ending up tied for fourth another stroke in arrears.

Phil Mickelson had a 65 on Sunday and was at six under in a tie for 12th in a group which included Stuart Appleby, who closed with a 69. Putnam pulled within two strokes with a birdie on No. 7, rolling a putt 11 feet after Johnson parred the hole.

At the 239-yard par-3 14th, Thornberry hit a tee shot 207 yards at the green, setting himself up for the 10-foot putt for birdie. So that definitely gives me a lot of confidence going into a U.S. Open because you've got to drive it well, you've got to control your distance well, and you've got to hit really quality golf shots at a U.S. Open. He won the Tournament of Champions in January and followed with a tie for second at Pebble Beach in February. 15 and 16. At the par-5 16th, he was deep in the trees, but he was able to get it out cleanly and now has just a pitch in.
