MEMPHIS - Dustin Johnson won the St. Jude Classic in his second event back from an injury that sidelined him nearly three months, shooting a 4-under 66 to beat John Merrick by a stroke.
Johnson birdied Nos. 16 and 17 and closed with a par to finish at 9-under 271. He earned $1,008,000 for his sixth PGA Tour title, at the TPC Southwind course.
Johnson aggravated his back in early March lifting a jet ski at his home and didn't return to the PGA Tour until last week at the Memorial, where he tied for 19th.
Merrick finished with a 68.
U.S. Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III had a 69 to tie for third with Chad Campbell, Nick O'Hern and Ryan Palmer at 7 under.
Rory McIlroy, the defending champion next week in the U.S. Open, closed with a double bogey for a 69 that left him in a tie for seventh at 6 under.
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Tom Lehman successfully defended his title in the Regions Tradition, finishing with a 4-under 68 for a 2-stroke victory.
Lehman finished at 14-undeer 275 in near-constant drizzle and occasional heavy rain at Shoal Creek. Bernhard Langer and Chien Soon Lu shot 66 to tie for second.
