DJ back with a bang a St Jude Classic

Six weeks out with a back injury, only his second event back on the golf scene following rehabilitation, and coming up against the reigning US Open chamion and World No2 Rory McIlroy; the odds of Dustin Johnson winning the St Jude Classic in Memphis weren't good.

But 'DJ''s game apparently heals even faster than his body, and he shot a 4-under 66 on Sunday to take the title by a stroke.

''Well, it feels really good, especially having so much time off,'' Johnson said, after inching past John Merrick to take the title.

This was Johnson's sixth career win, the most of all his fellow 20-somethings on the Tour.

''It means I'm playing good golf too,'' Johnson said. ''I come out every week and I try to just put myself in position to have a chance to win on Sunday.''

Despite the auspicious victory, the 27-year-old Carolinan was never on the U.S. Open that follows, he's leaving that for the coming days.

''I wasn't worried about the Open today,'' Johnson said with a smile. ''I was worried about winning the FedEx. Next is a whole different week.''
