Dustin Johnson at the 2012 FedEx St. Jude Classic at TPC Southwind.


THERE’S AN OLD SAYING in golf: beware of the player who is sick or injured—or in Dustin Johnson’s case, is coming off an injury. Johnson won last year’s FedEx St. Jude Classic on Sunday after a back injury kept him off the PGA TOUR for almost three months. And he did it with style, firing a final-round four- under-par 66 to edge John Merrick by a stroke. “This [victory] feels really good, especially having so much time off,” said Johnson, who pulled a muscle in his lower back lifting a jet ski and doctors urged him to rest—a lot. He was off the TOUR from March until June, when he came back to tie for 19th at the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance.

of his round Sunday, but got into a share of the lead before making birdies on 16 and 17 to finish at 9-under-par 271. “I had a lot of looks, a lot of good looks and made a few putts coming down the stretch, especially for those great birdies at 16 and 17,” Johnson said.


RIVALS MADE COSTLY MISTAKES Johnson led by a stroke going to No. 18, but was helped out by Rory McIlroy, Chad Campbell and Nick O’Hern, who had a chance to tie Johnson with a birdie but hit their tee shots into a lake on the final hole. Johnson played conservatively on the home hole and made a par, which was good enough for the win.


The victory put Johnson in some fairly
