(ANSA) - Rome, June 11 - Golfer Dustin Johnson has won the FedEx St. Jude Classic and regained the top ranking worldwide. He had been surpassed by Justin Thomas for a month, who is now back in 2nd place ahead of the U.S. Open scheduled for June 14-17. Johnson will be taking part after dominating the last round of the TGA Tour, ending with 261 (67 63 65 66, -19), 6 over his fellow American Andrew Putnam (2nd at -13).
    In third place was John Holmes (-9) and tied for fourth were Stewart Cink and Richy Werenski (-8). Phil Mickelson finished in 12th place (-6).
    Johnson has thus made a comeback in Memphis, Tennessee, proving skeptics who said his time in the golf spotlight was over wrong. The 33-year-old from Columbia, South Carolina, is now hoping to win the U.S. Open to achieve a double win no golfer ever has before.
