Dustin Johnson Wins FedEx St. Jude Classic
By mustang6560 on 6/11/12
Dustin Johnson closed with a 4-under-par 66 in the final round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to win his sixth PGA Tour title.
For a man who couldn't swing a golf club for six weeks, Dustin Johnson sure knows how to return to winning form quickly.

Johnson won the FedEx St. Jude Classic on Sunday in his second event after a back injury cost him nearly three months away from the PGA TOUR, shooting a 4-under 66 that held off John Merrick by a stroke.

"Well, it feels really good, especially having so much time off," Johnson said.
The South Carolina native is the first player since Tiger Woods to go directly from college and win a tournament in each of his first five season on the PGA Tour. He also holds the second-longest active streak of consecutive seasons with a victory (5) behind only Phil Mickelson (9).

Dustin is clearly a very talented golfer, however, he is definitely his own worst enemy (see 2010 PGA Championship). The only thing preventing him from taking his game to the next level (winning a major) is himself. Hopefully, as Jack Nicklaus likes to say, Dustin can "get smart young", so he can avoid further careless injuries and mental mistakes to finally breakthrough at one of the majors.
