Sports Briefs: Johnson scores win in St. Jude Classic
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Dustin Johnson won the St. Jude Classic on Sunday in his second event back on tour after a back injury cost him nearly three months, shooting a 4-under 66 that held off John Merrick by a stroke.
Johnson began the final round two strokes back and held a piece of the lead three different times. He won his sixth career title with consecutive birdies on Nos. 16 and 17 and finished 9-under 271.
He 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.
Johnson, who picked up the $1.08 million check, led by only a stroke going to No. 18. Rory McIlroy, Chad Campbell and Nick O'Hern, three of the four who had a chance to tie Johnson with a birdie, knocked their tee shots into the lake.
Tom Lehman withstood the rain and a couple of challengers to win his second straight Regions Tradition in Birmingham, Ala., finishing the Champions Tour major with a 4-under 68 to take a two-stroke victory.
Lehman overcame a near-constant drizzle and occasional heavy rain at Shoal Creek — plus hard charges by Bernhard Langer and Chien Soon Lu — for his sixth Champions Tour victory. He finished at 14-under 274. Langer and Lu shot 66 to tie for second.
