Dustin Johnson picks up sixth PGA TOUR win


AJGA alum Dustin Johnson earned his sixth career PGA TOUR victory at the FedEx St. Jude Classic at TPC Southwind this weekend.

Only his second appearance since sustaining an injury earlier this season, Johnson began the final round one shot off the lead, and birdied five holes, including Nos. 16 and 17 to post 4-under 66 and win by one shot.

From 1999 to 2002, Johnson appeared in five AJGA tournaments with his best finish being T10 at the 2001 AJGA Greater Greensboro Chrysler Junior. Following his AJGA career, he went on to play for Coastal Carolina University where he achieved All-American status twice and earned seven career victories.

Johnson is one of the many AJGA Alumni who will play in the U.S. Open beginning June 14.

AJGA Alumni and supporter Stacy Lewis continued her hot streak, tying for second with Mika Miyazato, Eun-Hee Ji and Suzann Pettersen at the Wegmans LPGA Championship. Having finished in the top-five in her last four tournaments, Lewis will compete in the Manulife Financial LPGA Classic and the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship before competing in the U.S. Women’s Open in July.

Update: Johnson's best AJGA finish was corrected on June 13.
