Walk-off eagle! Watch Dustin Johnson's spectacular final shot

Walk-off eagle! Watch Dustin Johnson's spectacular final shot”

Following a 308-yard tee shot, Johnson had 110 yards left to the hole.

Johnson has been dominant in multiple aspects of his game this season.

"I just want to win", Johnson said. Johnson tapped in for birdie, followed with a two-putt birdie at the par-5 third and added birdies at Nos.

Johnson (2016) and Koepka ('17) claimed their first major titles at the U.S. Open after playing in the St. Jude the past two years.

Best of the rest: Retief Goosen - who won the U.S. Open the last time it was played at Shinnecock - went 68-66 on the weekend to record his first top-10 of the year and first since the 2017 Puerto Rico Open.

Johnson is looking for his second win in 2018, a victory that would move him back to World No. 1. Instead, he rolled in the putt to keep his lead, and birdied the 13th to increase it to three. He knows it will be the biggest Sunday of his career as he plays in the final pairing for the first time.

"I hadn't played a whole lot the last couple of months. Normally you have to drive it really well to succeed here but my iron shots have been good when I've been in the fairway and I've managed myself out of the rough really well".

"I've got a lot of confidence in the golf game right now", he said on Saturday.

Blaum redeemed a bogey at the first with seven birdies in a 64 and Putnam matched that effort as both seek a first win on the PGA Tour. "It's one of those days you like to have".

Andrew Putnam and Dustin Johnson do battle in tomorrow's final day of the FedEx St Jude Classic, the pair a massive five shots clear of 45-year old Stewart Cink at the TPC Southwind in Memphis.

Putnam, a two-time victor on the Web.com Tour, had only one bogey through his first three rounds. Scott Piercy withdrew after nine holes at 5 over.

He had made three birdies and just one bogey as he stepped on to the final hole and in characteristically nonchalant fashion he proceeded to hole his second from 170 yards.

Mickelson headed a group of six golfers finishing in 12th at 6 under.
