The final round of the St. Jude Classic did not disappoint with players bunched at the top of the leaderboard throughout most of the day. (CALL) Dustin Johnson's birdie putt on the sixth hole dropped him to seven under par but he wasn't the only one making a run up the leaderboard. Rory McIlroy birdied the 17th to put him at 8 under par with a share of the lead but ran into trouble on the 18th when his tee shot found the water. McIlroy would double bogey the final hole and finish at six under for the tournament. John Merrick had a chance to tie Johnson at nine under par and force a playoff with this chip on 18. Merrick remains winless in 154 career starts but Johnson won for the first time since recovering from a back injury for his sixth career title.
