DJ downs Spieth in PGA play-off in NYC

A bunker on the 18th- it was that sort of day for Danny Lee in the opening round of The Northern Trust the first

The other was a drive that traveled 341 yards.

At the first play-off hole, Johnson knocked his approach to three feet and holed the birdie putt after Spieth had missed from distance.

"It was a little bit easier coming in with a 60-degree on 18 and I hit a great shot in there to three feet".

Johnson's last win came five months and a day before this one, which doesn't sound like very long in mortal golfer terms but feels like an eternity for a guy who'd gotten so used to winning 'em.

"It was fun to be in the hunt again and know that my game is going to hold up under pressure", Johnson said.

Johnson is the No. 1 player in the World Golf Rankings, and with Sunday's victory, he returned to the top of the standings in the FedEx Cup Playoffs. It's very hard holding a lead on a hard golf course when the guy you're playing with goes bogey-free and doesn't even really sniff a bogey and shoots four-under.

"I didn't lose this tournament", Spieth said.

"Just the front nine, I could not hole a putt", Johnson said after his round. I thought my par putt was going to be much closer. Johnson did his part by missing two fairways to wide that he was playing his next shot from the adjacent hole. He stuffed that to just inside 4 feet, and when Spieth missed, Johnson calmly rapped in his short birdie putt.

Johnson and Spieth finished regulation at 13-under 267. "This was the first one I've really had to work at". He told his caddie, brother Austin Johnson, that if they got into a playoff, he wouldn't make the same mistake twice.


Matsuyama sank a five-footer for his first birdie of the tournament on the par-5 third and appeared on track for a recovery round with back-to-back birdies on Nos. He had won three straight until that injury.

"I feel like the game's finally back in form like it was leading in to the Masters".

There was some disquiet on social media though from fellow pros at the choice of play-off hole, the 18th, which seemed to favour the big-hitting Johnson.

Vegas shot a five-under 65 to vault into the top 10 in the FedEx Cup standings. She birdied the final hole for 7-under 64 and a two-stroke win over Mirim Lee (68).

The American began the day in a four-way tie for the lead and recovered from a bogey on the first with his fifth birdie of the day on the 10th. I feel like I'm swinging everything really well.

Top-ranked So Yeon Ryu, the 2014 victor at London Hunt, had a 68 to get to 5 under along with Kerr (67), Stacy Lewis (68), Nicole Broch Larsen (68), Sherman Santiwiwatthanaphong (69) and Holly Clyburn (70).

SNOQUALMIE, Wash. (AP) - Jerry Kelly fired a 6-under 66 for a one-stroke victory over Jerry Smith at the Boeing Classic in Washington. Kelly shot a tournament-record 19-under 197.

Michelle Wie withdrew before the final round to have her appendix removed.
