Ryan Blaum and Andrew Putnam each shot 64 and were tied for second, and C.T. Pan (65) and Wesley Bryan (66) followed at 8 under.

"I feel my game is really good, really solid", said Pan, a former University of Washington star now in his second year on the Tour.

Johnson and Putnam were tied for the lead at 15 under after the third round and were five strokes clear of the rest of the field.

Cook's 5 under on Sunday tied him with Phil Mickelson and Tim Herron for the best scores of the final round and moved him up the leaderboard into a tie for sixth.

The win ensures Johnson will return to the top of the rankings as the golf world prepares for the second major of the season at next week's US Open at Shinnecock Hills, New York.

Johnson birdied the third hole and bogeyed the fifth to make the turn at even par. He wound up three-putting for double bogey. "I've got a lot of control of my golf ball and that's what you're looking for going into any week, but yeah, especially going into [Sunday] and then obviously next week".

"Just wanted to play, stay sharp", Johnson said.

Dustin Johnson reclaimed the top spot in the world ranking Sunday with a six-shot victory at the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

"When you're around or in the lead you can definitely feel the pressure but I like it", Johnson, 33, said. "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".

Langer closed the bogey-free round with a 12-foot birdie putt on the par-4 18th at Wakonda Club.
