Dustin Johnson has regained the world number one spot by winning the St Jude Classic in Memphis.
The 33-year-old climbed back to the top of the world rankings for the first time since May 13, courtesy of his tournament-winning 19 under par score.
Johnson's second tournament win of the season tees up the American nicely for the US Open, which starts on June 14.
He won the 2016 edition of the US Open at Oakmont in 2016, and will carry extra momentum into this year's major at Shinnecock Hills in New York.
Johnson entered the final day in a share of the lead with Andrew Putnam but was quickly handed the initiative when his fellow American made a double-bogey on the first.
He maintained his two-shot lead at the turn and then made birdies on the 13th and 16th before spectacularly holing out from 171 yards on the par-four last for an eagle and a six-shot victory.
JB Holmes finished third at nine under, a shot clear of 2009 Open champion Stewart Cink and Richy Werenski.

Tiger Woods' latest injury comeback appears to be on track after the 14-time major champion released a video of him driving the ball.
The American, who only last month admitted it was possible he may never play competitive golf again as he continues his rehabilitation from back surgery, tweeted a nine-second clip in which he hits a drive while wearing his trademark Sunday red shirt, captioned "Making Progress".
Woods has not played since an abortive return ended in February this year after a birdie-less first round in the Dubai Desert Classic and underwent back surgery for a fourth time in April.
Speaking at a press conference ahead of the Presidents Cup in September, Woods was asked if his career could be over.
He responded: "Yes, definitely. I don't know what the future holds for me.
"Overall, I'm very optimistic how I'm progressing. The pain's gone, but I don't know what my golfing body is going to be like because I haven't hit a golf shot yet.
"So that's going to take time to figure that out and figure out what my capabilities are going forward. And there's no rush.''
Woods has also had problems away from the course, having been arrested on a drink-driving charge in May.
Three weeks after drinking out of the Claret Jug to celebrate close friend Jordan Spieth's Open victory, Justin Thomas had a major trophy of his own after his victory in the US PGA Championship.
Thomas carded a closing 68 in a thrilling final round at Quail Hollow to finish eight under par, two shots ahead of Patrick Reed, Louis Oosthuizen and Francesco Molinari.
Rickie Fowler and Hideki Matsuyama shared fifth place on five under with Kevin Kisner, who needed to eagle the 18th to force a play-off but ran up a double bogey, dropping back into a tie for seventh with Graham DeLaet.
England's Jordan Smith, playing in his first major championship, carded a closing 68 to finish in a tie for ninth with Open runner-up Matt Kuchar, former world number one Jason Day and Chris Stroud.
Fowler and Spieth were among the players to wait beside the 18th green to congratulate Thomas, who became the youngest player to shoot 59 on the PGA Tour on his way to winning back-to-back events in Hawaii in January.
"It's awesome and I think they know I would do the same for them," Thomas said. "It's a cool little friendship we have."

Two-time major winner Jordan Spieth gave himself nine out of 10 after beginning his bid to secure the third leg of a career grand slam in impressive fashion in the 146th Open Championship.
Spieth carded a bogey-free 65 at Royal Birkdale to share the clubhouse lead with US Open champion Brooks Koepka, whose round included four birdies and an eagle.
The 65s of Ryder Cup team-mates Spieth and Koepka equalled the second lowest first round score in an Open at Birkdale, a shot outside Craig Stadler's record of 64 set in 1983.
But after hitting just five of 14 fairways, Spieth knew there was room for improvement as he looks to add the Open title to his Masters and US Open victories in 2015.
"I thought today's round was extremely important, as they all are, but given the forecast coming in, I thought you really needed to be in the red (under par) today," the 23-year-old said.
"Everything was strong. I give it a nine across the board for everything - tee balls, ball-striking, short game and putting. So things are in check. It's just about keeping it consistent.
"I'd call it a top five major round that I've played. There are scores that I've shot that were closer to par that were better given what I needed to do.
"But I couldn't have done much better today. I essentially missed two greens today in some 15mph winds."
