It didn't take long for Dustin Johnson to get back in the swing of things. After a two-month absence to nurse a back injury, Johnson tied for 19th place at last week's Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance. He's back at it again this week. Johnson carded a 3-under 67 in the third round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic on Saturday, and was only a shot off the lead at 5 under for the tournament. "Today is probably the first day where I actually hit it nicely all day long," Johnson said. "So, you know, definitely getting into shape for the U.S. Open." After opening with two pars, Johnson made an eagle 3 on the third hole after hitting his second shot from 215 yards to 7 feet. He also birdied Nos. 13 and 16 before finishing with a bogey on the 18th, when he missed a 9 foot par putt. "The bogey on the last hole definitely hurt a little bit, especially I was in the middle of the fairway with a sand wedge," said Johnson, who is 72nd in FedExCup points despite the fact that he's played in only eight events. "Just caught a gust of wind and flew way too far." Click here to replay Johnson's round
