Johnson Wins The John Deere After Playoff

16/07/2012  
Zach Johnson is no stranger to winning on the PGA Tour and this weekend the former Master's Champion added another to his victory total with a win at the John Deere Classic.

Johnson, in DryJoys Tour Shoes and StaSof Golf Glove, fired a final round six under par 65 to jump in front of 54 hole leader Troy Matteson. Now two strokes back with two to play, Matteson (DryJoys Tour Shoes) jarred a 60 foot eagle putt to tie the Johnson's clubhouse lead at 20 under par. Making par on the last, the two players would head back on the course for a sudden death playoff.

On the first playoff hole both players exchanged head scratching double bogeys and headed back to the 18th tee for the third time today. This time Johnson rifled his 190 yard fairway bunker approach to within a foot of the cup. Matteson needed more late day heroics to have any chance to extend the playoff but missed his birdie bid giving Zach a tap in for the victory. Johnson converted the tap in making him the 2012 John Deer Classic Champion.

Zach later stated of his clutch playoff approach shot, “I think we’re stating the obvious...That was my shot of the week.”

This is Zach's ninth win on the PGA Tour and second of the season. The win also moves Zach to second in the FedEx Cup standings
