Today in History: Zach Johnson wins Masters

Posted:

AUGUSTA, GEORGIA (KWWL) -- On April 8, 2007, Cedar Rapids native Zach Johnson won The Masters Tournament.  Zach entered the day two strokes back. 

He sealed it with three birdies in the back nine, and even with Tiger Woods on the course, no one could catch him.  It was just his third shot at the prestigious golf tournament.  Prior to this win, Johnson only had one PGA win under his belt.

The previous year's champ, Phil Mickelson gave Johnson his green jacket.
