Incredible holed out shot propels Zach Johnson to playoff victory

Posted: Updated:

Zach Johnson's birdie at #18 of the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge was somewhat of a miracle.  After shanking a ball in the water, Johnson hit out of the drop zone, bounced it past the stick, and drew it back in to the hole for an incredible birdie that would force a playoff against Tiger Woods.  A par on the first playoff hole would clinch the victory.

Johnson rallied from 4 strokes back with 8 holes left to set up the dramatic shot on the 18th.  The finish, however, was a bit of a letdown.  After Johnson tapped in for par, Tiger Woods lipped out a 3 foot putt that would have continued the playoff.

The win was the 2nd for Zach Johnson in his last 4 events.
