Zach Johnson first round Co-leader at Deere Classic

Posted: Updated:
Zach Johnson was on fire in the first round of the John Deere Classic. Johnson started on the back and he ripped through the first nine holes in six under par. And he continued his strong play with a great tee shot on his tenth hole. With a large gallery following and watching his every move. Johnson birdied the hole to go to seven under par.

Zach also birdied the 11th hole to move to eight under par with seven holes to play. Johnson said the PGA 18 hole record of 59 actually crossed his mind.

Johnson played a near perfect first round---he would make eight birdies and no bogies--shooting an 8 under par 63 for a share of the first round lead with Rory Sabbatini and Brian Harman .

And while Johnson had an outstanding first round--defending champion Jordan Spieth struggled today--shooting a first round score of even par.. he's in 83rd place. Zach Johnson tees off Friday afternoon at 12:45.
