Zach Johnson stumbled to a 6-over-par 40-38=78 in his opening round of the 78th Masters.
The 2007 champion landed just eight greens in regulation today and walked away empty-handed; that is, he didn't circle a single par breaker while squaring six bogeys. It clinched the 10th time in as many appearances that he signed for an over-par total. His 1-over 289 was the highest in tournament history since 1956. It's also the first time he hasn't opened with a score of par or better since a 74 at Merion in last year's U.S. Open. In fact, all but one of his previous 18 lid-lifters were red numbers (70, McGladrey). Apr 10 - 6:02 PM

Zach Johnson is among the favorites in this season's Masters, and a win in 2007 suggests he could be up to the task.

Still, ZJ's win must be qualified. He slipped on the green jacket at a time when the coat served a practical purpose. That is, it was unseasonably cold. His winning tally was 1-over-par 289, which is a much higher score than we are used to seeing at Augusta National. Add to that, his T20 in 2008 is his next best effort and he's never broken par for 72 holes in any Masters.

Apr 8 - 9:34 PM

Zach Johnson settled for an even-par 37-35=72 in the final round of the Valero Texas Open to end the tournament at 5-under 283.

Johnson traded three bogeys for three birdies on his final lap around TPC San Antonio, missing a 5'5" effort for birdie on the par-5 18th to put him in red figures for the first time all day. He finished the week inside the top 10 in two stats, one a surprise and one not. His 62.5 percent GIR were tied for ninth at the time of his posting. The shocker is that he was fourth in longest drive, with a 366 yard bomb on Friday. This is his fourth top 10 of the 2013-14 season.
Mar 30 - 5:37 PM

Zach Johnson signed for a 2-under-par 38-32=70 in the third round of the Valero Texas Open, improving his tally to 5-under 211 for the week.

Johnson began his day at TPC San Antonio with a birdie-free front nine, squaring two bogeys to go with his seven pars. He flipped a switch at the turn, going blemish-free on the back with four birdies accompanying his five pars. He's a two-time winner at this event, but neither of those victories came at the current venue. His only trip to the AT&T Oaks Course came in 2010 and resulted in a missed cut. He enters the finale staring down a top 10.
Mar 29 - 5:05 PM

Zach Johnson backed up his opening 70 at the Valero Texas Open with a 1-under-par 37-34=71.

ZJ landed 13 greens in regulation, but negotiated just two birdies to erase one bogey (at the par-4 ninth hole). He helped preserve the red number with a par save from 17'7" at the par-5 eighth where he found a greenside bunker with his third. It was the only notable conversion of the day. At 3-under 141, he's five strokes off the 36-hole lead and tied for ninth on the leaderboard.
Mar 28 - 8:14 PM

Zach Johnson shot a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in his opening round of the Valero Texas Open, finishing two strokes back of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Johnson rolled into town having cashed in 18 consecutive starts. Just as impressive is that he's opened all but one with a red number. ZJ split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens at TPC San Antonio today. After nothing but pars on his first nine -- the back side of the course -- he exchanged four birdies with two bogeys coming home. The par breakers were highlighted by a 14'10" conversion at the second hole followed by a zero-putt 13-yarder at 3.
Mar 27 - 8:01 PM

Zach Johnson carded a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship and improves to even-par 216 for the tournament.

ZJ's round featured three birdies to just two bogeys, with the highlight coming in the form of a rare birdie from 12'3" on the difficult par-4 18th. The 18th was one of the few holes left relatively unscathed by the Gil Hanse redesign of Trump National Doral, due in large part to the test it already provided. Johnson finds himself just two strokes off the clubhouse lead, so he is well-positioned for a Sunday charge.
Mar 8 - 5:18 PM

Zach Johnson polished off his opening-round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship with a birdie conversion from 31'11" at the par-4 18th hole to post 2-under-par 34-36=70.

It was a welcome bounce-back following a bogey-5 at the 17th hole where he found a fairway bunker off the tee. Prior to that roller coaster to conclude the first round, he picked off an eagle at the par-5 eighth to complement an opening birdie-4. While the walk-off bomb was a treat, he'd likely cite par saves from 11'4" and 10'5" at the third and 11th holes, respectively, as keys to maintaining momentum. He signed his card sitting two strokes off the lead.
Mar 7 - 12:35 PM

Zach Johnson turned in a 3-under-par 35-32=67 for his opening round of The Honda Classic.

The devil is truly in the detail today. After a pedestrian up and down for par at the par-4 10th hole to begin his loop around PGA National, ZJ put two in the water on approach at the par-4 11th en route to a snowman. No biggie as he'd play out the string in bogey-free 7-under with seven birdies. The set included respective rolls from 20'3", 41'7" and 12'11" at Nos. 13, 6 and 9. He signed his card sitting just one stroke off the clubhouse lead.
Feb 27 - 12:49 PM

Zach Johnson is already out at the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship following his 5-and-4 loss to Richard Sterne in the Snead Bracket.

As the old saying goes, you can toss out the seeds in this tournament. ZJ sat atop his bracket, but Sterne would not be denied today. Johnson birdied the par-5 second to stake the early lead. The South African answered with a birdie-3 at the fourth to even. It was his first of six birdies during their 14-hole walk. Sterne's second occurred at the par-3 sixth after which he wouldn't surrender the lead. He won seven of the last 11 holes. It's the fourth consecutive edition that Johnson has lost in the first round. Sterne moves on to face Hunter Mahan.

Zach Johnson returns to Dove Mountain for the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

While ZJ is the top seed in the Sam Snead bracket, his record at this venue makes him vulnerable to an upset. Even if he gets past Richard Sterne in the first round, he has a potential date with Hunter Mahan in round two. All Mahan's done in his last two trips is pick up a trophy in 2012 and finish runner-up in 2013. All that to say Johnson better bring his best stuff.
Feb 18 - 9:54 PM

Zach Johnson torched Palmer Private at PGA West for a 10-under-par 32-30=62 in the final round of the Humana Challenge and leads in the clubhouse at 25-under 263.

Just when we thought Johnson may be running on fumes, he goes and fires the lowest round of the tournament this week. His round was blemish-free, featuring 10 birdies and eight pars. He ended his round with five consecutive birdies, coming out of nowhere to apply pressure to Patrick Reed. While Reed began the day with a seven-stroke advantage, Johnson trimmed the number to two in real time when he hung his number on the board. Keep in mind, this is Johnson's last action for four weeks, with his expected return being the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship.
Jan 19 - 5:46 PM

Zach Johnson posted a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the Humana Challenge on Palmer Private at PGA West.

Johnson reaches the 54-hole mark at 15-under 201 and is safely inside the top 20. After a great run in Hawaii, winning the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and sharing eighth at the Sony Open, he commented to Roger Maltbie in a Golf Channel post-round interview that he will take the next four weeks off, following Sunday's finale at Palmer Private. That would set his return for the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship.
Jan 18 - 6:30 PM

Zach Johnson trailed his opening 65 at the Humana Challenge with a 4-under-par 37-31=68 at PGA West's Nicklaus Private in the second round.

Today's walk featured a little bit of everything. After opening bogey-bogey at the 10th and 11th holes, ZJ recovered with birdies at 12 and 13. Another birdie at the par-3 17th bumped him into red numbers, only until he swallowed a 6 at the par-4 18th hole to turn in 1-over 37. Once again, he rebounded, this time with three birdies and an eagle (at the par-5 fourth hole) to post 11-under 133. He was the last of 15 to reach the halfway mark inside the top 10 on the leaderboard. Johnson will conclude his rotation at Palmer Private tomorrow.
Jan 17 - 8:16 PM

Zach Johnson remained red-hot in his opening round of the Humana Challenge, signing for a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-33=65, good for a share of the early clubhouse lead.

He split all 14 fairways and went 3-for-3 in scrambling while picking off seven birdies at La Quinta Country Club today. For the skeptical among us, it's a refreshing return to normal as it were given his putting was so poor at Waialae on Sunday where he tied for eighth. With the hardest of the three courses in this week's rotation out of the way, ZJ will take on Nicklaus Private on Friday. PGA West's Nicklaus Course was the easiest track on the 2013 PGA TOUR.
