Past champ Zach Johnson smoothed a bogey-free 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to wrap his 11th appearance on 5-under 275, up 12 on the live leaderboard to T19.
The tournament's all-time money winner and two-time champ (2010, 2012) didn't have the week he was hoping for but finished on a high note. He posted rounds of 72-68-68 to begin the final frame on 2-under T31. The 40-year-old split 11 (of 14) fairways and peppered 15 greens in regulation, posting 3.316 SGTTG, though -0.173 SGP. He mustered just three birdies for 1.800 putts per GIR, highlighted by a 39-footer for birdie-2 at the fourth. May 29 - 4:35 PM

Zach Johnson crept up the leaderboard after posting a 3-under-par 37-32=69 in the second round of THE PLAYERS, reaching 8-under 136 on the week.

ZJ opened on the back nine and took a few holes to dial in the green speeds, as he missed a 4'4" birdie attempt at the par-5 11th. After that he splashed in lengthy birdie putts from 13'2", 10'2", and 20'10" all before making the turn at 4-under. He got in trouble off the tee at the par-4 first and par-3 third holes, to drop a couple of shots, but bounced back with a birdie from just outside 10 feet on the par-4 seventh hole. Through two rounds, ZJ has traded 12 birdies with just four bogeys despite ranking 70th in the field in strokes gained putting. If the flat stick heats up over the week, Johnson will be a serious contender to lift the trophy come Sunday.

Zach Johnson fired a 3-under-par 36-33=69 during the first round of the Valero Texas Open to keep himself right in the mix through 18 holes.

ZJ opened his day with a bogey at the par-4 10th hole and also ended his round with a bogey at the par-4 18th. What happened in between is what matters. After a missed seven-footer at the first, Johnson quickly figured out the greens and ended up with four putts made form outside 11 feet. The longest was a 25'8" birdie bomb on the par-5 second hole. Johnson walked off the course with 2.73 strokes gained with the putter, putting himself in great position through day one.

Zach Johnson carved out a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in today's third round of the RBC Heritage for a 54-hole total of 4-under 209, up five on the live leaderboard to T6.

The St. Simons Island, Georgia, resident is making his 12th foray on Hilton Head Island and his best was runner-up in 2012. He entered the week off a missed cut at the Masters but T9 (L in Rd. of 16) at the WGC-Match Play and solo fifth at Bay Hill prior. The 40-year-old began his third frame on 3-under (T11) three adrift, after opening in 71-68. He found eight (of 14) fairways and just nine greens in regulation, but outpaced four bogeys, including a walk-off 5, with five birdies, highlighted by a 41-foot bomb on the par-3 17th and a hole-out from 17 yards away for birdie-3 at the first.

With a 4-and-3 victory over Shane Lowry in Texas on Friday, 14-seed Zach Johnson cruised through to the round of 16 at the WGC-Dell Match Play with a perfect 3-0-0 record.

Johnson has still to see the final three holes at Austin Country Club after this second 4-and-3 win and yesterday's 8-and-6 landslide over Martin Kaymer. The Open champion didn't have to do much early as Lowry (0-2-1) gifted him a 2-up lead with bogeys at 2 and 3. With nothing coming back the other way, Johnson doubled his lead with birdies at 6 and 8, the latter after holing from 21'5". Another circle at 10 continued his dominance and, although Lowry rallied with wins at 11 and 13, the American closed the match out with another birdie at 15. Johnson has made 13 birdies and an eagle so far and next up is a possible clash with Rory McIlroy in Saturday's Sweet 16.
Mar 25 - 3:26 PM

Zach Johnson secured the largest margin of victory so far this week after posting a 8-and-6 landslide over Martin Kaymer in the second round of the World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play.

ZJ lost the opening hole as the German rolled in an 8'5" birdie. The Iowa native didn't falter as he won the next four holes to climb out to a 3-up lead through five. That included a 16'11" birdie splash on the par-4 second in addition to a 11'2" birdie on the par-4 fifth hole. Johnson added two more birdies (No. 10 and No. 11) before Kaymer conceded the 12th hole when he found the greenside bunker and splashed out with 20'11" remaining for his par putt. Johnson is off to a fantastic start through two rounds as he turns his attention to a round-three match against the Irishman, Shane Lowry. The 1-1-0 Kaymer will take on Marcus Fraser in day three of the WGC.

Zach Johnson jousted with Marcus Fraser, walking away with a 4-and-3 win during the first round of the World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play.

The highly-touted Johnson wasted no time getting on the scoreboard, landing his 138-yard approach shot to just 3'3" for an easy birdie at the par-4 first hole. Johnson added circles on the par-4 third, par-3 fourth, and par-5 sixth holes. Despite the birdie barrage, he made the turn at just 1-up. Fraser didn't win another hole and Johnson tacked on a big blow at the par-5 12th hole as he rolled in an 11'3" eagle, outdoing Fraser's simple birdie. Johnson may have pieced together the best round of the day as he turns his attention toward Martin Kaymer in round two. Fraser will focus on Shane Lowry for his second match of the week.

Zach Johnson enjoyed a 4-under-par 36-32=68 in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational for a four-day tally of 12-under 276, five in arrears of champion Jason Day.

Johnson bogeyed his first hole on Sunday, but played his final 17 in bogey-free 5-under, good for his second straight and fifth top 10 at Bay Hill in 13 tries. He's only missed the weekend once (2010). The 40-year-old was T25 after twin 70s, T9 after 68 on Saturday, and finished solo fifth after a matching 68 in the finale. It's his second top 10 of the season on eight starts and first since T9 at the Sony Open. Johnson's 72-hole totals show one eagle erasing one double, a distant T25 in birdies with 16, but was T3 in bogeys with only four.
Mar 20 - 8:22 PM

Zach Johnson twirled a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in today's third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational for a three-day tally of 8-under 208, up 16 spots on the live leaderboard to T9, and tied for low round in the clubhouse with Smylie Kaufman.

Making his 13th consecutive Bay Hill appearance, Johnson began R3 on 4-under (T25) after opening in twin 70s. On his lap, he circled six on 16 greens in regulation for 1.688 putts per GIR, highlighted by a 14'2" roll on the par-4 11th and a long of 34'3" at the par-4 ninth. The 40-year-old's lone blemish was a double bogey-6 at 13 after hitting his approach into the water.
Mar 19 - 1:30 PM

Zach Johnson is searching for consistency as he preps for this week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

ZJ enters the week with MC-T14-MC-T9-T21 on his PGA TOUR resume since the start of 2016. The T21 was in a 32-man field, and two missed cuts in a five tournament stretch is odd given his career cut-made percentage is over 80. Despite it being so rare, he did the same thing last year and turned his season around with a T9-T20-T9 stretch starting at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Given the length of Trump National Doral’s Blue Monster Course, gamers may want to hold off for one more week before they buy low on Johnson shares.

Past champ Zach Johnson signed for a 3-under-par 33-34=67 after today's final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to conclude his 11th visit to Waialae CC on 13-under 267, currently T8 on the leaderboard.

The 2009 champ began his final frame on 10-under (T13), six adrift of 54-hole co-leaders Zach Blair and Brandt Snedeker. After opening just one back with a 7-under 63, he was still T3 after 36 holes with a second-round 66 but fell off the pace with an up-and-down even-par 70 in round three. The 39-year-old fought back with today's four-birdie against one-bogey effort and a possible top-10 finish. For the tourney, he circled 19 birdies and squared six bogeys, and had a shaky week with his new PXG driver, finding just 32/56 fairways for a 57.14 percent clip.
Jan 17 - 9:15 PM

Zach Johnson backed up his opening 64 with a 4-under-par 35-31=66 in round two of the Sony Open in Hawaii to post 10-under 130, two back of early 36-hole clubhouse leader Brandt Snedeker.

The 2009 Sony champ went off the 10th tee on Friday and raced to a blemish-free 4-under first half circling birdies at Nos. 11, 12, 15 and 18. It could've been two better after missing a near-gimme from 3'8" at the 10th, and a six-footer at 17, but he converted three from inside six feet and an 18-footer at the par-4 12th. The 39-year-old stalled out after the break, exchanging a bogey-5 at the first, with a 2'8" birdie at the par-5 ninth for his final tally. Thru 36 holes, he's currently T1 in the 144-man field with 12 birdies -- on 30 greens in regulation -- but swallowed a -0.784 mark in strokes gained: putting on day two, T42 in that latter category at the time he signed his card.
Jan 15 - 6:05 PM

Zach Johnson kicked off the Sony Open in Hawaii with a 6-under-par 31-33=64 and currently sits one stroke shy of the five-pack of co-leaders.

ZJ stretched out to six-under through 15 holes before giving one back on the par-4 16th, as he could not convert on a 6'9" par-saving attempt. He added one more birdie at the closing par-5 18th to get back to 6-under 64. This bird was one of four putts made from outside 10 feet on the day, including a 21'4" bomb on the par-4 sixth. Using the fresh PXG sticks, Johnson hit 15 greens in regulation and should stay in contention should that trend continue.
Jan 14 - 10:32 PM

Past champ Zach Johnson authored a 6-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions to wrap his ninth appearance at 11-under 281, up nine spots on the live leaderboard to T17.

After opening in 75-69-70, the 2014 champion finally settled in with his new sticks to head to the Sony with a little tailwind. He began with a three-putt bogey from 37'11" at the difficult par-4 opener, but played his last 17 holes in blemish-free 7-under. The 39-year-old circled birdies at Nos. 4, 5, 9, 13 and 17 and added an eagle at the par-5 15th from 21'4". That roll from distance would be just his second best conversion on the day, dropping a 28-footer on the 549-yard par-4 17th. ZJ striped 14 (of 15) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, concluding the week ranked 14th and 18th, respectively in those two stats at the time he signed his card.
Jan 10 - 7:50 PM

Past champ Zach Johnson bounced back for a 4-under-par 34-35=69 in the second round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and reached the midpoint at 2-under 144.

The 2014 HTOC champ had 31 career rounds at The Plantation Course entering the week with a scoring average of 70.32 over the par-73 layout. That of course, was with his previous club manufacturer. The 39-year-old's first loop yesterday with the new sticks ended with just 12 greens in regulation and a 3-over 75, playing his last eight holes in 5-over, including a disastrous run of bogey-bogey-double bogey-bogey on Nos. 11-14. Today's jaunt went for five birdies on 16 GIR to outpace a lone 3-putt bogey on the par-3 11th. He's a distant nine shots back of the leader on the course, but progress is progress.
