Zach Johnson

Johnson began playing golf at age 10. Lists his father and mother among his heroes. A big Iowa Hawkeye football and basketball fan. Caddie Damon Green competed in 2011, '12, and '14 U.S. Senior Opens. In his PGA Tour career, Johnson has finished in the top-10 of the money race four times: 2007, '09, '12, and '13. Has not ranked lower than 53rd on the money list since joining the Tour in 2004. His victory at the 2007 Masters allowed him to join Jack Fleck, the 1955 U.S. Open winner, as the only native Iowans to win one of golf's four major championships. In 2015 at St. Andrews, he elevated his career another notch by capturing the British Open in a three-way playoff. Grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and is an alumnus of a high school that doesn't exist anymore, Cedar Rapids Regis. The school also claims another celebrated graduate, NFL Hall of Famer quarterback Kurt Warner.
Member of 2006, '10, '12, '14 and '16 USA Ryder Cup teams and 2007, '09, '13 and '15 USA Presidents Cup teams.

2010 Notes: Won for the fourth consecutive year with a victory at the Colonial, his seventh on the PGA Tour, with three wins coming in Texas and Georgia. Steadily improved his putting: Was 10th in total putting in 2010, ranked 8th in putting inside 10 feet, and 4th in putts between 20 and 25 feet. Finished 17th in the FedExCup standings and 19th in earnings.
2011 Notes: The Eighth season on the PGA Tour included four top-10 finishes and a 40th-place finish in the FedExCup, 44th on the money list. Teamed in June with Matt Kuchar to win the unofficial 36-hole CVS Caremark Charity Classic.
2012 Notes: Won at the Colonial and John Deere Classic. Had his second-best career season with $4.5 million in earnings, a 12th-place finish in the FedExCup standings, and 6th on the money list. Had six top-10s and 11 top-25 finishes. In his third Ryder Cup appearance, he went 3-1-0 at Medinah C.C., as the U.S. fell to Europe. Posted four birdies in his first seven holes in his singles match against Graeme McDowell en route to a 2 & 1 victory.
2013 Notes: Finished 3rd in his effort to join Ben Hogan as the only player to win back-to-back Colonials, with Hogan performing the feat twice (1946-47 and 1952-53). It was Johnson's first top-10 finish since a T-9th at the 2012 British Open. Johnson came close to defending his John Deere title, but a bogey on the 72nd hole put him in a playoff that Jordan Spieth won on the fifth extra hole. Despite the loss, he started a streak where he had only one finish higher than 8th in his last eight starts of the year. Went to Scotland, finished T-6th the next week at the British Open, T-4th at WGC-Bridgestone, T-8th at PGA Championship, T-5th at Wyndham, and T-27th at the Deutsche Bank Championship. Took off the Barclays week to attend his brother's wedding in Chicago, then won the BMW Championship, shooting a final-round 65 in a Monday finish. Added his eighth top-10 of the season at the Tour Championship, finishing T-7th, and was one of only three players with all four rounds in the 60s. Finished 5th in the FedExCup standings and 9th on the money list. Capped the year by winning three of his four Presidents Cup matches in his third appearance, then defeated Tiger Woods in a playoff at Woods' own event, the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge.
2014 Notes: Won the Hyundai Tournament of Champions by one stroke over Jordan Spieth, then finished T-8th at the Sony Open in Hawaii and T-3rd at the Humana Challenge. Was in the running at the Valero Texas Open before shooting 72 in the final round to finish T-6th. Was runner-up for the second consecutive year at the John Deere Classic. Made it to the Tour Championship for the sixth time in eight seasons of the FedExCup era, finishing 21st at East Lake GC and 18th in the FedExCup standings. At the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles in Scotland, he went 0-2-1 in his three matches as the European team won.
2015 Notes: Finished 7th in trying to defend his Hyundai Tournament of Champions title. Was T-10th at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and T-9th at the Arnold Palmer and Masters. Best finish of the year was a 5th-place result at the AT&T Byron Nelson, which was followed by a 6th at the Travelers Championship. Had a great four-week stretch in which he finished 6th at the Travelers, then T-3rd at the John Deere Classic, just one stroke short of reaching the playoff. The next week, he entered the final round of the 144th British Open trailing Jason Day, amateur Paul Dunne and Louis Oosthuizen by three, but shot a final-round, six-under 66 (equaling the fifth-lowest score by a champion), then won in a four-hole aggregate playoff over Oosthuizen and Marc Leishman. Improved his playoff record to 4-1 as he finished the four holes at one-under-par, topping 2010 champ Oosthuizen's even-par total and Leishman's two-over tally. In the process, he became the 14th player to win the Masters and the British Open in a career, and the sixth player to win majors at Augusta National and St. Andrews, joining Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Seve Ballesteros, Nick Faldo and Sam Snead. His 12th PGA Tour victory came in his 307th start, and he has won eight out of the last nine years on Tour. Earned two top-10s in his four FedExCup playoffs: T-4th at The Barclays and T-8th at the Tour Championship. Finished the year 6th in the FedExCup standings and 8th on the money list. Went 3-0-1 in his four Presidents Cup matches.

In defense of his British Open title, finished T-12th. Played in 24 events and had five top-10s. He ranked 57th in the FedExCup standings and 58th on the money list. Qualified for his fifth Ryder Cup team and went 2-1 in his three matches in the 17-11 U.S. victory at Hazeltine. The week was highlighted by a 4 & 3 victory in his singles match against Ryder Cup rookie Matthew Fitzpatrick.
2017 Notes: T-6th at the Sony Open in Hawaii. Reached the round of 16 at the WGC-Dell Match Play, losing to Dustin Johnson, and finished T-9th. Finished T-5th at the John Deere Classic.
