Play of the Week 38

December 8, 2013

Back to posting.

I know it’s been awhile since LG and I gave you something of substance, but this one is worth it.

The 2013 Northwestern Mutual World Challenge commenced today in stunning fashion. Zach Johnson, appearing to be in control on the 18th hole at Sherwood Country Club, dunked a ball into the water hazard on the 18th hole. Rather than playing safe or behaving like a weekend hacker, ZJ did what champions do–he holed out the next shot to save par. Tiger Woods saved par as well from a greenside bunker leading to a playoff in which ZJ took the title. See video of the shot found at http://www.pgatour.com/daily-wrapup/2013/12/08/WorldChallenge-4.html

It seems that many of the outlets are forgetting–ZJ did this in 2011 as well, the last time he went toe-to-toe with Tiger at Sherwood (ultimately losing in Tiger’s return to the victory circle following his scandal). See video at http://losangeles.sbnation.com/2011/12/3/2608852/chevron-world-challenge-2011-zach-johnson-hole-out-video-tiger-woods. I guess when a certain hole works for you, it works for you. It’s no wonder they’re moving “Tiger’s Tournament” away from this course next year, which appears by all accounts to be ZJ’s course.

Well done ZJ. Congrats on the spectacular finish and win.

now enjoy that trophy with the name and logo of the dude you just beat on it….

they did not plan for ZJ to win this event
