While everyone was rooting for history with Jordan Spieth Monday, it is hard to think of a better winner than Zach Johnson.
Unlike Spieth, Tiger Woods and countless others, Johnson wasn’t a young prodigy. He wasn’t even the top player on his Drake golf team.
Yet Johnson, despite his short stature, grinded his way to the top of golf. Now with 12 PGA Tour victories and 2 major titles, the gritty kid from Iowa is knocking on golf’s Hall of Fame.
Quite a story.
And thanks to Spieth for a great run at the Grand Slam. An exciting time for golf.
