More British Open: Leaderboard | Final Round Recap | Jordan Spieth misses the mark
Augusta National and the Old Course at St. Andrews: If there are two more celebrated courses on the planet, I don’t have any acquaintance with them. The list of golfers who have won significant titles at both just got a little bit longer on Monday as Zach Johnson vanquished Marc Leishman and Louis Oosthuizen in a four-hole playoff at the 2015 British Open.
Johnson’s total score was 1 under. He beat Oosthuizen by one and Leishman by three. His 66 on Monday was the least last round of his career and the most reduced last round for a British Open champion at St. Andrews.
Be that as it may, first things first. Johnson needed to make birdie on the last hole to try and get into the playoff. It was an immense putt that evoked an enormous response from both Johnson and his caddie Damon Green.
Johnson joins Tiger Woods, Nick Faldo, Seve Ballesteros, Jack Nicklaus and Sam Snead as the main six golfers to win at both the Old Course and Augusta. He’s just the fourteenth ever to win the Masters and The Open Championship. Those are great records to be on. They’re just not records on which Johnson ever thought he’d discover his name.
At the point when gotten some information about his chances at different tournaments, Johnson gave an intriguing reaction.
“I don’t even know where the Open is,” said Johnson before being let it know was at St. Andrews. “That is my slightest most loved in the turn. I say that and I cherish that tournament and I sitll like St. Andrews. That is the amount I adore that tournament. I think St. Andrews is tremendous and it’s my least favorite.”
