Johnson Rallies to Beat Woods in World Challenge

By  | 

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) - Zach Johnson delivered the kind of theatrics that usually belong to Tiger Woods to win the World Challenge.

Johnson holed out for par from the drop area on the 18th hole at Sherwood that got him into a playoff, and he won when Woods hit a poor shot into the bunker and missed a 5-foot par putt on the first extra hole.

The final World Challenge at Sherwood after 14 years was set up for the perfect sendoff. There was a record crowd and the tournament host was poised to win. Instead, Johnson rallied from four shots down with eight holes to play for his second win this year.

Johnson moves into the top 10 in the world for the first time in his career.
