Northwestern Mutual World Challenge: Zach Johnson fights back to beat Tiger Woods in play-off
Tuesday 10 December 2013
Zach Johnson recovered from a four-shot deficit to beat Tiger Woods in a play-off at the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge late on Sunday.
Two shots behind Woods at the start of the day, Johnson fell four behind with just eight holes left before making four birdies, along with a spectacular wedge hole-out for par at the last, to take the California tournament into a play-off.
Having twice finished second to tournament host Woods in the elite limited-field event at Sherwood Country Club, Johnson reversed that position as he safely parred the first extra hole before Woods surprisingly lipped out from five feet to bogey.
