Zach Johnson is a Wizard


In hindsight, Zach Johnson’s birdie blitz, which featured eight birdies in an 11-hole stretch, on Friday at Quail Hollow Club should come as no surprise.
Charlotte, N.C., is close enough to Georgia – where the “Z Man” has won three of his five Tour titles – and Quail Hollow, tamed to scoring perfection this year by officials in search of a spark, has an Augusta National look to it. The rough is being maintained at 2 inches, at the Masters they call that the second cut, and the greens have been rolled to slick perfection.
It all adds up to a perfect fit for the fairways-and-greens putting wizard Johnson.
