Iowa native Zach Johnson hopes a strong finish at the John Deere Classic provides him with momentum heading into this week’s British Open.
Johnson finished in a three-way tie for second at 17-under par, his best finish in eight tries at the John Deere Classic. "The last two rounds were obviously very good…My putter was great and I hit a lot of solid shots," Johnson said after the tournament. "More positive than negatives and that’s really all I can ask for, especially considering this is kind of my fifth major so I just never play well here and it’s nice when I can play well here and I’m (in) decent shape heading into next week."
Johnson was 12-under par on his final two rounds. "I’m never content with that…you always want to win. I just want to give myself opportunities to be in contention," Johnson says. "That’s why I play the game of golf."
The British Open begins on Thursday.
