Zach Johnson Wins at the Colonial

Monday, May 31st, 2010

Zach Johnson wins again at the Colonial shooting 64 – 64 over the weekend to break the tour record at Hogan’s alley to beat Englishman Brian Davis.  His record breaking 21 under par had two amazing stats apart from the score of course, He only had 3 bogeys over the whole weekend and he hit 85% of greens in regulation.  You have to say well done Zach but hard luck Brian who was chasing his first US tour win. 
Zach’s swing is an interesting action seldom seen on the PGA or European Tour these days.  His swing plane is flatter than most also in the Hogan style if anything.  In the video below taken of Zach and his coach Mike Bender taking about the swing plane (sorry about the quality)  The interesting point in my view is that regardless of  flatter, neutral or steep action the club always points at the target line.
