When Zack Johnson started his round at the Honda Classic today, it looked as thought the wheels fell off at his second hole. Zach made a quad at the 11th hole (his 2nd) of the day. Johnson may have a slight case of the nerves. He was paired up with Tiger Woods and if you followed golf over the past few years, you know how intimidating that can be.
Somehow Johnson was able to right the ship that looked to be sinking. He finished his day at 3 under par and tied for 6th place. How did he do it? He was able to refocus and find a bunch of birdies that’s how.
Johnson was able to find a total of 7 birdies out on the course. He stated making putts that would help save his round on the 13th hole and he found 3 more on holes 16-17 and 18. When he made the turn he was back to even par.
He played the front nine flawlessly. He made birdies on holes, 3-6 and 9 to finish his day with out a bogey on his card, and at 3 under par. After the major mishap on the 11th hole. somehow this guy was able to forget about playing with Woods and he took control of his own game and showed he had what it takes to salvage a good round.
