Zach Johnson was able to do something at the the 2007 Mastersthat has eluded most PGA Tour golfers: tame Tiger Woods on a Sunday in a major golf tournament
Johnson, 31, ground out a Sunday round of 69 to slay a field of the world\'s best golfers and take home this year\'s green jacket, arguably the most unexpected Masters winner since Larry Mize triumphed at Augusta National in 1987. Johnson only made one cut out of last year\'s four majors, and his best finish in a major before this year was a tie for 17th in the 2005 PGA.
Johnson\'s safe playdown the stretch, and a few timely birdies, was good enough, as the rest of the field, notably the world\'s No. 1, struggled all day to catch up. Woods, who at one point on Sunday held the lead, missed crucial shots at clutch time, including a must-make birdie putt on No. 16 that all but locked in Johnson\'s win. Woods settled for a three-way tie for 2nd with Rory Sabbatini and Retief Goosen.
