58 yards ... into the cup. Zach's putting seemed clutch through the final round.

 

TIger and his putting speed and reads ... if his read wasn't off by a minuscule amount, his speed was off.

 

35 putts on Saturday ... Sunday?

I think Zach Johnson is poised to have a great year. He hasn't missed a cut since Merion, has top 10's in the last two Majors,  and he has gone from 31 to 9 in the WGR. And outplayng Tiger on Sunday can't hurt the psyche.

Zach blows hot and cold over his career ... it's little things ... I remember around 2009-10 or so, he held his putter so that the shaft leaned back, and it took 5 months for him to change it ... but over the last few years, he has showed up more consistently, so perhaps he is not as stubborn about changes now, and will have another great year.

I think Tiger's state of mind was fine.  He saw Zach hole out and made a great up and down from the sand on 18 in regulation.
