GOLF CHANNEL’S BRANDEL CHAMBLEE GIVES HIS TAKE: Zach Johnson is the answer to a trivia question: Which player with the last name Johnson should have won the 2010 PGA Championship if he hadn’t played No. 18 3-over par for the week? Nope, not Dustin. Zach missed the playoff by one shot, and for the fourth year in a row he won on the PGA Tour. The only player in Tour history to have multiple rounds of 60 beats up par fours with relentless precision and great putting. His flat swing makes it tough for him to play out of the rough, but he is not there much.
