This week marks the fifth anniversary of Titleist Brand Ambassador Zach Johnson's trip to Butler Cabin to accept the green jacket as 2007 Masters champion.
Trusting a Pro V1x golf ball and bag of Titleist equipment, Zach birdied three of his final six holes that Sunday at a gusty Augusta National for a closing 3-under 69 and two-shot victory over some of golf's biggest names.
Later that evening in the Masters media center, Zach delivered what would become one of the Masters' more memorable lines: "I'm Zach Johnson from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. That's about it. I'm a normal guy."
Team Titleist recently caught up with the "normal guy" to talk about his extraordinary feat and the confidence he had in his golf ball and equipment coming down the stretch on golf's most pressure-packed day – especially on his second shot into No. 11, which players in a recent Sports Illustrated survey ranked as the "hardest shot' at Augusta National.
Check it out in the above video.
Zach played a brilliant Master's that year. His short game was in great shape. A win, at Augusta...something to last a life time.
