SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- GolfLogix - the No. 1 App for Golf and a world leader in GPS and club-tracking technology - congratulates staff player Zach Johnson on moving into the top 10 of the Official Golf World Rankings following his come-from-behind Northwestern Mutual World Challenge win at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, CA.
"I hit some close shots coming down the stretch, placed myself into good numbers, where I could be aggressive," said Johnson. "I know what my talent is, including limitations, and know my game. I just like to compete, where you have you to execute, you have to hit a shot."
Showcasing the GolfLogix logo on his left sleeve, Johnson rallied from four shots behind with eight holes to play, dramatically holed out on the 72nd hole to force a playoff and then captured the title on the first playoff hole. With the win, he rose to a career-best ninth in the Official World Golf Ranking list.
"Course management is very important to my success, as my caddie, Damon, and I detail every aspect of each shot," Johnson added. "GolfLogix gives all players precise distances and similar Tour-quality data to play their best - at no cost."
