In a grueling 21 hole Match, #4 seed 2013 Zach Johnson has just beat #13 seed 2014 Ryan Palmer 1 UP! I say grueling because Johnson had to overcome a 4 UP advantage by Palmer going to the 12th tee in regulation! I say grueling again because Palmer blew that 4 UP advantage!
The match was decided on the par 3 202 yard 3rd hole at Punta Mita. Johnson stuck his tee 58 feet from the pin but landed safely on the putting surface, a feat that demands precision at the ocean side tough par 3! Palmer unfortunately found the water on his tee shot and Johnson took the hole with a par to win the match!
So #4 seed 2013 Zach Johnson will meet #12 seed 2011 Charles Howell III in 2nd Round Play out of the Bobby Jones Bracket!
