Zach attack

JERSEY CITY, N.J. – Zach Johnson birdied holes 13-17 for a back-nine 30 and shot 67 in the third round of The Barclays. No big surprise there, after all Johnson entered the week first on Tour in third-round scoring (68.19). Let’s not forget the season-low 60 he posted in May in San Antonio in – you guessed it – the third round.

But here’s a stat that stunned me. Johnson is second on Tour in eagles this year with 11, behind only Bubba Watson. It just goes to show you don’t have to be a bomber as long as you can work the flatstick.

Johnson (4 under, T-7) will get plenty of Sunday TV time as he bids for his third title of the season. He’s paired with Tiger Woods for the fourth straight day.
