The storybook re-coronation of Tiger Woods had a surprise ending in Augusta, where the entire field was hobbled by blunders, and an obscure Iowan walked away with the coveted green jacket. Zach Johnson hit a three-under 69 on his last 18 holes to finish in the lead with a one-over 289, tied for the worst winning score in Masters history.
There was no shortage of gee-whizzing and aw-shucksing as the folksy Midwesterner played down his accomplishment. "'I'm from Cedar Rapids, Iowa," he said when asked to describe himself. 'That's about it. I'm a normal guy.'" Woods blamed his loss on two pairs of back-to-back bogeys on Thursday and Saturday.
