The Shots That Defined The British Open

From good to bad, these are the moments that shaped the outcome at Muirfield

July 2013
Zach Johnson

Zach Johnson's eagle putt, fifth hole, first round 

A 45-footer for eagle early got Johnson, who lost in a playoff at the John Deere Classic the week before, off to a fantastic start. But Johnson wasn't done, adding back-to-back birdies at holes 6 and 7 and another on the 12th. Add it all up and his opening round 66 gave him his first end-of-the-day lead at a major championship since he captured the 2007 Masters.
