Stat Line of the Night — 7/18/2013 — Zach Johnson
It was a slow day in the sporting world yesterday, so for this edition of the “Stat Line of the Night,” we take you all the way to East Lothian, Scotland, for the opening round of the 2013 British Open Championship. It was there that Zach Johnson took the early lead on the rest of the field with a first round score of 66.
Johnson would record that opening round score of 5-under par thanks in large part to an eagle on the par-5 fifth hole, to go along with birdies on the third, six, seventh and twelfth holes. That allowed him to enter the clubhouse with a one-stroke lead over Rafael Cabrera Bello, and it also earns him “The Stat Line of the Night” for Thursday, July 18, 2013.
