    CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Cedar Rapids' Zach Johnson had his third-highest finish in a major golf tournament Sunday when he tied for 6th place at the British Open at Muirfield.

    Johnson shot a final-round 72 for a total of 2-over 290. That was five shots behind champion Phil Mickelson, who roared to the title with a 66 Sunday.

    So to recap, Johnson played in a five-hole sudden death playoff a week ago in the Quad Cities, flew all the way to Scotland, matched the lowest round in this year's Open Championship with his first-round 66, and was in contention for the title until the final couple holes.

    That's kind of strong.

    Johnson's top finishes in majors:

    1st: 2007 Masters

    Tie for 3rd: 2010 PGA Championship

    Tie for 6th: 2013 British Open

    Tie for 9th: 2012 British Open

    Tie for 10th: 2009 PGA Championship
