Zach Johnson holed a shot from the drop zone on the 18th hole on Sunday to stay tied with Tiger Woods at the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge tournament.

The pair went into a sudden-death playoff, and Johnson won the tournament when Woods missed an easy putt on the second playoff hole. Johnson entered the day two strokes back from Woods, but finished with the victory.
