In a spot where a two-putt par would have been fantastic, Zach Johnson went ahead and did one better at Royal Birkdale on Sunday.

Zach Johnson, winner of the 2015 Open Championship at St. Andrews, is quite comfortable with links golf.

Playing the eighth hole at Royal Birkdale in the final round of the 2017 Open on Sunday, Johnson was just off the back of the green on the 458-yard, par 4. As the commentator noted, a two-putt par and move along to the next tee would have been tremendous.

Johnson, a two-time major winner, did one better.

He buried the thing:

That putt put Johnson at even for the week. He would also birdie the ninth to get to 3 under for the day and 1 under for the tournament.
