There's something about the left fairway bunker on the 18th hole at TPC Deere Run that seems to bring out the best in some of golf's top names. One year after Steve Stricker pulled off a highlight-reel shot from the bunker that eventually helped him pick up his third straight John Deere Classic win, Zach Johnson produced an equally impressive shot from the very same bunker.
Stricker's degree of difficulty was certainly higher, but let's give Johnson's some credit for his approach shot. After knocking his second shot in the water from the fairway bunker on the first playoff hole, Johnson pushed out the negative thoughts and hit a perfect shot from the very same spot that landed on the green and rolled to within a foot of the hole.
Now that's how you make the most of a second-chance opportunity.
