Did some­body say clos­est to the pin?

Golf Digest (South Africa) - - Play Your Best - By zach john­son

prob­a­bly like any­one with a “z” name, I get a lot of nick­names.The one I se­cretly like best is Z-Money. It sounds like some­one who gets it done un­der pres­sure, and that’s big for a tour player. ▶ As a kid play­ing ev­ery­thing, I wanted the ball with the clock run­ning down. I didn’t al­ways score, but I had to be in on the play. One of the cool things about golf is, there are a ton of those mean­ing­ful mo­ments in ev­ery round.The last four or five holes, I love hav­ing the chance to stuff an iron shot in there close. Set­ting up a kick-in birdie with a tour­na­ment on the line is as good as it gets. ▶ Here’s what my teacher, Mike Bender, and I have worked on to get me stick­ing more iron shots.– WITH peter morrice
