Jason Bohn Bags Zurich Classic Title
Jason Bohn won the Zurich classic for the second PGA tour title, winning with birdies on the third and fourth final holes at TPC Louisiana for a 5-under-67, running two strokes ahead of Jeff Overton.
Bohn finished with an 18-under-270. Prior to this win Bohn also won the B.C. Open in 2005. This victory is especially sweet since Bohn had just come from recuperating from injuries and back surgery.
“This is life changing,” said Bohn. The 37-year old admitted that he was making his putt on 18 with tears in his eyes.
“I just said I probably wouldn’t say much because I’m capturing all of this. I want to take this one to the grave. I want to remember every little detail that I missed on my first one.”
Bohn was leading in the opening round, although he admitted that he admitted that he felt the heat on Sunday when he saw several players moving into the range. Jeff Overton was the closest competition, twice tying with Bohn on his way to the 66. He birdied the 18th after missing a long eagle putt and Bohn made birdie putts on 51/2 feet on 15 and 22 feet.
