Zach Johnson claimed his second career major today at St. Andrews after dispatching Louis Oosthuizen and Marc Leishman in a four-hole playoff to claim the Open Championship.

Johnson missed a putt to win while up one stroke on Oosthuizen, only to see the South African miss the subsequent birdie putt that handed the Claret Jug to Johnson, who (with the help of Jesus) had previously won the Masters. Johnson struggled for words in his interview afterward with ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi, which you can view above.
