Zach Johnson overtakes Furyk, Watney to capture BMW ChampionshipLAKE FOREST, Ill.
-- Zach Johnson won the rain-delayed BMW Championship on Monday and now has a chance to win something bigger.
Johnson rolled in two birdie putts over the closing holes at soggy Conway Farms and closed with a 6-under 65 for a two-shot victory over Nick Watney, giving him one of the top five seeds for the Tour Championship next week and a clear shot at the FedEx Cup and its $10 million prize.
His first win of the year came at the expense of Jim Furyk, who endured another dose of final-round disappointment.
Furyk's victory drought is now at three years, and he has failed to win the last six times he had at least a share of the lead going into the final round. He lost the outright lead with a bogey on the 11th hole and then fell too far behind with two more bogeys in his round of 71. He wound up alone in third.
