Zach Johnson Rallies to Win BMW Championship

Zach Johnson walks up to the 17th green during the Final Round of the BMW Championship at Conway Farms Golf Club on September 16, 2013 in Lake Forest.

Zach Johnson has won the BMW Championship with a 6-under 65, and now has a chance to win something bigger.

Johnson made two big birdie putts over the closing holes at soggy Conway Farms on Monday to dole out more final-round disappointment for Jim Furyk. Furyk remains winless in three years and now has failed to win the last six times he has at least a share of the lead going into the final round.

The win puts Johnson at No. 4 in the FedEx Cup going into the finale next week at East Lake. That means all he has to do is win the Tour Championship to collect the $10 million bonus.

Nick Watney shot 64 and played his way into the Tour Championship.
