We received a couple questions regarding Zach Johnson's golf ball usage and its performance at The Masters, so we went straight to Zach for his video response when we caught up with him at the Verizon Heritage... 1) What went into Zach Johnson's decision to play the New Pro V1x versus the New Pro V1? 2) I'd like to ask Zach Johnson if he noticed any differences in the normal distances he hit the golf ball due to the cold weather at Augusta and if so, how did he adjust to it? Click here to see what Zach had to say.
