Golf Programs Unveil Zach Johnson Golf Room

first_imgDES MOINES, Iowa — The Drake University men’s and women’s golf teams unveiled the Zach Johnson golf room. “We are beyond blessed by Zach Johnson’s generosity and are forever grateful for his help making this possible,” head women’s coach Rachael Pruett said. “The updates to the golf room will make an immediate impact on our early spring play. Our short games will be in “mid-season form” earlier in the season thanks to our improved golf room.” Through Johnson’s extremely generous donation, the Zach Johnson Golf Room features a new Southwest Greens putting surface, LED lighting and graphics by FASTSIGNS inside the Drake Fieldhouse. Johnson, a 1998 graduate of Drake, is the reigning British Open champion and winner of the 2007 Masters Tournament. “We now have great space to work on our putting and chipping that will hopefully transfer to the golf course when we compete in the spring. That was one area we were really lacking was a quality and realistic place to putt,” head men’s coach Matt Lewis said. “This will have an immediate impact on developing our putting and ultimately improve our scoring.  This will also help with recruiting by giving the current and future golfers a place that they want to practice in!”     Print Friendly Versionlast_img
