Fresh off his second major golf title, Zach Johnson said Wednesday he's still in a daze from his win at St. Andrews at the 144th British Open. Johnson won the Masters in 2007.
The 39-year-old, who grew up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, joins an elite group of golfers, including Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, Sam Snead, Seve Ballesteros and Nick Faldo as the only players to win both a Green Jacket and a Claret Jug on the Old Course.
"I'm overcome with honor," Johnson told CNBC's "Squawk Box" in an interview. "To be associated with that history and that part of golf is truly humbling."
Johnson's win came in dramatic fashion after a five-day battle through wind and rain that sent the tournament into an extra day.
The victory has moved Johnson to No. 12 in the world, earning him $1.8 million in prize money to add to his $37 million in career winnings.
But for the veteran golfer, he said it's never been about the money. "It's not my motivation and never has been."
