Johnson wins The Open Championship in four hole playoff; Niebrugge finishes four strokes back

Zach Johnson held off Louis Oosthuizen and Marc Leishman in a playoff Monday at St. Andrews, taking the title at The Open Championship and setting the stage for the PGA Championship next month at Whistling Straits.

Jordan Spieth, in his attempt to win a third major this year, was tied for the lead after hitting a long birdie putt on 16, but finished one stroke behind the three leaders at the end of Monday's final round.

Johnson outlasted Leishman and Oosthuizen in four playoff holes. Mequon's Jordan Niebrugge, an amateur, capped an impressive weekend just four strokes behind the leaders.

The PGA Championship runs from August 13-16 at Whistling Straits, a tournament you'll see on CBS 58.
