Zach Johnson went on a tear to finish the 2013 PGA TOUR season. After a marginal first half, Johnson closed out the season with seven top-10 finishes in his final eight starts.

Johnson, who finished 18th in the FedExCup points standings, opens his 2013-14 season at this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas. So how did Johnson improve so much? Well, just take a look at the stats.

Johnson moved up a ridiculous 94 spots in scrambling from before his streak -- which started at the John Deere Classic -- to season's end (TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola). He also moved up 71 spots in strokes gained-putting and 69 positions in greens in regulation. See some of his major improvements below.
