By Bill Cooney, PGATOUR.COM ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. -- In his ninth season on the PGA TOUR, Zach Johnson has put together quite a resume. The 36-year-old Iowa native has nine victories and an incredible 44 top-10 finishes. He's also finished second seven times. In 2009, Johnson won twice -- the Sony Open and Valero Texas Open -- had nine top 10s and finished sixth in the FedExCup standings. In 2007, Johnson won twice -- the Masters and the AT&T Classic -- had a total of five top 10s and finished seventh in the FedExCup standings. But this season might just be his best to date. "Yeah, it's in there," Johnson said after his first-round 65 at The McGladrey Classic on Thursday. "I could probably answer that question better next week." Johnson, who tees of in the second round at 12:35 ET, won the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and the John Deere Classic, while taking runner-ups at the RBC Heritage and THE PLAYERS Championship. So far, he's had six top 10s and he finished 12th in the FedExCup standings. BEST SEASONS FOR ZACH JOHNSON
