Emotional Zach Johnson loses ability to speak after winning British Open

Zach Johnson has done a lot in the game of golf, but the Claret Jug can make someone lose it.

Tom Rinaldi's been doing his damn best to try to get every player he interviews to cry during a week of clubhouse chats at The Open.

He did not have to do much to get the 2015 Champion Golfer of the Year, Zach Johnson, to break down on the 18th green after his second career major championship. Johnson started the interview with his voice broken and unable to speak into the mic, and ended it in much the same way after reflecting on what he's accomplished in the game.
