AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - Zach Johnson will take a win at the Masters any day. That he did it on Easter made it even more special.

Johnson says that he "felt Jesus, I felt my grandfather, my family, everybody."

Johnson became one of the most unlikely Masters champions ever, holding off Tiger Woods to win the year's first major by two strokes.

It was only his second victory on the PGA Tour.

Johnson is known as one of the more religious players on tour, and he makes no secret of his faith.

When he climbed up on a riser behind the 18th green for an interview, he joked that he should "start preaching."

But he turned serious later, discussing a thought that was foremost in his mind the entire day.

He says regardless of tSunday's result, his responsibility is to glorify God.
