PGA Star Zach Johnson To Serve As Iowa Honorary Captain For Maryland Game

This year is shaping up to be a big one for Iowa and its native sons. The undefeated Hawkeyes are the favorites to represent the Big Ten West in the conference championship game, while Cedar Rapids-native and 2015 winner of The Open Championship Zach Johnson is currently ranked 10th in the PGA World Golf Rankings. On Saturday, Johnson, a die-hard Hawkeyes fan, will serve as the team's honorary captain for the game against Maryland.

According to HawkCentral.com, Johnson will speak to the team in the locker room before and after the game, and will join Iowa's captains for the coin toss to start the game. That's enough to make any Iowa fan pretty jealous.
