THOUSAND OAKS, California - Zach Johnson has upstaged tournament host Tiger Woods in a playoff to win the World Challenge golf tournament.

Johnson salvaged a stunning par at the 72nd hole then beat Woods at the first extra hole, denying the world No.1 a sixth victory in the unofficial tournament he hosts for the benefit of his charitable foundation.

Australia's Jason Day was tied for ninth in the elite 18-man field after a closing 74.
