ZACH JOHNSON IS the Masters champion you did not know 48 hours ago. He's not Tiger. He's not Phil, or Retief or Ernie or Vijay. You know those guys. Zach? Well, he won his first major and he is the pride of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. He's down to earth, a regular guy. He might be the most famous guy from Iowa since the fictional Radar O'Reilly. "He's like an Iowa kid.Kind of naive, very humble, and just a cool guy," said Ryan Hartman, Johnson's former teammate at Drake University in Des Moines and one of his closest friends.

MICHIGAN'S TREY Burke rushed into the frontcourt, trying to take advantage of a 2-on-1 break. At the last moment, he softly lobbed the ball toward the rim, where Glenn Robinson III slammed it through the hoop. That was the beginning of Michigan's latest offensive clinic, a highlight reel of dunks, three-pointers, and smart passing that overwhelmed visiting Iowa in a 95-67 rout Sunday. Burke had 19 points and a career-high 12 assists for the second-ranked Wolverines. Robinson had 20 points and 10 rebounds.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker presents himself as a kind of Midwestern Everyman. He buys cheap shirts and sweaters at Kohl's. He drinks Miller beer. He drives a Harley-Davidson Road King. And he packs a punch. Walker, set Monday to become the 15th declared Republican presidential candidate, has enacted an aggressive conservative agenda in a blue state in a manner that belies his homespun homilies and baby face. Those two factors have helped propel Walker, 47, into the first tier of the 2016 GOP field.

BOONE, Iowa - First they rode hogs. Then, they ate them. Freshman Sen. Joni Ernst, a Republican, drew seven presidential candidates and about 1,000 activists to her inaugural "Roast and Ride," the latest entrant in Iowa's long history of food-centric retail political events. "Live to ride and ride to live!" Ernst, stoked on a Monster energy drink, said. Revving her 2009 Harley-Davidson Softail, Ernst led Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and 300 other riders from a dealership in Des Moines on a 39-mile cruise to the exposition grounds here, site of the August Iowa Straw Poll.

DES MOINES, Iowa - Talk about juice. Bruce Rastetter, a multimillionaire agribusiness baron and the largest GOP donor in Iowa, got almost all of the potential 2016 Republican presidential candidates - at least 11 of them - to agree to come to the Iowa State Fairgrounds on Saturday for a forum on agriculture issues. They were to sit down on stage for one-on-one, 20-minute interviews with Rastetter, discussing their positions on labeling for genetically modified food, proposed federal regulation of groundwater, foreign trade agreements - and, perhaps above all, the future of Iowa's important corn-based ethanol industry.

DES MOINES, Iowa - This time, the presidential cattle call was held at the state fairgrounds - which seemed appropriate, given the topics. Corn-based ethanol, immigration, genetically modified food, wind-energy tax credits, groundwater regulations, crop insurance, trade. Over seven hours, nine potential Republican candidates addressed detailed questions about those and other issues important to the agricultural industry in Iowa, the state that produces about 10 percent of the nation's food, and, more important, holds the first 2016 nominating contest.

WINDSOR HEIGHTS, Iowa - Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, everybody's favorite Bible-quoting, bass-guitar-playing Republican presidential candidate, is back on the trail, seven years after he won this state's caucuses. On Sunday night, he arrived at the Walnut Creek Church next to I-235 in the suburbs of Des Moines to sign copies of his new book, God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy , for about 50 fans. "Back when he ran in 2007-2008, the question was, who is Mike Huckabee," said Pastor Terry Amman, welcoming him with a slightly deflated cardinal-and-gold Iowa State University souvenir football.

DES MOINES, Iowa - For months, the 2016 Republican presidential race has been dominated by the "invisible primary" scramble for the backing of the party's donor class. On Saturday, it goes grassroots. At least eight likely candidates will give their pitches to 1,500 conservative activists at the Iowa Freedom Summit in Des Moines, trying to seduce the people who pack a punch in the GOP caucuses, where the first votes of the party's nominating process are scheduled to be cast in a little over a year.

DES MOINES, Iowa - A Republican presidential nomination campaign that is shaping up as even more wide open than the last one opened Saturday as at least eight likely candidates competed to inspire conservative activists packed into a Victorian theater here for 9½ hours of rhetoric and networking. The event illustrated the party's challenge: to find a candidate who can win the loyalty of the grassroots base without moving too far to the right and jeopardizing the GOP's chances of victory in the general election.

DES MOINES, Iowa - New Jersey Gov. Christie told an audience of more than 1,000 Iowa conservative activists at a conference here Saturday that he shares the same political values, deriding the "conventional wisdom" that says he's too moderate for the state that will cast the first votes in the 2016 Republican presidential race in a little more than a year. "Let me ask you this, if I was too blunt, too direct, too loud, and too New Jersey for Iowa, then why do you people keep inviting me back?"
