“This week was really tough,” said Johnson. The greens were really firm, and the wind was up, especially today, so judging some shots was really tough. The greens are really small; you just have to get there, or it's a tough up-and-down."

Johnson added, "I struck the ball really well this week, but I putted even better, and I think that's what helped me. So, all in and out, it was a great day, great week, it was awesome."

Chris Culler of Camden secured second place, finishing with an overall tournament score of 8-over par 224.
