Winner’s circle for Johnson; streaks extend for Mills, Barnes
CONGRATULATIONS, RICHARD JOHNSON — It was bound to happen sooner or later. Wales’ Richard Johnson had played in the final group four times this year without pulling off a victory. He made sure it didn’t happen again on Sunday despite an opening-hole double bogey. Four consecutive birdes on the back nine (13-16) and another birdie on the extra hole with Jeremy Anderson and Matthew Jones put the 35-year-old former Augusta State University All-American in the Nationwide Tour winner’s circle for the third time. Now fourth on the money list, Johnson is already assured he will spend 2008 on the PGA TOUR. “Everyone has a lifetime dream of playing on the PGA TOUR and I can’t wait to fulfill mine next year,” he said.
