Men's Golf's Johnson Wins Monroe Invitational

CONWAY, S.C. -- Three-time men's golf All-American Dustin Johnson shot a course-record tying 62 in the third round to propel him to the title at the prestigious 67th Monroe Invitational Championship, June 13-16. The tournament was played at the Monroe Golf Club (Par 70 - 6,787 yards) in Pittsford, N.Y. The field was a select group of amateurs from around the country who were selected or had to go through a special application process to participate.

A three-time All-American, Johnson was at four-under 136 through two rounds before firing a course-record tying eight-under 62 in the third round, including six birdies and a hole-out eagle on the par-4 No. 1. The 62 was his career low and tied the record previously set by current PGA Tour player D.J. Trahan (Clemson). Johnson then played a steady round in the final 18, shooting a one-over 71 to finish at 11-under 269, four shots better than Cameron Tringale of Georgia Tech and seven shots ahead of Jarred Texter of UNLV and Vanderbilt's Jon Curran.
