Associated Press
The golf roundup …
MILWAUKEE ó Richard S. Johnson birdied three of his last four holes for a 6-under-par 64 to earn is first PGA Tour victory. He finished at 16-under 264 and became the seventh first-time winner on the tour this year.
Ken Duke closed with a 65 and was the runner-up at Brown Deer Park Golf Course.
Dean Wilson (65), Chad Campbell (65) and Chris Riley (66) tied for third at 13-under.
Kenny Perry closed brilliantly with a 64 to get to 12-under and finish tied for sixth with three other golfers. He had been criticized for skipping the British Open to play this event after winning three of his last five tournaments, including last week’s John Deere Classic.
Perry chose to play in Milwaukee because he felt he had the best chance of picking up points so he can make this year’s Ryder Cup team. The event is being held in his native Kentucky.
– SPRINGFIELD, Ill. ó Second-year LPGA golfer Ji Young Oh won her first tournament, sinking a 6-inch putt for par to win the State Farm Classic.
– BLAINE, Minn. ó R.W. Eaks was the runaway winner in the Champions Tour 3M Championship, posting the lowest score in the tournament’s 16-year history.
