Golf's Tim Johnson Wins URI Spring Invitational
Colonials Place Second in 12-Team Tournament
May. 1, 2005
PORTSMOUTH , RI -- George Washington's Tim Johnson won the rain-shortened URI Spring Invitational with a three-under-par 68 at the par-71, 6,830-yard Green Valley Country Club in Portsmouth, RI. Sunday's final round of the 36-hole tournament was cancelled due to unplayable conditions, giving the University of Rhode Island its second-straight first-place finish in the event. GW was five strokes off the pace with a team total 297, two strokes ahead of third-place Army (299).
The rain continued throughout the night and into the morning, forcing the cancellation of Sunday's final round. The grounds crew had to squeegee some greens in the early evening in order to complete Saturday's first round.
For Johnson, a freshman from Marblehead, MA, it marked the first tournament victory of his collegiate career. The victory was even more impressive considering that Johnson had to play through the worst conditions of the day in the late afternoon Saturday and came in at 3-under-par 68. Johnson shot 1-over on the front nine, but birdied the 10th to get back to even and then birdied his last three holes to go 4-under on the back nine.
The Colonials return to Rhode Island Friday to compete in the 2005 Atlantic 10 Men's Golf Championship at Newport National Golf Club in Middletown, RI.
