Dustin Johnson hangs on for victory at Saudi international
KING ABDULLAH ECONOMIC CITY, Saudi Arabia — Joint overnight leader Dustin Johnson shot a final-round 3-under 67 to win the Saudi International tournament by two strokes on Sunday.
The American’s overall total of 261 was enough to hold off Li Haotong of China who came into the final round with a share of the lead after a third round that included four eagles.
The Chinese golfer shot a 1-under 69 Sunday, finishing a shot ahead of England’s Tom Lewis whose spirited last-round challenge was good enough to secure third another stroke back after a 5-under 65.
American Bryson Dechambeau, who won in Dubai last week, was joint sixth, eight shots behind Johnson after a 5-under 65.
The Saudi International is new to the European Tour and is being held amid scrutiny of Saudi Arabia’s human-rights record and condemnation following the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Dustin Johnson hung on for victory over in Saudi Arabia and played some real good golf down the stretch to pull away from the field. Dustin played well all 4 rounds as he carried a 3 shot lead going into the weekend but came into the final round tied for the lead.
I was watching the final round this morning and noticed that every hole had lights. I am not sure why they would not play the final round under the lights. I can not wait for the first PGA event we get to watch that is played under the lights.
And for Superbowl Sunday lets enjoy Paulina.
