Golf – Saudi International: Dustin Johnson Wins First European Title
In the wake of shooting 67 and leaving Li Haotong behind by only 2 shots, Dustin Johnson asserted his first European Tour title at the Saudi International.
At the Royal Greens Golf and Country Club, Li checked four birds in a dazzling third-round showcase, and the two shared the lead heading into the last day’s play.
Previous world number one Johnson birdied the last two holes to complete 19-under standard for the competition and Li’s gain at the final guaranteed he completed in front of Tom Lewis, who began his round with five birdies on the ricochet.
Albeit both dropped a shot at the tenth, Johnson thought that it was simpler to disregard that failure as he grabbed shots on consecutive holes following, while Li lined up two pars with two further bogeys.
Johnson could have faced some inconvenience due to water at 16, however the American demonstrated his forces of recuperation to escape with a bogey.
Moreover, Li could deliver no rehash of Saturday’s heroics, when he shut hawk bird to sign for a 62, with Johnson guaranteed of the crown after Englishman Lewis’ promising beginning failed out in a run of six pars from the thirteenth to the final.
