Spain Park repeats Bradley win

The state championship is big, but this is bigger to Spain Park golfers. The Jaguars hosted the third-annual Bradley Johnson Memorial Tournament to start the week, winning both rounds to edge UMS Wright by two strokes, 609-611, at the Greystone Country Club’s Founders Course.

Spain Park and the Bradley Johnson Memorial Foundation started the tournament in March 2007 in memory of Johnson who was killed in a car accident in March 2006. Johnson, a member of the Spain Park golf team, was one of the top junior golfers in the nation at the time of his death.

Johnson’s younger brother Michael, a sophomore, shot a 74 in the final round Tuesday to help lead Spain Park as he and teammate Conner Pratt both shot two-round scores of 151 to finish second overall. The two scores helped provide the difference for the win, as Bobby Wyatt was the only UMS-Wright player in the Top 5, winning the Bradley with a 143 score in two rounds.
