COVINGTON, GA — Bridgestone Tour team member Jennifer Johnson treated
golf fans to a record-setting performance this week at the 2013 Mobile Bay LPGA
Classic, using weekend rounds of 65-65 to post a tournament best 21-under par total
and record her first career LPGA victory.
Johnson's maiden victory came in thrilling fashion, birdieing 4 of the last 6 holes
for a one-shot victory. With the win, Johnson earned $180,000 and vaulted into 14th
