Kohut Finishes Fast, Second

September 04, 1998

J.T. Kohut of Simi Valley made a 15-foot putt at the 18th hole to force a playoff, but finished second when Brett Johnson of Hilton Head, S.C. made par on the first sudden-death hole Sunday at the Ping/Phoenix Junior Championship at the Karsten Golf Course in Tempe, Ariz.

It was the second runner-up finish of the year in an AJGA event for Kohut, who was second at the ClubCorp Junior Championship at Firestone Country Club in May.

Johnson and Kohut, a Westlake High senior, finished regulation at four-under-par 212.

Ryan Wyman of Valencia tied for eighth at 219.

Anne Lee of Northridge tied for fifth in the girls' division at six-over-par 222, seven strokes behind winner Jimin Kang of Edmonds, Wash. Julie Park of Granada Hills tied for ninth at 225.
