KING ABDULLAH ECONOMIC CITY, Saudi Arabia (AP) — 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.
