Second Challenge Tour title for Johnston

Andrew Johnston wins second title in a month

England’s Andrew Johnston stormed to his second Challenge Tour title in the space of a month after a blistering final round 64 secured a four stroke victory in Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge in France.

Starting the final round three  shots off the pace, Johnston tore through the field with six birdies and an eagle in his last 15 holes at Golf PGA France du Vaudreuil for a winning score of 16 under par 268 just four weeks after claiming his maiden title in the Scottish Hydro Challenge hosted by MacDonald Hotels and Resorts.

The result elevates the 25 year old to the top of the Challenge Tour Rankings as he becomes the first player of 2014 to earn more than €100,000 and joins Jake Roos and Moritz Lampert as a two-time winner this season.

“I knew I wasn't far away from the top but I knew I had to shoot a good one so just had to be patient,” he said. “The strategy this week was just to drive the ball well because if you hit the fairways you are coming in with short irons and I didn't really attack too many pins because they were in corners. So if you hit the middle of the greens you are not too far away."

Johnston, who missed much of 2013 with a shoulder injury, started the final round in a share of seventh place, three adrift of overnight leader Jens Fahrbring. But with the Swede was unable to push on, eventually closing with a 71 to finish in a four-way tie for second, Johnston seized his opportunity to take the title.
