Christa Johnson shot a 1-under 71 on Sunday at Janesville Country Club to win the Janesville LPGA Seniors Pro-Am, securing her fifth win on the LPGA Legends Tour.
Johnson finished a shot ahead of Pat Hurst, who recovered from a first-round 74 to shoot 69.
“The course was in great shape. The people were were just fantastic,” Johnson told LPGA writer Megan McGuire. “I played with some young kids, and I kind of wanted to help them out a bit and encourage them, so I think that helped encourage me to play the best I could.”
Pro players were teamed with local amateurs in a separate competition.
The senior pro-am was the first of its kind on the Legends Tour, The Gazette reported in June.
