Pettit wins NCAA men’s title with closing even-par 70


Johnston seemed to be out of contention after a double bogey on the long par-4 seventh. The sophomore from from tiny Libby, Montana — population of about 3,000 — surged back into contention with three birdies in four holes, starting on No. 9.

Johnston moved to within a shot of the lead at 6 under with a birdie on the par-4 15th and lipped out a 30-foot putt on the par-3 16th. He landed in a bunker well short on No. 17, hit to about 25 feet and left his birdie putt short.


An errant tee shot into the desert left of the 18th fairway led to a bogey, dropping Johnston two back.

Arizona State surged into the No. 1 seed for the start of Tuesday’s match play with a 5-under round to pass Oklahoma State.


The Cowboys led Oklahoma by 12 shots and the Sun Devils by 14, but shot 12 over in the final qualifying round before the field was cut to eight for match play.

Jin was 9 under through three rounds, in position to give Oklahoma State two straight national champions after Matthew Wolff won in 2019.


Playing on opposite sides of the course, he and Pettit spent most of the afternoon trading places on the scoreboard.

Jin opened with a bogey on the par-4 first hole and added a three-putt bogey on the 502-yard par-4 seventh to drop two behind Pettit, who had two birdies after starting on No. 10.
