Kohles wins Dogwood Invitational

Golfweek coverage

AJGA alum Ben Kohles won the Dogwood Invitational, held June 25-30 at Druid Hills Golf Club. Kohles closed his final round of 5-under-par 67 with a five-foot birdie putt on No. 18 to edge the competition by two strokes for a tournament total of 17-under-par 271.

No. 51 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings, Kohles joins an impressive list of past winners of the event, including 2012 U.S. Open champion and AJGA alum Webb Simpson, who won the event in 2007.
Kohles recently completed a successful collegiate career at the University of Virginia. He distinguished himself as the winningest player in the Cavalier program’s history with seven victories, including a career-ending win at the 2012 ACC Championships.
Kohles competed in six AJGA events and received honorable mention as a Rolex Junior All-American in 2008. He won the 2008 Carolinas Amateur Championship and led the Green Hope High School golf team to consecutive 4A state championship titles.
Two former AJGA players tied for second at the Dogwood Invitational with a 15-under-par 273. Michael Kim, a rising sophomore at UC-Berkeley, posted a final-round 4-under-par 68.  Kohles’ former teammate Bruce Woodall finished the final round with 5-under-par 69.
