Kuchar-Johnson team sets record in charity classic
BARRINGTON, R.I. (AP) Matt Kuchar and Zach Johnson won the CVS Caremark Charity Classic with a record-setting two-round total of 24-under par 118 Tuesday at the Rhode Island Country Club.
The previous record in the best-ball format was 119 set in 2001.
Morgan Pressel and Davis Love III finished second at 120.
Johnson was upset he missed makable birdie putts on the 15th and 16th holes. Johnson rolled in a 5-foot birdie putt on the par 3, 145-yard 17th hole to put his team four strokes ahead of Pressel and Love with one hole left.
"We both had really good opportunities on 16," Johnson said. "I left mine short from 15 feet. And on the previous hole I had about seven or eight feet and I missed that one, too. So I was a little upset."
The winners split $300,000.
