JAMES JOHNSON is the king of the Sir Garry Sobers Golf Championships for a seventh time.

Barbados’ No.1 player officially claimed the title yesterday at the Barbados Golf Club, at Durants, with an even par 72, his best round of the four-day tournament.

That gave him a 54-hole gross 295, 11 strokes ahead of his nearest rival, defending champion Scott Stollmeyer who shot 306.

Stollmeyer posted 75 yesterday and was five shots better than third-placed Carlsen Leacock who registered 77 for each of the last two rounds. (BB)
