MURRELLS INLET, S.C. – Ben James (Milford, Conn.) survived a sudden playoff and Katie Cranston (Oakville, Ont., Canada) played brilliantly to rally from a four-stroke deficit to win the Dustin Johnson World Junior Golf Championship presented by LA Golf Sunday at TPC Myrtle Beach.


James shot a pair of 67s in the tournament’s opening two days, taking a three-shot lead into the final round, but what seemed like a coronation for America’s top-ranked junior turned into a dogfight on a sunny but windy day.

The University of Virginia signee, bogeyed four of the first six holes and had a pair of back nine doubles, forcing him to birdie TPC’s par 5 18th to shoot 76 and tie Jack Roberts (St., Mary’s, Ga.) at 6-under par.

Roberts began the day five shots back of James but fired a 71, including two birdies down the stretch, to earn his share of the lead after 54 holes.

Ryder Cowan of Edmond tied for 13th at 2-over 218 after rounds of 73-71-74.
