Wagner’s Win at Sony Open

Johnson Wagner 2012 Sony OpenAs he told the San Francisco Chronicle, when Johnson Wagner took to the links this past weekend in Honolulu for the Sony Open golf tournament, he was expecting some good-natured ribbing for the moustache he grew over the holidays. He was right. “I probably got ‘Magnum P.I.’ in Maui a hundred times,” Wagner said. “And I had never really watched the show. So I Googled images of Tom Selleck and took it as a compliment. Tom Selleck is a stud.”

Taking into consideration his hard work in the offseason and his confidence, Wagner also expected to win early this year. Right again there, Johnson. Over the weekend, Wagner played bogey-free over the final 12 holes and closed with a 3-under 67 on Sunday to win the Sony Open. This victory represents only his third PGA Tour title.

Another personal victory for Wagner – this most recent victory earned him an invitation to the Masters. This time, he says, he’ll be able to enjoy it. The only other time he played Augusta National was in 2008 after winning the week before at the Houston Open.

Thanks to his victory over the weekend, Wagner also gets to book a return to the Hawaiian course next year for a two-week working vacation that starts with the Tournament of Champions at Kapalua.

“I’ve worked very hard this offseason, and it’s just really nice to see it pay off so early,” Wagner said. Among Wagner’s other goals for the year are to get into the top 50 and get into more majors. “These will take more work,” he confessed.

    Hey Scratch! I sent in a glowing report on the power bilt drivers and I havent seen it show up on your site. It may have got lost in the email wilderness. Also, I have demonstrated to numerous people just how amazing these drivers really are. Have sold 5 or 6 and ordered several of them myself for OTHER people. Maybe RockBottom Has a NICE Reward for one of their BEST Salesman! Just Maybe! Thanks Jim Davis
