Kamaiu Johnson wins first World Wide Technology bonus pool reward as Lexus Cup and Mastercard APGA Tour Championship winner
World Wide Technology Player Development Program Awards $20,000 to Top Golfers
August 16, 2022 – APGA Tour Championship winner Kamaiu Johnson becomes the first player to win the World Wide Technology Player Development Program bonus pool reward with his victory in the Mastercard APGA Tour Championship at TPC San Antonio last week.
Johnson earned the bonus pool top prize of $7,500 after his birdie on the closing hole led to a one-stroke victory in the Mastercard APGA Tour Championship. He finished 7-under-par for the tournament and his final round 67 gave the Florida resident low round honors for the event. The win also made Johnson the winner of the season-long Lexus Cup Point Standings competition.
Johnson made international news in 2021 due to his unique backstory of perseverance and when his exemption into the PGA TOUR's Farmers Insurance Open was scuttled by a positive COVID-19 test. The dream-shattered narrative drew massive media attention and the PGA TOUR and its sponsors responded by offering Johnson exemptions into three tournaments later last year.
"The APGA Tour has given myself and my fellow competitors an amazing opportunity to develop our game at some of the finest courses in America while also connecting us to companies like World Wide Technology that are making honest and impactful efforts to grow diversity in the game," Johnson said. "The money and support from the World Wide Technology Player Development Bonus Program gives us the financial support required by the cost of travel, equipment, training and other needs to chase our dreams in the highly competitive world of professional golf. In addition to the financial support, the opportunity to compete for a spot at the World Wide Technology Mayakoba Championship is another chance to test ourselves with the greatest players in the world."
