  • OLYMPICS: In E'town stop,...

    James Johnson has been a busy man the last few months as he’s prepared for the Summer Olympics in London.

    But when Rod Davis approached him about coming to Kentucky for a speaking engagement, Johnson jumped at the opportunity. He just thought the ceremony would take place in Lexington, where he wrestled for four years at the University of Kentucky.

    Still, when Davis told him he’d be traveling to Elizabethtown, the connection wasn’t lost on Johnson.

    Garrett Hinton’s quest for the KGA Amateur Match Play Championship title fell short Thursday morning at the par-72, 7,157-yard Hunting Creek Country Club in Prospect.

    Hinton, a former Elizabethtown High School standout who is entering his junior season at Eastern Kentucky University, fell in 19 holes to Transylvania University junior Jantzen Latham, who just happens to be a college roommate and teammate of Hinton’s first cousin, Clay.

    With the extended match, Hinton played 123 holes of golf in a four-day span.

    After playing 104 holes of golf in the heat the last three days, Garrett Hinton admitted he’s running more on adrenaline than energy entering today’s 18-hole final against Jantzen Latham in the KGA Amateur Match Play Championship at the par-72, 7,157-yard Hunting Creek Country Club in Prospect.
