WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue men’s golfer, Erich Johnston finished second at the Indiana Open Championship at the Brickyard Crossing in Indianapolis.

It is his second second-place finish in a significant Indiana golf tournament this summer after finishing as the runner-up at the Indiana State Amateur in June.

On Friday, Johnston had the lead going into the final round and fired a one-under par 71, but Aaron Monson from Ninevah, Ind., recorded a tournament-low 63 to earn a one-stroke victory in the event.

Johnston, a junior from Fort Wayne, Ind., opened the tournament with a 69, fired back-to-back 67s before finishing with a 71 for a four-round total of 274 (-13).

Monson’s nine-under par final round earned him a tournament total of 273 and the victory, while Chris Baker of Brownstown, Ind., finished third after carding a 71 on Friday for a total of 275.
