Johnson and North in US Mid Am
Johnson-NorthBeginning today, Brandon Johnson, from Beavercreek, and Jake North, from Vandalia, will tee it up in the 40th US Mid Am Championship. This edition of the championship will be held on the exclusive island of Nantucket, just off the coast of Massachusetts. The winner will receive an invitation to the 2022 Masters and the US Open at The Country Club.

The roads Brandon and Jake took to reach this level of golf differ; the beauty of the MidAm is the fact that the golfers are a little older, you must be 25 to compete. There’s more life experience among the players than in the US Amatuer when college kids seem to soak up the spotlight. Some MidAm players are reinstated pros who took a run at a dream and learned the hard way that golf doesn’t owe anybody anything. Brandon and Jake do not fall into that category. Instead, they’re among the group of talented players that fell in love with competitive golf and want to tee it up whenever they can fit golf into their busy lives.
