Kevin James Johnson (born April 25, 1967) is an American professional golfer who currently plays on the Web.com Tour.

College career[edit]

Johnson was born in Plymouth, Massachusetts. He attended Clemson University and was Clemson's first three-time All-American in golf (he was a third-team choice in 1987 as a sophomore, then made first-team as a junior and second-team as a senior). He was inducted into the Clemson Hall of Fame in 2002. He also won the U.S. Amateur Public Links in 1987.

Professional career[edit]

Johnson has made about eighty percent of his career earnings while playing on the Nationwide Tour, where he has won six times, twice during the 2009 season. The first came in a playoff victory over Jeff Gallagher at the Rex Hospital Open, and the second came at the Knoxville Open in a two-hole playoff win over Bradley Iles. However he has not found much success on the PGA Tour, making only 17 cuts in 41 tries. In 2009, he finished 13th on the Nationwide Tour money list to earn his 2010 PGA Tour card.

Personal life[edit]

Johnson credits his father, Ken, as his hero for helping him succeed in golf. He has been married since 1998 to wife, Christa. They have two daughters; Jordan Paige (born 2000) and Jade Alexandra (born 2002).
