One shot back in the 36-team field were the teams of Jordan Gibbs/Ana Ross, Mark Owen/Dustin Pimm and Dustin Volk/Pete Stone. Team Summerhays, Bruce and Joe, rounded out the top 5 teams at 7-under par. 

With the win at Valley View, Johnson and Jones were seeded second in the following day’s Four-Ball Round of 64 matches. The defending champion team of Tracy Zobell and Ryan Rhees received the No.1 seed and a bye into the Round of 32. 

Jones said, “I’m super happy to be advancing to the next round. This is our second time winning the Spring Pro-Pro but only our first time advancing out of the Four-Ball second round together. Hopefully we can keep playing well and make a deep run”
