A slice is almost never a golfer’s favorite thing, but in the case of Riley Johnson, it’s pretty close. Johnson is a standout on the course, a two-time North Dakota state champion who has been recognized as the Gophers’ hardest worker at team award banquets and named a captain for his upcoming senior season. In this area of Johnson’s life, a slice can turn a round from great to average and derail what otherwise might have been a good day on the course. His life isn’t limited to golf though. Johnson is also a pizza aficionado, so he can appreciate a good slice at the right moment.
