Over the next two weekends....county amateur golf
champions will be decided.
Up today are the women's and seniors tournaments.
Women tee off at Cedar Creek.
Defending champion is Onalaska grad and South Dakota
State senior Alli Plath.
Pick up the action on hole 12...
Linda Mills with the long par putt...
She gets it to roll around the rim before it falls
Ahead to 16, Grace Onsrud with a short putt for par...
That finds the bottom of the cup on her way to an
80 for the day.
The day would belong to defending champion Alli Plath...
On 18, she misses a birdie try...
But connects on the par to finish a round of 73.
Plath wins the county-am for the second-straight year.
I was more nervous this year, with just winning last
year and I played really well last year too, so I
just wanted to live up to my sexpectations.
We swing over to Forest Hills for the Seniors county-am.
Pick up action on hole 18, Bruce Simones with a putt
to win it...
That just misses, we're headed to a two-person playoff.
First hole of the playoff, Rahn Pischke with a short
putt for par and the win...
That doesn't fall, play continues.
On the second playoff hole, Pischke from the fringe...
The ball stops just inches from the cup...
Nothing resolved, on to a third playoff hole.
After Pischke would find a bunker...
Simones with a five foot putt to claim victory...
It drops in as he claims his first ever senior county-am
title...winning the three-hole playoff.
Well, we perservered.
I don't think either one of us played the best those
three holes and I just happened to get it in a little
less than he did.
