VOL. 85, NO. 3 WOMEN’S

CLOSE CALLS ALL AROUND

Olsen upsets Herzog in a day of tight matches By Eric Morken and Sam Stuve Alexandria Echo Press

T

he competition level in the Women’s Division at the 2022 Resorters Tournament was on display on Wednesday afternoon. All eight matches in the field were decided by four holes or less. That meant some close calls for top seeds, but the majority of them survived into the quarterfinals. That includes top-seeded Emma Carpenter and defending champion Alayna Eldred. Carpenter won a 4-3 match, and Eldred persevered for a 3-2 win over another former champion in this field, Leah Herzog of Red Wing. The biggest upset of the day came with 14th-seeded MacKenzie Olsen knocking off last year’s runner-up, Madison Herzog of Detroit Lakes, in a 2-up match. The quarter finalists in the women’s field will tee off again on Friday afternoon to decide who will play in the semifinals on Saturday morning. Here is a look at how all of the first-round matches went on Wednesday afternoon.

Carpenter def. Bigger, 4-3

Emma Carpenter out of the University of Minnesota

withstood a challenge from Alexandria native Amanda Bigger to win 4-3. Carpenter took the first two holes with pars before Bigger had a nice up and down out of the sand on No. 3 to get a birdie win of her own. Carpenter shot back with a birdie win on the par-five 6th, but Bigger again responded with the next two wins — with par on 7 and a bogey on 10. That left things all square. Carpenter stayed patient and capitalized on a double bogey by Bigger at 10. A win there moved Carpenter to one up, and she used a par win at 13 to take final control of the match on her way into the quarterfinals.

Sommers def. Catherine Monty, 2-up

The No. 9 seed Catherine Monty and No. 8 seed Samantha Sommers were dead locked after nine holes. But with three holes won on the back nine, including the par 5 12th and 14th, Sommers came away with the 1-up win. Sommers got off to a good start with a birdie and par win at 1 and 2. Monty did not back down as she took 4 and 7 with pars before the two exchanged par wins over eight and nine.

Stockmoe def. Heinen, 19 holes

Alexandria’s Lauren Stockmoe held off 2020 champion Ale Heinen in 19 holes. Stockmoe led by four at the turn. She took Nos. 1, 5, 7 and 9 with pars around a bogey win at 4. Heinen got a par win at 6 to stay within striking distance, and then went on a run on the back nine. Heinen settled in to earn par wins at Nos. 11 and 12 and then added a birdie win at 14 to move within one. The two halved the next three holes, setting up Heinen to take 18 and force a playoff. She could not quite finish the job as Stockmoe bounced back to win on the first playoff hole and advance to Friday’s quarterfinals.

Skaar def. Larson, 2-1

With three pars that led to three holes won on the front nine, the No. 5 seed Leah Skaar had a 3-up advantage heading to the back nine over No. 12 seed Cora Larson. Larson did make a dent in Skaar’s lead, but Skaar held on to win 2-1. Skaar won holes 1, 5, 8 and 14, the latter of which she birdied, while Larson won holes 12 and 15. Both players halved Nos. 16 and 17 to end the

MEN’S CHAMP

Cox downs defending champ Rest of top qualifiers advance By Eric Morken Alexandria Echo Press The round of 16 for the Men’s Championship Division is set with many of the top seeds advancing from the opening round. One exception to that is the defending champ. Alexandria’s Braeden Sladek fell in a 3-2 final to 31st-seeded Kyle Cox. Cox is a Carrollton, Texas native who plays for the University of Texas-Arlington. Here is a look at how the matches played out on Wednesday.

Nate bounced back with a birdie and par win of his own at 6 and 7, but Nicholas was back to one up after he birdied both 8 and 9 going into the turn. Nate took control on the back nine. He birdied holes 10 and 11 to retake the lead and then added a par win on 12. Two more birdies on 14 and 15 put an end to the match.

Two Alexandrians go head to head in final round of putting contest The event went until last light on Wednesday By Thalen Zimmerman ALEXANDRIA – As the sun tucked itself below the horizon, a sliver of last light illuminated the putting green at the Alexandria Golf Club when Lukas Bigger, 25, of Alexandria secured the win in the annual Resorters putting contest over fellow Alexandrian Aaron Johnson, 26, on Wednesday. “I think it’s a fun thing… Something to burn some time,” said Bigger. “Secure the dub. It’s always fun.” As far as the prize, he says he may give it to his brother-in-law as a tip since he’s been carrying Bigger’s golf bag around all week. Delays earlier in the day pushed the contest back as officials had to wait for contestants to arrive at the green. And as putters slowly

Bigger said one of the challenges was how dark it got at the end. Bigger started golfing around 5 years old after his dad picked up the sport as a

hobby. He says his competitive nature drives him to keep golfing. That and “going out on the weekends with the fellas and having a good time out on the course.” “I grew up just playing it with a bunch of friends. As

By Eric Morken Alexandria Echo Press Wednesday’s round of 16 in the Senior Division saw a few more matches go to the higher seeds as Lance Sunder (25th), Brant Mcleod (20th) and Eric Peterson (22nd) all continued their strong stretch of play to earn a spot in Thursday’s quarterfinals. Joining them there is 16th seeded Jeff Pederson, 12th-seeded Mike Herzog, defending champion and second-seeded Mark Lindberg, two-time division champ Chris Haugen, and third-seeded Tom Abrahamson.

MEN’S EXECUTIVE

Champion and medalist roll on in Men’s Executive But there were a few upsets By Al Edenloff aedenloff@echopress.com Four time division champion Troy Johnson of Maple Grove and this year’s medalist Geoff Klein breezed to quick victories during a windy Wednesday in the Men’s Executive Division. Both their matches were over after 14 holes. The second-seed, Bryan Hoops, who shot a 71 in qualifying, also had a short match, winning in just 11 holes. But not all the matches were lopsided. Ninth seeded Andew Petersen needed all 18 holes to defeat the 24th seed, Steve Tax; the fourth seed, Chad Hacker, took 17 holes to put away the 19th seed, Tyler Wirth; and the seventh seed Daryl Schomer survived a 17-hole match against the 26th seed, Chad Marlow. There were also some upsets. Daniel Klein, the 22nd seed, knocked out 11th-seeded Chad Bisson; Jeffry Cota, the 21st seed, defeated Troy Nygaard, the 12th seed; and the 20th seed, Chris Cattoor edged the 13th seed, Tom Heimerman. The 16 golfers who outlasted the wind and their opponents will tee it up today at 12:55 p.m. from the No. 1 tee. Meanwhile, here’s a look back at yesterday’s matches:

Klein def. Bell, 6-4

Medalist Geoff Klein continues to swing a hot club. He made four birdies in his match against Joshua Bell, which propelled him to a 6-4 win. The match was close through the first five holes. Starting on the No. 10 tee, Bell won the hole with a bogey. Klein recovered with a birdie on No. 11 and stole the lead with a par on No. 12. Bell, however, answered with a birdie on No. 14 to tie the match. Klein then reeled off four straight wins, highlighted by birdies on Nos. 16 and 18 to take a 4-up lead at the turn. Bell’s par on No. 1 cut the lead two three. But after halving the next

Williams def. Decko, 6-4

The match between the No. 16 seed, Mike Williams, and the 17th seed, Jeremy Decko began with bogeys on No. 10. Williams then went on a tear, winning four of the next five holes with a par, two birdies and another par to go 4-up. Decko tried to get back in it but could only match Williams’ bogey on No. 16 and pars on Nos. 17 and 18, and still trailed by four at the turn. Williams’ birdie on No. 1 put him 5-up. Decko recorded his only win of the match, a par on No. 3 but it wasn’t enough. Williams closed out the match with a par win on No. 4 and a birdie on No. 5 for a 6-4 victory.

Petersen def. Tax, 1-up

Petersen was able to stave off a late comeback from Tax to win a downto-the-wire contest. Starting from the No. 10 tee, Petersen won three holes on the first nine – Nos. 12, 15 and 18 – with par, birdie, par. Tax, meanwhile, struck for two par wins, Nos. 11 and 14. Hanging onto a 1-up lead, Peterson got some breathing room with a par win on No. 1. The match then settled into a who-will-blink-first contest as both golfers Sauer def.

Heimermann regained the lead with a par on No. 15 and the score stayed the same through the next three holes. Heimerman padded his lead with a bogey win on No. 1 and a par win on No. 3 to go 3-up. Cattoor battled back with par wins on No. 4 and 7 to cut the lead to one. Cattoor tied the match with a clutch par on No. 9 and then completed the comeback by winning the first extra hole.

A fast start carried Chad Hacker to a 3-1 victory over Tyler Wirth. Starting from the No. 10 tee, Hacker leaped out front with three par wins on the first three holes. After swapping pars on No. 13, Wirth took No. 14 with a bridie to pull within two. Hacker, however, bounced right back, winning No. 16 with a bogey and No. 18 with par to go 4-up at the turn.

Grossman won his second hole of the afternoon with a par on No. 2 but it was too little, too late. Conder’s bogey was good enough to win No. 3 and the match, 7-6.

Cota def. Nygaard, 5-3

In a match with shifting momentum, Jeffry Cota outlasted Troy Nygaard, 5-3. Nygaard took the first lead, a par on the first hole, No. 10, but Cota came back with a birdie win on the par-5 12th hole to tie it. Nygaard retained the lead with a birdie on No. 13 and padded his advantage to 2-up with a par on No. 14. That proved to be the last hole Nygaard would win.

MASTERS

Leland, Johnson step up their game Alexandria golfers win in dramatic fashion

halved the next couple holes to secure Ryan’s spot in the quarterfinals.

By Eric Morken Alexandria Echo Press Five of the top eight seeds in the Masters Division are still standing after the opening round of match play on Wednesday afternoon. That included top-seeded Steve Herzog, who rolled in an 8-7 final against 16th-seeded Michael Flesch. The tightest matches of the opening round came with 2018 Masters champion Randy Johnson storming back to beat Norty Blanchard in 19 holes, and Bruce Leland taking down three-time champ Dan Elton of Moorhead. Here is a look at how all eight matches played out ahead of Thursday’s noon start for this division off the first tee box.

Tess.mer def. Sauer, 3-2

Steve Herzog def. Flesch, 8-7

Six-time Resorters champion Steve Herzog was as dominant from the start as a golfer can be in match play on Wednesday. Herzog shot even par on the front, and that did the trick as he took all nine of the holes on a day when Flesch could not get his game going. Flesch did take hole 10 with a par, but it was Herzog’s round as he now moves on to face Gregg Mattson, the 2016 champion from the Senior Division, on Thursday.

Mattson def. Paul Peterson, 2-1

Steve Tessmer kept Ray Sauer at arm’s length most of the morning by building a 3-up cushion after par wins on 1, 3 and 4. The two exchanged wins through the rest of the front as Tessmer’s lead still sat at 3-up at the turn. Sauer hung around in the match. He got a birdie win at No. 14, but Tessmer put the match away with a par win on the 16th hole.

Empanger def. Vipond, 8-7

Johnson responded with a par win at 16. Johnson and Blanchard halved the next two holes with a bogey and a par before Johnson got the win on the 19th hole.

Comebacks and clutch play in Grand Masters Three of the four matches lasted at least 17 holes By Al Edenloff aedenloff@echopress.com Those following the Men’s Grand Masters quarterfinals Wednesday saw a little bit of everything – a blowout, a grueling extra-hole battle, a close white-knuckler of a match, and one amazing comeback. After the dust settled in all that wind out there, four golfers kept their championship hopes alive – Mike Golden, Gene Sipe, Jerry Gruidl and Dave Harris. They will tee it at 8:50 a.m. from the No. 1 on Friday. Here’s a look at how they got there (golfers started from the No. 10 tee):

Golden def. Riesberg, 6-5

Golden

Sipe

Nos. 10, 12 and 13. Riesberg hung tough, winning No. 11 with a bogey, but Golden added a bogey win on the 15th hole to go 3-up. Both golfers swapped two pars and a bogey on the next three holes, keeping Golden’s lead intact at the turn. After halving No. 1 with bogeys, Golden got a par win on No. 2 and a bogey win on No. 3 and coasted from there to a 6-5 win.

Golden, the number-one Sipe def. Douglas in seed with a medalist round of 19 holes What a battle! 81, wasted no time against Ken Sipe tied the match four Riesberg, winning three of the first four holes with pars on times, took his first lead 12

Sipe knocked down a birdie on No. 2. Sipe bounced into the lead with a par win on No. 5 and was 2-up after his bogey took No. 7. Douglas wasn’t done yet, however. He stormed back with par wins on Nos. 8 and 9 to send the match into overtime. Sipe won the first extra hole for a hard-earned victory.

12, with pars, matched Harris’ bogey on No. 13 and went 4-up with a par win on the long 14th hole. Harris got his first win of the match with a bogey on No. 15 but Way struck back with backto-back pars on Nos. 16 and 17 Gruidl Harris to go 5-up.
