Bit of a

SHAKEUP Third-seeded Johnson goes down, but rest of top-five seeds remain By Eric Morken emorken@echopress.com

T

he Men’s Championship Division is filled with players who have already made a name for themselves in this tournament over the years and others who are trying to do that. Lincoln Johnson, a sophomore at the University of Minnesota, had plans of trying to win his first men’s championship here after some good runs in prior summers, but 30th-seeded Jim Hoselton of Phoenix, Ariz. had other plans. Hoselton, in just his second time playing the Resorters, pulled off the biggest upset of the day by knocking off Johnson by a 1-up score. Much of the rest of the field went to script as the remaining top-five seeds — defending champion Brian Choe, second-seed Ben Sigel, fourth-seed Thomas Lehman and fifth-seed Clay Kucera — all survived to see another day. Here is a look at how all 16 matches played out on Wednesday.

Clay Kucera of Chaska hits one out of the sand trap near the No. 6 green in his Men’s Division first-round match Wednesday. Kucera won a 2-1 final against Shay Conder. snuck into the field by winning a playoff during qualifying, but his play on Wednesday epitomized what kind of parity there is in this division. Bigger gave the defending champ everything he could handle before Choe did enough down the stretch to secure a 1-up win. Bigger pulled the match to within one with a birdie win at 15, and he needed to steal another one over the final three holes. Choe wouldn’t let it happen as his par on 18 took the hole and the match.

Bigger led at the turn after par wins at three and four and an eagle win on No. 6. Choe had birdie wins on hole one and the eighth hole but trailed by one heading to the 10th. That’s where Bigger took his biggest lead of the day with a birdie win that put him 2-up. Choe didn’t win last year’s title by getting easily rattled. He responded to that deficit by winning Nos. 11 and 12 to pull even. His par win at 14 gave him another lead before Bigger set up the dramatics over the final few holes with

nine to take a 1-up lead into the turn. That’s when Kelber turned it on. He birdied No. 10 to pull even and two pars on 11 and 13 gave him a twohole lead. The match ended when Kelber struck for a birdie win on 16.

SHAKEUP

a little bit longer than me off the tee and maybe a little bit sharper than me up around the green with their wedges and stuff. I’ll play aggressive when I can and be conservative when I can’t. If you can avoid the big numbers and keep yourself in contention, that’s always good.” That’s where Boraas wants to be this week is in contention. Win or lose, playing into the round of 16 in this division is an experience he is excited for. “I’d say it’s more about gaining experience because I’m kind of an underdog in a field like this,” Boraas said. “There’s so many talented players, but it’s always good to play against some of the best in the Midwest area.”

From Page R1

McCarthy def. Pries, 5-4

Miles McCarthy of Excelsior had his game going from the very start on Wednesday as he led from start to finish against Alex Pries of Carver. McCarthy’s birdie win at No. 1 jumpstarted him. He added a par win at 4 and 8 and a birdie win at No. 9 to take all the momentum into the back nine. Pries’ only win of the round came with a par on No. 13. McCarthy was too strong around that hole as his par win at 11 and a birdie win at 14 ended things early.

Jarrett def. Decko, 2-1

Rochester’s Nick Jarrett did just enough during a solid front nine to hold off Jeremy Decko in a 2-1 final. Jarrett used birdies on holes one and three and par wins at Nos. 8 and 9 to take a 3-up advantage into the turn. Decko’s par at 10 pulled his deficit to just two, but a par on 14 for Jarrett was enough to take that hole. Decko got one more win, this time at 16 with a par, but both players parred 17 to end the match a hole early.

Lehman def. Heinen, 3-1

Thomas Lehman has been steady all week through a solid two days of qualifying and now a 3-1 win over Alec Heinen in match play. Lehman’s birdie win at No. 1 set the tone in this match as he went up three by the turn despite an eagle win for Heinen at No. 6. Heinen pulled to within one with a couple of birdie wins at Nos. 10 and 11, but it was a Lehman birdie on the par-three 13th that moved him back to 2-up. Lehman played the par 3s at 2-under, and that proved important when his birdie on the par-3 17th ended the match a hole early.

Freeman def. Black, 1-up

Will Freeman of St. Cloud held off Alexandria native Bryant Black on Wednesday for the right to face Lehman in the next round. This was a match that went back and forth all day. Black struck first with a birdie win on the second hole, but Freeman rattled off three straight from No. 3 through 5 before Black’s birdie at 6 stopped the bleeding. Black did everything he could to steal the win. He birdied Nos. 12, 14 and 17 for wins, but Freeman won by being steady throughout the back nine. He parred Nos. 13, 15 and 16 for wins when Black opened the door a bit with bogeys. Black needed a win on 18 to force extras, but both players parred to give Freeman the 1-up win.

Kucera def. Conder, 2-1

Clay Kucera of Chaska never trailed against Lehi, Utah’s Shay Conder, but Conder did not make it easy on him down the stretch either. Kucera won holes 2, 5 and 6 with a birdie and two pars to take a 3-up lead. Conder got one back with a par win at 7, and he added a birdie and par win at Nos. 11 and 14 around a par win for

Shay Conder of Lehi, UT blasts out of No. 6 bunker in his Men’s Division match against Clay Kucera of Chaska. Kucera also landed in the same bunker. Kucera at 10. Kucera didn’t give anything away down the stretch. His birdie on 16 moved him back to 2-up. That gave him just the breathing room he needed as pars for both players on 17 ended the match.

Naylor def. Fiddle, 5-4

Dylan Naylor of Fargo, N.D. grabbed a 3-up lead after three holes on Hugo’s Mason Fiddle, and he never looked back in a 5-4 win. Naylor birdied hole two around a couple of pars, and he added another birdie win at hole seven to move to 4-up. His par at eight made it a 5-up advantage, and despite wins for Fiddle at 9 and 10, Naylor never really wavered. His birdie at 12 gave him all the momentum again, and his par win at 14 put things to bed.

Sigel def. Krulik, 6-4

Sigel’s impressive week continued when the tournament turned to match play as he cruised past Jordan Krulik by a 6-4 final. Sigel birdied his first hole and shot 3-under on the front to take a 5-up advantage into the turn. Krulik was never able to steal a hole from Sigel all day. The University of Kansas golfer halved Nos. 10 through 13 with Krulik before his par win on No. 14 sealed the deal.

Belisle def. Wills, 3-2

Cecil Belisle was on cruise control early in his match against Dawson Wills, and it made for an early lead that he never relinquished in a 3-2 win over Wills. Belisle won his first four holes, including taking Nos. 2 and 4 with birdies. He added another birdie win on 11. Wills was able to get a couple back

by parring holes seven and 14, but a couple of birdies by both players on 16 gave Belisle everything he needed to get the win.

Montplaisir def. Israelson

Cade Montplaisir of Mesa, Ariz. pulled off an upset as he beat seventhseeded Andrew Israelson as the 26th seed. A scorecard from this match was not submitted.

Boraas def. Mack Farley, 3-2

Alexandria’s Noah Boraas is already a well-known name for golf fans around the area who follow the team from AAHS after helping the Cardinals to back-to-back state tournaments. Now he is trying to prove himself in a match-play format against collegelevel players. Boraas, who will play at South Dakota State University this fall as a freshman, took care of his openinground match by beating Mack Farley in a 3-2 final. Farley’s only lead came early with a birdie win on No. 5 after a par win on 4. Boraas responded by winning three of the next four holes, including the par-5 sixth with a birdie. “The first 13, 14 holes I was really solid off the tee, gave myself a lot of chances coming into greens,” Boraas said. “I had a couple bad tee shots toward the end, but I felt like the tee shots were my strength today.” Boraas said he has liked where his game is at this summer, and how he’s playing heading into the middle of this week. He played his 16 holes at 1-over par on Wednesday and took holes 12, 13 and 16 to wrap up his win. “I’m trying to take it one shot at a time and give myself chances on every hole,” Boraas said of playing against a lot of older golfers in this field. “They’re obviously going to be

Jim Hoselton’s win over Lincoln Johnson came down to the wire as Johnson’s birdie on 17 pulled him to within one. That made for a tense 18th hole, but Hoselton wasn’t going to give anything away as his par tied Johnson’s and wrapped up the 1-up win. It was going to take birdies to beat a player like Johnson, and Hoselton got five of those in the match. Four of them led to him taking the hole on Nos. 1, 11, 12 and 15. That built him a big enough lead to hold off Johnson in the end.

Galvin def. Jerry Rose, 2-1

Josh Galvin of Maple Grove had five birdies on Wednesday against Alexandria’s Jerry Rose, and he needed almost every one of them in a 2-1 win. Galvin got birdie wins on Nos. 1, 5, 11 and 17. That win on 17 wrapped up the match after Rose fought to stay within striking distance all day. Rose’s wins came on holes six and nine with pars and on 15 with another par.

Lindberg def. Wilson, 3-2

Andrew Lindberg matched up in another tight match in this division as he held off Peter Wilson by a 3-2 final. Lindberg closed things out down the stretch, winning holes 14 and 15 with a birdie and a par before both players parred No. 16. Lindberg took his final lead of the day with a birdie win at No. 8. He never gave that back as another birdie win on hole 11 gave him the cushion he needed to secure the win.

Adams def. Jack Cummings, 6-5

Last year’s runner-up, Nate Adams of Maple Grove, left no doubt in his opening-round win as he beat Jack Cummings, 6-5. Things didn’t start out all that well for Adams. Cummings’ birdie on hole 1 gave him an early advantage, but it was short-lived. Adams took the next five holes by riding a wave of five straight pars when Cummings opened the door with bogeys. Adams birdied No. 11 for a win that moved him to 5-up, and his bogey on 13 was enough to put the match away.

Herzogs and medalist still in the hunt Will there be a match between sisters?

starting at 12:36 p.m. from No. 1. Here’s a look back at how they got there:

By Al Edenloff aedenloff@echopress.com Defending champion Stephanie Herzog of Red Wing and medalist Alejandra Arellano of Wichita, KS rolled to quick victories in the opening round of the Women’s Division Wednesday. Herzog’s younger sister, Leah, last year’s runner-up, also advanced, which could set up another sister-vs-sister shootout in the semifinals if Stephanie can get by Amanda Woodhull of Minnetonka and Leah can slip past Amanda Bigger of Alexandria. (At last year’s Resorters, Stephanie won the championship match against Leah, 4-3.) Alayna Eldred of Osakis, a semifinalist last year and the division’s 2014 champion, is also still in the hunt after her down-to-the-wire 18-hole victory yesterday over Ciara O’Connor of Farwell. Madison Herzog of Detroit Lakes also won her match yesterday to remain in contention. And don’t count out the other member of the division’s “elite eight” – Alexis Guggisberg of Glenwood who survived an 18-hole battle with Alexandria’s Lauren Stockmoe yesterday. The Women’s Division contenders will tee it up Thursday

S. Herzog def. Nygaard

Unfortunately, we do not have details of Herzog’s victory over Kyla Nygaard of Maple Grove. A scorecard wasn’t turned in.

Woodhull def. Contreras, 3-2

Woodhull never fell behind in her match against Lauren Contreras of Maple Grove. After both golfers halved the first two holes with par, Woodhull’s par won No. 3 and she added to the lead with another par win on No. 5, followed by a bogey win on No. 6. Woodhull kept the pressure on with a birdie win on the par-3 Minnesota Green and halved the next two holes to hold a two-hole edge at the turn. Woodhull went to 3-up with a par on No. 10 but Contreras answered with a par on No. 11 to draw within two. Both women parred the next two holes and Contreras made a match of it by winning No. 14 with bogey to get within one. Woodhull’s clutch par on No. 15 put her back to 2-up and she closed out the match by taking No. 16 with par.

Bigger def. Jacobson, 4-2

advantage on the front nine and posted a 4-2 victory over Amy Jacobson of Alexandria. Jacobson took the first lead with a par on No. 1 but it was brief. Bigger won the next hole with par and then moved ahead with a par on the next hole. Bigger won four more holes on the front – Nos. 3 (par), 5 (par), 6 (birdie) and 9 (par) while Jacobson won one more hole, a birdie on No. 7. Trailing by three at the turn, Jacobson struck for a bogey win on No. 10 and matched Bigger’s par on No. 11 but Bigger took the next hole with par to go 3-up again. They halved the next three holes before Bigger put the match away with a birdie win on No. 16.

She won three holes on the back nine – Nos. 10, 11 and 13 with pars and cut the lead to four. Herzog matched her par on No. 14 and a par on No. 15 ended the match.

M. Herzog def. Cummings, 4-2

Arellano def. Thoreson, 8-7

Arelanno played nearflawless golf against Taylor Thoreson of Hastings. She was 1-under-par through 11 holes and won the first eight holes before Thoreson ended the streak with a birdie on No. 9. Arellano’s par took No. 10 and she put a quick end to things by matching Thoreson’s par on No. 11.

Guggisberg def. L. Stockmoe, 1-up

The Guggisberg-Stockmoe match was a nail-biter the whole way. Stockmoe won three holes on the front – Nos. 3 and 4 with pars and No. 8 with a birdie. Guggisberg also won three holes – No. 1 with

par, No. 7 with bogey and No. 9 with par, which evened the match at the turn. The momentum shifted slightly to Guggisberg on the back nine when she won No. 10 to regain the lead. After halving

Madison Herzog didn’t take her first lead against Caitlin Cummings of Minneapolis until the 8th hole but she was able to walk away with a 4-2 win. Cummings jumped out to a 2-up lead with a par win on No. 1 and an eagle on No. 3. Herzog evened the match with par wins on Nos. 4 and 5, but Cummings regained the lead with a birdie on the par-5 6th. Herzog tied it again with a par on No. 7 and finally took the lead with a par on No. 8. Pars on No. 9 kept her lead at one. Herzog won the 10th hole with par and halved Cummings on the next two holes before going to 3-up with a par on No. 13. Herzog also won the next hole with par but Cummings prolonged the match with a birdie on No. 15 to draw within three with three holes left to play.

Herzog wasn’t going to let the match slip away, however. She won No. 16 to seal a 4-2 win.

Eldred def. O’Connor, 1-up

Eldred rallied back from a two-hole deficit at the turn and didn’t lose a hole on the back nine to preserve a 1-up win. O’Connor took the first two holes with par but Eldred quickly recovered in dramatic fashion – with an eagle on No. 3. After halving the next two holes, O’Connor regained her two-hole lead with a par on No. 6 and went 3-up with a birdie on No. 8. Eldred answered with a par win on No. 9. O’Connor wasn’t able to win a hole after that. Eldred, meanwhile, won No. 11 with par to get within one and tied the match on the next hole with a par. From there, the match settled into a staring contest, with neither golfer blinking. They halved the next five holes before Eldred broke through with a birdie win on No. 18.

A good day for champions

Haugen, Mattson, Herzog move ahead

By Al Edenloff aedenloff@echopress.com The golf gods were kind to champions in the Senior Men’s Division Wednesday. Three former trophy winners kept their repeat dreams alive – defending champion Chris Haugen, who is in search of his third straight title, the 2016 champion Greg Mattson, and the 2012 and 2013 titlist Steve Herzog. Mark Lindberg of Coppell, TX, the champion of the Men’s Division in 2002 and 2003, also survived yesterday. The only former champion who was toppled in the Senior Men’s Division was Pete Passolt, the 1989 Men’s Division champ. Alexandria’s Larry Novotny edged Passolt after 16 holes. Down-to-the-wire matches dominated Wednesday’s second-round play. Five of the eight matches went at least 16 holes. The pressure tightens another notch for today’s quarterfinal matches, which start at 12:18 p.m. from the No. 1 tee. Here’s a recap of Wednesday’s action:

Haugen def. Erickson, 3-1

Craig Erickson gave fellow Alexandrian Haugen almost all he could handle, rallying back from a three-hole deficit to tie the match before the defending champ rose to the top. On the front nine, Haugen built a 3-up lead by taking Nos. 2, 4, 5, 7 and 9 with four pars and a bogey. Erickson, meanwhile, won two holes – No. 3 with birdie and No. 8 with par. Erickson found momentum on the back nine, however, winning No. 10 and 11 with pars and carding an eagle on the par-5 12th to deadlock the match. After halving No. 13 with bogeys, Haugen took back the lead with a par win on No. 14, went to 2-up with another par on No. 15 and made birdie on No. 17 to seal a 3-1 win.

Davis def. Hagen, 1-up

Al Hagen of Harrisburg, S.D. busts out of the sand on the sixth hole at AGC on Wednesday during Senior Division play. Hagen lost a tight 1-up match to Matt Davis of Woodbury as Davis advanced to the quarterfinals. SD, who staged a comeback to creep back to within one with just one hole left. Davis grabbed an early lead by winning Nos. 2 and 3 with par but Hagen countered with a bogey win on No. 4 to keep it close. Davis went 2-up with a birdie on No. 6 and added a par win on No. 7 to go 3-up, a lead he held at the turn. Hagen’s par was good enough to take the 10th hole but Davis took No. 12 with birdie to go back to 3-up. After swapping pars on the next hole, Hagen drew to within two again with a birdie on No. 14. Both golfers matched pars on the next two holes before Hagen won No. 17 with par to send the match to the 18th. Davis, who never trailed, was able to match Hagen’s par for a hard-fought 1-up victory.

Lindberg def. Morgan, 2-1

Lindberg had to dig out of a hole to defeat Kevin Morgan of Hood River, OR. He trailed by two after 11 holes but fought

back to live another day. The match bounced around on the front nine. Lindberg won Nos. 1 and 3 with pars, but Morgan took Nos. 2, 5 and 7 with pars and was 1-up at the turn. Morgan put the pressure on when he won No. 10 with yet another par and matched Lindberg’s par on the next hole to preserve his two-hole lead. After that, Lindberg kicked his game up a notch, stringing together three straight birdies to steal the lead. Lindberg continued his win streak with a par to take No. 15 and he matched Morgan’s pars on 16 and 17 to nail down the victory.

Howard def. Vanyo, 3-2

Curt Howard of Bristow, OK shot even-par against Rick Vanyo of Circle Pines. Howard surged to an early lead by winning Nos. 1 (birdie) and 3 (bogey) but Vanyo battled back with a birdie on No. 4. Howard won No. 6 with birdie but Vanyo notched another birdie on No. 7 to draw within

Lindberg won a close match between those two by a 2-1 final. one and the score remained that way at the turn. Howard’s par took No. 10 but Vanyo’s birdie on No. 12, his third of the day, pulled him to within one. After that, it was all Howard. He matched Vanyo’s par on No. 13, won Nos. 14 and 15 with birdie, par and tied Vanyo’s par on No. 16 for a 3-2 win.

S. Herzog def. Heimsness, 1-up

Will Herzog win his third Senior Men’s trophy? He took a big step in that direction yesterday by fending off a ferocious comeback from Eric Heimsness of Woodbury. Herzog was cruising along in the early going, winning Nos. 1, 4, 5, 7 and 8 with solid pars to go 5-up. Heimsness finally put the brakes on Herzog by winning the 9th hole with par but trailed by four at the turn.

Welcome to Alexandria

After both golfers bogeyed No. 10, the match ping-ponged with Heimsness taking No. 11 (par), Herzog winning No. 12 (birdie) and Heimsness taking No. 13 with birdie. Trailing by three with five holes left, Heimsness staged his comeback, winning Nos. 15, 16 and 17 with two pars and a birdie to tie the match. Herzog regained his focus, however, by making par on the 18th hole while Heimsness had to settle for bogey, allowing Herzog to escape with a 1-up win.

Gardiner def. Eidsvold, 5-3

John Gardiner of Deephaven overcame a slow start – he bogeyed the first two holes – and rolled to a 5-3 win over Alexandria’s Brian Eidsvold.

Novotny def. Passolt, 3-2

Novotny never trailed in his match against Passolt but he did have to squelch more than a few charges from the 1989 Men’s Division champion. Novotny moved out from with par wins on Nos. 2 and 3. Passolt rallied with wins on the next two holes to draw even only to lose the next hole to Novotny’s par. Novotny added a birdie win on No. 8 and a par win on No. 9 to go 3-up at the turn. Passolt won No. 10 with bogey but Novotny answered with a par win on the next hole. Passolt stormed back again,

JUNIOR 10-12

Semifinals set with top four seeds By Eric Morken emorken@echopress.com Like in the Junior 13-15 Division, the top four seeds in the Junior 10-12 field are all alive heading into Friday’s semifinals at 9 a.m. from the 10th tee. Top-seeded Charlie Hanson of Morris will take on fourthseeded Ashton Sladek of Alexandria on Friday. Second-seeded Carson Boe of Cottonwood will battle third-seeded Carver Larson of Alexandria, as well. Here’s a look at how all four got to this point.

Hanson def. Grimsrud, 5-4

Hanson could not have ended his match with John Grimsrud any earlier in the nine-hole event as he won all five holes for the 5-4 win. Hanson wasn’t going to leave Grimsrud any chance as he shot 1-under in his shortened round. He had par wins on Nos. 10, 11, 12 and 14 around a birdie win at the par-three 13th hole.

Sladek def. Guggisberg, 3-1

Sladek had to battle a little bit against Glenwood’s Zachary Guggisberg, but he finished his match well on his way to a 3-1 victory. Sladek won holes 10, 12 and 13 with pars before adding a birdie win at No. 14 to go 3-up

around a win at 11 from Guggisberg. Guggisberg added his second win of the day at No. 16 with a par, but he opened the door a bit with a double bogey on the 17th. Sladek pounced on that opportunity as his bogey completed the win a hole early.

Boe def. Moen, 3-1

Boe won his match 3-1 against Henry Moen of Edina, and he did it by finishing down the stretch. Boe’s birdie at No. 11 gave him an early lead, but it was all square heading to the 14th. Moen opened the door from there. He shot 7-over par over his last four holes, and Boe took advantage of that with wins on Nos. 14, 16 and 17 to

Larson def. Scholl, 4-3

Larson never trailed in his match with Blake Scholl of Alexandria as he methodically pulled away throughout the

round. Larson used par wins at Nos. 11, 12 and 13 to take a 3-up advantage. That par run was halted with a bogey tie on 14, but Larson put the finishing

touches on his win in style by carding a birdie on 15 to put Scholl away. FRIDAY PAIRINGS - 10TH TEE 9 a.m. - Charlie Hanson vs. Ashton Sladek; Carson Boe vs. Carver Larson

R14 Resorters 2019 | Thursday, August 1, 2019 WOMEN’S EXECS

Battle of top seeds set up in semis By Eric Morken emorken@echopress.com The Women’s Executive Division is down to the final four, and the field followed the script as all four of the top seeds remain. Defending champion Jodi Sullivan was on her game from the get-go on Wednesday as she cruised into the semifinals. Second-seeded Betsy Aldrich was pushed by Molly Baker but won late, and Nancy Syverson and Pam Marlow are next in line in trying to knock off the last two champs in Sullivan and Aldrich. Here is a look at how all four players got to this point.

Sullivan def. Caver, 7-5

Alexandria’s Jen Cavers led after a win on No. 2 against Sullivan in the quarterfinals, but a stretch of five holes covering both nines allowed Sullivan to run away with the 7-5 win. Sullivan grabbed her first lead on No. 4 and went 2-up with a birdie on No. 6. That

lead stretched to three with a par win on nine. She carried that momentum right into the turn. Sullivan’s win on hole nine was the first of five straight holes she would take. She played at 1-under through the shortened back by parring Nos. 10, 12 and 13 with a birdie win at 11.

Syverson def. Beckendorf, 2-1

Alexandria’s Nancy Syverson was in a back-and-forth battle all afternoon with Andover’s Heidi Beckendorf before a couple wins on Nos. 14 and 15 helped secure a 2-1 win. Beckendorf pulled things all square with a par win at 13 after she trailed by one at the turn. The momentum didn’t last, though, as a couple of bogeys opened the door for Syverson on 14 and 15 as she capitalized with par wins. Both players bogeyed No. 16 before pars on 17 secured the win for Syverson.

Aldrich def. Baker, 4-3

Aldrich said her qualifying

Sullivan

in the driver’s seat. Baker got her lone birdie of the day at 13 to cut her deficit back to three. There was no comeback left in her, though, as Aldrich put the match away with a par on No. 15 to finish her round at 1-over par. By this point in her career, Aldrich knows the Alexandria Golf Club like the back of her hand. She’s been coming here for years and has a complete comfort with the course and how she needs to attack it. “You really feel like you know all the greens, and you know where to be careful,” she said. “You know where you have to be below the hole, so my comfort level here is 100 percent. It’s super fun, and it never gets boring because the course is always in such great shape and it’s such a fun course.” The familiarity with AGC has served the multi-time champion well over the years, but she continues to go into each match by not taking anything for granted. “You can’t overlook anybody,” Aldrich said. “Look at

round early this week when she shot a 71 with five birdies felt almost effortless. Her driver was working well that day and it set her up with plenty of quality looks at the green. She played well again on Wednesday in the match-play quarterfinals, but Molly Baker of Arizona pushed her before Aldrich pulled away a bit at the end for a 4-3 win. “All four of the women in my group played really well,” Aldrich said. “All our matches went to at least 15 or 16. Molly Baker played great. We had a really fun group.” Aldrich’s summer on the golf course has included playing in the U.S. Senior Women’s Open at the Pine Needles Lodge and Golf Club in North Carolina in May. She carried the momentum of her solid play right into Resorters week. Aldrich and Baker were all square after a par win on No. 6 by Baker, but Aldrich responded from there. She parred Nos. 7 and 9 to go 2-up at the turn and birdie wins at Nos. 10 and 12 put her

Molly Baker. She took me to the 15th hole today and I was only 1-over. You can’t ever let up here. It’s fun. There’s so many nice people and it’s nice to have the execs and not be playing with the young kids who hit it 40 yards by you. I would never look beyond anybody at all.”

Marlow def. Johnson, 3-2

Pam Marlow will be the next in line to try to knock Aldrich off after she used a solid start to her round on Wednesday to beat Tiffany Johnson of Maple Grove. Marlow had back-to-back birdies on holes two and three and then got a bogey win to go 3-up after five. The lone hole Johnson took came on No. 8 with a birdie, but Marlow’s third birdie of the round at 10 moved her to 3-up. Neither player could create any separation from there as they halved the next six holes to end things after 16.

OH,

DEER!

The Alexandria Golf Course has plenty of trees for golfers to get into trouble with and enough timber for a little bit of wildlife to hang out in too. This fawn came running in front of the No. 7 tee box on Wednesday morning and across the No. 6 green before trotting off with his mother. No whitetails have been harmed so far in the playing of this year’s tournament.

Happy to be here

McFarlane and Woolcott bask in member-guest tournament win at AGC

McFarlane said. “I play with a lot of these guys – Thursday night league and whatnot. There are some real good sticks out there. I thought if we could be competitive and make it to the end, that’d be great. Then we managed to slip in the finals. I looked at Steve and said, ‘I guess we’ll see what happens.’” The trip to AGC was much further for Woolcott than McFarlane. The North Carolina resident came north to escape the heat, and heads back with a fun memory. “The heat index was 112 degrees last week in North Carolina,” Woolcott said. “The weather was beautiful this weekend. I had a marvelous time here.” McFarlane and Woolcott met over 40 years ago in the military. Now that they’re both retired, they dedicate time out of the year to get a few rounds of golf in. “We met in the service back in 1978,” McFarlane said. “We still get out and see each other. We do things like this. Winning it makes it more memorable, that’s for sure.” For McFarlane, the reason he keeps coming back is the hospitality that AGC provides. “Every time I’m here I’m blown away at how nice the people are,” he said. “They did stuff for the families all weekend like putting challenges and whatnot. It makes it fun for everybody to come out here.”

By Jared Rubado jrubado@echopress.com Alexandria Golf Club member Jim McFarlane wasn’t expecting to win the Lakes to Links Member-Guest Golf Tournament this past weekend at AGC, so he and his partner, Steve Woolcott, surprised even themselves on July 13. “I took a few holes off this morning and Steve carried me,” McFarlane said. “Then he took a few off and I carried him. Honest to goodness, we were just stroking it. We were just trying to hit it hard.” McFarlane and Woolcott outlasted Jim and Bill Kuhn as the final two teams left standing in the shootout round of the tournament. There were 11 flights during the two-day event. Each flight was made up of six two-person teams. The top team in each flight advanced to the alternateshot shootout on the last day of the event. Two additional teams are also added to the shootout. The wildcard spot is handed to the team with the most points that didn’t win its flight. The day-two highpoint getters also advanced. McFarlane has been a member at AGC for five years. He knows the kind of golfers that play in Alexandria regularly. Winning the tournament was never on his radar. “This is a freaking surprise,”

R18 Resorters 2019 | Thursday, August 1, 2019 JUNIOR 13-15

Top four seeds roll into semifinals By Eric Morken emorken@echopress.com The Junior 13-15 Division played out exactly the way the seeds said it would as the topfour ranked players are all left standing after Wednesday’s quarterfinals. Alexandria’s Hannah Boraas and Edina’s Charlie Moen will match up in the semifinals on Friday when this division takes to the first box for a noon tee time. Thomas Gogel of Mission Hills, Kansas and Leo Werschay of St. Augusta will join them there. Here’s a look at how all four won their quarterfinal matches.

Boraas

Boraas def. Bennett Olsen, 3-2

In a battle of two Alexandria golfers, Boraas had a little more than Bennett Olsen in a 3-2 final. The Junior 13-15 Division started on the back Wednesday morning, and these two were back and forth through their first nine. Boraas led by one heading to the front, but Olsen’s birdie win at No. 1 made it all square. That’s exactly where things stood after a birdie for Boraas at three and a bogey win for Olsen at four. After Boraas’ worst hole of the day saw her card an eight, she put it behind her to go par, birdie, par, winning all three holes to suddenly put the match away.

Moen

Gogel

Moen def. Stennes, 4-3

Moen fell behind by one hole after the 11th against Minnetonka’s Zach Stennes, but he quickly erased that with four wins over the next six holes to take command in an eventual 4-3 win. Moen was steady throughout the back in building up that lead. He parred Nos. 12, 13 and 15 and added a birdie win on 17.

Nothing changed at the start of the front. His par wins on Nos. 1 and 2 moved him to 5-up and then a bogey win on 5 helped seal the deal a hole later after both players parred No. 6.

Gogel def. Peterson, 6-5

Gogel shot a 36 on the back nine on Wednesday, and that helped him take a 4-up lead into the turn in a 6-5 win over Taeren Peterson of Alexandria. Gogel birdied Nos. 11 and 18 and then parred Nos. 1 and 3 to take command. That’s all it took as Gogel ended the match after No. 4 when both players parred.

Christen Lillehaugen watches his drive hit the fairway on hole 11 during his Junior 13-15 Championship matchup against Leo Werschay on Wednesday morning.

Werschay def. Lillehaugen, 6-5

Christian Lillehaugen of Apple Valley stuck with Werschay through seven holes on Wednesday. The match was separated by just one at that point, but Werschay pulled away after that on his way to the 6-5 win. It started on hole 17 with a par win before a birdie win on 18 moved Werschay to 3-up heading to the front. Lillehaugen opened the door on the next four holes, and Werschay was happy to walk through it with wins on Nos. 1, 2 and 4 that ended things early.

The field of 32 in the Men’s Executive Championship division was cut in half on Wednesday afternoon at the Alexandria Golf Club. The top four seeds in the field advanced with dominating performances. While most of the higher seeds advanced, there were some upsets throughout the day. Players teed off starting at 1:10 p.m. on the 10th hole. Only one match went all 18 holes. The round of 16 will start at 12:55 p.m. on Thursday on the front nine.

T. Johnson def, Darryl Wills, 8-7

Troy Johnson proved why he’s the top seed and the defending champion with his round on Wednesday. Through the 11 holes that he played, he shot a 42 and was up eight over his opponent Darryl Wills. Four birdies were too much for Wills to handle as he was unable to win a hole.

Chris Kowalczyk trailed in 10 holes on Wednesday including a majority of the back nine. However, he won the last three holes of the round over his opponent, Erik Nelson, to advance. Kowalczyk, the 17-seed in the tournament, had three straight birdies to come away with a two-hole win. Nelson 16-seed, shot par on the last three holes to finish off a good round of 76 through 17. The road doesn’t get easier for Kowalczyk. The Alexandria resident is set to take on the defending champion Thursday afternoon.

Wanous def. C. Johnson, 2-1

Mark Wanous survived an upset scare with a 2-1 win over 25th-seed Chad Johnson. Wanous earned the eight-seed in the qualifiers but nearly fell in the opening round of match play. It took nine holes for Wanous to get his first lead only for him to see it wiped away with a bogey on the second hole. Johnson’s bogey on the third hole put Wanous up one – a lead he never let go of on his way to a win. Johnson’s qualifier score of 83 earned him the 25th-seed in bracket play. Through 17 holes on Wednesday, Johnson shot a 72.

Grossman def. Vander Plaats, 2-1

Aaron Vander Plaats had the start he wanted over the ninth-seeded Brent Grossman. Through eight holes he was 1-up and was watching Grossman struggle to make par. As the match hit the turn, Grossman found his swing and shot par or under on seven of the last eight holes. Grossman is set to play against Wanous on Thursday. Wanous shot a 73 in his 7-hole round on Wednesday. Grossman shot a 69 through 16 holes and did not finish hole 3.

Schomer def. Rossow, 6-5

After winning four of the first five holes, fourth-seeded Daryl Schomer took a commanding lead early over Kevin Rossow, the 29th-seed. By the time the first nine holes were completed, Schomer opened up a fivehole advantage. He was able to birdie holes one and two on his way to a 6-5 win. Schomer’s qualifier total of 73

earned one of the top spots in the field. Rossow was one of the final people to make the cut for the Championship division with his qualifying score of 83. He finished two strokes ahead of the first man out but saw his title hopes run short on Wednesday in 13 holes.

D. Klein def. McLeod, 2-1

Daniel Klein won a back-and-forth matchup on Wednesday over the 13thseeded Brant McLeod. Klein, the 20th-seed, fell down one with a bogey on the 10th hole. He was able to even the score with McLeod’s bogey on 13 and later take the lead with a birdie on 15. McLeod took advantage of Klein’s bogey on 16 to send the match over to the front nine all squared. Klein’s pars on the first three holes on the front put him 2-up. However, a double bogey on the fifth hole put his lead to one. After both players shot par on No. 6, Klein’s par putt on the seventh green gave him a two-hole lead. McLeod was not able to get ahead on the eighth hole as the 13-seed fell in the first round. Klein will face off against Schomer on Thursday.

Vetsch def. Bisson, 3-1

The highest seed to come off the board was taken down by the 28thseeded Jerry Vetsch. Chad Bisson shot a 74 in the qualifying rounds, which was the fifth-best score in the field. On Wednesday, his luck ran out as he was a victim of the biggest upset in the Men’s Executive Championship Division. Vetsch took an early one-hole lead

MEN’S EXECS: Page 22


R22 Resorters 2019 | Thursday, August 1, 2019

MEN’S EXECS From Page 21

after a par on 10. After Bisson evened the score on 13, he went 1-up on 14 with a birdie. Bisson had two forgettable holes on 15 and 16 to give the onehole lead back to Vetsch. Although, he was able to save par on 17 to even the score heading to the front nine. After both players shot par on No. 1, back-to-back double bogeys put Vetsch up two. He later went up three on the fifth hole after Bisson bogeyed again. Bisson cut Vetsch’s lead to two with a par on hole six. It was too late for Bisson to mount a comeback as Vetsch sealed the win with a par on the eighth hole.

Raymond def. Hagelstrom, 2-1

Vetsch will go head-to-head with another upset victor in Matt Raymond on Thursday. Raymond, the 21st-seed, beat 12th-seeded Josh Hagelstrom 2-1 to advance to the next round. Raymond took a lead on the 11th hole with a par and never looked back. Raymond went up two with a par on 15, but the lead went back to one with Hagelstrom’s birdie on 16. Raymond went up three other times throughout the match, including on the match-clinching hole. A par on eight advanced Raymond to the next round.

G. Klein def. T. Petersen, 5-3

Second-seeded Geoff Klein took care of business in his first-round matchup over 31-seed Tony Petersen. After an even start on the first two holes, Klein would win five straight to open up a big lead on the back nine. Petersen cut his lead to four with a par on hole five, but Klein’s birdie on

six was enough to advance him to the next round.

Paulsen def. Heimerman, 1-up

Nick Paulsen beat Tom Heimerman in the most tightly contested match of the first round. Paulsen, the 15-seed, beat 18th-seeded Heimerman 1-up in the only matchup that went 18 holes. Heimerman went up one after Paulsen bogied the 10th hole. Backto-back birdies put Paulsen up one. After Heimerman shot par on 16, he closed out the back nine with back-toback birdies of his own to go up two heading to the front nine. Heimerman went up three after Paulsen’s bogey on No. 1. His lead vanished after three straight bogeys and a double bogey. Heimerman saved par on No. 6 to square the score again. Both players shot par on hole seven and bogeyed hole eight. With one hole remaining, the score was tied. Paulsen was able to win after Heimerman’s double bogey on the last hole. He advances to play the twoseed, Geoff Klein, on Thursday.

A. Petersen def. Cliff, 5-4

Andy Petersen was impressive in his 5-4 win over Brian Cliff. With his family following alongside him, Petersen lost only one hole on his way to a convincing victory. Cliff came into Wednesday’s matchup as the 26th seed in the field although he played well enough to beat many of the people in front of him. Just not Andy Petersen. Petersen shot a 34 on the back nine and was on his way to shooting under par on the front. Cliff was four strokes behind him at 38, but unfortunately, he was also four holes behind Petersen on the turn.

D. Johnson def. Kieffer, 3-2

Dan Johnson moved on to the second round with a 3-2 win over Isaac Kieffer. Johnson, the 10-seed, was up three heading to the front nine after winning holes 11, 13 and 17. Kieffer’s bogey on hole two put Johnson up four. Kieffer, the 23rd-seed, won holes four and six to cut Johnson’s lead to two, but it wasn’t enough to make a comeback. Johnson is set to face Andy Petersen on Thursday in the second round.

JT Johnson def. Tony Kucera, 9-8

JT Johnson is one of the top contenders in the field. He proved that with a 9-8 win over 30th-seed Tony Kucera. The only hole that Johnson didn’t win was 16 when Kucera matched his par. An eagle on 12 put him up three. Johnson shot a 33 on the back nine on his way to a first-round win. In the qualifying round, Johnson shot an even 72 to earn the third seed in the championship bracket.

Nemec def. Williams, 2-1

John Nemec was given a scare after leading throughout the first nine holes. Mike Williams, the 14-seed, did all he could to make a comeback on 19-seed Nemec, but ran out of holes to play. Nemec went up two after starting the back nine with a par and a birdie. Williams squared the match after Nemec doubled 15. He was able to take his first lead of the match after Nemec bogeyed 16 and 17. After the turn to the front nine, Nemec squared the match with a birdie on hole one and a par on hole three. Nemec regained his lead after Wil-

liams bogeyed the fifth hole. The lead wouldn’t last as Nemec bogeyed six to square the match again. Nemec was able to come away with the win after shooting par on holes six and seven. Williams bogeyed both and was eliminated from the championship bracket.

Jeff Johnson def. Sinning, 5-4

Jeff Johnson cruised to a first-round victory after beating Jason Sinning, 5-4. Johnson earned the six seed after shooting a 75 in the qualifying rounds. He earned a favorable matchup against Sinning, the 27th-seed, in the first round. Johnson won the first three holes on the back nine to take an early lead. Despite two late bogeys, Johnson was up three heading over to the front nine. Sinning’s double bogeys on hole one and four were the difference makers as Johnson was able to par the fifth hole for the win.

Marlow def. Flannery, 5-4

Chad Marlow pulled off the final upset of the day in the Men’s Championship Executive field on Wednesday. Marlow, the 22nd-seed, took down 11th-seeed Taylor Flannery 5-4 and advanced to the second round. Flannery went up one after the 10th hole, but saw Marlow tie the score with a birdie on 11. The match was at a stalemate until Marlow took his first lead of the contest with a par on 17. Marlow went 2-up heading to the front nine after Marlow bogeyed on 18. Four straight pars for Marlow was the deciding factor in the final match of the afternoon. Three bogeys for Flannery put himself in a hole that he couldn’t dig out of. Marlow will face Jeff Johnson on Thursday.

R24 Resorters 2019 | Thursday, August 1, 2019 MASTERS

Battles up and down the lineup Elton in 2017 by a 1-up final. He positioned himself well this week through qualifying and says his game is in a good place as he looks ahead to Thursday. “I’m hitting my drives straight. Somebody told me I should probably putt with my driver,” he said with a laugh. “You got to get it into the fairway and then hit it into the green.” Blanchard will match up against Clear Lake’s Allen Strassburg in the quarterfinals. “I have not played Al that I can remember, but I’ve played with him,” Blanchard said. “He’s a good man. That’s what’s fun about this tournament. They’re all good people out here.”

Top two seeds survive scare By Eric Morken emorken@echopress.com The men’s Masters Division saw plenty of drama on Wednesday morning as matches were tight throughout almost the entire field. Defending champion Randy Johnson had to sweat out a 19-hole thriller against sixtime Resorters champion George Cliff before getting the job done. Second-seed Norty Blanchard had his work cut out for him too as he survived in 18 holes against another Resorters veteran in Jim Arnold. “I think it’s more fun for the fans,” Blanchard said with a smile of playing in those action-packed matches. “I don’t enjoy that at all. The pressure, man. But I think the fans have a lot of fun because we were back and forth and back and forth. We were close the whole way around. That’s the way golf should be played.” The final eight players remaining in the Masters championship flight will get their quarterfinal rounds going at noon from the first tee on Thursday. Here’s a look at how all eight got past Wednesday’s action.

Johnson def. Cliff, 19-holes

Johnson knew he drew a tough opening matchup after qualifying rounds were completed early this week, so there was no looking past Cliff. This match was never separated by more than one hole. It was all square after the turn as both players shot 40 on the front. Johnson struck first on the back with a par win at No. 11 before Cliff answered with a birdie and par win on 12 and 13. That 1-up advantage didn’t last long. Johnson returned the favor with back-to-back wins of his own on Nos. 14 and 15 with a couple of pars. Again Cliff answered, this time with wins on 16 and 17 to go 1-up. That put the pressure on the defending champ. Johnson needed to take 18, and that’s what he did with a par win. That set the stage for the 19th as Johnson won it in one extra hole.

Alexandria’s Dave Battey hits his way out of the sand from just off the No. 6 green on Wednesday. Battey won his match in the Masters Division 6-5 to advance to the quarterfinals.

Tessmer def. Petersen, 2-up

Steve Tessmer of Hood River, Ore. won his match against eighth-seeded Larry Petersen on the first five holes on Wednesday. Tessmer shot even through those first handful of holes, including a birdie win on No. 2. At the end of that stretch, he was 5-up. Petersen put together a bit of a rally. He took holes 8, 11, 12 and 14, but a par win on No. 10 for Tessmer was enough to end things after 17 when the two players halved their final three holes.

Battey def. Way, 6-5

Alexandria’s Dave Battey never gave an inch on Wednesday, and it left Edina’s Ron Way little chance for advancing. Battey won 6-5 and did so by shooting an even-par 36 on the front. Included in that was a birdie win at No. 9 that sent him into the turn 4-up. Battey wasted no time setting the tone for the back. He birdied No. 10 and added another par win at 11 to go 6-up. The match lasted just two more holes as both players halved 12 and 13.

Elton def. Sauer, 2-1

Moorhead’s Dan Elton may have qualified as the 12th seed earlier this week, but no one in the Masters Division would consider it an upset if he makes a deep run into this tournament. Elton is a two-time champ

Strassburg def. Rolfzen, 1-up

Strassburg got to his match with Blanchard by winning his own 1-up match on Wednesday. He went up against Gary Rolfzen from Florida and grabbed an early lead with a par and birdie win at Nos. 3 and 4. It was a 1-up advantage at the turn for Strassburg, but Rolfzen wouldn’t go away. His par win at 14 pulled the match all square, but a par win at 17 for Strassburg proved to be the difference. Both players parred 18 as Strassburg held on for the narrow win.

Ryan def. Vipond, 5-4 Robert Chesley of Mankato takes a knee to read the No. 6 green before a putt on Wednesday. Chesley won his match in the Masters Division by a 5-4 final. from 2016 and 2017, and he used a stretch at the start of the back nine to pull away a bit from St. Cloud’s Ray Sauer. Elton’s two pars and a birdie on 12 put him at 3-up after the two made the turn all square. It was a two-hole advantage for Elton after 13 when he opened the door a bit for Sauer with bogeys on 15 and 16. Saurer could not take advantage as he too bogeyed both holes before the match ended with pars for both players on 17.

Blanchard def. Arnold, 1-up

Like Elton, Jim Arnold of Plymouth might have qualified with a higher score than many were expecting in the field. That meant the second-

Blanchard

seeded Blanchard was going to get a tough opening match against the 15th-seeded Arnold. “When you’re playing Jim Arnold you just have to grind it because you know he’s going to come after you,” Blanchard said. “He makes a lot of putts. He’s a good player, and he’s a good man.” It came down to the 18th hole. Arnold found himself down two holes after 11, but birdie wins on 12 and 16 made things all square. That put the pressure on Blanchard, but he was up for the challenge as back-to-back pars was enough to steal the win after Arnold’s bogey on 18. Blanchard has made deep runs in this field before, including finishing second to

THURSDAY PAIRINGS - 1ST TEE Noon - Randy Johnson vs. Steve Tessmer; Dave Battey vs. Dan Elton 12:09 - Norty Blanchard vs. Allen Strassburg; Tom Ryan vs. Robert Chesley

Ryan

Tom Vipond took a 1-up lead after a birdie win on the first hole on Wednesday, but it was a lead that proved to be short-lived. Tom Ryan made sure of that. The Minnetonka golfer erased that early deficit with par wins on holes three, four and five. Ryan was 3-up at the turn with a birdie win at No. 9, and he added a par win on the 10th to take complete control of the match. Both players halved the next three before Ryan’s birdie win on No. 14 sealed the deal.

Chesley def. Lee, 5-4

Robert Chesley of Mankato put his match with David Lee away on the back nine. Chesley led by just one hole after the turn, but he won four of the next five holes to start the back. Chesley did it by just being steady — he parred Nos. 10, 12, 13 and 14 as Lee opened the door for him to take the win four holes early.

Hoselton wins putting contest By Celeste Edenloff cedenloff@echopress.com Jim Hoselton’s only strategy for competing in the putting contest at the annual Resorters Golf Tournament he said, was to “make every putt I look at.” Good strategy, and it worked pretty flawlessly. It was a big day for Hoselton, who hails from Phoenix, Arizona, as he not only won the putting challenge, but he did so after knocking off thirdseeded Lincoln Johnson in the opening round of match play in the Men’s Championship Division. Hoselton said this was his first time competing in the putting contest and only his second time at the Resorters Golf Tournament. He was one of 32 golfers competing in the challenge Wednesday evening. Although he said the greens were quick, Hoselton knocked out his opponent, Nick Brundell, by the eighth hole to win the contest. The final four players were Hoselton, Brundell, Andrew Johnson and Thomas Lehman. Brundell won over Johnson and Hoselton won over Lehman in the semifinals.
