The twice postponed TRGA Valley High Open was played Saturday in near-perfect weather in Houston, MN. No snow this time as the golf heated-up as well. Matt Peterson holed-out from 50 yards on the opening hole for birdie. And things got better from there. Peterson won the championship flight with a one-over-par 72. He finished three shots better than Trey Hewuse who had a 75.
In first flight Bruce Lindseth took care of business on the first hole of sudden death. His par save on the par four 10th hole eliminated Rick Stewart and Randy Olson. The three players all shot 79 in regulation.
Tony Friedl continued his outstanding play this summer. Friedl's 77 was six shots clear of runner-up Joe Hunter in the the 2nd flight.
It was fitting that WXOW Chief Meteorologist Dan Breeden had a great day. He accepted congratulations for the outstanding weather and for his win in the 3rd flight. Breeden finished with an 89. Leon McNutt finished second with a 92 on his home course.
After weeks of threating to retire, Roger Cram re-discovered his game. Cram cruised to a three stroke win in the Gold flight, finishing with an 84. Steve Crogan was next at 87.
The TRGA season continues Sunday, July 7th at Fox Hollow.
