Outstanding Golf Played at Forest Hills Open

No train delays, but there was plenty of outstanding golf played at the TRGA Forest Hills Open  on Sunday.  For this summer only, Forest Hills is playing to a par 68.  Two players bettered par in the men's Championship division.  Jake Dunn and Scott Erickson tied with one-under-par 67's.  Dunn, last year's Player-of-the-Year, won on the first sudden death hole.  University of Wisconsin golfer Ben Skogen was third with 72.

In First Flight, Joe Loomis continues his comeback.  Loomis' 71 was four strokes better than Rick Stewart's 75

In Second Flight Erik Burton followed last week's runner-up finish at Cedar Vally with a win.  Burton shot 76.  Tony Friedl, Chuck Moore and Tom Grapes tied for second place at 82.

In the Third Flight, Bruce Nordstrom made a dramatic birdie on the 18th hole to force a sudden death playoff with Bob Sciborski.   Both players finished with 80. But Sciborski, who won the Charlie Kearns Memorial first flight on Saturday, won in a playoff.   What a weekend for Sciborski!

Marv Davis made about 900 feet of putts in Fourth Flight on his way to a huge win.  Davis finished with 76.  Scott Hackworth was second with 85.

And in Fifth Flight, Keith Seidel fired a solid 85. Michael DeYoe was second with 89.

Chelsea Dunnum continued to dominate Women's Championship play.  Dunnum's 80 was eight shots better than Krista Anderson, who rebounded nicely from last week's round at Cedar Valley.

Cathi Baus claimed a one shot victory in the Women's Flighted division.  Terry Ziegelbauer finished in second place.

Drugan's Castle Mound is the next stop for the TRGA.
