Well done, Jake Dunn - newest Men's County Am golf champ

HOLMEN, WI - The affable Jake Dunn, with the email prefix "welldunn," won the 30th annual La Crosse County Men's Amateur Golf Championship as presented by Pepsi-Cola of La Crosse Sunday at Drugan's Castle Mound Country Club.
Dunn fired a 143 in the two-day championship and nipped La Crescent, Minn., upstart Jordan Graf and last weekend's Kwik Trip Seniors County Am champion Tom McClintock by one stroke. Tyler Church finished fourth with 145.
Graf, in his second County Am after taking up the sport only four years ago, fired a 3-under 68 for a two-shot lead over Dunn in Saturday’s round at the The Golf Club at Cedar Creek in Onalaska.
The duo, playing in the last group Sunday, battled tooth-and-nail, but in the end, it was Dunn's 14-year County Am experience that made the difference.
Dunn moved into a tie with a 1-under par 34 on the front nine at Drugan's, compared to Graf's 36. However, both players struggled on the back nine.
Dunn's trouble began when he bogeyed four of his first five holes on the back.
"I hit some really good shots on the front but the floodgates opened on the back," he said, shaking his head.
Dunn finished with a 3-over 39 for 73. Graf also struggled, ending with 40 for 76.
"I have a big ego," Graf said. "I liked the 68. But I didn't like the 76 today."
Dunn held a one-stroke lead heading into the 18th hole but pulled his drive to the left side of the fairway and into tree trouble. His next shot broke several branches from the pine tree in front of him but got a fortunate bounce that left him just off the fringe on the right side of the green. Dunn chipped to within 5 feet, missed his par putt and salvaged bogey.
Graf had an equally tough time, dumping his drive into the right bunker. He then hit into the rough to the left side of the green, chunked his chip about 10 feet, put his next shot three feet from the cup, then made bogey, handing the title to Dunn.
Ben Skogen, defending champion and winner of the past two County Amateurs, finished fifth with 148 despite shooting 73 Sunday.
"My short game really hurt me," Skogen said. "I thought if I played well today, I could give myself a chance, but I didn't."
This year’s tournament took on a new format due to coronavirus concerns, with the Championship and First Flights playing Saturday at The Golf Club at Cedar Creek and Sunday at Castle Mound. Meanwhile, the Second, Third and Fourth Flights played Saturday at Castle Mound before finishing up Sunday at The Golf Club at Cedar Creek.
"The first County Am title is the most difficult," Dunn said, with a big sigh of relief. "The fact is I hadn't won it. I wanted to win it in the worst way. Now I can say I did."
In other men's action, Mitch Gault won First Flight with 153, Jordan Rudolph captured Second Flight with 162, James Freng won Third Flight with 166 and Eric Flack took Fourth Flight with 170.

La Crescent's Graf leads Pepsi Men's County Amateur

ONALASKA, WI - Jordan Graf only began playing golf four years ago.
Today he is the last player off the tee in the 30th annual La Crosse County Men's Amateur Golf Championship as presented by Pepsi-Cola of La Crosse.
Graf, from La Crescent, MN, was 5-under-par after the first seven holes before finishing with a 3-under 68 and two-shot lead over Jake Dunn at the The Golf Club at Cedar Creek on Saturday.
Sunday's play is at Drugan's Castle Mound Country Club in Holmen, WI.
Graf, playing in only his second County Am, said he didn't play very well last year, shooting 79-77-156, but his game has certainly improved. He posted 33-35-68 on Saturday.
"This is my best round ever," said Graf, a Cedar Creek member.
Ben Skogen, trying to become only the fourth player in La Crosse County Amateur history to win three straight titles, posted 75.
"There's a lot of golf left," said Skogen, the consummate County Amateur champion and eternal optimist. "You can't win it the first day. I'm just going to go out and try to have fun tomorrow."
Dunn started rather poorly, but rallied on the back nine finishing with 37-33-70.
"My first nine was kind of squirrely, but then I got it back," said Dunn, the course superintendent at Forest Hills Golf Course in La Crosse and perennial contender for the County Am championship.
Graf is well aware what lies ahead on Sunday being in the same group with Dunn and last week's Kwik Trip Seniors County Am champion Tom McClintock, who shot 72."I'm definitely going to have to play as well as I did today," Graf said.
Dunn knows Castle Mound like the back of his hand and remains confident.
"I'm going home to Drugan's tomorrow so I'm happy," said Dunn, the former course superintendent at Castle Mound.
Meanwhile, Bruce Lindseth leads the First Flight with 74, while Second Flight belongs to Kyle Larkin with 77. James Freng is atop Third Flight with 82. Monte Jacobson leads Fourth Flight players with 84.
This year’s tournament has taken on a new format due to coronavirus concerns, with the Championship and First Flights playing Saturday at The Golf Club at Cedar Creek and now Sunday at Castle Mound. Meanwhile, the Second, Third and Fourth Flights played Saturday at Castle Mound before finishing up Sunday at The Golf Club at Cedar Creek.

County Am champ hopes to join elite foursome

What do Rich Jungen, Don Iverson, Harvey "Buster" Ott and Ryan Quinn have in common?
They are the only four players in La Crosse County Amateur Golf Championship history to have won three straight titles since the revered tournament began in 1932.
Jungen and Iverson actually won four consecutive County Am championships - Jungen from 1939-1942, and Iverson from 1964-1967. Ott strung together three in a row from 1968-1970, while Quinn won three straight from 2001-2003.  
"It would be an honor to join that company," said Onalaska's Ben Skogen (pictured), hoping to become a member of that foursome after Sunday's final round of the La Crosse County Men's Amateur Golf Championship as presented by Pepsi-Cola of La Crosse.
"Those four players are great golfers in our community!" he added.
Last year, Skogen, a former WIAA state champion at Onalaska High School and a four-year letterwinner on the University of Wisconsin golf team before graduating in 2018, put together rounds of 70-70-140 for a two-shot victory over rival Tyler Church, who stumbled in with 68-74-142.It was a classic nail-biter both days, with Church getting the upper hand during the opening round at The Golf Club at Cedar Creek in Onalaska. His 3-under par 68 gave him a two-shot lead over Skogen entering Sunday's round, but as anyone who has followed the County Amateur knows, no lead is safe.
While they battled back and forth all day, Skogen, who works at Festival Foods in Onalaska, made some crucial shots on the closing holes at Drugan’s Castle Mound Country Club in Holmen and sealed it with a par on the 18th hole when Church bogeyed.
Skogen is currently trying to win his first title in the 119th annual Wisconsin State Golf Association State Amateur Championship at the Milwaukee Country Club. Despite a heavy work schedule this summer, he said his game has been solid.
"I don’t play as much as I used to, but I still get out quite a bit," he said after Tuesday's State Amateur round. "I feel like I don’t put as much pressure on myself and just compete and have more fun than ever, which has helped my game dramatically."
Skogen is unsure what type of two-day score it will take this weekend to win his third County Am title, but he knows what his mindset is going into the 36-hole event.
"I'm just going to compete and play one shot at a time. Just focus on myself and have as much fun as possible," he said.
This year’s tournament has taken on a new format due to Covid-19 concerns, with the Championship and First Flights playing Saturday at The Golf Club at Cedar Creek and Sunday at Castle Mound. Meanwhile, the Second, Third and Fourth Flights open play Saturday at Castle Mound before finishing up Sunday at The Golf Club at Cedar Creek.
Tee times begin at 7:30 a.m. both days. Skogen, Church and James DeBoer, Jr., are in the final group at 9:54 a.m. at The Golf Club on Saturday. All three are looking forward to it.
"Everyone in the area looks forward to this tournament every year," Skogen said.
Meanwhile, 2019 First Flight champion Jeff Pigorsch returns along with champions Tony Friedl (Second Flight), Greg Espenes (Third Flight), and Keith Seidel (Fourth Flight).

La Crescent's Graf leads Pepsi Men's County Amateur

ONALASKA, WI - Jordan Graf only began playing golf four years ago.
Today he is the last player off the tee in the 30th annual La Crosse County Men's Amateur Golf Championship as presented by Pepsi-Cola of La Crosse.
Graf, from La Crescent, MN, was 5-under-par after the first seven holes before finishing with a 3-under 68 and two-shot lead over Jake Dunn at the The Golf Club at Cedar Creek on Saturday.
Sunday's play is at Drugan's Castle Mound Country Club in Holmen, WI.
Graf, playing in only his second County Am, said he didn't play very well last year, shooting 79-77-156, but his game has certainly improved. He posted 33-35-68 on Saturday.
"This is my best round ever," said Graf, a Cedar Creek member.
Ben Skogen, trying to become only the fourth player in La Crosse County Amateur history to win three straight titles, posted 75.
"There's a lot of golf left," said Skogen, the consummate County Amateur champion and eternal optimist. "You can't win it the first day. I'm just going to go out and try to have fun tomorrow."
Dunn started rather poorly, but rallied on the back nine finishing with 37-33-70.
"My first nine was kind of squirrely, but then I got it back," said Dunn, the course superintendent at Forest Hills Golf Course in La Crosse and perennial contender for the County Am championship.
Graf is well aware what lies ahead on Sunday being in the same group with Dunn and last week's Kwik Trip Seniors County Am champion Tom McClintock, who shot 72."I'm definitely going to have to play as well as I did today," Graf said.
Dunn knows Castle Mound like the back of his hand and remains confident.
"I'm going home to Drugan's tomorrow so I'm happy," said Dunn, the former course superintendent at Castle Mound.
Meanwhile, Bruce Lindseth leads the First Flight with 74, while Second Flight belongs to Kyle Larkin with 77. James Freng is atop Third Flight with 82. Monte Jacobson leads Fourth Flight players with 84.
This year’s tournament has taken on a new format due to coronavirus concerns, with the Championship and First Flights playing Saturday at The Golf Club at Cedar Creek and now Sunday at Castle Mound. Meanwhile, the Second, Third and Fourth Flights played Saturday at Castle Mound before finishing up Sunday at The Golf Club at Cedar Creek.

McClintock wins 2nd Kwik Trip Seniors County Amateur

Tom McClintock saved his best for last Sunday in the 29th annual Kwik Trip La Crosse County Seniors Amateur Golf Championship at Forest Hills Golf Course in La Crosse.
Facing a 40-foot chip shot to the 18th green, McClintock (pictured) knocked his ball to less than 6 inches from the cup for an easy par and his second career victory with an even-par 71. McClintock's first victory came in 2017.
"I can't even remember when. It's been so long," McClintock quipped, while sipping on a Captain Morgan and Coke shortly after his round.
McClintock certainly had to work for his second title, holding off playing partners and close friends Paul Williamson and two-time defending champion Mike Bistodeau, who finished one stroke behind. Williamson and Bistodeau, incidentally, are tied for career Seniors titles with four each.
McClintock made the turn in 2-under par 33 before finishing with a 2-over 38 on the back side. Williamson and Bistodeau matched 36 on both sides.
"Yeah, that chip sure saved me on 18," McClintock said, chuckling.
McClintock hit his drive beneath a huge tree in the right rough on 18, then watched his pitch-and-run shot skip across the cart path and race off the back edge of the green.
"Thank God I hit it within 3-4 inches for a tap-in," he said with a deep sigh of relief. "Actually, my 71 could have been 61 because I was hitting the ball so well, but I have a lot to do to be competitive next week with those young guys."
McClintock will tee it up next weekend in the 30th annual 36-hole La Crosse County Men's County Amateur Golf Championship, slated for Saturday, Aug. 1 and Sunday Aug. 2, at The Golf Club at Cedar Creek in Onalaska and Drugan's Castle Mound Country Club in Holmen. McClintock is a perennial top 10 finisher each year but has yet to find that elusive first title.
Williamson, the all-time Men's County Am champ with seven titles, put pressure on McClintock on the 15th hole Sunday when he birdied while McClintock plopped his approach shot into the pond and took bogey. It was a two-shot swing, but Williamson couldn't quite rally enough on the final three holes.
"I played pretty steady but couldn't make enough putts. My speed was off," said the savvy lefty Williamson. "The golf course was really in good shape. Jake (Dunn, course superintendent) is really doing a great job.
"I hit the ball good, but I have to make putts," Williamson lamented.
McClintock and Williamson will be in the same pairing again on Saturday.
Paul Bruha captured First Flight with 80, Daniel M. Breeden won Second Flight with 84 and James Freng won the Super Seniors Low Net Flight with 81-71.
