Kaiser ties for 18th in Wisconsin State Open

MENASHA, WI - Professional Jeffrey Kaiser, formerly of Onalaska, finished in a tie for 18th place in the 98th annual Morgan Stanley Wisconsin State Open.
Kaiser (pictured), a former Onalaska High School and University of Wisconsin golf standout now living in Verona, shot 68 and 72 on Wednesday to go with 73 and 72 earlier in the week for a 5-over par 285 total at North Shore Golf Club in Menasha.
Holmen's Keegan Drugan finished with a pair of 74s for a 287 total and a tie for 21st place.
Meanwhile, Dan Woltman won his third Wisconsin State Open - his first as a professional.
“A win’s a win,” Woltman said. “It doesn’t matter where you’re playing. I’ve had a lot of close chances in this tournament in the last seven or eight years and it’s been frustrating to not close the door. I was in position a lot of times, and I was in position today, and I just wanted to get off to a good start, which I did.”
Woltman, 31, who lives in Sun Prairie, finished at 7-under-par 273 for a five-stroke victory and first-place $10,000 check. He closed with 69 and 67 on Wednesday.
Garrett Loomis, a newly turned professional from River Falls, finished in second place with 278.
The 2019 Wisconsin State Open Championship is scheduled at Geneva National Golf Club in the Lake Geneva area.
