Tyler Tribute - Page 16 Wednesday, June 29, 2016 nue This crew, golfing at Dakota Ridge, failed to qualify for the Ryder Cup. Thirty-three teams in Ladies' Golf Invitational at Tyler Golf Club Tuesday The weather was out- standing as 33 two-person teams teed it up in the an- nual Ladies' Invitational last Tuesday in Tyler. The ladies would play a scram- ble format for 18 holes of play. The top score for the day was a 75. The twosome of Sue Musch and Renatta Johnson would fire that score to win. Sharon Han- son and Terry Borchert nailed a 77 for second place in the top flight. Marci Dressen and Sonja Lund took third place in the flight with a 78. Lissa Gravley and Kristy Thom- sen also shot a 78 but fin- ished fourth because of tie- breakers. There were eight teams in the first three flights and nine squads in the final flight. Diane Buessing and Dori Buessing combined to win the second flight with a score of 83. Rebecca Johnson and Allysson Mid- taune also shot an 83, but finished in second place. Bobbi Werkman and Susan Norgaard used their tal- ents to shoot an 84, which was good enough for third place. Dawn Heidebrink and Nancy Oye finished with a 90 to capture the top spot in the third flight. Rochelle Borresen and Alissa Chris- tianson took second place with a score of 90. Also shooting a 90 and taking third place were the two- some of Robbyn Kerkaert Kope's Short Shots By Jim Kopel and Amy Rubin. The final and fourth flight winners were the twosome of Norma Giles and Donnita Bennett. They would fire a 95 for 18 holes. Kari Hansen and Te- resa ]ohansen also found a 95 on their scorecard af- ter 18 holes of play. They would finish second while another 95 shot by Andrea Babcock and Hillary Bu- chert took third place in the flight. The ladies were very im- pressed by the condition of the course. The club- house help was outstand- ing as usual. Another great job was done by Lance and his help on the outside and Ruth and her help on the inside. The first night of youth lessons was held on Mon- day, the 20th of June. There were almost 40 young kids who showed up for the first night. The ages ranged from 5 years old to about 13 years old. Yes, it is quite a challenge to keep the young ones un- der control when there are 13 or 14 kids trying to do something they have prob- ably not done much of to- date. My group of kids did NOT have anyone hitting any other kid with a ball or club. Of course, there are more weeks to go for that to happen. The foursome of Kullen and Kenton Stanek, Tom Mundt and myself golfed at the Casino golf Course in Morton last Wednes- day. We would shoot a re- spectable 60 for 18 holes in a scramble format. We had a very good chance to break 60 if we would have eagled the final hole, a par five. We were on the green in two shots, about 15 feet from the hole. We all missed our attempt at eagle. We decided not to leave the green until we made the putt. About 15 minutes later and about 50 attempts, we finally made the putt. Of course, the putt did not count. We have probably all played in a scramble for- mat in a golf tournament. We used to play our own ball then turned a score in past tournaments. That concept of golf has changed over the years. Another form of play is the four-ball concept. This form is a match in which all four golfers each play their own balls until they have lost every one of them, at which point play shifts to a "no ball" format and they head to the 19th hole where the number of shots doesn't matter. Until next week, remember the name of the game is to lim- it your shots on the course and the 19th hole. The Buffalo Ridge Wild- cats advance in the play- offs, despite only having 15 players, with a 61-14 win over the Watertown Rebels. Once again the Wildcats defense played a good game with one fum- ble recovery, five intercep- tions and three quarter- back sacks, even though five defensive starters were missing. Jon Gorter led the team with nine tackles and one interception. Austin Ap- pel had eight tackles and Enrique Gomez added six. Travis King had six tackles as well as a fumble recov- ery, a batted pass and an in- terception he returned for a touchdown. ]] McGeath had two interceptions and one-and-a-half quarter- back sacks. Jonah Walker added two-and-a-half sacks and Zach Schrank had one interception. Quarterback T] Oates completed 11 of 25 passes for 167 yards and three touchdowns. David Oates caught eight of those passes for 135 yards and two touchdowns and King caught two passes for 22 yards and one touchdown. The Wildcats leading runner was TJ Oates who ran the ball 11 times for 78 yards and three touch- downs while McGeath ran the ball seven times for 34 yards and one touchdown. David Oates ran in a two- point conversion. Riley Hanson put points on the scoreboard with a nifty 42-yard punt return for a touchdown and kick- er David Oates made five of eight extra point tries. The Wildcats will play the Midwest Rampage af- ter they upset the third- place 7-1 Med City Freeze. This game will be at 6 p.m., Saturday, July 2 in Lake Benton. This year the SPFL is go- ing to have the Stars vs. Stripes all-star game at 1 p.m., followed by the the SPFL Championship game at 4 p.m. Both games will be played at the Gustavus Adolphus Football field in St. Peter on July 16. Fol- lowing the games, there will be a post-game cel- ebration rock concert at the Mankato Civic Center. Tickets for all three events are on sale now and can be purchased at the league website, for $5 or at the gate for $10. Six Wildcats were cho- sen for the all-star teams. Brett Delaney, wide re- ceiver, Matt Carmody, de- fensive lineman and David Oates, wide receiver/kick- er, will play for the Stars and T] Oates, quarterback, Clayton Dahl, center, and ]on Gorter, offensive line backer, will play on the Stripes team. in Lincoln County's Verdi is just one of the many lost towns featured in the newly-released "Minne- sota's Lost Towns, South- ern Edition" by Minnesota author Rhonda Fochs.
