SCHMIERER & BORGEN WIN SEASON LONG 4-BALL MATCH PLAY CHAMPIONSHIP
In what was one of the more bizzare championship matches, Brad Schmierer of Hastings CC and Chris Borgen of Lost Spur GC defeated Tim Brovold of Bunker Hills GC and Mike Marshall of Oak Ridge CC 1-up in 31 holes. After playing their original 18 hole match at Golden Valley G&CC, the two teams remained all square. They played four more holes before play needed to be suspended due to darkness with them still being tied. After much deliberation and discussion, the two teams decided to play a 9 hole match at Legends Club to settle the championship. After 31 holes and two different golf courses, Schmierer and Borgen got a much-deserved victory. MN PGA 4-Ball Match Play Results
