2007 Tournament of Champions

 Allen wins T of C, Johnson captures Player of the Year
 
 
 Jason Allen shot a five-under par round of 67 Sunday to win his second consecutive
Chippewa Valley Golf Association Tournament of Champions title at Hillcrest Golf
and Country Club in Altoona.
 
 
 And Neil Johnson of River Falls shot two-under par 70 Sunday to finish in second
place in the tournament and claim the 2007 CVGA Player of the Year award.
 
 
 Troy Shea of Menomonie, who led the tournament after Saturday's first round by four
shots, struggled mightily Sunday, shooting an 11-over par 83 to finish in eighth
place.
 
 
 Allen, of Stevens Point, became the first player to win back-to-back T of Cs since
Leif Carlson did it in 1997-98.
 
 
 Eric Rolland of Rogers, Minn. shot a one-under 71 Sunday to end up in third place,
five shots back of Allen. Steve Jensen of Eau Claire carded an even-par 72 Sunday
to finish in fourth place for the tournament. And Mark Sperling of Lakeville, Minn.
came in at one-over 73 Sunday to take fifth place.
 
 
 One day after setting the new CVGA Tournament of Champions one-round record by
shooting a seven-under par 65, Shea got off to a troubling start when he
double-bogeyed the first two holes. 
 
 
 On Saturday, Eric Stabenow of Eau Claire, an assistant pro at the Eau Claire
Country Club, won the long drive contest with a launch of 311 yards. Stabenow also
won the long drive contest at last year's T of C.
