Goodwin Wins 2020 Turtleback Open in Playoff.
North Central Minnesota College
Standout Dean Goodwin won his
first CVGA event by sinking a 15 foot putt for
birdie on the second playoff
hole (No. 8) on a beautiful sunny day in
Rice lake, WI. Finishing
Runner-Up was Brian Hills of Buffalo, MN. Both
players shot 69 on fast greens
and tight pins at Turtleback.
Phenomenal play by both players.
Finishing 3rd was junior player
Nick Mueller of Baldwin, WI,
who shot 71. Fourth went to Dylan
Merchant….another junior player, who shot
72. It’s amazing how so many young
players have starting to emerge
on the CVGA Tour. And then…there was 14
year old William Schlitz, of Eau
Claire…who fired a 79 on a very tough Turtleback
golf course set up.
It’s these young players that “light me
up” as they start their golf
journeys. It’s exciting to watch.
Let’s not forget the old guys
either. Mark Sippel (Age 68) fired a very
respectable 76. Nice Job
Sip. Is the CVGA not for everyone? You
thanks go out to Kevin Carter and his
staff at Turtleback for running such a
professional and premier event in Rice
Lake. Thanks Kevin!!
next stop on the CVGA Tour is Lake Wissota
on August 30th. (Rain
