Turtleback Open

Sunday, Aug. 20, 2017

bachThe CVGA is Bach!!! David Bach that is.  The Wild Ridge Assistant from Milwaukee won his second CVGA tournament of the year by shooting a  4 under par 67 to win the 2017 Turtleback Open in Rice Lake.  His first win came earlier in the year at Mill Run.  In second place and widening his CVGA Player of the Year point lead was Ryan Isaacson of Eau Claire, who shot 69.  Ryan will captain the UW Eau Claire  Blugolds this year and will not be able to play the Tournament of Champions on Sept. ninth  Mark Chioniere of Stillwater will have to finish first or second at the T of C to overtake Ryan….stay tuned!  In third place was Golden Gopher, Thomas Longbella of Chippewa Falls, who fired an even par71.   Good Luck to Thomas as he will begin his sophomore season for the U of Minnesota.  Former Wisconsin State Amateur Champion Travis Meyer shot 72 to finish fourth .  Great job by all the staff at Rice Lake, especially Coach Tom, who did the scoreboard and skins winnings for us.  A  total of 72 golfers participated.  Next up…the biggest tournament of the year, the CVGA Tournament of Champions.  Get your entry in NOW!  I would really hate to tell someone we are full, and we are way ahead of last year’s entries at this time.
