HOLMEN, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Saturday's deluge drowned-out any hope of playing a full 36-holes in the La Crosse Tribune County Amateur Golf Tournament.
Instead the it would be both shortened and lengthened: Shortened in the sense that only 27 holes were played but lengthened for those golfers having to play a marathon Sunday round.
Four-time winner Paul Williamson found himself five strokes back after the round of nine at Cedar Creek. He said he went home after that and shortened the shaft of his putter by an inch.
It worked for Williamson who said he needed only eleven putts to get around the front nine of Drugan's Castle Mound and 27 total for the round. Williamson ended up winning the tournament by a stroke carding a total score of a two-over par 109.
"It was all putting. I made a lot of putts," he said "It was a lot of fun to see them go in the hole again."
It was also another great tournament for Mike Bistodeau who finished tied for second at three-over. This result came after Bistodeau won both the Lawn Care Specialists Cup and Senior County Am in July.
