Paul Williamson defends County Am title, makes history

Posted: Updated:
Onalaska, WI (WXOW) -

Paul Williamson shot a final-round 74 to capture his record-setting seventh La Crosse County Men's Amateur Golf Championship Sunday.

His 3-over par effort was the lowest round of the day at The Golf Club at Cedar Creek, host of the second day of the event. Combined with his opening-round 70 at Drugan's Castle Mound on Saturday, Williamson shot a combined 144 for the tournament, two better than Day 1 leader Josh Dirks.

"It hasn't sunk in yet probably, but it was just a very tough day today," Williamson said afterward. "It's pretty cool to be able to win that many times with the talent around this area for amateur golf. It means a lot to me."

Bennett Laxton finished third with a 147, Ben Skogen was fourth with a 148, and Eric Olson and Tom McClintock tied for fifth with a 150.

Erik Burton won the First Flight with a total score of 155 while Thomas Olsen won the Second Flight with a two-round total of 164. Eric Flack won the Third Flight with a score of 165, and Steve Crogan won the Fourth Flight with a 177.
