Larson wins granpa's tournament

Jesse Larson almost didn't compete in his grandpa's golf tournament because he's playing in the state amateur and state open tournaments this week.

But he changed his mind, shot a 107 and beat Tony Krogen of Marshall by four strokes to win the Wynston Boe Championship in Minneota on Sunday.

"It is grandpa's tournament and I was a list minute entrant," said Larson.

Anyway, "I play better when I play alot," he said.

"I figured rather than practicing and preparing by myself, "I'd come here," he said.

The tournament is named after his grandfather, Wynston Boe and it's the eighth time Larson has won the tournament and it was his fourth straight title.

"He's way ahead of me," said Boe about his grandson. "It's fun to follow him," he said.

Krogan finished second with a 111 with Tyler Pronk third at 113 and Ric Sorenson fourth at 117.

Other winners were:

Presidents: Cody Gossen 113; First Flight: Nathan Lange 115; Second Flight: Mike Kon; Third Flight: Bob Coonradt; Fourth Flight: Bill Vlamink; Fifth Flight: Dick LaBat; Sixth Flight: Tom Pickering.
