Ebner in Front Early at Minnesota Senior Open

MAPLEWOOD, Minn. – Nearly 20 years removed from his last state victory, former University of Minnesota golfer Phil Ebner carded a 4-under 68 Tuesday at Keller Golf Club to take the first-round lead at the 39 th  Minnesota Senior Open presented by Yamaha Golf and Utility.

When the championship resumes Wednesday, Ebner will take a one-stroke lead over defending champion Derek Stendahl and 2021 Minnesota Golf Association Senior Men’s Player of the Year Tim Peterson into the final round.

“I haven’t played much competitive golf over the last 10 years—it’s good to get back,” said Ebner, who posted a final-round 72 to finish tied for 27 th  last season. “If you’ve done it before, you kind of feel again after a while, but there’s no doubt that I was getting nervous.

“Honestly, I was pretty solid all the way around—the driver didn’t get me into trouble, I birdied the holes I needed to birdie and only made two or three putts outside of six feet for par.”

Ebner began his opening round with a pair of birdies over his first nine holes to turn in 2-under before reaching the par-5 10 th  in two, leading to his third birdie of the round.

Missing a 4-footer for par at the 13 th  resulted in Ebner’s only bogey of his first round Tuesday, but he answered by converting a 12-footer for birdie at the 15 th  to get back to 3-under.

Ebner wedged his approach inside of six feet at the 17 th  and capitalized on his birdie opportunity to take the outright lead at 4-under.

He nearly holed his birdie putt from 40 feet at the last, tapping in for par to post an opening-round 68.

“Tomorrow I’m going to come in and enjoy it because it’s been a while. My goal coming in was to start playing more competitively so when I’m 55, I can start playing in more [senior amateur] stuff and get back to the way I used to be.”

Ebner, who played for the Gophers from 1992 to 1994, won the 2004 MGA Amateur Four-Ball Championship with partner Ryan Paulson. Since 1999, Ebner has collected more than 15 top-10 finishes, including three top-10s at the MGA Amateur Championship.

“You retire from coaching and then you can actually play some golf,” said the former Edina High School boys golf coach.

Looking to become the first back-to-back winner of the championship since Don Berry successfully repeated in 2020, Derek Stendahl’s 3-under 69 put him one off the lead following Tuesday’s first round.

“It was an awful day with my driver and that’s usually my bread and butter,” Stendahl said Tuesday. “I was just not in great positions, but knocked it around and made some good birdies.

“I got lucky on a couple of bad drives and still had shots into greens. I probably hit about 14 greens, but just wasn’t in great position. When I was in the fairway, I didn’t capitalize.”

Turning in 2-under Tuesday, Stendahl was over the 10 th  green with his second, but would get up-and-down for birdie to share the lead at 3-under.

From 90 yards at the 16 th , Stendahl’s wedge stopped 10 feet from the cup, and he would convert his birdie chance to join Ebner at 4-under, but he gave back a stroke with a bogey at the 17 th  to post a 3-under 69 to earn a share of second.

“It’ll be fun again to be in the last group,” said Stendahl, who earned a two-stroke victory with a final-round 70 last season. “I can’t count on bad drives ending in good spots because out here, a bad drive can get you in big trouble. I need to capitalize on a few more wedges and give myself better looks.”

Stendahl entered the championship Tuesday fresh off his appearance at the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship in Frisco, Texas last week, where he shot 76-72 to miss the cut by two strokes.

“It’s worked out pretty well because I’ve been playing for seven days now,” he said. “It’s completely different type of grass and greens, so it doesn’t really translate, but you’re swinging and playing and getting the feel.”

A second victory for Stendahl Wednesday would make him the fifth player with multiple wins at the championship since its inception in 1985.

Peterson, who notched his first state victory at the MGA Senior Amateur Four-Ball Championship with partner John Brellenthin last season, had an up-and-down front nine to turn in 2-under before settling in.

His lone birdie during his back nine came at the 16 th  when he stuck his approach inside of two feet, going on to finish one back of the lead with a 3-under 69.

“I had a nice start with birdies at three of the first four holes and ran into a little trouble on seven and eight,” Peterson said. “I was pretty steady and it was about what I should’ve shot. I putted a little better than I usually do—that’s normally not a strength of my game.

“I kept it in front of me today and didn’t get in too much trouble, except the two I bogeyed where I got out of position. [Tomorrow] I’m hoping to do the same thing.”

Mark Aldrich and Rick Frieburg each posted rounds of 2-under Tuesday and will begin the final round tied for fourth, two shots off the lead.

Chris Borgen (Lost Spur GC), winner of the 2022 Minnesota Golf Champions, fired an opening-round 71 to earn a share of sixth place, three shots off the lead.

Don Berry, a seven-time winner of the event, will begin Wednesday’s final round five shots off the lead following his 1-over 73, tied for ninth. Berry’s most recent win came in 2020, prevailing in a playoff against Dale Jones.

Also tied for ninth are 2011 champion Bill Israelson (Bemidji Town and Country) and George Smith (StoneRidge Golf Club).

Tee times for the final round of the 39 th  Minnesota Senior Open begin at 8 a.m. Tuesday at Keller Golf Club.

Twice a champ, golfer wants one more trophy before heading to U

Reese McCauley has her sights set on joining elite company.

The Simley senior will be looking to become only the seventh girls golfer in state history to become at least a three-time medalist when the Class 3A two-day tournament begins Tuesday at Bunker Hills in Coon Rapids. The final round will conclude Wednesday.

"Every year is different," said McCauley, who received the Ms. Minnesota Golf award Sunday as the state's top senior girl. "The goal is to win it, but I just want to play my best."

The Class 2A and 1A tournaments will take place at the same time at Ridges at Sand Creek in Jordan (2A) and Pebble Creek in Becker.

Kate Smith of Detroit Lakes won five individual titles, Katie Detlefsen of Minnehaha Academy captured four and Sophia Yoemans of Red Wing, Samantha Sommers of St. Cloud Apollo, Liza LaBelle of Breck and Jody Rosenthal of Hopkins Eisenhower each won three. All were in consecutive years.

McCauley is looking for her third in a four-year span. Ranked No. 1 on the state by the Minnesota Golf Association and committed to the Gophers for college, she is the defending state champion and also was medalist in 2021.

"I would definitely be thrilled if I won it for a third time," McCauley said. "It would be cool to be part of the group. It would be amazing."

McCauley will be able to gauge how she is doing during the opening round. The Nos. 5-7 players in the MGA rankings — Orono junior Ava Hanneman, St. Michael-Albertville eighth-grader Abigail Labrador and Cretin-Derham Hall senior Lily Vincelli — are in her foursome.

"I'm playing in a really good group," McCauley said. "I'm excited and looking forward to it."

No. 2-ranked Maple Grove senior Amelia Morton and Minnetonka's tandem of freshman Kieley Hanson, ranked third, and sophomore Selena Wu, ranked fourth, are in groups shortly behind McCauley.

Morton's Crimson team is the defending team state champion and is favored to go back-to-back.

The Crimson boys team is also ranked No. 1, led by top-ranked senior Ryan Stendahl. He is also headed to the Gophers, and he was declared Mr. Minnesota Golf on Sunday.

Spring Lake Park senior Jake Birdwell, ranked second, is the defending state champion. His younger brother, freshman Chase, is No. 4, right behind Cretin-Derham Hall junior Sam Udovich.

There will be a new boys team champion crowned as 2023 winner Edina got beat by Benilde-St. Margaret's in the Section 6 tournament.

Two other individual medalists are also looking to go back-to-back. Staples-Motley junior Carter White, who is ranked fifth in the state, is the favorite in the Class 2A boys field, and Legacy Christian senior Raquelle Nelson, the Class 1A girls defending champion, makes the jump to Class 2A this year.

Totino-Grace, the Class 2A boys defending team champion, is led by No. 6-ranked senior Peyton Savageau.

Pequot Lakes is positioned to repeat as Class 2A girls champ, but Lake City has an excellent shot to dethrone the Patriots. Lake City, led by sixth-ranked Jordana Windhorst-Knudsen, won back-to-back titles in 2021 and 2022.

Lakeview is favored to successfully defend its Class 1A boys team championship.

The future of golf around the state looks bright. Here are five more boys and girls golfers who aren't seniors to keep an eye on in the state tournament:

Boys: Chanhassen juniors Lucas Arntsen and Andrew Ballou; Walker-Hackensack-Akeley junior Parker Brock; Cretin-Derham Hall junior Joe Honsa; Edina junior Torger Ohe.

Girls: Maple Grove freshman Payton Anderson; Pequot Lakes junior Genevieve Birkeland; Hawley junior Sophie Cook; Hill-Murray sophomore Emma Fitzmorris; and Owatonna sophomore Carmen Jirele.

Pearson caps senior year with state golf medal, 2024 all-journal golf • ben pearson, mvl • boys golfer of the year.

minnesota senior golf tour

File photo by Ari Selvey Minnesota Valley Lutheran’s Ben Pearson, pictured in this May 28 file photo from the first round of the Section 2A Boys Golf Tournament at North Links Golf Course in North Mankato, was named the All-Journal Boys Golfer of the Year on Friday.

NEW ULM — Ben Pearson’s seventh-place finish at the Class A State Golf Tournament this year was more than just a personal achievement.

Not only was it the first time that Pearson had medaled with a top-eight finish in the state tournament at Pebble Creek Golf Club in three trips, but it was also Minnesota Valley Lutheran’s first-ever state golf medalist.

“It’s just a great opportunity to have our school, MVL, to be shown and represent them and bring a good name to them,” Pearson said. “It was a great opportunity and I couldn’t have done it without coach [Craig] Morgan either.”

For this achievement, and his play all season long, Pearson has been selected as the All-Journal Boys Golfer of the Year.

“I feel very grateful,” Pearson said. “I’d like to give all glory to God, and I just couldn’t do it without the support from him and from a lot of my friends and, most importantly, my family.”

Pearson shot a 75 on Day 1 and a 74 on Day 2 of the tournament to finish 5-over-par, his best finish by nine strokes at state. Pearson had previously shot 158 in 2023 and 162 in 2022 at the state tournament.

“For the state tournament, it was nice,” Pearson said. “It was my third time going to state, so that was super fun and it was a great atmosphere. I had a lot of course knowledge that I have gained throughout the three years that I have been there, and for me to be able to accomplish what I did and to play almost to the best of my ability. I left it all out on the course.”

On the season, Pearson shot an 18-hole average of 78.75, meaning he actually shot better at a difficult Pebble Creek Golf Course than he did on average this year.

“I put in a lot of practice and time with my dad and my mom and my sister,” Pearson said. “So it was just a lot of practice. I played a couple days before just to get the feel of things. Then the practice round at state really helped me. I was really feeling my shot that practice round. Then to be able to bring it over and translate it onto the course when it mattered was super clutch and was a great way to go out.”

Pearson said the biggest reason for his improvement was simply repetition.

“A lot of practice,” he said. “You can’t be good without practice. I did a lot of drills with my dad and my dad really helped me get better. He’s the coach at [Martin Luther College], so he has a lot of really good drills. I want to take a piece of his mind and to be able to translate what he knows into my game so I can become the best golfer possible. I think that’s one of the big reasons I played better this year than seasons past.”

Pearson was also awarded with his third All-Conference selection this year after being Honorable Mention his freshman year.

Pearson will continue his basketball and golfing career at MLC next season.

“I’m kind of excited,” he said. “I don’t really know a lot about what the season brings. I don’t know how good the golfers are in the conference or how that will look. But a couple of my goals are just to be better than this year, to always be working on and improving my game. I want to always be getting better, I don’t want to plateau at all, I want to be striving to get better.

“Having my dad as my coach will be a great pro into my game, because he can now walk beside me in my meets instead of 25 yards away. And with him knowing my game, he’ll help me on the course, especially this coming year, which I think will be a big positive toward my golf game at MLC.”

U.S. Open 2024 — Round 2 leaderboard, tee times, scores, news

U.S. Open rookie Ludvig Åberg will enter the weekend leading the U.S. Open after a second-round 69 put him 5-under par through 36 holes.

Åberg, 24, hit 26-of-28 fairways through two rounds to set himself up well on Pinehurst No. 2’s difficult conditions. Åberg, a college star at Texas Tech, swept the big three collegiate awards as best player in the country a year ago. He played so well when he turned pro that Europe made him the first player ever picked for a Ryder Cup spot before even playing in a major. Then, in his major debut, he finished second at The Masters in April.

Right behind is a group at 4-under with Bryson DeChambeau, Patrick Cantlay and Thomas Detry leading the way. DeChambeau will play in the final group with Åberg on Saturday.

World No. 3 Rory McIlroy also remains right in the mix. He entered Friday tied with Cantlay for the lead at 5-under but shot a 72 in the second round due to a tough day putting to drop to 3-under.

Scottie Scheffler, the world No. 1 and reigning Masters champion, shot a second-round 74 sitting at 5-over-par. His crucial par save out of a tough bunker on his final hole turned out to be enough to just barely make the cut.

Leaderboard:

  • -5: Åberg (69)
  • -4: DeChambeau (69), Detry (67), Cantlay (71)
  • -3: McIlroy (72), Finau (69), Pavon (70)

Ludvig Åberg holds 36-hole lead at U.S. Open after second-round 69

U.S. Open rookie Ludvig Åberg will enter the weekend leading the U.S. Open after a second-round 69 put him 5-under-par through 36 holes.

Åberg, 24, hit 26-of-28 fairways through two rounds to set himself up well on Pinehurst No. 2’s difficult conditions. Åberg, a college star at Texas Tech, swept the big three collegiate awards as the best player in the country a year ago. He played so well when he turned pro that Europe made him the first player ever picked for a Ryder Cup spot before even playing in a major. Then, in his major debut, he finished second at The Masters in April.

Tiger Woods on if it could be his last U.S. Open after missing cut: ‘It may or may not be’

PINEHURST, N.C. — After finishing 7 over at the U.S. Open and missing the cut Friday, Tiger Woods said he does not know when it will be his last U.S. Open.

Woods has struggled to find form in his few PGA Tour starts this calendar year. He underwent ankle fusion surgery last April and continues to battle back issues that prevent him from adding more competitive opportunities to his schedule.

He was asked directly whether or not it could be his last U.S. Open.

“As far as my last Open Championship or U.S. Open Championship, I don’t know what that is. It may or may not be,” Woods said.

Headed into his final three holes at Pinehurst No. 2 at 6-over-par, Woods needed one birdie to drop to make the weekend in his first U.S. Open start since 2020. But the 15-time major champion couldn’t get it done, instead bogeying the 16th hole and finishing two shots outside the cut line with a second-round 73.

“I thought I played well enough to be up there in contention,” Woods said. “It just didn’t work out.”

History of Francesco Molinari's aces

Francesco Molinari has three aces on the PGA Tour:

At the 16th at TPC Scottsdale, which induced an avalanche of beers thrown onto the green.

At Bay Hill the week he went on to win.

And now at the U.S. Open on his last hole of round 2 to get inside the cut line.

Francesco. Molinari. Ace.

Francesco Molinari just hit one of the shots of the tournament at the U.S. Open.

At 7-over-par, Molinari converted a hole-in-one on his 18th hole (the par-3 9th).

Molinari improves to 5-over-par, which is inside the cut line.

There is no known instance in U.S. Open history of a player making an ace on his last hole to get inside the 36-hole cut number.

Tiger Woods shoots 73, misses cut

Tiger finishes at 7-over-par

(Photo: Jared C. Tilton / Getty Images)

Tiger Woods shot a second-round 73 Friday at the U.S. Open.

Finishing at 7-over-par, Woods will miss the cut.

Woods hasn't made a cut at a U.S. Open since 2019.

Sergio Garcia likely making cut at U.S. Open

Sergio Garcia will be the first European player in the modern era to make the cut at the U.S. Open 20-plus times.

Tiger bogeys No. 16, making cut unlikely

Tiger Woods has been battling all day as he tries to make the weekend at the U.S. Open.

But with a bogey at No. 16, he falls to 7-over-par for the tournament.

It's looking unlikely that the 15-time major champion will make the cut.

Scottie Scheffler and the U.S. Open that will not bend to his will

PINEHURST, N.C. — It started with a simple question on a poor drive: Dude, what are you doing?

It progressed to a club flip, a visceral tossing of his putter five feet into the air and above his head. Scheffler’s par putt on 15, his sixth hole of the day, inexplicably broke left at the very final moment, and Scheffler launched his Spider Tour X in the air and turned in disgust without even an attempt to catch it. He let it just thump to the ground.

Soon he was talking to himself again. His tee shot into the par 3 17th went straight into the left-side bunker. “Maybe the worst golf shot I’ve ever seen you hit,” Scheffler told himself.

And this is all before he missed a birdie attempt on the second hole. He covered his face in sincere shock, walked to his bag by the next tee and slammed his putter in his bag so hard the special edition U.S. Open TaylorMade bag fell to the ground. Scheffler had to pick it up and frustratedly slam it back down.

So by the time the disaster hole arrived at Pinehurst’s fifth hole, by the time Scheffler’s greatest U.S. Open nightmare really appeared in the form of a double bogey, Scheffler was no longer angry. He was resigned to the reality that this was not his day. He had four more holes to get through. Four more holes to process his feelings on the likelihood he will not win his third major this week in North Carolina. He could sign his scorecard and talk to reporters in oddly good spirits, joking about his poor day and the ways Pinehurt’s native areas got the better of him.

This is where you should stop and be reminded we saw a foreign sight Friday. We saw Scottie Scheffler — golf’s No. 1 player, a juggernaut winning five tournaments in eight weeks, a man who recently went 10 months between rounds over par — in danger of missing the cut after a Friday 74, putting him 5-over-par for the week. One might call it history.

Bryson DeChambeau joins the broadcast

DeChambeau 4-under-par

(Photo: Tracy Wilcox / PGA Tour via Getty)

Underneath an umbrella in the shade, Bryson DeChambeau joined Smylie Kaufman on the NBC broadcast.

DeChambeau, who creates his own content on various social media platforms, was very natural on the mic.

He and Kaufman dissected various shots on the course. DeChambeau predicted that Ludvig Åberg had a makeable birdie putt on No. 12.

A few moments later, Åberg drained the birdie to improve to 6-under-par.

DeChambeau sits at 4-under-par for the tournament after a second-round 69.

Cantlay bogeys 12

After a birdie on the 11th, Patrick Cantlay follows it up with a bogey on No. 12.

Cantlay led the field in strokes gained tee-to-green in round one.

He's currently 112th Friday in that statistic.

Woods and Koepka having it tough

T82: Woods (+6) +2 thru 12

Bad news here for Tiger Woods , who bogeys the par-4 12th and that drops him to 6-over for the championship. Woods in serious danger of missing the cut now.

The same danger is growing for Brooks Koepka too, as he suffers a three putts for a triple-bogey 7 at the third. He’s now 4-over through 12 and looking pretty angry.

As someone has already joked, it seems unlikely he’ll be taking any questions after this round — having spurned the idea of doing so last night too.

Cantlay back to share the lead

T1: Cantlay (-5) E thru 11

Patrick Cantlay is back at the top, joining Ludvig Aberg at 5-under and with a share of the lead.

That’s thanks to a birdie 3 at the 11th, taking his time over the 5ft putt and even adjusting the line, before rolling it home.

Still, the leading mark remains here it was at the start of today’s play.

Where you need to be after Round 2?

Each of the last 16 men's major winners have been within three of the lead after round two.

26 of the last 28 U.S. Open winners have been within three through 36 holes.

Hot conditions + Ludvig Aberg in control: Notes from on the ground at Pinehurst

Hot conditions + Ludvig Aberg in control: Notes from on the ground at Pinehurst

A couple of notes from the grounds here at Pinehurst:

  • It is so hot. So hot.
  • If you’re watching the broadcast you’re going to see lots of people moving in the background. They’re going to air-conditioned club areas (if they have access) or leaving the property. This happens at most every golf tournament when the conditions are like this — the final couple of hours become a very intimate affair. It doesn’t help that most of the marquee names played this morning, so people got here early to watch them.
  • On the actual golf, saw Ludvig Aberg play with Dustin Johnson and Tony Finau. It’s remarkable how in control Aberg is for his first U.S. Open. He’s in a group with a two-time major champion that has a swagger to him, and Aberg is leading that group in swag. It’s really something.
  • We saw Scottie Scheffler and Rory McIlroy go over the green on 5 from that waste area and be upset about it, but it seems like the right play. I just don’t know how you get a ball to stop on top of that green. Better to pick a spot over there you want to land, and then try to two-putt from it.

Cantlay double bogeys No. 8

Tiger Woods said before the tournament that players would be playing "ping pong" on the Pinehurst greens.

That's what happened to Patrick Cantlay, who double bogeyed No. 8 after taking three attempts to land his ball on the green.

Cantlay falls to 4-under-par and Åberg has a two-shot lead.

Leading/co-leading through 36 holes in U.S. Open debut

Ludvig Åberg is tied for the lead at Pinehurst No. 2.

The last player to lead or co-lead a U.S. Open through 36 holes in their debut was T.C. Chen in 1985.

Åberg, Cantlay tied for the lead

Åberg, Cantlay tied for the lead

Ludvig Åberg, playing in his first U.S. Open, is tied for the lead.

He birdied the par-5 5th to improve to 6-under-par for the tournament.

Patrick Cantlay birdied the sixth hole, moving into a share of the lead.

Balmy conditions at Pinehurst

It's so hot the beer line is almost empty and there's a 10-minute wait at the hydration station.

Pavon tied for the lead

A fast start for Frenchman Matthieu Pavon with back-to-back birdies to open his second round.

Pavon is tied for the lead at 5-under-par.
