The next time you stop by Brooktree in Owatonna, stop at the pro shop and see if Tom is there, and if he is, offer a big handshake as he recently got the Minnesota Senior PGA Professional Championship won August!
The Minnesota Professional Golf Association scoreboard for the event, which was held in New Richmond Wisconsin, tells the story of Thomas Vizina of Brooktree Golf Course, who played a playoff against Eric Chiles of Chaska Town and Country Golf Course and Don Berry of Edinburgh USA Golf Club won.
Berry is a four-time Minnesota Senior PGA Professional Champion who won in 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2020.
All three golfers finished the two-round tournament with a score of -1.
It should be noted that Vizina landed with 7 birdies during the tournament, which was in second place over the course of the tournament, which means that he was on his game in almost all facets. If you want birdies, you need to keep your ball dry and generally in shortgrass.
Vizina was the better overall player on both days on the top 9 with a total score of -2 with 10 pars and 5 birdies with a double bowey at # 11.
The win grossed Vizina $ 1,400, placing him # 36 on the Minnesota PGA Money List.
Congratulations to Tom on his championship, but do we all get a few drinks on him?
