Almquist & Weinbrenner
Win the 2016
Tourney at UM Les Bolstad GC
Almquist, Minnesota Twins Grounds Staff, (pictured on left)
and Roger Weinbrenner CSFM, University of St. Thomas,
partnered to shoot par 71 at the University of
Minnesota Les Bolstad Golf Course in Falcon Heights to capture the 1st
Annual MPSTMA Golf Tournament. The Almquist/Weinbrenner
pairing birdied the 18th hole to tie Jacob Button, University of Minnesota, and Jeff Turtinen, MTGF/MPSTMA, but were deemed champions in a
scorecard playoff. A post-tournament gathering took place at
nearby Station 280.
The MPSTMA Golf Tournament came about when this year's
Chapter Clash was postponed. Iowa could get enough players
to field a team and travel to Minnesota due to many
mid-summer tournaments and other conflicts.
The players had such a good time, that afterwards, it was
decided that this will become an annual event on the MPSTMA
