Hansen wins Iowa Junior Am in playoff, Depuydt takes Girls’ Junior title by three

Two more Iowa Junior Amateur Champions were crowned on Wednesday at Coldwater Golf Links in Ames. Hogan Hansen (above right), from Waverly, defeated Nate Spear in a playoff to finish first in the Boys’ Division. Tatum Depuydt (above left), of Marion, recorded a three-round total of 225 and won the Girls’ Division by three shots.

After an extremely windy first round, Spear had the edge over the field. Spear carded 1-over 72 and had the low round of the day. Hansen trailed by six shots but knew the weather would be more favorable for his upcoming rounds.

In the second round, Hansen fired a 3-under 68 and climbed into first place. In that round, Hansen recorded four birdies and eagled the seventh hole. Spear couldn’t find a spark to his second round and finished with a 76.

A late final round battle between Hansen and Spear started to brew. Spear, who was down four shots with seven holes to play, flipped a switch and caught fire. He holed out for eagle on the par-4 12th and birdied holes 14, 15 and 16. Hansen saved par on 18 and the two were bound for a playoff.

In the playoff, Spear found trouble off the tee and then hit into a greenside bunker. Hansen found the fairway, but his second shot went over the green. Both players were trying to make an up-and-down to see if they could extend the playoff, but Spear’s bunker shot stayed short of the green. Hansen made his par putt and won the playoff over Spear to earn the 2021 Iowa Junior Amateur title.

The 2020 Iowa Amateur Champion, Hunter Johnson, managed to hang around the top of the leaderboard and finished in third place overall. Fourth place finisher, Corbin Walker recorded a three-round total of 222 and Mason Weeks posted 224 and earned fifth place.

Tatum Depuydt was heading into her second round in a tie for third place after posting a 79 with a lone birdie coming on the par-3 hole 16. The first-round leader was an Ames native, Eden Lohrbach, who came into the clubhouse with a 76.

Many competitors in the Girls’ division had success in their second rounds as the windy weather calmed down. Amber Henson and Erika Holmberg shared the low round of the day, recording a pair of 73’s. Tatum Depuydt recorded two birdies and shot a round of 75 to play in the last grouping of the final round.

During the final round, Depuydt, Lohrbach and Paige Hoffman continued to fight for first place. Depuydt had the upper hand heading into the back nine and managed to card a 1-under 35. This sealed it and Depuydt posted an even round of 71 and was crowned the 2021 Iowa Junior Girls’ Amateur Champion.

Lohrbach finished in second place after a round of 74 on the final day. Hoffman posted a three-round total of 230 and Kiki Bruner took fourth place with a 234. Amber Henson earned fifth place with a 235 total.

Lots of laughs, memories shared at IGA Father/Son, Parent/Child Championship

Lots of laughs and great moments were shared at this year’s IGA Father/Son and Parent/Child Championship at Jester Park Golf Course in Granger.

Neil Johnson and Robert (Bob) Johnson (pictured above) took home the Father/Son Open Division trophy after firing a 4-under round of 68 on Saturday. The defending champions, John and Tanner Dinnebier fell one stroke short of repeating their same success in last year’s event. This marks the fourth time Bob has been on the winning team, as he won titles with son Jay in 2010 and with Neil in 2012, 2014 and now 2021.

In the Father/Son Young Adult Division, Chad and Henry Baker (right) played lights out and won by eight shots after carding a 3-under 69. Rudy and Michel Evertsen took second place with a solid round of 77 on Sunday.

Maura and Ben Peters (pictured above) held the Parent/Child Open Division trophy after a 1-over round of 73 on Sunday. Rebecca and Troy Delong tied for second place with Paige and Brett Hoffman with a 3-over 75 on Saturday.

The Junior Divisions played on Jester Park’s Par 3 course. The list of winners includes Andy and Grayson Tiedt who claimed the Father/Son 8 and under Division. Willow and Isaac Rodenberg won the Parent/Child 8 and under Division. Bo and Elijah Anderson won the Father/Son 9 and 10 Division and Justin and Jillian Chapman claimed the Parent/Child 9 and 10 Division.

Peck makes charge, wins 2021 Fort Dodge Amateur

The 2020 IGA Player of the Year, Connor Peck (pictured above courtesy of Eric Pratt, Fort Dodge Messenger), took home the Fort Dodge Amateur Championship over the weekend. Peck won his first event in the 2021 season after firing a three-round total, 208 at Fort Dodge Country Club.

In the first two rounds, Peck carded back-to-back rounds of 70 and found himself in third place. Heading into the final round down six shots to Andrew Huseman, Peck did not try to force anything and continued to play his game.

A quick start on the final day was what Peck needed, and he accomplished that. Peck recorded a 3-under 32 on his front nine with help from an eagle on the seventh hole. Posting even (36) on the back nine was just enough to get by Ethan Mechling, who finished in second at 4-under.

In the Senior Division, Terry Cook (left) put on a show in the first round, recording seven birdies and a hole-in-one on the 11th hole. Cook had a 12-shot lead as he approached the tee box in the final round. A hard-fought round of 76 on the final day gave Cook his second win of the 2021 season.

Pat Ryan (right) played three rounds of consistent golf and defeated Joel Yunek in a playoff to give him his first win of the 2021 season. Ryan recorded a three-round total of 222 (72-75-75) and was able to sneak out a win from a tough competitor in Yunek.

The next additional point event on the 2021 schedule will be the Iowa Masters at Veenker Memorial Golf Course in Ames, Iowa. This event will take place on Friday, July 9 through July 11.

McCoy wins 2021 Carroll Amateur in playoff over Peck

The former Carroll Amateur Champion did it again. Nate McCoy (pictured above), of Ankeny, defeated the former IGA Player of the Year, Connor Peck, in a playoff to secure his second career Carroll Amateur victory.

McCoy began his weekend with a 3-under 68 in round one and managed to maintain a lead for all three rounds.

“It is important to get into contention from the start and it really helps keep your intensity level up,” McCoy said.

Heading into the final round with a three-shot lead over Peck, McCoy knew the type of player he was going to face.

“Connor is one of the greatest competitors you could go up against,” McCoy said. “He is very calm and makes good choices. I tried to just play my own ball and focus on what I could control.”

Late in the final round, McCoy and Peck saved par on 16 and headed into the final two-hole stretch.

“He (Peck) hit it to a couple feet on 17 and I hit it to 10-12 feet,” McCoy said. “If I would have missed that putt we would have been tied.”

Heading to 18 with a one-shot lead, McCoy continued to play his game. Peck knew he needed to make something happen to give him a shot at a playoff.

McCoy shared, “Connor hit an unbelievably good wedge shot on 18. I narrowly missed my birdie putt and Connor poured in a beautiful left to right swinger.”

After Peck forced a playoff, McCoy did not change his mind set and continued to play hard. McCoy made a birdie to win the playoff against a tough competitor in Peck.

“My birdie on the 1st playoff hole was a 12-14 foot left to right downhill putt,” McCoy said. “I just tried to give it my best and thankfully it fell. It was a lot of fun playing with Connor. He is truly one of the best guys you will ever play with.”

In the Open Division, Sioux City native, Xan Milligan carded a two-round tally of 153 (79-74). Milligan shared the lead within the division after the first round and followed up his 79 in round one with a 3-over 74 to secure the win by one shot. Michael Clark, of Spencer, made a charge up the leaderboard in the final round with a 1-over 72 and finished in second place.

In the Senior Division Chris Kramer, of West Des Moines, and Gary Ellis, of Norwalk, were tied for the lead after recording a 144 total for two rounds. Kramer was the round one leader after posting a 1-under 70 and then recorded a 3-over 74 in round two. Ellis, who won the title on the first playoff hole over Kramer, was four back entering the final round and managed to shoot a 1-under 70 to finish tied with Kramer.

Des Moines native, James Blackburn won the Super Senior Division by one shot over Brian Fell, of Ames. Blackburn was six shots off the lead entering the final round and fired a 77 to surpass Fell’s two round total of 162.

The next 2021 Additional Point Event will be the Fort Dodge Amateur, starting June 18, and will continue into June 20th. The event will take place in Fort Dodge at the Fort Dodge Country Club.

Watson, Boothe team up for win at IGA Mid-Am Series Event #2

On Saturday, Fiona Watson and Tish Boothe (right) claimed the 2021 Women’s Mid-Am Series Event #2. The tournament was a modified alternate shot format and took place at Edmundson Golf Course in Oskaloosa. Watson and Boothe won the tournament by five shots by carding a 3-over round of 73.

Kelly Nelson and Michelle Klein finished runner-up after shooting a round of 78. Birdies were scarce for many, so it was important to limit the errors. Nelson and Klein battled all day and stayed one shot clear of a three-way tie for third place.

The three-way tie for third place featured Rosalie Kubesheski and Margene Grady who recorded a solid round of 79. Ila Gilbert and Janis Owens started six-over through the first ten holes but managed to go 3-over in their last eight to post a 79 on the day. Julie Buerman and Katie Wenthe also finished in the tie for third place after carding a round of 79.

In the Net Division, Shirly Rochelle and Jackie Warrick put together a round of 70 that featured six (net) birdies. Rochelle and Warrick defeated Ila Gilbert and Janis Owens by one shot. Gilbert and Owens fired a round of 71 with four birdies to earn a second-place finish. Sarah and Nancy Olberding carded a round of 72 and finished in third place.

The next 2021 Women’s Mid-Am Series (Four-Ball format) event will be August 28, at A.H. Blank Golf Course in Des Moines. Registration for this event will close on August 18, at 11:59 p.m.

2021 Ann Griffel Scholarship recipients announced

The Iowa Golf Association (IGA) is delighted to announce the 2021 recipients of the Ann Griffel Scholarship Award (Griffel is pictured above in sport coat). Hannah Fangmann, Madeline Streicher, Amara Lytl, Isabelle Schneidermann and Anna Nacos will receive a one-year scholarship of $2,000. These girls will join the group of 242 other students to have received this award since 1963.

Hannah Fangmann, of Peosta, is the daughter of Jeremy and Brenda Fangmann and will be attending Wartburg College to study business administration in the fall.

“After college, I believe golf can help me establish connections in the business world that could potentially help me get a job, gain a customer, or make a sale,” Fangmann said. “I also hope to share what I have learned and eventually coach future youth golfers. Ultimately, I am grateful for all I’ve learned through golf and will apply it to my future life experiences to be the best person I can be.”


Madeline Streicher, of Edgewood, is the daughter of Darrel and Lisa Streicher. She plans to attend Simpson College this fall and study biochemistry.

“The game of golf has made an immeasurable impact on my life,” Streicher said. ” In the future, due to golf being such a positive and powerful experience in my life, I would love to be able to make an impact in other young people’s lives as well, maybe as a mentor or coach. One thing I am sure of is that I will teach my children to golf. I feel that it’s important for them to learn the sport that has impacted my life so tremendously.”


Amara Lytle, of Cedar Falls, is the daughter of Aaron and Shelli Lytle. Amara will be attending St. Ambrose University and will study industrial engineering in the fall.

“Learning and observing my dad, he helped me realize practicing and playing golf will not only improve my game and course management, but enhance life management skills,” Lytle said. “Skills that will improve my golf game and will boost my overall social awareness and ability to establish and maintain relationships.”


Isabelle Schneidermann, of Rock Rapids, is the daughter of Scott and Natalie Schneidermann. She plans to attend Northwestern College (Orange City) in the fall and study actuarial science.

“The sport (of golf) is very competitive, but also can be very conversational,” Schneidermann said. “This is one of the many things I love about the sport. Some of my best friends have been other people I have golfed with throughout the years. I enjoy finding someone who is better than me and pushing myself to beat them. The feeling you get when you finally do is unmatched. There are many reasons I love this game.”


Anna Nacos, of Washington, is the daughter of Dave and Lisa Nacos. In the fall she will attend the University of Northern Iowa to study biology.

“The game of golf has been so much more than just a sport in my life,” Nacos said. “Throughout my career I have made the best memories, made new friendships, and received the opportunity to play golf in college. I can truly say that golf has been a huge benefit in my life and I am grateful to play such a great sport.”

The Ann Griffel Scholarship was established in 1963. It originated as just one $350 scholarship awarded by the Iowa Women’s Golf Association (IWGA) and has evolved into a $2,000 scholarship awarded to multiple high school senior girls who intend to further their education at an Iowa institution of higher learning, whether a college, university or trade school.

The Iowa Golf Association Foundation (IGAF) was established to preserve the game and develop more programs to promote the future of golf in Iowa. The IGAF awards the Ann Griffel scholarship each year. This scholarship was named after the long time IWGA President, Ann Griffel, who during her 23 year term started the Girls’ State Junior, Forever 39, State Wife-Husband and Senior Women’s Championships.

Smith wins 58th Women’s Forever 39 Match Play title

Leanne Smith was crowned champion at the 58th Iowa Women’s Forever 39 Match Play Championship on Tuesday afternoon at Hillcrest Golf and Country Club in Adel. Smith (pictured above), of Indianola, defeated Laura Leszczynski, of St. Mary’s, 4&3 in the final round.

After winning the Forever 39 Match Play and the 2019-2020 IGA Women’s Match Play, it is official that Smith knows how to win match play events.

“I can be a little errant sometimes,” Smith said. “Giving up a big hole doesn’t really phase me in match play, you just lose the hole, you don’t fall behind in strokes. I know that I can go out and make birdies.”

In the stroke play qualifier, Smith carded a 1-under 35 and finished runner-up to medalist Fionna Watson. Smith earned the No. 2 seed in the Championship Flight bracket and faced off against Carole Schlapkohl in her first match.

“I had never played out there (at Hillcrest),” Smith said “I was trying to figure out where to be off the tee and just trying to figure out where I needed to be on the greens. It was nice to shoot a good number to set yourself up well in the matches.”

The stroke play qualifying helped Smith prepare for her matches and gave her a little boost of confidence going into them. She stuck to her game plan and won the Women’s Forever 39 Match Play in her first appearance in the event.

The No. 1 seed, Fiona Watson faced off against the No. 6 seeded Rosalie Kubesheski in the Consolation Match and won 4&3. Watson lost to Leszczynski, who won 2 up, in the second round and Kubesheski fell to Smith, 2&1.

In the First Flight bracket, the No. 5 seeded Margene Grady knocked off Sue Harmon, 2&1 in the final match. During Grady’s journey to the win, she had to take on three of the top four seeds, including the No. 1 seed in the second round, Noreen Christians.

In the Consolation Match for the First Flight bracket, Ann Slechta took down Christians, 2&1. Slechta, who was the No. 7 seed, fell to Sue Harmon in round two, 3&1.

The No. 7 seed, Jan Sewright, was victorious in the Second Flight bracket, defeating the No. 1 seed Nancy Olberding to win the bracket. Sewright did not have an easy path either, beating the No. 2 seed Donna Vroom and the No. 3 seed Carroll Dethrow in rounds one and two.

Dethrow defeated Lora Winter in the Consolation Match for the Second Flight. Winter fell to the No. 1 seed Nancy Olberding and her match with Dethrow came down to the final hole.

The Third Flight bracket featured the No. 6 seeded Ardrae Parmenter taking on the No. 5 seeded Nancy Lorenzini in the final round. Parmenter pulled off her third upset of the tournament, and won the match against Lorenzini, 2&1.

Cathy West lost the Consolation Match for the Third Flight bracket to Jane Suiter, 1UP through eight holes. West was defeated by Lorenzini in round two and Suiter fell to the bracket winner, Parmenter.

In the consolation brackets, Julie Buerman won the Championship Flight over Robin Webb, 3&1. Michelle Klein took down Leighann Larocca in the First Flight Consolation bracket. Kelly Nelson beat Susan Mitchell in the Second Flight bracket and Bonnie Jones defeated Becky Schwiete in the Third Flight bracket.
