Impressive it was.
Cedar Falls’ Betsy & Ryan Ratchford (pictured above), following an opening round 78 (+6), got it going in a big way in their final round of the 60th Iowa Wife-Husband Championship at Sunnyside Country Club in Waterloo.
The Cedar Falls couple fired a sizzling 68 (-4), that included five birdies, to win by five shots over Stephanie & Alan Johnson and Julianna & Reed Burkholder who both shot 151 (+7) for the championship.
Cooler temperatures and blustery wind conditions at times made scoring difficult for many participants in the field.
In the Super Senior Division Becki & Mike Wetter (pictured right) of Mason City claimed a two-shot victory over Joyce and Scott Hornstein, of Huxley. The Wetter’s posted consistent rounds of 84-81 – 165 (+21) to take home the title. Jeanette & Raymond Fredericksen finished in third place, just four shots off the pace at 169 (+25).
