Doak, Peterson & Sergeant take home titles at Fort Dodge Amateur
Niel Doak (above left) and Ron Peterson (right in blue shirt) were sporting first-timer smiles after securing championships at the 70th Fort Dodge Amateur golf tournament here on Sunday.
And while Dave Sergeant may be an old hat at winning on his home Fort Dodge Country Club soil, the end of an eight-year drought in this event made the 73-year-old local attorney grin from ear-to-ear as well.
Doak earned the open division title by finishing at even-par 213, which was four strokes clear of defending champ Joe Urbanek and first-round leader Willis Gaer. Peterson prevailed in the senior standings by defeating Terry Cook and Dave Henry in a two-hole playoff, and Sergeant fought through iron trouble to come out on top in the super senior bracket.
