Huseman wins third career Fort Dodge Amateur title, Davis & Madsen claim victory
Thanks to pristine play through the first 36 holes of the 74th annual Fort Dodge Amateur golf tournament, Andrew Huseman (right) found himself in a peculiar position for the event’s first-ever championship round on Sunday evening.
Leading by an almost-unfathomable 10 strokes, the ink was ostensibly drying on Huseman’s third title since 2019 in the Open division. Yet the grandson of Fort Dodge Senior High Hall of Fame icon Dutch Huseman and son of long-time Fort Dodge chiropractor Bill Huseman didn’t treat the final nine holes as a victory lap.
There was still a title to officially seal.
The Ankeny Centennial graduate kept his nose to the grindstone and did what he needed down the stretch, sealing a seven-shot win over Willis Gaer of Des Moines. Meanwhile, Sean Davis of Council Bluffs (Senior) and Carroll’s Jim Madsen (Super Senior) broke through with inaugural victories at the Fort Dodge Country Club.
