Jim and Donna Turner of Brackett’s Crossing won the Husband/Wife Division in the MGA’s 17th Mixed Team Championship for the second year in a row Thursday at Forest Hills Golf Club in Forest Lake. Their 70-67-137 was six shots better than the runner-up team of Dave and Claudia Pilot.
In the Mixed Team Division, Mark Aldrich and his sister Betsy Aldrich shot a 69 Thursday to finish the regulation portion of the competition in a three-way tie for first place at 134. They won a playoff with a birdie on the third extra hole.
Ross Hammann and Olivia Lansing followed an opening round of 66 with a 68 for their 134. This was the second time in nine days that Lansing has nearly won an MGA crown. She combined with Chelsea Gannon to take second place in the Minnesota Women’s Four-Ball Championship last week.
Finishing third were John Anderson and Hillary Gerster of Bunker Hills (68-66-134).
Full results can be found on the MGA website.
