Sparta Wisconsin News – Father Son Duo Scott & Austin Erickson played at the 106th Pater-filius tournament held by the Wisconsin State Golf Association. Its a Father/Son tournament where each team plays as one player, so dad takes first shot, son takes second shot. Then it alternates after each hole. For a golfer it is one of the most difficult tournaments to participate in.
The team started off great, shooting 32 (-4) on the front. Then made a tough double bogey on 17 that put them at risk of falling out of the top spot but bounced back with a birdie on 18 to win by 1, to become the Champions.
Over 400 golfers competed, with over 100 father-son teams playing for the gross Championship. Congratulations to the Erickson’s for bringing home the Championship.
