2022-06-12: Jacobson claims 60th annual Grey Owl

WASAGAMING — Brandon’s Jared Jacobson birdied the last three holes on Sunday to capture the 60th annual Grey Owl golf tournament, presented by IG Wealth Management, in thrilling fashion.

Jacobson, who plays a lot of his golf at Clear Lake Golf Course, looked right at home as he rolled in a 12-foot birdie putt on 18 to fire a 2-under-par 70. Wheat City Golf Course’s Ross Sheard missed a four-foot putt on 18 that would have forced a playoff.

Jacobson’s 1-under total of 141 was good enough for his second Grey Owl championship. He also won in 2014.

Sheard had a two-shot lead on first-round leader Noel Ngo and a four-shot edge on Jacobson standing on the 16th tee, but he bogeyed the short par 4 while Ngo and Jacobson birdied. Jacobson then pulled within one of Sheard when he rolled in a 12-footer on the par-3 17th for birdie. Sheard parred and Ngo bogeyed, so Sheard had a one-shot edge on both of them going into the final hole.

Jacobson, 42, hit a gap wedge to 12 feet, while Sheard put his approach shot on the front left portion of the green, about 30 feet away. Sheard’s putt rolled about four feet past the hole, and then Jacobson stepped up and rolled his putt in for his third straight birdie. Sheard could have forced extra holes, but his four-footer slid just past the right edge.

Sheard (71-71—142) and Ngo (70-72—142) tied for second, while defending champion Jay Thiesen of Russel (72-77—149) and Shilo’s Nolan Tutkaluk (75-74—149) tied for fourth.

Tim Lynch of Williston, N.D. (79-72—151) won the Greyer Owl title for those age 60 and over.

Stephen Johnston of QX104 and 94.3 The Drive won his fifth Media Flight title with scores of 87 and 81 for a 168 total.

The Grey Owl was played for the first time since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and 261 golfers participated.

2022-06-11 Ngo grabs lead at 60th annual Grey Owl

WASAGAMING — Pine Ridge Golf Club’s Noel Ngo will sleep on the lead before Sunday’s final round at the 60th annual Grey Owl, presented by IG Wealth Management.

Ngo (pronounced nuh-GO) took advantage of pristine weather conditions on Saturday and fired a 2-under-par 70 at picturesque Clear Lake Golf Course. He has a one-shot lead over three golfers after going 3 under on the front and 1 over on the inward nine.

Two of the three players one shot back have already captured the Cactus Jack Wells Memorial Trophy. Brandon’s Jared Jacobson, who snared the 2014 title, and Brandon’s Murray Lindenberg, who claimed the title all the way back in 1978, both fired 1-under-par 71s on Friday. Wheat City Golf Course’s Ross Sheard joined those two when he carded a 71 on Saturday.

The Grey Owl is being played for the first time since 2019 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and 261 golfers are in this year’s field.

Defending champion Jay Thiesen (pronounced TEE-sun) of Russell is two shots back of the lead after carding an even-par 72 on Saturday. Marcus Friess of Estevan, Sask., also shot a 72 on Saturday.

Fourteen players qualified for the championship flight by shooting 75 or better.

Lindenberg has the lead in the Greyer Owl division, which is for those age 60 and over.

Stephen Johnston of QX104 and 94.3 The Drive has the score to beat in the Media Flight after shooting 87 on Friday and 81 on Saturday to complete his two rounds.

The tournament consists of 36 holes over three days.
