Trent Peterson defeated Jamie Quesnel 5 and 4 to win his second MGA Mid-Players' Championship in three years on Wednesday at Crow River Golf Club in Hutchinson, Minn.
"Five rounds in three days is a lot of golf and I hit it well and putted well every day," Peterson said after the 20th amateur victory in his career. Peterson, of Valleywood Golf Course, has won at least one tournament every year since 2013.
•Jim Lehman beat Tom Whaley 3 and 2 for the MGA Senior Players' Championship at Crow River GC. "In today's match I made five birdies and that was a big deal," said Lehman, of Windsong Farm. "… I'm proud to say this is my second win of the year — hopefully this will be a great year for me."
