Medicine Hat golfer Glen Erickson is the Senior Men’s Lobstick champion for the second time.

Erickson outlasted Weyburn’s Rick Hallberg in a four-hole playoff to claim the prestigious tournament, adding to his win in 2018.

He was sitting in third place going into the final round however the Saskatoon-born Erickson shot the week’s low round of 69 to force a playoff. Repeating the first hole over and over a bogey on the fourth try sealed the win.

Erickson spoke to Golf Saskatchewan about returning to Waskesiu, the win, and playing in a loaded championship flight during the 54-hole championship.

36-hole leader Doug Kozak finished third, Cliff Selander was fourth, while Brad Phelps and Mark Albert rounded out the top-five tying at 226.

Rick Yano was the super-senior winner.
