Johnson’s amateur victory; Herperger helps Humboldt heal

Kade Johnson won the 107th Men's Amateur Championship in July.

The 2018 Saskatchewan Amateur and Mid-Amateur Championships didn’t start great for Yorkton’s Kade Johnson or Humboldt’s Mike Herperger but the end results were what mattered.

Johnson shot an opening round of 75 during day one of the event at the Dakota Dunes Golf Links before shooting back-to-back rounds of 66 on route to the men’s amateur title.

Herperger also shot 66 in the final round to climb all the way to second overall and the mid-am title on the final day. A win he dedicated to his hometown of Humboldt and Marilyn Hay, the mother of Tyler Bieber and a longtime family friend. Bieber passed away in the Broncos’ bus crash in April.

Johnson’s torrid run and Herperger’s emotional day is our second most popular story of the season.
