Anderson and Polk Winners at 35th MPGA Combination Championship

September 21, 2020

 
 HASTINGS, Minn. – Danny Anderson and Jesse Polk combined to post a 13-under 96 at Emerald Greens Golf Club Sunday to earn a three-stroke victory at the 35th Minnesota Public Golf Association Combination Championship.
 
Anderson and Polk combined to shoot 35 to open the championship in a Best Ball format before a blistering 28 in the scramble portion of the tournament to take the 18-hole lead. The two fired a 35 during the final nine holes, an alternate shot format, to claim victory over the twosome of Justin Burleson and Will Hickey.
 
Anderson, who claimed the Lakeland Invitational on his home course at Eagle Creek Golf Club in June, earns his second win at the championship, teaming up with Andy Jacobson to win the 2017 championship at Bunker Hills Golf Club. Anderson also paired up with Jacobson to win the 2017 MPGA Four-Ball Championship at Rum River Hills Golf Club.
 
Polk earns his first win at the championship Sunday and adds to his golf resume, which includes a pair of wins at the MPGA Four-Ball Championship with partner Sammy Schmitz, and a record-tying performance with Schmitz at the Minnesota Golf Association Amateur Four-Ball Championship to win the event in 2014 at Pebble Creek Golf Club.
 
Burleson and Hickey opened the championship by shooting 33 during the Best Ball format of the championship Sunday, then would combine to shoot 31 during the Scramble portion of the tournament. They finished the final nine holes with a 35 to earn a second-place finish at 10-under 99, three shots back.
