Matt Soreide beat Trevor Kulseth by just one stroke to claim the Championship flight of the Sweetwater Open golf tournament Sunday.
In spite of a one-hour delay in the tournament because of lightning from a nearby severe thunderstorm, Soreide was able to hold off Kulseth with a 77-stroke total for 18 holes. Kulseth finished with a total of 78, just one stroke less than Andrew Bagley, who placed third in the championship round.
After nine holes, Soveide had a one-stroke lead (36 to 37).
Karsen Kulseth won the first flight with a total of 76 strokes, the best score of the tournament. Kevin Bagley was second with a total of 84 strokes, barely beating out Mike Emch who finished with 85 strokes for the 18 holes.
In the second flight, it was Butch Cox winning with a score of 90, while Ken Steiner finished second with 92 and Deidre Mack was seven strokes back with a total of 99.
