Swedberg Fires Second Round 66 to Capture Assistants’ Championship

September 21, 2016

Brady Swedberg of Geneva GC shot a second round 4-under 66 to win the 2016 National Car Rental Minnesota PGA Assistants’ Championship at Oak Ridge Country Club in Hopkins, Minn. This was a one day, 36-hole event.

Swedberg was positioned in third place after he turned in an even par 70 through his first 18 holes. He trailed Derek Holmes of Dellwood CC and Tommy Koehler of Woodhill CC by three and two shots, respectively.

“I was just trying to hang in there this morning,” he emphasized. “Made a few birdies but nothing special for the most part. I couldn’t quite get in a groove.”

It didn’t take long for Swedberg to find that groove in the second round. He birdied the par-4 2nd, par-5 5th and par-3 7th on his way to a 3-under, bogey-free front nine.

“I made some adjustments after the first round,” said Swedberg. “I worked on my ball positioning on the range to fix my driver. When my driver is going good, that is usually an indicator of how I’m playing.”

Outside of a couple hiccups on the par-3 11th and par-4 15th, Swedberg was very sharp turning in a 1-under 34 on the back to complete his 4-under 66. His performance was good enough for a five shot victory with Eric Rolland of Woodhill CC finishing in second place.

Swedberg along with Rolland, Holmes and Koehler have qualified for the 40th PGA Assistant Championship at PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, FL on Oct. 27-30, 2016.
