MPSTMA members from the Twin Cities played golf matches against Iowa sports turf managers on Friday, July 21 at North Links Golf Course in North Mankato
for the Chapter Clash trophy. Iowa won three matches to Minnesota's two in a 2-person scramble, match-play format. In a deciding match, Tim Van Loo, CSFM,
current President of the Sports Turf Managers Association, and his playing partner Randy Robinson, defeated Mike McDonald, CSFM, MPSTMA Chapter Clash
Chairman, and Jeff Turtinen, Executive Secretary of MPSTMA, 3 & 2. The match was even going into ninth hole when Van Loo chipped in for birdie and a 1-up lead.
Two holes later, the Minnesota duo inexplicably three putted to go 2-down and never got closer.

Chapter Clash hosts Bruce Leivermann and Seth Langager, made the local arrangements with the golf course and provided an after-golf dinner at Minnesota State
University site of the Minnesota Vikings training camp in Mankato.
