Ludwig controls the City Championship.......Zach is the Champion Golfer of the Year...Bill Franey Open!

 Kyler Ludwig took control of the Carroll City Championship on Saturday shooting a 7 under par 64 at the Carroll Muny. His control continued through Sunday where he held off an always tough Scott Quandt to win his 2nd city championship. Quandt's double bogey 6 on the par four sixth hole proved costly down the stretch.
