GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- The second stop of the 2014 Champions Golf Tour took place on June 16 at Oxbow Golf and Country Club in Fargo/Oxbow, N.D. A little rain to start the day turned into beautiful weather for all 27 five-person teams.

Thank you to our local committee members for helping to put together a great tournament: Clint Nelson ‘71, Lew Wilson ‘74, Frank Pearson ‘67, Peter Stenehjem ‘07, Richard Walstad ‘61, Duane Breitling ’62, Chris Kennelly ‘94.
