Locals Derek Bayley and Eric Ansett were in with some “heavy hitters” in the Western North Dakota Pro-Am at the Vardon Golf Club in Minot, N.D., during the weekend.
Bayley, from Rathdrum, shot a 23-under 265 for 54 holes, finishing with an 8-under 64 Sunday, to finish third, three strokes back of the winner. Ansett, formerly from Spokane now playing out of Nashville, Tennessee, was 17-under 271 after opening with a 65 to finish 12th. Each had four eagles during the four-day tournament.
• Bayley finished fifth in the one-day Dakotas Tour Siouxland Federal Credit Union Pro-Am on Aug. 10 at Dakota Dunes, South Dakota, shooting a 1-under 71, a week after he missed the cut at the South Dakota Open in Vermillion.
