Golf: Sundbom defends Agate City title
Duluth Minnesota 424 W. First St. 55802

Defending champion Taylor Sundbom shot even par over 27 holes on Sunday to win the Agate City Classic at Lakeview National Golf Course in Two Harbors.

Sundbom, a former Minnesota state champion with Hermantown High School, finished with a two-day, 45-hole total of four-under 176 to win by six shots over Alex Kolquist, another former Hawk, who carded a 182.

Sundbom started the day a shot behind Saturday’s medalist, Jeff Sundin, who finished tied for third with Casey Salakka at 183 on a windy day that was harder for scoring. Sundom started the final day with three birdies and a bogey to card a 34 to take the lead, similar to the charge he made in winning last year. He kept it going from there, starting the next nine with a pair of birdies to take control.
