Holmen's Bistodeau wins third Seniors County Am title

Mike Bistodeau is now a three-time winner of the Kwik Trip La Crosse County Seniors Amateur Golf Championship.
Bistodeau, from Holmen, posted a 1-under par 70 at historic Forest Hills Golf Course in La Crosse on Saturday to add another victory to his 2009 and 2012 titles.
"I putted so well today," he said moments after his victory. I must've made five or six putts from over 20 feet. The greens were running so smoothly."
Bistodeau (pictured) shot identical nines of 35-35 to nip four-time Seniors champ Paul Williamson by two strokes, Donald Colburn, making his first appearance in the Seniors County Am, finished third with 73.
Bistodeau, a longtime competitor in the 36-hole County Amateur Men's Championship next weekend, said he would like to add that first men's title to his resume, but admits, the competition will be stiff.
Those young kids hit the ball so far," he said, with a big smile. "It will be tough."
In other Seniors action, Herb Becker captured First Flight with 77, while Bob Schoen won Second Flight with 81. Bill Burke grabbed the Super Seniors title with a low gross 90 and low net 68.
