Onalaska's Weber wears Ray Fischer crown

JANESVILLE, WI - Onalaska's Joe Weber capped off a great week off golf on Sunday.
Weber, two-time winner of the La Crosse County Amateur Golf Championships, won the annual Wisconsin Public Links Association Ray Fischer 72-hole Amateur Championship at the Janesville Riverside Country Club.
On Thursday, Weber finished runner-up to Chadd Slutzky of Deer Park, IL, in the Wisconsin State Golf Association Match Play Championship at Strawberry Creek in Kenosha, WI.
Matt Tolan of Eau Claire was heading to a wire-to-wire finish in the Ray Fischer Championship. However, Weber stopped him in a big way. A final-round 68 left the 36-year-old Weber at 19-under 267 for the tournament. And when Tolan’s 10-foot par putt on 18 didn't drop, Weber had surprisingly come from behind for perhaps the biggest victory of his amateur golf career. He also becomes the first La Crosse area player to win the event.
Weber, opened with rounds of 69, 68 and 64 before finishing with 68.
After rounds of 66, 67 and 64, Tolan faded to 73 his final 18 holes.
Tolan shared second place at 18 under with Fond du Lac’s Chris Colla and John Kryscio, from Lake Forest, IL, who each shot 67 in the final round.
Ben Skogen of Onalaska carded 70-73-68-74-285 to tie for 31st place. Skogen won the County Amateur titles the past two years.
Onalaska's James DeBoer, Jr., Sparta's Austin and Scott Erickson, and Jim Socha of Onalaska missed the 36-hole cut.
