Another Krugel victory for Chesley

Mankato native Steve Chesley won his second consecutive championship at the 62 annual Loren Krugel Invitational tournament, which wrapped up Sunday at the Mankato Golf Club.
Chesley has a championship resume, having won the state tournament as a senior at Mankato West in 1986. He then went to the University of Minnesota, where swing changes forced upon him caused great frustration.
After basically taking about nine years off from the game, he started showing up at Minnesota Golf Association events again recently, and he posted a one-stroke victory at the 2009 Krugel.
He was tested Sunday, as first Geoff Klein kept pace for most of the final 18 holes, and Jeff Barney had birdie opportunities on the last three holes that could have tied things.
However, Chesley prevailed again by one stroke.
