Annual Krugel golf tournament begins Saturday

The Mankato Golf Club's 63rd annual Loren Krugel Invitational will be played Saturday and Sunday, with the usual cast of talented amateur golfers expected in the field.
Two-time defending champion Steve Chesley will be teeing it up in the 45-hole event, and crowd favorite J.B. Lloyd would surely like to add another Krugel title to his resume.
Past champion Jason Rudquist is also in the field.
Local players Geoff Klein, Toby Robinson, Alex Klehr and Josh Blackman certainly have a chance to win.
Former Minnesota State golfer Kyle Bahe had a great spring for the Mavericks, and he's entered in the Krugel. The University of Minnesota's Rob Bell is also in the field.
The Krugel is a great tournament, with flights for higher handicaps and older players, and it's one of the few events where each golfer plays his own ball, from tee to hole.
In the championship flight, you can expect the winning score to be under par, and the course is in beautiful shape. If you're not doing anything Sunday afternoon, stop by the Mankato Golf Club to watch the finish.
