Club Walden GolfA pair of super-big winners were the story of the 2017 edition of the Walden Challenge. The annual fall event features two-man amateur teams playing nine holes of scramble on the front nine and nine holes of better ball on the back at Club Walden in Aurora.

The fast conditions and tough hole locations at Walden kept the scores high for all but one team: AJ Borisa and Steve Blackburn Jr.. They flat-out lapped the field with a five shot overall victory. They posted a 7-under par 29 in the scramble format. Their back nine score of 1-under par 35 tied for the lead in that format as well. All in, their 8-under par 64 performance earned them a hefty $1,166 total.

But as surprising as it may seem, that haul was topped by John Zitkovic and Mike Davis. Davis and Zitkovic won the only skin of the day with an eagle-3 on the par-5 third hole. With their T2 finish overall at 69, a 2nd in the scramble format with a strong front nine 30, and the lone skin winner, they nabbed a whopping $1,580.

A big thank you to Larry Lahnan and Fred Miller for hosting yet another great Walden Challenge…
