[Willmar, MN]— In a picture perfect golf weekend, Danny Anderson earned the top spot in the annual Lakeland Championship at Eagle Creek Golf Club this weekend. 

Anderson came out on top of the four-horse race, finishing the two-day, 54-hole tournament at nine-under par (66-34, 74-33, 207), and making him a first time tournament winner. 

With the win, Anderson was able to triumph over some well renowned area golfers, including defending tournament champ Pete Hannig and 9 time tournament champion Andy Jacobson, who was flirting with the first place spot at multiple points throughout the weekend. 

Rounding out the leading group in the first flight, Matt Gorans finished in second place at eight-under par (208), former FGCU and MACCRAY golfer Brady Madsen in third at seven-under par (209), and Andy Jacobson in fourth at six-under par (210). 

Anderson was able to shoot par or better on 8 of the last 9 holes, and taking advantage of crucial late bogeys from Jacobson, Gorans and Madsen gave him the boost he needed to stave off a late push from Madsen and maintain that two stroke gap. 

In the senior division, in a pool of 11 total golfers, Howie Swift walked away with the win, after shooting a +15 159.
