Ray Pedersen Memorial golf tournament
May 16, 2019
Ken Madsen looks for his golf ball, after knocking it into a ditch, at last weekend's Ray Pedersen Memorial Ryder Cup. The tournament, memorializing Ray Pedersen, brings together the towns of Wrangell and Petersburg for a weekend of golfing. Petersburg won the match 22 to 13.
Wrangell and Petersburg came together for Muskeg Meadow's annual Ray Pedersen Memorial Ryder Cup last Saturday and Sunday. The two communities have been going back-and-forth on winning this tournament for several years. In 2015, the two towns tied in the tournament. The win went to Petersburg in a chip-off. Wrangell won the tournament the next year in 2016, and then Petersburg in 2017. Wrangell won last year too. This year, Petersburg continued the pattern with a match win of 22 to 13.
Next weekend will be another 9-hole best ball tournament.
