Dan Cavanagh wins PLGC Club Championship

Perham Lakeside Golf Club crowned their season champion this week as Dan Cavanagh, in incoming senior at Perham High School, carded a 106 over 27 holes to take the Club Championship.

Cavanagh is a 4-time Minnesota State Golf Tournamnet qualifier. This past June, a rough front-9 took him out of title contention on the 2nd day of the Class AA State Golf Tournament at Ridges at Sand Creek in Jordan. Cavanagh shot a 71 (34-37) on the 1st day to finish the 1st 18 holes in 2nd place, 1-stroke behind the leader.  But Cavanagh shot a 44 on the front-9 in the 2nd round, and finished with an 83, giving him a 2-day total of 154 to put him in a tie for 28th place.

He finished in a tie for 11th at State in 2010 with a 74 (36-38).  The State Tournament was cut to 1-day last year due to weather.  As a freshman in 2009, Cavanagh finished 49th with a 163 (82-81).  As an 8th grader in 2008, he shot a 181 (91-90) to finish 80th.

Second place in the Championship Flight went to Kim Anderson with a 111.  Bob Cavanagh was 3rd with a 112, and Jason Huus was 4th with a 113.

Bob Odendahl won the Senior Championship Flight with an 81 over 18 holes, and Diane Buckhouse won the Women’s Championship with a 94.

Former Olympic hero joins golfers at Tuffy Nelson Golf Classic

Golfers couldn’t have asked for a better day at Perham Lakeside Gold Club last Friday at the 27th Annual Tuffy Nelson Golf Classic.  More than 200 golfers hit the course for a 4-person team playing 2-out of-4 Best Ball with Net and Gross Divisions.

“Well, we probably couldn’t have asked for a better day,” said Kenny Nelson, Tuffy’s son and the man in charge of KLN Enterprises.  “Nick and the folks here at Lakeside put on a great tournament and I hope all the golfers enjoyed their day.”

Kenny was one of many to enjoy the day, as he shoot an even-par 72 on the Maple and Oak courses at PLGC.  That wasn’t quite good enough for low score of the day.  That went to Bryce Mattson, who shot a 68.  Tom Thompson was runner-up with a 70, followed by Curt Nyhus and Adam Dooley who both shot 71’s.

Thompson and Nyhus teamed with Corey Nyhus, and Craig Nyhus to take the top team honors with a score of 131.

The Net Division Champion was Chris DeConcini who had a score of 64, one better than Ken Rosen (65).  The Net Team champs were Brian Steinwagner, Fred Becker, Brett Steinwagner, Bob Popowski, who had a score of 116.

One of the recognizable names to enjoy the course Friday was gold medal Olympian Phil Verchota.

“I’ve been coming back for 10 years now,” Verchota said of his participation in the Tuffy’s Classic.  “I’ve gotten to know the course through some banking functions over the years and I’ve known Kenny a while.”

Verchota attended Duluth East High School where he also was a star defensive tackle in gridiron football and recruited for both football and hockey at the University of Minnesota. However, he chose not to play on the football team and devoted all attention on playing hockey for the Minnesota Gophers. Verchota was a member of the 1976 and 1979 NCAA championship teams coached by Herb Brooks.  He finished his Gopher career with 51 goals and 58 assists in 119 games.

Verchota made his international debut at the 1979 Ice Hockey World Championship in Moscow after his college career had ended. He then joined the U.S. Olympic team on a full time basis for the 1979-80 season.

In 61 games for the U.S. team leading up to the 1980 Olympics, Verchota scored 19 goals and dished out 24 assists.  His biggest goal came in the Gold Medal game against Finland, where he scored the game tying goal to make the score 2-2.  The U.S. team went on to win, 4-2 to complete the “Miracle on Ice”.

After the Olympics, Verchota opted to play overseas with Jokerit in Finland rather than sign a contract with the Minnesota North Stars, who had drafted him 75th overall in the 1976 NHL Entry Draft (he also turned down an offer from the North Stars in 1977 to leave U. of Minnesota early). Verchota also played for the U.S. national team at the 1981 ice hockey world championship tournament in Stockholm before taking a one year sabbatical from hockey. He rejoined the U.S. national team as a full time player in 1982/83 and helped the United States win the ice hockey world championship "Pool B" qualifying tournament in the spring of 1983. He continued with the US national program until the 1984 Winter Olympics in Sarajevo, and retired from hockey afterwards.

Verchota was named one of the 50 greatest players in University of Minnesota hockey history as part of "Legends on Ice" tribute in 2001.

“You get to make a few friends and know some business people, and know you’ll have a good time,” Verchota added about coming back to the Tuffy’s Classic year after year.  “And it’s for a good cause.”

Traditionally, the proceeds of the tournament (after pay-outs to the golfers) go to various cancer organizations and to the beautification of PLGC.

“This tournament is a great way to highlight the legacy my dad established,” Kenny said.  “He was a great man who did great things, and it’s a pleasure to honor his memory at this tournament each year.”

Darrell Douglas “Tuffy”Nelson was born in Aldrich and graduated from Staples High School in 1938.  He went to work for Cass Clay Creamery in 1941 before moving to Cokato in 1944 to run a small feed mill.  In 1947, with wife Muggy and his five children (Kenny, Patty, Greg, Debbie and Lisa) in tow, Tuffy moved to Perham and started the Pine Lakes Feed and Hatchery. 

In 1964, Tuffy and son Kenny started Tuffy’s Pet Foods.  They sold the business in 1971, but Kenny purchased the company back in 2001.  Meanwhile, KLN Enterprises got Barrel O’ Fun and Kenny’s Candies rolling. 

Tuffy had a very active in life in Perham.  He was instrumental in the building of a new hospital and putting lights up at the baseball field.  He helped build Perham Lakeside, he was an active fireman and served on the school board for one-term.

Tuffy was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in 1985, and the tournament was started as a fundraiser for the Roger Maris Cancer Center in Fargo.  Tuffy passed away on March 7, 1986, but on August 4 of that year, the 2nd Annual Classic took place and a tradition was born.

Since then, the field has gotten bigger and better each year, as has the KLN family of companies. The expansions KLN has undertaken in recent years has expanded the workforce to more than 1,000 people company-wide.

27th Annual Tuffy Nelson Golf Classic Aug. 5 at PLGC

The 27th Annual Tuffy Nelson Golf Classic will be held Friday, Aug. 5 at Perham Lkeside Golf Club.  There will be an 8 a.m. and a 1 p.m. shotgun start.

The format is a 4-person team playing 2-out of-4 Best Ball with Net and Gross Divisions. 

There is a $150 entry fee per player, which includes golf, cart, a golf shirt, breakfast or lunch, dinner and prizes.

“This tournament is a great way to highlight the legacy my dad established,” Kenny said.  “He was a great man who did great things, and it’s a pleasure to honor his memory at this tournament each year.”

Darrell Douglas “Tuffy”Nelson was born in Aldrich and graduated from Staples High School in 1938.  He went to work for Cass Clay Creamery in 1941 before moving to Cokato in 1944 to run a small feed mill.  In 1947, with wife Muggy and his five children (Kenny, Patty, Greg, Debbie and Lisa) in tow, Tuffy moved to Perham and started the Pine Lakes Feed and Hatchery. 

In 1964, Tuffy and son Kenny started Tuffy’s Pet Foods.  They sold the business in 1971, but Kenny purchased the company back in 2001.  Meanwhile, KLN Enterprises got Barrel O’ Fun and Kenny’s Candies rolling. 

Tuffy had a very active in life in Perham.  He was instrumental in the building of a new hospital and putting lights up at the baseball field.  He helped build Perham Lakeside, he was an active fireman and served on the school board for one-term.

“Dad was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in 1985,” Kenny said.  “We started the first outing as a fundraiser for the Roger Maris Cancer Center in Fargo.”

Tuffy passed away on March 7, 1986, but on August 4 of that year, the 2nd Annual Classic took place and a tradition was born.

Since then, the field has gotten bigger and better each year, as has the KLN family of companies.

“The development of KLN is a direct reflection on the vision my dad had,” Kenny continued.  “He was such a hard worker and very sharp for someone who barely graduated high school.  He loved life and lived it to the fullest.  Hunting, fishing, golf.  He worked hard and played hard.  This tournament is for friends, family and to the great people we have here at KLN.  We are where we are because of the hard work of everyone here, and this is one way to help celebrate that.  We’ve been so blessed with what we’ve been able to accomplish.”

What they have been able to accomplish at KLN is obvious to everyone in Perham.

Kenny said that the success of KLN Enterprises has bucked the trend of the recession because they products they put out are recession proof.  Snack foods, candy and dog food.

“People are always going to feed their dog,” he said with his magic smile.  “But it’s about more than that.  We have good people and put out good products.”

The expansions KLN has undertaken in recent years has expanded the workforce to more than 1,000 people company-wide.

“We’ve been blessed.  Truly blessed.  And Iknow when Tuffy looks down he’d be proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish.”
