The championship division came down to a five-way playoff for the top three spots. ,Buck Herman, Clarence Davis, Paul Frydenlund, Tony Good and Cal Anderson finished the 18-hole event with an 83. That's 11 over par and Herman said that after a tough stretch, he had all but given up. Anderson, who played in the same group with Frydenlund and Good, said the trio, along with their other two playing partners were lav- ing "longest drive contests" toward the end of the round because they were certain their opportunities to win had long since passed.

The trust they developed with each other on the floor was a special thing to watch. The North Dakota contingent, dubbed the "Frozen Chosen," went a perfect 4-0 in tournament play.
