Mt. Lake Area golfer Aaron Walzak has played in the high school state tournament for the past three seasons.

But beginning next week, Walzak will face a different challenge.

For the second straight year, Walzak has qualified to take part in the Minnesota Junior, PGA Match Play Tournament, which will be held July 30-31 at Dakota Ridge near Morton.

Walzak qualified for the match play tournament by finishing in the top 32 at a qualifying tournament last week, played in Woodbury. Walzak shot a 76 to finish in the top third of the qualifying field.

“I was hitting the ball really well during the tournament,” Walzak said. “I’ve been hitting it better since the end of the state tournament. If you hit a tough stretch, you just have to keep working at it by getting out to the course and playing your way through it.”

This marks the second straight year Walzak qualified for the match play tournament. He noted that he likes the different challenge that match play presents.
