Cowan, Kaiser team to win All Alaskan Skins Game

Zac Cowan, co-owner of Birch Ridge Golf Course, and Brandon Kaiser won $1,700 of the $2,000 pot to win the 2020 All Alaskan Skins Game on July 13 at Birch Ridge Golf Course just outside of Soldotna.

The skins game is part of the 2020 State Farm Pro Am and Skins Game. In the skins game, three two-player teams played alternate shot for nine holes. The teams were Cowan and Kaiser, George Collum and Bill Engberg, and Chris Wright and Derek O’Neill.

In a skins game, the team that posts the lowest score on a hole wins the money for that hole. If there is a tie for the lowest score on the hole, the money is pushed to the next hole.

After No. 1 was a push, Wright and O’Neill won Nos. 2 and 3 to collect a total of $300. Cowan and Kaiser then won No. 4, followed by ties at Nos. 5, 6 and 7. By the time Cowan and Kaiser won Nos. 8 and 9, they had collected $1,700.

The pro am had 12 teams — six teams of all amateurs and one team of a pro and an amateur.

The top two slots went to teams of all amateurs.

Amateur Greg Sanders, of Anchorage, led his team of Jake Eubank, Cliff Copus and Fred Zumbuhl to first place, while amateur Nolan Rose led his team of Andy Gray, Mike Hollingsworth and Jakob Brown to second place. Cowan and his team of Pat Cowan, Eddie Sibolboro and Teresa Sibolboro took third place.

The pro am also featured individual competition. Sanders was the low amateur at 67, while Rose was second with 72 and Eubank was third with 75.

In the battle for low net, Shane Sundberg, Darell Jelsma and Copus tied at 69. In a card-off, Sundberg took first place, while Jelsma was second and Copus was third.

For the pros, Collum took first place with a 76, while Kaiser was second at 77 and O’Neill of Palmer was third at 78.
