Perry Piatz found out that steady and consistency can win one championships.

Piatz’ par-like golf game earned him the Pine to Palm Golf Tournament’s Mid-Am division, after his 5 and 3 victory over Fargo’s Jay Olafson, who has won two titles in the past four years.


“I just wanted to hit fairways and greens and went for pars,” Piatz said. “That’s my goal when playing, making pars. If I carded 18 pars in a round, I think I would win a lot of matches.”
