The Pine to Palm has a new Senior's medalist record after Bismarck's John Stromstad shattered the old mark with his six-under par 65.


And he credits his strong play to the shiny part of his golf ball.

Stromstad's 65 eclipsed Robert Wernick's three-over par 68, which he set in 1999, and it's all due to a little tip former University of Minnesota golfer and instructor Perry Andrisen gave him this summer.
