(August 9, 2020 4:22 PM) Jackson area golfer Joey Badall must have felt like he was in a “Caddyshack” flashback Sunday during the final round of the Jackson Masters Golf Tournament.

This relatively unknown golfer from Jackson, Michigan, was about to win the Masters.

Only this was the Jackson Masters, not the one in Augusta, Ga.

Badall – who does not play in many Jackson area golf tournaments due to work and time constraints – made a 10-foot birdie putt on the first extra hole.  He defeated Dave Page for the Jackson Masters Golf Tournament title on Sunday at The Grande Golf Club.

It is the first major title for Badall.

Badall and Page finished the 36-hole medal-play tournament with 1-under-par 143 totals. Badall led after day one with a 70, but shot a 1-over-par 73 on Sunday.

Page shot 73 on Saturday, but followed that up with a 70 on Sunday.

Cannon Risner finished third overall with a two-day total of 144. The Leslie High School senior shot the best round of the tournament with a 3-under-par 69. Mark Kurzynowski finished fourth with a 145; Scott Denig placed fifth at 146; and Justin Bunch and Tim Pickering tied for seventh at 147.

Badall is a member at The Grande, playing a lot of early morning rounds before his family wakes up.

He birdied 15 to pull even with Page, but a birdie-bogey swing on 17 favored Page by two strokes heading into the final hole.

Badall returned the favor with a 15-foot birdie putt for another two-shot swing – sending the 36-hole tournament into a playoff.

“I just kept telling myself on 18 tee that I have to keep grinding,” Badall said. “I have put in the time and the practice so nothing is over until the last putt.”

On the first playoff hole – No. 1, a 401-yard par four – Badall got all of his drive, placing it within 100 yards of the green. Page hit his second shot 25 feet from the pin and Badall stuck his shot within 10 feet.

When Page missed his birdie opportunity, Badall made the key putt for the win. 

“I am in shock right now,” Badall said after the round. “There are so many more guys out there who are better than me.

“For some reason, the cards were all in my favor this weekend.”
