FRIDAY WRAP-UP: Rain doesn't dampen action at Resorters
Although rain delayed the start of Friday's Resorters Golf Tournament, it didn't slow down the action.
There was plenty to talk about after match play finally concluded for the day.
There was a 24-hole battle in the Executive Men's Division that sent home the medalist. Chad Johnson was the winner.
A 22-hole marathon highlighted the Championship Men's Division. Former Alexandrian Jack Dressen came out on top in that one.
Another former champion was eliminated - Betsy Aldrich in the Women's Division.
Three of last year's champions are still in contention: Peter Glanville (Senior Men's), Jon Empanger (2008 Executive titlist who is now competing in the Senior Men's) and Ron Clayton (Masters).
Champions will be determined in all six divisions Saturday afternoon.
