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.
