The Hos-King of the Hill
Max Hosking had a quick answer when asked what he was going to do with the $10,000 he won Wednesday for his victory in the Morgan Stanley Wisconsin State Open Championship.
“Play more golf,” answered the newly minted champ.
Hosking, a 27-year-old Madison native, persevered through a trying 36-hole finale Wednesday at venerable North Shore CC in Mequon. The wind presented a bit of a challenge for the final two rounds, but the slippery greens proved to be the toughest test. Players struggled on the putting surfaces all day long, alternately coming up several feet short on their putts and sending them long. Throughout the day both putts and greenside bunker shots often rolled out further than players planned and left them battling for par.
