GROVE CITY, Ohio — Former Ohio State quarterback Craig Krenzel claimed his second Wall to Wall Celebrity Shootout championship, beating Fredrik Modin of the Columbus Blue Jackets by three strokes at Pinnacle Golf Club.
Krenzel, who previously won the event in 2005, became the first two-time Wall to Wall Celebrity Shootout Champion.
"It's a great course," Krenzel said. "Pinnacle is very challenging. It has a lot of length and there are some areas where you can get into some trouble as we saw in the last couple holes. It's a lot of fun to play."
Modin, who struggled early in the tournament, turned things around after completing the third hole and established himself as a player to beat. Despite steady play, he was unable to overcome Krenzel's lead.
"I really had some troubles getting off the tee," Modin said. "I couldn't really keep it in the fairway and the rough killed me."
