GOLDEN VALLEY — Willmar’s Andy Jacobson is tied for seventh, four shots off the lead, after the first 18 holes Monday of the 111th Minnesota Golf Association Amateur Championships at the Golden Valley Golf & Country Club.

Jacobson, playing out of Eagle Creek Golf Course, shot an even-par 72, carding nine-hole scores of 37 and 35.

He is tied with four others behind leader Erik Christopherson, who shot a four-under 68. Three others are tied at three-under par.

Jacobson shot a one-under 215 and tied for third in last year’s MGA Amateur Championships.

Litchfield’s Tyler Koivisto shot a four-over 76 on Monday and is tied for 46th.

The 156 golfers play another 18-hole round today, and the field then is cut to 60 players for Wednesday’s final 18 holes.
