Kalil, Larsen win Island golf titles
The final holes of the 28th Kodiak Island Golf Championship were so anticlimatic that champion Rick Kalil had plenty of time to think about things other than golf. “All I was thinking when I was on the eighth hole was that I was hungry,” he said. Kalil dominated the first 27 holes of the two-day tournament by so much that Sunday’s last nine holes turned into a two-hour victory lap around a sun-soaked Bear Valley G...
