2013 Pepsi Gallatin Valley Open Golf Tournament Results

September, 2013 welcomed 100 golfers from across the Nation to Cottonwood Hills Golf Club in Bozeman, MT for the 19th Annual Pepsi Gallatin Valley Open presented by Culligan and Sun Mountain Sports. This prestigious golf tournament concluded this past weekend as 35 Professionals battled for a $12,000 purse while 65 of the Northwest's most notable amateurs vied for their piece of more than $9000 in prize money.

Thomas Buran, Dakota's Tour player from Victor, ID, was this year's GVO Champion firing a two day total of nine under par 135 with rounds of 67-68. Buran had his work cut out for him this year just besting Lance Rieber's eight under total of 136. Hailing from Meridian, ID, Rieber was one of four previous champions who returned to compete for the title. Tied for third place was the 2011 champion and Canadian Tour player Mike Grob of Billings, MT and Mike Rider from Manhattan, MT who both shot a six under par 138. Tied for fifth place was last year's defending champion Steve Schneiter from Sandy, UT and Andrew Von Lossow from Seattle, WA finishing at five under, 139.

On the Amateur side of the GVO the title of champion was determined after an exciting one hole playoff between the 2006 Low Amateur Champion Rick Hare of Montgomery, TX and Brady Kirkoby of Helena, MT. Kirkoby played brilliantly on the final front nine shooting a five under par 31 to post a second day round of 67, one of only four sub-par rounds for the amateur field on Sunday. Both contestants shot two day totals of two under par, 142. Third place for the entire amateur field went to Drew Vanyo with a 143; fourth was secured by Morgan Thompson of Manhattan, MT with a 145; and both Ron Garland of Bozeman, MT and Ross Bartell of Great Fall, MT tied for fifth with two day totals of 146.

Thanks to the community's outstanding support and all of the very generous sponsors, this year's Pepsi GVO along with Culligan Water Systems of Bozeman was able to make a $1600 donation to Eagle Mount and fundraise money to better promote and nurture junior golf in the beautiful Gallatin Valley.
