ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) Naperville's Kyle Slechta is making a name for himself in the Stateline golf community. Slechta defeated Jamie Hogan on the second hole of a playoff to win his second straight Aldeen Cup on Sunday.
Saturday's heat proved to be a scorcher on the scorecards as well. Slechta was the only golfer to score even or better on the par 72 course. Hogan was the closest challenger at +2.
With the weather much more pleasant on Sunday, Hogan made up that ground to force a playoff with the defending champion.
Despite shooting two over in regulation on Sunday, Slechta beat Hogan to retain his Aldeen Cup. Like last year, Slechta will compete in the Rockford Men's City Championship the next two weekends.
