After Danny Klughart won the Conexus Men’s Lobstick in 2013, his return to the winner’s circle was a long and winding one.

In 2014, Klughart had a 3-hole lead with three holes to play and lost in a playoff in the semifinals. Klughart then had to withdraw in 2015 due to some ‘health issues’.

But those struggles make holding that Lobstick trophy once again even sweeter. On Saturday, Klughart beat Saskatoon’s Liam Courtney in 14 holes to be declared the 2017 Lobstick victor.

“It feels pretty good to come back,” Klughart said. “I guess it’s just being hungry. I’ve been close in lots of tournaments in the last couple years. I want to win. Coming back here, trying my best. I put together a game plan that helps me feel like I can win every week.”

Here are how all the finals played out in each flight.
