The tournament title that eluded Jason Zahradka is finally his.

Zahradka, the 12-time winner of the New Richmond Golf Club men's championship, has never been able to win the 2013 NRGC Labor Day Invitational. Until this year, that is. Zahradka won four of the first 10 holes to beat Justin Burleson in the Labor Day tournament championship match.

In the senior division of the tournament, Gary Huber defeated Dan Wubbels in the championship match.

This is the third time Zahradka has reached the championship match for the Labor Day tournament. He quickly took charge, winning the fourth and fifth holes. He added wins on the ninth and 10 holes. He ended the match six holes up with four left to play.
