The tale of the week windy, cloudy, with bursts of rain.
That doesn't stop the golfers in Montana.
On a course termed "extremely windy, cloudy with rain showers," the Taco John's Youth Golf Tour boasted four top finishers from Havre.
Nick Obie, in the boys' 15-17-year-old division, placed first with a 72. It was the lowest score of the tournament, held at the Chinook Golf Course on Thursday.
Jason Johnstone, a teammate on the Havre Blue Pony golf team, fired a 77 and placed second in the same division.
Jessica Sande of Havre fired a 99 and placed first in the girls' 15-17-year-old division.
