Putting along at Grand Lake Saint Marys

Teams were boarding their pontoons and stopping along Grand Lake Saint Marys for this year's Barstool Open.

This is the 17th year that the Lake Improvement Association has put on the event, which takes teams to different locations around the lake to play one hole of mini-golf.  Many teams also participated in the boat decorating and team t-shirt contests.  The event is held to raise money to help improve the lake, and organizers say it's an enjoyable way to make that money.

"This is probably one of our most fun events; a lot of people come out and just enjoy the day, today's a beautiful day, they get a chance to go around and see all of our local establishments - we have 13 of them total - they just come out and have fun and enjoy all of the resources that we have available for them," said Tim Lovett, president of the Lake Improvement Association.

Around 150 to 170 teams participated in this year's Barstool Open.
