Sunday night is the final-hole showdown of the KSL Cup Celebrity Challenge on KSL Golf. Ned Siegfried will face off against his attorney partner Mitch Jensen as part of the KSL Golf show on Sportsbeat on KSL Channel 5 at 11 p.m.

Last week Siegfried and Jensen played the first two holes of this three-hole match at Willow Creek Country Club in Sandy.

They played holes 11, 12 and 13.

Jensen struck first on the par 3 11th with a 177-yard tee shot to 36 feet away. He would 2 putt for par.

Siegfried’s tee shot landed left of the green and missed his par putt for a bogey.

So Jensen had a one-shot lead heading to the par 5, 525-yard 12th. Jensen's tee shot split the fairway, while Siegfried found the right side and behind a tree.

While Jensen found the green and had a 21-foot birdie putt, Siegfried’s third shot bounced over the green and he had a difficult chip of about 15 yards. His chip shot ended 15 feet below the cup. Jensen ran his birdie putt to within a couple of inches and tapped in for par.

Siegfried needed to sink the 15-foot par putt to avoid falling behind by two shots with one hole to play. As his putt was rolling right of the cup, Siegfried was watching closely to see if he had judged the speed and the right to left break correctly.

“Boom!” Siegfried yelled while pumping his fist as his ball curved in and dropped in for a par save.

After two holes, Jensen held a one-shot lead over his partner Siegfried.

Sunday night, watch the final and deciding hole to see if Jensen can hang on or if Siegfried can make a comeback.
