Sam Van Galder has dominated the Men's City Tournament the last seven years.

Will the trend continue in 2014?

Van Galder will look to win his third straight city title when the 54-hole tourney begins Friday at Riverside Golf Course.

Round two is at Glen Erin, followed by Sunday's 18-hole finale at the Janesville Country Club.

In winning his fourth title in the last seven years a year ago, Van Galder finished with a 219 total and a nine-shot victory over runner-up Bobby Kennedy.

Four-time champion Matt Behm is in the field, along with three-time champion Brad Bohlman.
