In the midst of two significant accomplishments – advancing as an individual to the Regionals of the NCAA Men’s Golf National Tournament to be held May 19-21 near his hometown and graduating from Ball State University, Eric Steger also dominated the 156-player field at the E-Z-GO Indianapolis Open presented by TLC Monday. Windy conditions and thick rough at Brickyard Crossing proved challenging for much of the field, but Steger was able to card eight birdies during the day to shoot 68 and gain a 2-shot advantage heading into Tuesday’s final round.
Blair Shadday fired a 70, and Ryan Ford and Patrick Kundenreich (a) both shot 71.
The field was cut to low 60 scores and ties at 78. See first round results and final round pairings here.
