Noblesville, IN. - Chris Montagano and Ivan Foster began the day just one shot out of the lead at the Indiana PGA Team Championship at Purgatory Golf Club.  As the day progressed, Foster's putter kept getting hotter and the team proved to be a force to be reckoned with.  Montagano and Foster posted a two-day total of 129, with an impressive 63 coming in their final round.

"We got off to a good start," said Montagano, the Assistant Professional at Sycamore Hills Golf Club.  "We played well on the front nine and Ivan putted great all day."

Their round consisted of eight birdies coming on holes 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 11, 14, and 16.  And Montagano sunk a 55 foot eagle putt on 18 for the win.

"We both played pretty well.  Our birdie on one today was definitely a highlight for us," said Foster, the Head Professional at Bridgewater Golf Club.  "Our eagle on eighteen didn't hurt either," Montagano added.

Their win earned them each a $1000 prize.

Finishing just two strokes behind was Indianapolis's John DalCorobbo and Brownburg's Jeff Schultz.
