Kenny Cook has been named the 2012 IGA John K. David Player of the Year. Cook began the 2012 season strong with a first place finish at the Indiana PGA Southern Open at Harrison Lake Country Club. His 3-under par, 69, was enough to win by a two shot margin over Bob Stephens.
In Cook’s second tournament of the year, the IGA Tournament of Champions, he fired a 2-under par, 69, during his opening round and paired that with a 1-under par 70 the following day for a second place finish.
Cook also participated in this year’s U.S. Open Qualifier at The Olympic Club, The United States Amateur at Cherry Hills Country Club, and the United States Mid-Amateur at Conway Farms Golf Club.
“Its quite an honor. There are so many good players in the state of Indiana, so much talent. It is really special to me to receive this award,” said Cook.
Bob Stephens has been named the IGA Senior Player of the Year. Stephens won three tournaments this season including: The Indiana PGA Southern Open in the Senior Division, the IGA McDonald’s Stroke Play Series, and the IGA Four Ball with partner Joe Hillman.
Stephens has also had seven top five finishes and three top ten finishes this season. His low score came at the IGA McDonald’s Stroke Play Series where he fired an impressive 4-under par, 68.
“This is quite an honor and something I never expected to win,” said Stephens.
