DalCorobbo Maintains Hot Streak with Senior Open Win

June 7th, 2016

Coming into Tuesday’s final round of the Indiana PGA Senior Open at Sultan's Run GC, John DalCorobbo’s four stroke lead seemed nearly insurmountable following his Monday score of 4-under-par, 68.  However, after carding bogeys on his opening two holes and having to deal with strong wind and tough playing conditions, winning wasn’t a guarantee.

DalCorobbo responded well, though, posting a 1-over-par, 71 and winning the tournament by four strokes, with a two-day total of 3-under-par, 141.

“The first few holes the wind direction shifted, the greens felt faster, and I hit it in a few bad spots," said DalCorobbo of Brickyard Crossing.  “But it was difficult for everybody.  I hung in there on the back nine and birdied both par-5s.”

Last year, DalCorobbo finished second in this event so he was excited to grab a victory this year.

Bob Jacobs of Valparaiso was two strokes behind DalCorobbo heading into the final hole.  He finished runner-up, after watching DalCorobbo sink a long birdie putt on 18 for the win.  Jacobs posted a two-day total of 1-over-par, 145 and was the low amateur in this event.

“Bob played great,” DalCorobbo said.  “I really thought we were closer than we were heading into 18.”

DalCorobbo has had a tremendous two weeks of tournament play, after recently finishing seventh at the Senior PGA Championship.  He plans to play in several more events this summer, including the State Open at the Ross Course at French Lick Resort.
