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 plan
s to play in several more events this summer, including the State Open at the Ross Course at French Lick Resort.
