Werner Wins Senior Open by One

May 14th, 2014

Dyer’s Terry Werner held on just long enough today at the Indiana PGA Senior Open at Morris Park CC presented by Yamaha – Golf Cars +. Werner began the day with a two-shot lead over Quinn Griffing of Donald Ross GC, but as the day progressed Ted Kaperak proved to be Werner’s biggest competition. Kaperak carded a 1-under-par 69 today and finished the tournament at 2-over-par.

Meanwhile, Werner saw himself at 2-over-par, also, with just two holes left to play. Werner hit his approach shot close on the par 4, 17th hole and made his birdie putt to get back to 1-over-par.

"I started hitting the ball better on the last six holes,” Werner said. "But I have to admit I still felt a little nervous on 18 because I knew I needed a par to win.”

With an easy two-putt par on 18, Werner captured his first Senior Open victory.

"It feels terrific,” Werner said. "This was a great field with so many good players. It feels good to see that all of my hard work paid off. I feel pretty accomplished.”

Griffing finished alone in third at 3-over-par.
