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.
