Till and Werner Tied at 68

May 4th, 2012

Noblesville, Ind. -

Ten months after teaming up to win the 2011 IGA Senior Team Championship, Sam Till, Jr. and Terry Werner will go head-to-head in the final round of the 2012 IGA Tournament of Champions at Fox Prairie GC on Saturday.  Till, of Fort Wayne, and Werner, Dyer, both shot opening round 68s at the two-day, stroke play event. 

Till, with an early Friday tee time, was long gone from the course before he heard Werner tied his 68 to share the lead with him.

That is funny, said Till.  Well have a good time tomorrow.  We play a lot of golf together so well enjoy the round.

Other than a short missed putt at 17, Till was very pleased with his work on the greens.

I really got the putter going today, said Till.  Im usually a better ball striker but I was very happy with the way I putted.

Werner was the last group off the course and immediately joked about his final round pairing. 

I started and finished the round with a bogey but played solid golf in between, said Werner.  Im happy with the way I am playing right now.

Lurking just one shot back are Tim Brown, Joe Hayden, and Kenny Cook.  Cook won the Indiana Section PGA Southern Open on Monday at Harrison Lake CC.
