As the day progressed, several players in the field were in contention, but it was Steger who came out on top – winning the event by three shots.
“I felt nervous heading to hole 8 after grabbing a share of the lead,” said 2010 Indiana Amateur Champion, Eric Steger. “I tried to remind myself that I had a lot of golf left and I tried to take my focus off of my score.”
Timothy Wiseman, Corydon, also made a run at today’s title – grabbing his first share of the lead today after three birdies in his opening seven holes. He posted a tournament total of 10-under-par, 206, which was enough for a runner-up finish.
