Despite Brett Melton’s best attempts to catch Jon Jozefowski
during the final round of the Indianapolis Open, he fell just a couple of shots
short. Jozefowski had a nearly flawless, bogey-free round today at Highland G
& CC and posted a 5-under-par 65, for a two day total of 131 and his first
Indiana Section PGA win.
“I was pretty pumped up all day,” said Jozefowski, an
Assistant Professional at Woodstock GC. “The
course is in perfect shape and it doesn’t hurt to have your best friend on the
bag. Tyler (caddie) kept me in it today
when I needed him and helped me stay confident.”
In two days of tournament play, Jozefowski only carded one
bogey, along with 10 birdies, and proved he can compete with the city’s top
“This win really helps me gain more confidence,” Jozefowski
said. “It shows I can compete with some
really good players and I hope to continue to play well for the rest of the
summer. I’m really glad my family and
friends were here to share this moment with me.
It really means a lot.”
Jozefowski turned professional in the fall of 2013 after
participating on the University of Indianapolis Men’s Golf Team for four
years. He plans to play in as many
Indiana Golf events as his schedule allows this summer and he has set the bar
high for the remainder of his season.
Melton of the Country Club of Old Vincennes also had an
impressive tournament. He finished the
event at 7-under-par, with a two day total of 151. This is Melton’s first runner-up finish of
the 2014 tournament season.
Greenwood’s Sean Rowen had a tremendous round of 6-under-par
64 today, which secured him a third place finish along with Richmond’s Skip Runnels,
and Quinn Griffing of Donald Ross GC.
