WAUSAU, Wisc. (August 26, 2014) — Despite trailing the leader by six shots heading into the final round, Richard Pfeil continued his steady play at the Wisconsin Senior Amateur and wound up victorious after a two-hour rain delay at Greenwood Hills Country Club.

Pheil shot 74 on Monday, and was six back of first-round leader Paul Zarek. But Zarek, and James Green who shot 69 on Monday, both struggled to 79s on Tuesday, allowing Pheil and his 74 to sneak into the lead by just one stroke.

Zarek finsihed in second while Green finished in third, along with defending champion Ramiro Romo.
