Noblesville, Ind. (May 5, 2012) -- Sean Rowen admitted he was a little shaky yesterday on his way to an opening round 71 at the Tournament of Champions at Fox Prairie GC.

“I played in the Mid-Am Team a few weeks ago but this was my first individual tournament of the year,” said Rowen.

Rowen shook off the rust quickly in the final round carding a 67 and posting three birdies on the back nine.

“I definitely got more aggressive coming down the stretch,” said Rowen. “I hit driver almost everywhere on the back.”

The only real difference Rowen saw between his first and second round was just convincing a few more putts to fall into the hole. His lone bogey of the day came at hole 11. After hitting his tee shot into the left rough, Rowen knocked his second shot over the green and could not get up and down for par.

This win marks Rowen’s third victory in the last nine months in IGA tournaments. He will defend his Indianapolis Amateur and Mid-Amateur titles later this summer.

Kenny Cook, Noblesville, was 5 under at the turn but made a bogey at hole 12 and missed a short par putt at 17 to fall back to 3 under par.

First round co-leaders Sam Till, Jr. and Terry Werner posted second rounds of 74 and 73, respectively.
