WOODRIDGE, IL (June 26, 2016) -- A year after finishing one shot out of a playoff at the Zigfield Troy Open Kelly Grassel won the title in a playoff. Grassel finished 1-under and tied with Kevin Flack after 36-holes meaning that a playoff was needed.

It took two holes but Grassel, a senior at Florida, was finally able to claim the Zigfield Troy Open.

Raymond Knoll and Bill White both finished tied for third at even-par and one-stroke out of the playoff.


“Bombers” need not apply. This is one tournament where precision iron accuracy and a sharp chipping and putting game are essential. Welcome to the famous Zigfield Troy Open, one of the premier Par- 3 golf tournaments in America.

The Par-3 tournament honors course founder Zigfield Troy and is one of the few Par-3 events anywhere that is run like a PGA Tour event or other professional tournaments. Golfers’ names are announced on the first tee prior to tee off. A huge scoreboard highlights everyone’s name, score for each round, plus totals and the round’s leaders – all done in handsome professional calligraphy.
