WOODRIDGE, IL (July 2, 2017) - A year after finishing tied for third and one shot out of a playoff Raymond Knoll has won the Zigfield Troy Open.

The recent Iowa graduate finished the par-3 tournament 7-under and as the five-stroke winner following tallies of 50-51.

At Iowa, Knoll was a two-time second team All-Big 10 selection and also finished his career by being named to the Division I PING All-Midwest Regional Team three consecutive years.

Tres Steffey (-2) finished second, Andy Roderique (-1) and Chris Beyer (-1) shared third while Kirk Blakney (+1) and Michael Fastert (+1) tied for fifth.

Defending champion Kelly Grassel (+2) who just wrapped up her career at Florida finished in a tie for seventh.


“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.
