It took a monumental collapse for it to happen, but Adam Fields (right) achieved a rare and coveted feat Sunday at Green Valley Golf Club.
The 30-year-old Sioux City native and Pottawattamie County sheriff’s deputy came from behind to win the Tri-State Masters by one shot and complete a career grand slam of “major” golf titles.
Fields, who bested Corey Matthey by a stroke, added the Tri-State crown to his Men’s City (2009) ,three River-Cade Amateur (2013-14-15) and Interstate Amateur (2016) victories.
That alone is noteworthy enough, but Fields prevailed after starting the day eight shots behind Des Moines resident Sam Pieczyznki, who completely unraveled after two superb rounds.
