Follow the 81st Iowa Masters
One of Iowa’s oldest and most prestigious tournaments gets underway this weekend when Veenker Memorial Golf Course in Ames hosts the 81st Iowa Masters. Gene Elliott will look to defend his title in the Open Division while Ron Peterson looks to win the Senior title for the second straight year.
Elliott’s 2017 title was his third overall in the Iowa Masters, all coming since 2009. His 11-under par total of 205 was two shots clear of four-time champion Jon Brown. Brown recently won the IGA Match Play for the third time in his career. Both Elliott and Brown are members of the Iowa Golf Hall of Fame.
Peterson’s win in 2017 was a runaway. He posted 5-under par 211 while his closest pursuers were 12 shots back.
The tournament kicks off with round 1 on Friday, July 6th and wraps up with the 3rd and final round on Sunday, July 8th. There is a cut after 36 holes.
