Moorman, Cook, Studer win titles at Southeast Iowa Amateur
Players faced difficult scoring conditions all weekend at The Preserve at Rathbun Lake, but in the end Alex Moorman, Terry Cook & David Studer handled the tough setting the best.
Moorman, of Centerville, won the title in the Open Division by six shots. He opened with a 3-under 69 on Saturday and then shot a 2-under 70 on Sunday morning. The tournament format calls for a final 9 holes on Sunday afternoon for those that make the championship flight, and Moorman fired a 1-under 35 on the front 9. J.D. Anderson, of Johnston, finished in second (70-75-35).
Cook, of Johnston, earned his title in the Senior Division with a playoff victory over Joe Bates, of Albia. Cook went 76-73 (seniors don’t play a final 9 holes) while Bates reversed that with a 73-76. Cook then won on the first playoff hole.
David “Doc” Studer won the inaugural playing of the Super Senior Division (65+) at the Southeast Iowa Amateur. “Doc”, of West Des Moines, opened with a 2-over-par 74 and closed with a 77 on Sunday. He finished well in front of second place Tim Taylor (85-77) of Ankeny.
