Parker claims 86th Iowa Masters by one
Waukee’s Griffin Parker (above left) opened with 65 and never looked back at the 86th Iowa Masters, hosted by Veenker Memorial Golf Course.
Parker, who made 16 birdies over the 54-hole event, led from start to finish, carding rounds of 65-70-72 for a one-shot victory over Ames’ Zach May. May, coming off of recent wins at the IGA Match Play and Carroll Amateur, closed with 67 in the final round to pull within one of Parker’s 207 (-9) total.
In the Senior Division, Jay Gregory (above middle) was a model of consistency as he outdistanced Joe Palmer by four shots to win. Gregory fired rounds of 69-70-70 for his 209 (-7) total.
Bob Brooks (above right) continued his winning ways in the Super Senior Division, winning by seven over Tom Schill. Brooks (-2) posted rounds of 70-69-75 for a 214 total.
