KELLY GRASSEL SHATTERS GLASS CEILING
AT 35TH ZIGFIELD TROY OPEN
June 26, 2016

Since 2011, Kelly Grassel of Chesterton, IN has had four top-4 finishes in the Zigfield Troy Open. After missing last year’s 3-man playoff by one stroke, she vowed that one day she would win the male dominated championship. On her next chance she did it in style, overcoming adversity on her 17th hole, where she saved bogey with a chip-in, and then going birdie-birdie in a dramatic two hole sudden-death playoff, overcoming the strong efforts of Kevin Flack of Belvedere, IL.

Grassel and Flack were grouped together in the final round and both finished the 36 hole par 3 tournament at 1-under 107. At the first playoff hole of 117 yards, Grassel hit a mediocre tee shot that left her 45 feet short of the pin. Flack then hit an excellent shot to within 7 feet. Grassel made her bomb which was then answered confidently by Flack. At the 135 yard 2nd, Grassel hit a superb shot to 9 feet on the elevated green. Flack then pulled his tee shot into the rough left of the green leaving a difficult pitch up to the green that sloped away from him. He did well leaving himself about 16 feet for par. Having to make the putt, he stroked it firmly by the cup on the high side. Grassel then took her time and made a perfect roll into the center of the cup becoming the first woman, and the third member of her family, to win the traditional Zigfield Troy Straw Hat.

Currently a Florida Gator golfer, Kelly Grassel adds to her resume of two Indiana High School titles, the Big Ten Freshman of the Year award, and a 20th place finish in this year’s NCAA Championship. Flack’s play meanwhile continued his hot streak which includes winning the recent Pine Hills Invitational and Melvin Ballard Memorial in Rockford.
