Louisville – Daniel Iceman III and Alex Martin were anything but ice cold the past two days as the duo won the TaylorMade-adidas Pro-Pro-Indy with a 15-under par 94 for the 27 hole tournament. During the first round, the partners fired a 4-under par 31, which left them several shots behind the leaders. However, in the shootout, Iceman’s game got red hot, and that play continued into the front nine of the final 18 holes as Iceman shot a 29 on his own ball leading the team to an 11-under par 61 for the day. The 27 hole total of 94 was good enough for a two-stroke victory over the always tough duo of Keith Ohr and John Bachman. Finishing in third place were overnight leaders Blake and Logan Watts.
In the individual race, Keith Ohr held off the hot playing Daniel Iceman with his own 6-under par 66 for a two-day total of 8-under par 99 for a three-shot victory. Iceman finished in second at 102, and third place was Blake Watts. In the Senior Division, the ole pro from Frankfort, Kirk Schooley won with a 27-hole total of 109.
