Elliott rallies for Waterloo Open amateur title

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Gene Elliott erased a 6 stroke deficit on the final day to win the 2011 amateur title at the Waterloo Open.

Elliott started the day 6 strokes behind Marion's Justin Pansegrau.  Pansegrau, however, would struggle, as both golfers came to the 16th hole at 7 under par.  Elliott would birdy the 16th, while Pansegrau nailed a clutch 25 foot putt at the 18th to force a playoff.

Both competitors matched each other through the first three holes posting a birdy and 2 pars.  Elliott's birdy on the 4th playoff hole would clinch the title.
