Blaum wins Waterloo Open, Juffers wins amateur title

WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Ryan Blaum's first trip to the Waterloo Open was a memorable one.  The Florida native finished the weekend at 14 under and won a 3-hole playoff to win the professional championship at the Waterloo Open.  The victory netted Blaum a $60,000 payday.

Blaum finished the 36 hole event tied with Trevor Murphy of Scottsdale, Arizona.  The 2 golfers traded blows picking up pars on the first 2 playoff holes moving them to the 18th at Irv Warren Golf Course.  Blaum hit his tee shot about 12 feet from the cup, then buried his birdy attempt for the biggest paycheck of his career.

Ben Juffers of Des Moines and Brian Verduyn of Clive would go to a playoff in the amateur division after finishing 9 under for their 3 round weekend.  Juffers hit his second shot on the par 5 1st hole, the first of the playoff, within 9 feet of the pin.  He then rolled his eagle attempt to the bottom of the cup to pick up the victory knocking Verduyn out of the playoff.
