Blakeman wins Waterloo Open title

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Mark Blakeman's first trip to the Waterloo Open was a memorable one.  The Kentucky native used a strong second day to secure a one stroke victory and capture the $55,000 top prize.
Blakeman opened the day two strokes behind the leaders, but great play on Irv Warren's par 5 holes catapulted him to the front.  Blakeman played the 5 par 5 holes 7 under par in his final round.  That total included 3 eagles.
Runner-up Eric Cole had a chance to tie Blakeman on the final hole, but his birdy putt came up just short and left.
