Constable wins Waterloo Open in a sudden-death playoff

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Last year at this time, Donald Constable of Minnesota was struggling mightily in his first year on the PGA tour. On Sunday, Constable won the Waterloo Open championship and the $55,000 first place prize in a playoff with Jeffery Kellen of Oklahoma.

Constable entered the final round at 10 under par, three shots behind the leader.  Constable shot a final round score of 6 under par 66 to take the clubhouse lead at 16 under.

Constable had to wait more than an hour for the other golfers to finish and find out he'd be playing in a three-hole sudden death playoff with Kellen. 

Both golfers birdied the first playoff holes and then hit great tee shots into the second playoff hole at the Par-3 17th.

Kellen missed his short birdie putt before Constable made his birdie attempt for the Championship.
