Andy Krajewski wins the 14th Zigfield Troy Open

Andy Krajewski took advantage of soft greens and used his prior experience to win the 14th annual Zigfield Troy Open, held at Woodridge’s Zigfield Troy Par 3 Golf Course over the weekend of August 5 and 6. Rains over the previous three days made the small greens soft, enabling six golfers, including Krajewski at one under par 53, to shoot scores under the par of 54. Krajewski began Sunday’s round with a double bogey on the second hole, but then threaded a string of pars to finish the front nine at two over par. It was on the back nine that the Professional from Naperville was able to reach back for his ZTO experience as a past champion and string together three birdies, ironically beginning on the 132 yard second hole (his 11th of the day). After a par on the fifth hole, Krajewski birdied the 111 yard sixth hole (his 15th hole) and then cruised home with all pars for a back nine 23, four under par, which was the lowest nine hole total ever for a ZTO winner. His total 105 was two better than Gary Beckman and Tim Cordes, who played to one under par totals of 107. The two-time winner owns the distinction of winning in 1986 as an amateur and now in 1995 as a Professional.
