A year ago, Jay Haas ran away with the Principal Charity Classic winning by 5 shots at Glen Oaks.
This year, it was a different story with a new course with new challenges and a much tighter leaderboard coming down the stretch.
It was helped by three solid weather days at the Wakonda Country Club.
Fans mapping out where to watch from…
Russ Cochran makes a big move. The lefty drains the bird to take the outright lead at -9
Defending champion, Jay Haas – just missing the birdie on 18 – shot a 68 on the final day. Haas finishes at -7.
Mark Calcavecchia and Kirk Triplett both finish the day on -9.
Cochran finishes the day at -11, making him the clubhouse leader.
Only one guy can catch him, Jay Don Blake. Requiring a birdie on the approach to 18, he sticks it within feet of the pin.
Blake gets the opportunity to putt for a playoff. Not today, Blake sends it wide.
Russ Cochran wins the Principal Charity Classic.
