Fair Maintains Lead, Edges Steger In State Open
Brownsburg’s Seth Fair set the tone early and never relinquished his lead en route to winning the 98th Indiana State Open on Thursday at the Hawthorns Golf & Country Club.
Fair, a National Golf Association Tour (NGA) member who has won $13,000 this season, ended the 72-hole championship winning by 4 strokes, the same margin he held entering the final 18-hole round against Noblesville’s Eric Steger.
Fair and Steger, the State Amateur titlist in 2010, both carded par-72s on Thursday.
Fair finished at minus-11 (177) and Steger minus-7 (281).
Fair’s 4-round scores were 67-71-67-72; Steger shot 72-68-69-72.
