In one of the top tournament scores for the Defiance/Budweiser city golf tournament, Bill Meyer claimed his third title with a two-day score of a six-under par 137 over the weekend.

Bill shot a 68 on the first day, at Auglaize and then a 69 at Eagle Rock on Sunday. Bill has now won two of the last three tournaments. Steve Meyer, the all-time leader with 15 wins, finished two shots back in second with a four-under par 139.

Corbin Stykemain finished third, with a three-under 140.

“It may have happened before, but it’s pretty rare when the top three all finish under par in this tournament, “ Steve Meyer said. “Usually, if you finish under par, you’re the winner.”

The Meyers and Stykemain concluded the first day at Auglaize in a three way tie, at 68. Stykemain shot a 71 on the second day.

Bill then increased his lead to as much as five strokes, by hole 12.

“I think the hard part is when you get a good sized lead, it gets tougher, because you start to play conservative, not wanting to do anything to mess yourself up,” Bill Meyer said. “Steve made a little push, but towards the end, he missed a putt and I made one, to give myself some breathing room. It may be one of the best two rounds in the tournament and it’s certainly the best (overall) score I’ve had in this tournament.”

“I’m 50 now and I’ve finally found my golf game,” Bill said with a chuckle.
