Pinotti "Walks On Water" Sweeps Louisville Open

Jerry Pinotti, winner of the Louisville Open on the PPA Indiana State Tour.

17 May 2003 - Louisville, KY - Rain again. This time it was so bad, course owner Tim Greenert had to use a wet vac to clear holes 13 and 15 before practice could begin. That didn't bother Jerry Pinotti, who used his knowledge of the wet carpets on course 1 at Louisville to win the "Louisville Open" and card his first professional victory on the Indiana Professional Putters Tour. Jerry used a first round 11 under par 25 to take a 3 shot lead over Shawn Gilliland and Tom Russell. His second round 7 under par 29 kept him one stroke ahead of Gilliland who fired a 9 under par 27. Pinotti closed with a 9 under par 27 and a 2 shot win over Shawn Gilliland who finished with an 83. Danny Holcomb finished third with a 24 under par 84.

In Match Play Pinotti continued his strong play as he worked through the field winning 2 of his 3 matches in Sudden Death and then defeating Danny Holcomb in the 36 hole final.
