Action began with a four-round tourney on the often fickle and dangerous Course 1. Sometimes baffling on a good day, Course 1 really showed its teeth today as the players battled cool temperatures and strong winds which turned the tournament into the Putt-Putt version of the British Open.  In the end, it was Louisville local star Jerry Pinotti making the rest of the field say Bollocks! as he used his home-course knowledge to win the tourney with a 35-under par 109.  Kevin Lacey, the 2008 PPA National Champion, was second at 112. Greenert took third with 114, and 1968 National Champion Bob Marcellino, another Louisville local, finished in fourth at 117 to take the last cash spot.

Pinotti, half of the 2009 PPA National Doubles champions, lapped the field early with a 24. Greenert shot a 25, and two other players had a 29 on the tough course.  Pinotti crafted 28's in Rounds 2 and 3. Lacey, with a third-round 26, was the only player to beat 28 in those two rounds. With one round to go, Pinotti had a four-stroke lead over Lacey and Greenert.  In the last round, Pinotti shot a steady 29 to turn away all challengers.  Marcellino carded a finishing 28 to clinch cash.

In the amateur division, high school junior Brandon Davis continued to add to his APA victory total with an eight-shot win. Currently learning how to drive a car, he continued his drive to be the best amateur in the country.  The 2009 IPT Player of the Year and match-play champion, Davis shot a 113, including a second-round 24. Rick Ossenfort was second at 121.
