WESTON, Mass. – Former men’s golfer Ian Thimble, who turned professional after earning a degree in business administration from Monmouth University, claimed his first career victory after capturing the 105th Massachusetts Open this past weekend at the par-72 Weston Golf Club.
“I am very excited for Ian on his first professional tournament victory,” commented Head Coach Dennis Shea. “It was an impressive win for him and this could be the start of a wonderful career. He has all the tools to be a great player and the win could provide him with the confidence he needs to take his game to the next level.”
Thimble ended the 54-hole tournament in a four-way tie for first after carding rounds of 71 (-1), 67 (-5), 73 (+1) good for a total of 211. In the three-hole playoff, the two-time all-conference performer sank a birdie on the par-4 16th, while saving par on both the 17th and 18th to secure the win.
