Troy Grooms wins Laurel Oaks Classic

Troy Grooms shot a three-under 69 today and won the Laurel Oaks Classic by two shots.

Grooms had a two-day total of eight-under 136.

Jackson Frame, Deron Feldhaus and Tyler Lippert tied for second place with 138s.

Grooms began the day four shots off the lead. He was two shots behind Frame and one back of first round leader and three-time champion Mark Moore at the turn today.

Bogeys by Frame and Moore on No. 10 left Frame with a one-shot lead over Moore and Grooms.

The lead changed hands on the par 3 16th with a birdie by Grooms and a bogey by Frame. Grooms took a two-shot lead with a birdie on No. 17. Grooms and Frame both parred No. 18.

Moore, who fired a 63 on Saturday, shot a 40 on the back side today and finished five shots back.

It's Grooms' first Laurel Oaks Classic title.

"Very exciting, very happy right now," Grooms said.
