August 18, 2011
— Oklahoma State Cowboys recruit Jordan Niebrugge of Mequon rode hard over Blackwolf Run’s back nine Wednesday and posted a 5-under-par 67 to win the 91st Wisconsin State Open.

The 18-year-old amatuer finished at 6-under-par 282 and one shot ahead of Appleton’s Pat Duffy. Janesville amatuer Matt Behm finished tied for 25th, 17 shots off the lead at 299.


Niebrugge started the day three shots behind Duffy. The outcome was decided on the final hole when Niebrugge parred and Duffy failed to two-putt from 50 feet for a tie.


A bunker shot on No. 10 and par save started Niebrugge’s back- nine run. Niebrugge made a 25-foot eagle putt at 11 and birdied Nos. 12 and 16.


Duffy finished with a par 71 and a 283 total. Third-round leaders Charlie Delsman of Colgate and Dan Zimmerman of Verona finished three and seven shots behind, respectively.


Niebrugge is believed to be the youngest winner of the event since 1948.
