Wiseman’s pro debut nets 15th-place finish
Upon graduation recently from Ball State University, Timothy Wiseman of Corydon began his professional career in golf at the Indiana Open Championship last week.
The 54-hole tournament saw Wiseman, 22, place tied for 15th overall. Played at Otter Creek Golf Club in Columbus, Wiseman shot a 3-under par score of 213. The previous best finish for Wiseman at the Indiana Open was 20th, coming in 2018.
This time around, Wiseman bounced back after a 1-over par 73 on day one with a blistering 3-under par round of 69. The final day of competition, after a cut to the low-70 scores, Wiseman carded a 1-under par 71 last Wednesday.
For the 54 holes, Wiseman collected 12 birdies, 33 pars and nine bogeys. The par-5s were particularly strong for the 2018 U.S. Open qualifier, who played the course at 6-under on those holes for the tourney.
The tournament winner was Michael Davan of Zionsville, who shot a 17-under 199 during the three days. Rounds of 63 and 65 on the final two days propelled Davan, who had 21 total birdies, to the top of the leaderboard.
Joey Wiseman, a recent Corydon Central High School graduate, participated as an amateur, finishing 70th at 13-over par.
After shooting a 77 at the conclusion of his opening round, Joey bounced back with a solid 1-over par 73. Back for a third round, Joey fired a 79. He closed with seven total birdies.
Joey Wiseman will compete at Ball State in the fall.
