Golfer Dave Allan '02, Preparing to Turn Pro, Defends His Title in Cincinnati Tourney

June 24, 2003

June 24, 2003, Greencastle, Ind. - "David Allan didn't start the Met like the defending champion Monday, and he said his swing definitely didn't feel winning. His experience, however, helped him remain in the running for a second crown" in the Greater Cincinnati Golf Association Metropolitan Amateur Championship, writes Colleen Kane in today's Cincinnati Enquirer. The tournament is being played at the Oasis Golf Club. "Allan had a home course behind him Monday. The 2002 graduate of DePauw took a job in the golf shop at Oasis after winter golf in Phoenix. He needed a place to play to prepare for turning pro at the end of summer."

The story notes that "Allan shot 4-over on the first five holes, but rebounded to finish in the top seven at 2-under 70. The comeback included an eagle on hole No. 15 and birdies on 7, 9, 11, 12 and a tough 18." The 23-year-old Allan tells the newspaper, "My golf swing has been awful lately -- as bad as I've hit probably since I went to college, but the only difference is now I'm a little more experienced. I can kick it around a little and find something that works. I tried to shorten it up and keep it in play."
