Leaver takes things one step at a time to win GCRO

An early wedding present? Umm, probably not. One is led to believe Grant Leaver might have not been planning that far ahead in this case. He’s more a man of the moment and what needs to be handled at that time is handled.

That’s why he’s the winner of the $25,000 first-place prize of the 19th annual TrueNorth Greater Cedar Rapids Open, presented by Granite City Food & Brewery.

Leaver, 31, held off an array of challengers to win the GCRO by three shots, shooting a 17-under-par 199. The slim, 6-foot-7 Leaver, out of Centerville, TN, does need to keep his calendar open for a Sept. 9 wedding date. But Saturday at Hunters Ridge Golf Course in Marion, it was all about handling the moment one step at a time.
