Miller says the Waterloo Open is part of Iowa’s grand slam of golf. The first event was held last weekend in the Quad Cities, this weeks Waterloo activities will then be followed by the Cedar Rapids Open. Miller says a 25 thousand dollar bonus from Warren Transports will be given out should a participant win both the Waterloo and Cedar Rapids tournament.
